I am an Lambo enthusiast ..... I can also list out the parts I've found to be identical to the Countach if there's interest
Perhaps this might be the way to endear yourself to a few of the others here. While one attempts to build a replica or restore an original, both have to do the same research and put in the same hours trying to find the right parts.
I know this full well, as I am attempting to slowly bring my Countach back to showroom condition. It is a challenging project, since many items are no longer available from Lamborghini and the original suppliers are either out of business or have merged into another corporation that could give diddly twat about the items they originally sold to Lamborghini. I've spent many hours trying to find the original sourced parts from another brand or original equipment supplier.
Due to the famous (at least I think it is) restoration of the Cannonball Countach, it appears there are going to be a few reproduction parts available to replace damaged and inoperable original parts. If I were to use a few of these "new" and "non-original" aftermarket replacement parts, would that denigrate my Countach into the world of kit cars status? Where is the dividing line drawn at?
There appears to be a little middle ground that would require both sides to back down a tad bit. We are all after parts for these obsolete beasts. If we can help each other find them, then we suddenly have some shared common ground between us. I can speak for no one other than myself, but I would be extremely thankful for any original parts sourcing that you may have found, and I would be willing to share mine.
Seems to me a replica is nothing more than the ultimate form of flattery to the original. Remember when Farrah Fawcet (one of the Cannonball Countach "queens") got her big hair? Remember all the "replicas" in every town you passed through? Some were good, some were bad. If the "good" one had propositioned you in your prime bachelor days, would you have denied her because she was not THE original?
Not much unlike this debate, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it would be wise to remember not all of us have the same eyesight. Different strokes to different folks, but why don't we still share what we have in common?
