Morning gents, Joe is correct on on comments about my car, the original color was red but it had been white pinstriped on every edge of the car, it was hideous and painted on not tape. The color now is from a 90s model dodge I'd seen, its black cherry pearl, the interior was snow white and every time I got into the car there was a new mark on the leather, (just call me Pigpen) so I changed it to black. The picture Raymond posted was taken in I think in 2004 at Italiano in Monterey in 2004, I'm the guy at the back of the car, the other person is my long time friend Mike Trusty who helped me do the EFI conversion back in 1993. There is a great story about Mike driving my car from NW Arkansas to his shop in Little Rock which at the time we didn't have a freeway from NWA to Hwy 40 and you had to take Hwy 59 which goes through many small towns (less than 1000 people) it was about 1.5 hour drive and of course the countach stuck out like a spaceship going down the road. All the cops monitor the same channel and one cop said "that car looks like its going 180 mph just sitting still", some other cops in the town down the road mistook the comment and though he was doing 180 mph so they set up a road block and stopped Mike as he was cruising down the road at the speed limit. They took him out of the car and had him ready to handcuff when they made the call that they had the speeding Lamborghini driver in custody, Mike all the time was saying "It wasn't me!" then the officer from the town prior cleared up the mistake by say "I said it LOOKS like its going 180 mph not going!" They of course let him go and had their own private car show.
The motor that is in the car is the original motor just was updated to EFI and distribuless ignition. I've put almost 20k miles on the car since the conversion and have never removed or replaced the spark plugs, it runs unbelievable for a 2 valve car but since the value has gone up my plans are to take it back to original as I kept all the parts and this is just bolt on items I replaced. I sold the Bob Wallace twin turbo motor and it went back to the car it came from, took me a few days to crate it all up but the motor is with the car in Sweden. This brought me great joy knowing that piece of history is together again. I do have a anivercery model transmission that is for sale, these transmissions are beefier than the early model transmissions and have a larger input shaft, it can be used in an early model car you just have to change the clutch disk to accept the larger shaft. Also a spare rear end for countach although I've never heard of one failing, and a triple disk clutch set up for an early car with lighten flywheel. This came from Bob also, there is an experimental Lamborghini plenum with intake runners drilled for EFI not CIS (several blank runner too) for a 2 valve car which I selling also. Don't know of many people who would do what I have done to the car now they are becoming more valuable but its still a piece of history.
