Oh my. Very Nice!
I have a friend here in the Chicago area with the exact same color combo.
Good for you, enjoy it, and post more photos when you can.

Well, 6 months have past. Wanted to give you guys an update sooner, but you know how it goes sometimes. Here it is, better late than never. I have good news and bad news.
The bad news first. I just couldn't justify paying what the owner wanted with all the unknowns. I passed. As it turns out, a buyer with much deeper pockets than me ended up paying the full asking price. Wow! No hard feelings and I wish the new owner luck that the repairs will not be outrageous. I kind of know the mechanic who will be working on the car. Out of curiosity, I will try to find out all that was wrong when he works on it and keep you posted.
Now for the good news. Shortly after all this, (while still in depression) I got a call that another owner wanted to sell his Countach. Its an all original 1987 US car, 1 owner, great original paint, perfect interior, low miles, clutch recently replaced, all books, tools, and records. The best part is that it was fairly priced; not all that much more than what the owner of the frozen motor wanted! I am proud to say that after seriously looking for the past 2 years (not counting fantasizing for the past 30) I am finally the owner of a Countach!! I'm driving it as much as I can and am absolutely thrilled. I can't thank you guys enough for all of your advise and am SO glad that I was patient. I put a couple pics of my new dream car below.
I imagine you've saved yourself quite a lot of heartache and expense! Hopefully your new found love treats you fairly! I would say to be certain that you know whom performed the servicing and what that shop's reputation is in the real world. Many Lambo's are sold with "complete servicing", that was poorly performed...sometimes the cars are better off if they were left alone.

Hopefully that isn't case and your diligence pays off. Congrats! (I love the Black w/Gold wheels)

Josh, I couldn't agree with you more. I have contacted a trusted, factory trained Lambo mechanic to keep up with maintenance. Making sure I get the most out of the car and my investment! Don't want the motor to freeze up on this one!
