Hey! I'm seriously thinking about buying a mid 80's Countach. I just love the looks of them.

It's all good. Here's an 82 that sold for around $60K with 27K on the clock. Seems like a good deal for such a cool looking car.

Yeah, those power lifter dudes are something else. Talk about a short life-span.

Where was the smoke from the tires burning? I kept looking for that. Did I miss something?

That reminds me of the Top Gear where they reviewed the CL65. They had a game of tug-of-war... some rugby team I think it was VS the CL65. The CL65 couldn't keep enough traction to win and the rugby team slowly pulled the car back... it was pretty funny to watch.
