Saving Your Internal Organs From Harm (Or Sale)
Once again, the sinister Mr. Scroggs proves that his Internet Ninjitsu is second to none, tracking down a vehicle that has caused virtually every person who has seen it to contemplate the prices they would be able to obtain for any surplus — or not-so-surplus — internal organs.
Let’s face it 1960’s-era Lamborghinis and Ferraris are among the most beautiful cars you can find. Hell, I’d personally say that almost anything from the 1960’s was a damn fine looking car, and I’m having a very hard time thinking of an exception to that rule. The Italians, however, were the cream of the crop, with cars so achingly beautiful they defy analogy. This 1968 Lamborghini Islero is no exception.
Much like Mr. Scroggs’ beautiful find on Monday that set my heart — and other body parts — a-twitter, this particularly high-priced eBay auction appears, by every detail we can find, to be that sort of choice automobile that you’d normally spend years searching for. And there are still a few hours left on the auction! The seller has scads of documentation, and the colour combination is just stunning. Granted, I have a soft-spot for that sort of brown leather interior, but even with that detail aside, I would sell a family member for this vehicle. Pity the bidding has already exceeded a price I could even dream of for any of them.
Sadly, then, knowing that it is so far out of my possible financial reach that I may as well start bidding on Switzerland, I am relegated to sitting here viewing the photos. For the next 18 hours or so.
