      Outside of the Miura, the Gallardo is the best looking Lambo. It's restrained but still exotic.

      A fellow vortexer gave me a lift in a 997 Carrera GTS last year and then he let me have a short drive. I'm sure it didn't mean much to him, but it put a spring into my step for the next six months

      Congrats to you for sharing the Lamborghini with total strangers - both the TCL and the kids

      I love that you shared the experience with those kids. That is a classy move. Very cool.
      Congrats on the car. It is great to see someone aspire to something and actually achieve their goal. Like freedomperiod's Porsche build (and monster Diablo build), and the dude with the old Jag XKsomething, I find this this inspirational. Nice to see there are some decent real car guys still out there.

      The reason you're not getting sh*t is that you actually did it, rather than internet "I'm buying a Lambo". To clarify, I never posted in that thread but your TCL cred went up 100000x. Congrats and enjoy in good health.

      Congrats on picking up such a fine car and kudos for being so cool with the kids, we were all young once and would have loved that opportunity to sit in one. Hope the drool marks wipe off easily

      This is the true mark of an auto enthusiast. Who knows how much you may have inspired one of those guys. Enjoy the ride !!!!!!!!!

      Was sort of annoyed by the previous thread about buying this car, but seeing that you're a cool enough guy to give kids a ride/seat in your new Lambo?



      Very cool-- and just what a car enthusiast should do!

      You sound like a pretty cool dude to let those kids sit in your car and to let the one get a ride. I love the Gallardo, the only thing I'd do differently is pick a louder, more ostentatious color. The dark grey is very subtle and classy though.

      Congrats on the new ride.

      Yeah. Claiming god did anything to help just takes away from the hard work and perseverance he endured to be able to buy the car.

      Cars will come and go. What you did for those kids is what will last.

      I hope you enjoy your car!

      You're clearly a good sport! Love the Gallardo - enjoy it!
