Default Handmade Lamborghini Countach

Got this from another site, figured you guys were interested. It was made entirely from scratch, and it was dwelling in his basement ever since he started, until now.

I love this story... seems like an urban myth, but is a legendary true story. I know the guy personally. If you have an early rls Intercooler w/ the aluminum bracket, it was built by Ken!

Ken is a craftsman... an aluminum worker and TIG welder as well as a great machinist. Years ago, he decided to build a Lamborghini Countach from scratch... almost every part was hand fabricated by Ken.

He built the car in his basement, knowing that one day he would need to extract the car from his house. It was, until last week, a ship in a bottle.

Ken hired a contractor to knock out one of the basement walls, excavate a whole bunch of dirt and form a ramp in order to remove the car form its residential womb.

Here are the very first photos of the car in progress and the newly freed car.
