Re: First real topic in this forum. Yeah! (DoktaJoch)

A white Countach was the first car I ever turned the key of. Nice rumble.
When I was a kid, I was going out with mates and one day we saw it in a scrapyard. There was no one there, and the window slit was down. They key was in.
Afterwards, we just sprinted and got the hell out. I have photos, but they're pretty bad. I'll only scan them if someone requests. Also, while we were at it, we knicked the tyre valves for our bikes. If only I knew how to open that damn door... Does anyone know where and how to open a Lambo door?

Re: how to open the doors...
There is a small square button-style release inside the NACA duct on each door. There is even a key lock tumbler in them. You simply reach in, push up, and up swings the door.

Great cars from back in the day, but they do look very dated, don't they?


I still think the Countach is one of the most attractive designs ever.
The Miura and the new Koenigsegg are also on that very short list.

That yellow Countach is the ugliest thing i've ever seen.
Same with the rear of the red one at the bottom of the post.
I followed one of these things in amazement at how unbelievably gigantic this car is.

Gigantic? They're wide, but otherwise they're quite small in all directions. 42" tall, and no longer than your average midsize sedan.
They do look imposing nonetheless however.
