Remember how it feels when your grandparents handed over something you would find completely useless in this modern age? Like an encyclopedia or pager, maybe? Well, that's not always the case, especially if something is a 1981 Countach. Countach! based on the history of its name. A Reddit user eriegin is in this situation recently after stumbling over a Lamborghini owned by his grandparents. We can only imagine the surprise and joy when he uncovered this classic Italian masterpiece from his grandmother's storage.
1981 Countach was previously owned by his grandfather, who bought a car as part of his exotic car business in the 80's, as mentioned in the post commentary. However, the insurance expense was too high for the grandfather to continue operating so he held the car with many others in the garage for 20+ years. Now this leads to the next question: what are the other cars? We are interested.
Like the red Ferrari 308 set, hang around with Lambo. If you recognize the car, yes, it's the same model that Tom Selleck drove around in the 80 Series, Magnum, P.I. It is one of the famous Ferrarians in the late 70's and early 80's, and we expect to have this car up and running, so a sight to see these days.
To return to Countach, it seems that the car could continue to work with just a little restoration or cleaning. But 20 years of age is not good for an Italian supercar, so we do not count on the opportunity to bring it back to life. In addition, it seems that it is not the applicant's call for now, based again from the comment field. And we quote:
"… But it's also amazing and rare to see something so beautiful (and valuable) in this state. If it were up to me, I'd make it run again and clean up the interior but keep it close as it is. It has character and tells the story of the car that puts it apart from another Countach around. I can honestly understand it more than a perfect painting job. "
We like how this guy thinks.
