Hey, there may not be anyone willing to buy some of these cars-but who says the owner ever intends to sell them?

Behold the $15,000 Lamborghini Volvo Experiment

Every red-blooded man has the dream of  owning an exotic sports car. Sadly, not all have the bankroll to buy the brands they really want, though some can be quite creative rather than defeated!

They say that where there is a will, there is a way. Still, there is no way this Volvo could be mistaken for a true Lamborghini.

Jay Leno Drives the Highest Mileage Lamborghini

It seems that Jay Leno doesn’t mind a gal with a bit of mileage on her—like the 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT with over 250,000 wrinkles on the odometer.

The vintage GT 2+2 is owned by Jack Riddell and has certainly been appreciated, racking up over 250,000 miles! Based on looks alone, this car could pass as … Continue reading
