ugly ugly car if you ask me (not a fan of Giugiaro's styling). For the money I'd have an Aston, which is a bit less "HEY LOOK AT ME". Lamborghinis tend to be owned by ostentatious wankers in my experience.

and that you never have to trade in on a new one. A Jaguar Mark II 3.8 for example. If someone gave me a new Lambo I'd sell it and buy one of these and have enough left over to buy several more great old cars.

I would see these when I lived in Los Angeles. Not in the D.C. area, where I live now. High-end cars are rare here.

Neon green convertible, I have no idea the specific model. My wife said "It looks squashed."

25 years ago, I saw my first, it belonged to Wilt Chamberlin, he had his own parking spot at an upscale seafood place on the PCH. The driver's contour seat had been pulled from the vehicle, replaced with old floral sofa cushions. I assume Wilt was too big to fit the seats that came with the car.
