Yes it was. He put a lot of money into the engine and it shows. It runs beautifully. Paint needs work, it's maybe a 6-7 out of 10, but I figure I'll drive the hell out of it and repaint her some other day.wiz357 said:Very nice! Was that Michael F's old car?
Hi William,Will said:Corncerning the bumpers/fenders, or lack thereof. I thought that US regulations demanded that cars had larger ones. All the US Countachs and Ferrari F40s I have seen have these rather unflattering additions. How come yours doesn't?
A note on your Countach: Arguably the best looking car of all time. I had the very same car / colour adorn my bedroom for my entire childhood and it still ranks as possibly my fave car! Congrats.
Thanks Larry,scramjet said:I will join in the chorus !!
Hmmm. Maybe I should look for a Countach !!
Thanks for the interesting info, John. Here are a couple of links concerning the F40.john said:As far as the F40, I have never seen or heard of bumper additions on the outside of the body, there may be some bracing below the skin that I don't know about.

The Countach has always been my dream car. As my wife says, I have an unhealthy obsession with the Countach. I started my own business just so I could by a Countach before I turned 60. Thanks to my early collecting and eBay I have a huge collection of book and magazines on the Countach that I would read and reread every night. About 2 1/2 yrs ago my wife got sick of me watching the beginning of Cannonball Run and rereading my stash over and over again that she finally said, "why don't you just shut up and buy the car already", (amazing since we had a new born baby). Two months later I had a 1981 LP400S, but I always wanted a downdraft QV. So when this one came along I jumped at it and sold my '81.
