There are times in one's life where you really have a craving for something; an "itch", as it's often referred to as...
Itches are good, they are the perfect stimuli for ambition and perseverance. But often, those itches don't last long.
Or do they?
As detailed in my other Journal, I have been the proud owner of a beautiful Ferrari F355B for the last 6 years. I really loved that car, and could not see myself replacing it.
Thursday 24th September was the culmination of nearly a year of childlike anticipation, as I picked up my Lamborghini LP670-4 SV. I cannot thank the guys at Automobili Lamborghini and Lamborghini London enough.
Jim the Bentley was pretty certain the temperature issue was over with the fan repair. He'd tried his best to cook the car and it was having none of it, the temperature steadfastly refusing to go beyond 90 degrees however long the car was left running.
Don't tell anyone but I actually did some work myself on the Lamborghini in May 2006. With tools. Something that has always irked me a bit about Espadas is how they can often look wonky in photos if you catch the wrong angle.
The first date logged in my diary for the Espada to emerge from hibernation was the Goodwood Road Racing Club's Sunday Breakfast for Italian Cars in April.
It is the coolest key ring to throw on the bar. I don't think any other car badge has quite the same ability to make an impression as that of Lamborghini.
I stood and stared at the Espada for a while. Just stared. "Bloody hell", I thought "I have waited thirty years for this: I OWN A LAMBORGHINI ESPADA!"
One amusing moment was winning the â€œBest Non American Carâ€ trophy at the annual UK Corvette Nationals held at Huntingdon racecourse in Cambridgeshire.
I am a girl and I own a Lamborghini Diablo VT. It does not belong to my boyfriend, my Dad or my brother. It is mine.
