    Tell me about it vizkiz. I have a 76 vette that you have to "wear". But thats not the problem with vettes. The odd part is getting used to driving one. You're sitting in the back of the car and it seems like you have 10ft of car in front of you. If you wanna ride a car that's "cramped". Try sitting in a Eclipse or better yet a 3000GT. I have a 94VR4. You're feet are striaght out in front of you and if you're any taller than 6ft you can't fit. Its like sitting in a recliner. And if you have to stop in a hurry, you end up smacking your head over the roof.
    Anyways, to the subject of tactors, the early Lamborghini tractors looked like a 20's or 30's model Massey Ferguson. Knew a guy that had one, it was a POS and wouldn't run worth a crap. As far as I know, its been sitting in his yard since it was new... Ironic compared to what Lamborghini makes now. Although I'm not sure I'd pay $250,000 for one even if i had it. I'd much rather have a Lingenfelter 427 Twin Turbo Vette for about $100,000...

  7. Re: lamoborghini tractors

    i hear there tractors are of really good quality
     
  8. Re: lamoborghini tractors

    exaclty....if his tractors were of poor quality then the car company would never have started

    Mr.Lambo there made it big of selling tractors and farm equipment and thats where he got the start up for developing cars.
