haha we have one of these every couple of months. had one about two weeks ago. a couple of Enzos showed up along with more ferraris than you can count. There were about 6 or 7 Murcielagos parked next to eachother. a couple of Gallardos, some Diablos etc. same old stuff you see driving around every day there (well the Enzos arent around town much). Naples FL folks gotta love the old rich folks
A few of my friends even snapped some pictures of a Mclaren F1 they saw driving around town one day
Re: does anybody in this forum actually have one? (Mk4VDub_04)
No joke i seriously thought i had one and i was driving it around just me and my friend...and i felt so kool..cause everyone was starring..and it seemed so real...and then i woke up...this dream was about 3 weeks ago...It was awesome.
I sold Diablo VT about 3 years ago. Late 98 with some of the 99 changes. I've seen a few posts from 'talkers' about a 'friends' diablo that was supercharged in Italy, etc, etc. Not quite right. It was my car, well documented fact. I had Eton engineers design the setup. Twin M90's, custom air fresh air intakes from side scoops, custom aluminum runners from blowers to the throttle bodies, pop-off valve, tubi exhaust. Drove it in the 99 Running of the Bulls from LA to Concorso Italiano at the Monterey Peninsula. Car was written up in the Orange County Register, LA Times, North Miami Herald, Historic Online, and several other articles. Actress Lauren Hutton sat in it to give an interview, unfortunately I only got to see the video of her interview, since I was doing one at the same time in a different area. Not sure about posting pics on Vortex but several have been posted in other forums. My son posted some of them on photobucket. During the Running of the Bulls, I ran a VTTT (twin turbo) and easily pulled him from 150 to about 185. Fastest I drove it was 211 on Will Rogers Turnpike between Joplin, Mo. and Tulsa, Ok.
Car was still pulling like a banshee. Eton said theoretical top speed was 240. That would have been in Red Line, but horsepower was definitely there. Picture of Black Lambo above looks identical, but mine had the light beige seats. (can't remember proper color name, but it wasn't light beige). As far as owners being snooty, Absolultely not, not among the Lam borghini crowd. You usually only see that in the Ferrari crowd. Lambo owners are DEFINITELY down to earth. I think some of the engine pics are on the Gallery under 'staley' in the dubspeed racing forums. Hope I wasn't butting in, but I thought I could add to reality in the conversation.
Also, for what it's worth. I also have a 99.5 New Beetle with BARtuning modded 1.8T APR Stage 3". Recently wheel dyno'd 328hp, 353.3 lb/ft of torque. I visted the dubspeedracing forums and pics are in the 'members gallery'/staley (owner of BARtuning in Houston). He posted pics of the engine/blower work as well as 1 or two of the car. The flamed beetle in his pics is my VW that staley built.
I do hip/knee replacements in a wealthy suburb of Chicago.
Personally I drive an 83 Rabbit GTI just because only a POS will stand out around here.
One of the urologists brings a yellow Diablo to work once in a while (He has a Countach too I think). Very nice guy, fixes it himself (says it needs a lot...).
One of the Neurosurgeons sometimes drives an F40 to work. Weird guy IMO, but I have to say that car is unreal looking, basically a race car.
