What was the first Lamborghini you purchased?
1991 Lamborghini Diablo (Black exterior/Black interior)
Why did you decide to purchase a Lamborghini instead of another exotic?
Although my LP640 is not my only exotic, it is easily my favorite. As long as I am into exotic cars, I will always own one or more Lamborghini because of its unique styling and performance.
What draws you to the Lamborghini brand?
What draws me to the brand is first and foremost its image. Dark, fast, mysterious and the way it seems to piss off other exotic owners. The performance is another factor. There are many fast cars but not many you can actually drive fast! After owning an AWD Lamborghini, I am convinced there is no other way to enjoy a sports car like this!
Describe your most memorable experience with your Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini Management Brunch in 2009 was the most memorable when we did a run with Lamborghini Management and then had a brunch with them after for a Q & A. It is not often that you get the opportunity to hang out with top brass from Lamborghini where you can enjoy your car, and have some fun on the open road.
Why is Lamborghini Club America important to you?
The Italian Car OEMs have never made any sort of effort to create a community of owners in North America. In recent years, the Lamborghini Club has really started to take this seriously, and has made major head way. This is exciting for all of us Lamborghini owners.
What will your next Lamborghini purchase be?
The Murcielago successor (if I like the looks).
