    Is that Murciƃ[​IMG]lago painted matte black?!? If so, that is probably the raddest modern car I've ever seen.

    Lambo sells them this way now.

    The cars are driven regularly, including in Westchester and Montauk.

    I like the over-restoration.

    So many old cars are a let-down when compared with new technology. If this is the way a guy can own the "perfect" version, then all credit to him for having the balls to do it.

    No kidding. Compared to the 1938 Bugatti, that Lamborghini might as well be a Yugo.

    The alfa's and the bugattis are just pure classic roadsters. I fucking love those things.

    I do like the looks of the old Bugatti, but I would certainly enjoy driving that Lambo.

    Here's an appetizer from the MFA exhibit in '05.

    I am really curious to see if I still have the other photos from this exhibit still on my computer at home, as I also have some shots from the Peterson museum in November. Dueling XKSSs anyone? If only the Peterson had bought the other Atlantic back in '10.
