I had the coolest day last Friday!

A friend of mine owns a Lamborghini Diablo. He called me to see if I wanted to ride along with him to go see his car. He is having some engine work, a new clutch put in and few other items.
There is a guy in Gilroy, California that works on Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s only. Some of you may have heard of him Al Burttini? I thought to myself how often will I get to see the inter workings of a Lambo? What a cool place. There were no less than 20 Diablo’s, two Contachs, a Testarossa, two Lamborghini LM’s (Off road 4x4 vehicles) A couple of Lamborghini racecars and of course two Murcielago’s. And there were about a half dozen Lamborghini 12 cylinders engine on engine stands. I was just drooling over these cars. The colors were phenomenal, sunburst pearl essence Yellow, a deep Purple almost Black, Emerald Green, Black, Charcoal, Titanium, Red, and a beautiful midnight Blue. He had six cars for sale in one of his garages. The lowest price was for a 1995 Black Diablo $137,500.00. And the rest where well into the $200K range. I felt so stupid I forgot to bring my camera.
Oh well next time I be sure to take my camera.

Is this where it all began?
