A friend just sent me a video posted on Jay Leno's site that some might enjoy.

He has probably the highest mileage Lambo around with around 250,000 on it!

Jay is the only guy I know that can afford the maintenence on a 250,000 mile Lambo !!

It's not Jay's car. The owner apparently does his own maintenance, and has made some maintainability improvements over the years.

I was fortunate enough to drive a Lambo Islero many years ago (not my car), which is mechanically just about identical to the 400 GT. It was just lovely in every way. I couldn't imagine owning one and not driving it regularly -- that's the thing's only reason for being.

Yeah... noticed that too... but I watched it last night during commercial breaks on Top Gear... so I just muted the sound during the intro.

When I was in high school, one of my neighbors had one of those parked out in his driveway. It was there, parked outside for several years. At first, I didn't even know what it was. Finally, I walked up the driveway one day and was surprised to find that it was a Lamborghini. I'd stare at it every time I went by, but I just couldn't fall in love with it.

It's been gone for several years now. Not sure if he moved it inside, sold it or if he even still lives there. I still look, though.

The 400GTS is the one I own - the 'S' just indicates more modern interior and another bunch of BHP over the earlier 400s (in my case 350 BHP @ 7900 rpm) that the last 100 cars had. I agree, great cars to drive, and I must get mine out this summer and enjoy it!
