Listen, I understand that Lamborghinis are built in factories like all other cars, but we see a mental picture of those factories as being filled with skilled craftsmen who are lovingly building these cars which have been engineered to within an inch of their lives and openly weeping when each one drives away. They are Italian, after all. Between the carrying on and the hand gesturing…but I digress. The point I am getting at is that it just seems sacrilegious to go monkeying around with what they created. Listen, I know that lots of these things get hot rodded and I am sure that most of them run like stink and will until the end of time. This one didn’t and the story of how the guy’s whole ownership went down like the Titanic is both maddening and incredible to read.
I am not a blame the victim guy, at least I try not to be. The dude writing this blog got taken to the cleaners by a shop that (if his description of events is accurate) made significant and catastrophic mistakes with a frequency and on a level that can hardly be believed. Honestly, you will read this blog like I did and think, “WHAT?! REALLY?!” at more than one point. There comes a time when reading this account that maybe you’ll have the same mental shift as I did and start yelling at the computer, “WHY DID YOU BRING YOUR CAR BACK THERE? WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” I actually did that loud enough to have my wife ask me if everything was OK in my office. Obviously, there is a trust element in all of this stuff. There’s a trust element in every part of your life. You go to sleep and trust that your wife isn’t going to bury a butcher cleaver between your eyes. You go to pump gas and trust that you won’t suffer a fiery death at pump number 7, and this guy trusted the shop that was wrenching on his car would not render it an exploding, leaking, disaster of an Italian exotic.
You’ll read this and draw your own conclusions but we know one thing. For what that dude has spent on the car (which we think isn’t working at this point) over the last few years, you’d have been able to buy several of your favorite muscle cars in great shape. Money is money and we don’t get hung up on that. A dude spending $140,000 if he has it is like us spending $100 if we have it. That part of the deal is scalable. It is the string of mechanical failures out of this now bastardized Lamborghini that will leave you speechless. It did for me (after I stopped screaming).
