mrlewish: Anybody that cries over the lose of objects that are not theirs is an idiot.


Anyone who can't feel empathy for the loss of something beautiful is a sociopath.

This wasnt a farking original Model-T.

Correct, it was one hell of a lot rarer and more influential.

More influential, because this car mechanized America, right? This Lamborghini was the first car that the average person could afford to buy? I'm sorry, how can a Lamborghini ever be influential as far as anyone is concerned. It's a tiny little niche thing. It will never influence the world. Lamborghini isnt Saab, Saab influences the with their fighter aircraft and light attack munition manufacturing. Saab doesnt even make cars anymore.

Lamborghini makes cars for the super rich. That is about it. If they make IFVs of any-sort I'll withdrawal my argument of their insignificance. But what worth does a sports car have?


Technology trickles down over time to consumer cars.  Your Subaru, Ford, whatever, has a nice computer controlled fuel injected aluminum block engine, a good solid frame, good tires, and a good suspension because that stuff was often first made for sports and racing cars, then adopted for the average consumer.

snocone: Lizardking: I feel bad for anyone who cant understand what a loss this is. You dont even have to like Lamborghinis to get it but all these "How is this a big loss again?" people just make me sad.

It must really suck not having a soul.

It was lost when the asshat bought it.


Jealousy also destroys souls. It just takes a little longer

Lambo only made like, 750 between '66-'72. Easily replaceable? Your life would be more easy to replace than a Miura.

Don't be a douche just for kicks. If you can't appreciate a beautiful piece of machinery, then fine. Keep your mouth shut.

Man On Pink Corner: fuel

hoses

Asa Phelps: The irony is that Lambo or their original supplier probably would have been more than happy to sell him new fuel lines that are the exact same as the factory original from 40 years ago.


Actually, the problem with Muiras was that the carbs would fill with gasoline while the car was idling at a stop, and that fuel would splash out onto the manifold or other hot things, causing it to combust- the lines themselves weren't the problem.

I need to get rid of this Purina Troll Chow before it expires, so here goes: nothing about the Model T has any influence on anything built today.  Even in its day there was nothing very special or interesting about the Model T except for the production advances that made it cheap enough to sell in large quantities.

The Miura's mid-engine design was rare and unconventional in a street car at the time.  It influenced the design of numerous sports cars from the Dino and at least a half-dozen later Ferrari models to the Bertone X1/9 and its spiritual successor, the Toyota MR-2.  You can still see some of its design cues in the current Porsche Boxster and Subaru BR-Z.  It was more than just a pissing contest between Ferruchio Lamborghini and Enzo Ferrari -- it was and still is regarded as one of the most beautiful automobiles ever produced.

This particular one deserved a better owner and/or mechanic, safe to say.


I didn't watch the video, you're probably right about the owner, But in your influences you just brought up more toys for rich people.

Most people cant afford a Toyota, not even a used one.

If you don't care, don't care. But when you act petulantly because other people value something that you don't, and go out of your way to flaunt your ignorance and lack of perceptiveness as if it is something to be proud of, that looks less like apathy and more like childishness.

Wow, you all think I;m some car fan that thinks this thing was a piece of shiat. I dont know the first thing about this car except but what I;ve been told by you all about it.

No, you guys are right. We should bow down and worship this museum worthy car. I could go faster than other cars like it. And it looks pretty too. Not a waste of materiel at all.

threadjackistan: Lsherm: threadjackistan: Awww, a rich person had their easily replaceable automobile catch on fire?

Well, for one, it isn't easily replaceable.

Please explain to me how it isnt easly replaceable. Did it get exceptional gas mileage? Did it have a unique cargo capacity? It what sense is this automobile difficult to replace? Perhapse if had a specialized medical suite in the trunk I might be able to understand.

But I suspect that this was just a rare pokemon car for the super rich. And that it is about as difficult to replace as my old Desert Storm trading cards? What irreplaceable economic function does it provide? Or am I right? Is this just a poor little super rich man lost his toy?


Because it was one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and this jackass didn't properly maintain it or keep a fire extinguisher in it.

There were only 148 of these made. They were only made between 1971 and 1973. How many do you think still exist?

This one, in particular, may have been the very last one in the UK.

If I saw a jet black '81 Corvette burning down, I would start crying hysterically.


Why?

Because television and print media told you to?
Why does a certain brand of car matter so much to you?

Yet another reason why the rich boneheads that never let these investments out of their custom garages may be right.

Go to 3:20 to see why these things like to go up  in flames.

Not a single farking person watching that could conjure up a fire extinguisher?

Actually, if i owned an historic Lamborghini with known fire issues, I'd keep a damn extinguisher in the farking car.
