Lamborghini's
By Robert McLellan
 

When I discovered sports cars in the early 1950s I immersed myself in learning about the best the world had to offer. "Road & Track", "Motor Trend", Fawcett and Trend Books guided me to Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin. But they were just dreams. Reality was an occasional MG, Triumph or Jaguar that actually existed in the far off cities that I visited.

Then, in the 1960s, came Lamborghini. I did not pay much attention to them until 1968 when, on a business trip to London, I passed a showroom with a Miura facing the street. I did a double take and so did my camera. The showroom was closed and, to take a photo through the showroom window was impossible with the sun reflecting my own image. But I remember the car as though it were yesterday.

Since that initial introduction to Lamborghini, I began my "Lambo" literature collecting and it became very complete, including the first 350GT brochure. Like most of my collections, I eventually sold it for a profit after enjoying it for many years. But don't worry... we still find Lamborghini literature and a nice section from Miura to modern is available.
