Sorry Im late. Some idiot in a red Lamborghini parked in my spot.

Following on from yesterdays dream pick up, earlier this year Bristol hosted a classic car show in the middle of town where I saw for the first time up close my all time favourite 2 + 2 sports car and by far my favourite Lamborghini.

Powered by a 3929 cc / 239 cui 325 hp 60 degree V12, this gorgeous if monstrous vehicle measures is 186 inches long, 73 inches wide and is 46 inches high, that's just six inches higher than a GT 40 !

1217 Espada models were built from 1968 to 1978, the name refers to the sword used by Spanish bull fighters .

The Espada was designed by Marcello Gandini of Bertone and reminds me of the vehicles from the 1960's sci fi puppet tv series "Thunderbirds".

Late Kudos

To Alsatian Sebastian Loeb on lifting his all time record seventh World Rally Drivers Title !

And to Greg Biffle on winning at Kansas, looks like Jimmy is the target again huh ?

Go Happy ! Go Harvick ! Go #29 !

Thanks for dropping by don't forget to come back now ! Hear ?


  1. Although I concede that Jimmie is still the man to beat out there, I do not believe the championship is sewn up! I think this is and will continue to be the most exciting season in years!
    Pretty car, Art!
    You are quite prolific in this blog forum - kudos to YOU!

  2. Thanks Chief this blog is a great way of killing time while my computer is processing video :-)

    I hope your right and the season is not sewn up for Jimmy, there are still 7 races to go so here is hoping Delana kicks the 'Happy' butt and he steps it up a couple of gears that even Jimmy can't reach :-)

  3. I must admit I'd be thrilled to see Happy at the head table come December.

  4. Nice photos. I love those old sports cars myself. They are elegant in their simplicity.

    This chase is just heating up, it ain't over by a long shot.
