Looking back on a old story in the 90,s when going to the Goodwood FOS in my black countach with a so called mate as a passenger we got stuck in a long line of cars behind a slow bus just outside of Petworth when a super quick Mclaren F1 overtook the long queue doing well over a ton well I just pulled behind him flat out when the passenger screamed I don't want to die !!!gripping the seat with his backside cheeks after about a few minutes of red mist he reminded me the other guy had brakes!!!!!!point taken game-up.
My x wife asked if she could come with me for the ride as she was bored,I said yes providing she didn't whinge,whine or scream as i was on a time span and had to back.We where in a 500SL not a supercar so quick but not fast.To my amazement she seemed calm and didn't say a word there and back apart from she needed the loo.It wasn't til a couple days later i was hoovering the SL out and took the passenger side heavy Mercedes overmat out and noticed a clean hole right the way through it, about the size of a woman' heel !
Apparently one of Rod Stewart's Miuras had similar indentations in the roof lining. smile
Ha Ha very funny, they must have been short girls. Didn't have that problem with the SL ,you just remove the detachable hard top and the sky's the limit and the length of the legs.

I once saw Rod Stewart in his Diablo. There was a bus dawdling ahead, fairly narrow road. He got impatient, up on the kerb doing god knows what to the underside of the car, past the bus and off into the sunset! It was a lowish kerb but still....

Ye,but it's Rod Stewart he can do that and get away with it ,he's such a cheeky chappy ,I assume it was a modern car at the time so with his money it can be replaced or repaired ,Imagine a SVJ doing that today in Kensington , the local resldence will have the driver lynched or worse.He's a legend and the epitome of a rock star .Rod Stewart,blondes and Lamborghini's just go together. Does anyone know if he has owned a white Espada in the early days,I was outside a pub in the Kings Road back in the day and there was a guy who looked like Rod,hair,clothes ,similar height with this Espada ,half on the pavement and road,to this day i don't know if it was or wasn't hlm ,A lot of fans dressed up to like their heroes in those days especially in London.

In relation to the numberplate INKO - my father owns this plate. He was the chap who owned his own printing business.

He purchased this from Del/Roger back in the 70s when he purchased his first Lamborghini Espada in red. It was the demonstrator number plate used in the UK at the time. He then purchased a white Lamborghini Espada that quickly turned into a lovely yellow one... before he moved on to a number of different vehicles including a Lotus Esprit Turbo.

He still has it and it now sits on a Peugeot (bit of a come down)... he's very much loved looking at all these pictures and it has brought back some great memories for him.

I will try and look out some of the old photos that we have and upload them.
