    Those who are unfamiliar with Lambo lineage should be introduced to a bit of history.
    Lamborghini produced a limited run of cars with a unique feature that allowed the driver to be able to see behind by looking above to the roofline in order to gain a better view rearward. This rare bodywork was labelled "Periscopa" and is highly sought after by advanced collectors of the marque.
    Here are a few photos to show what historical car we're talking about.

    It was fun bringing her in the Lamborghini. She seemed to have a really good time driving around in Redmond with her head above the windshield. The seat was fully protected so there really wasn't much risk other than drool.

    I'm actually surprised that there haven't been more photos show up on the forums yet.

    We like to share our NW humorous pics here with local friends, whether they be Lambos or Fcars.
    You're probably correct that this post deserves more Ferrari content. I offer this pic of a well known NW FCA member who brings his pups along, Jack and Dan.
    Enjoy and keep smiling!

    That's awesome!!! I love it when I see pics of people that are just enjoying there cars and not treating them like garage queens, and if that means bringing your pup with you even better.

    Crikey, you should see what those terrors did to his new Bentley and he loves them so much...LOL

    Michael you need to control the drool on the GD - Thomas wore it on his sleeve for half an hour at E@RTC aka C'nC before he figured out why we were cringing away from him!
    LOL
