    That is the proverbial Lambo found on the farm, and that dude sitting in it would look more comfortable on horseback :)

    Sweet fancy Moses! That's such a sad sight to see. Let's hope that guy is going to restore it properly or at least sell it to someone who will.

    Sad site to see.

    But honestly, it looks like a fun resto project.

    Economically it makes no sense to restore the car. You may come out on the wrong end of the sheet; even if the car is thrown in for almost nothing.

    Engine rebuild 30K range ? Maybe it is ok. F.I. rebuild ??
    Interior 15K ?
    Electrical ?
    Paint 15K
    Clutch Quite possible ?
    Tranny Who knows ?
    Unknown ?

    Go buy a cherry one for 70/75.

    There are not many cars like this, that you can come out ahead on.
    Unfortunately someone "parked" a nice car that probably had a 10,000 problem and walked.

    Reminds me of those old shots of the Lambo graveyard round the back of the factory.

    I think the 'dude' would look even more at home at a rodeo riding a wild bull one-handed.

    Oh, wait... :)

    Looks like fire damage. At least it could be used for parts.

    trust me that is nothing somewhere in england about 5 years ago the owner of a countash and a bmw let his farther take the bmw somewhere and when the farther came back he was parking the car in front of the countash when he hit the wall panicked shifed in drive and soon landed on top of the countash damging the body work to such a point that only the parts could be used.

    I saw that on TV (maybe RealTV). Indian dude. Sad. He didn't look too mad at his dad on TV at least - just broken hearted.
    ________________

    As for the OP, that would make an awesome restoration "father-son" project. Forget an MG!

    Yet another of the many exotic cars out there that were bought by people thinking they could afford it, and then when something went wrong, they realized they couldn't afford to fix it.

    There are a Bunch of cars out there just like this...

    I wonder if that could be restored - like the white E-type on "A Car is Reborn"

    There used to be a guy in Henderson, Texas with a white lambo like this one, it even had the front spoiler like this one used to. I am not sure if this is it but I have not seen it in a long time. I heard the guy was a real piece of crap!

    I think it would take me 5 years to restore that thing.
    I wonder if it floats?
