In this world we have many wonderful things. The sun, the moon and yes, we have eBay. eBay is an interesting place to visit because you just never know what’s going pop up there. My favorite section is under automobiles, specifically the “Replica/Kit Cars” section. There are all sorts of interesting creations here. People try, but rarely succeed, to build a better mousetrap than some of the worlds best automakers. My favorites are the guys that try to duplicate the legendary Lamborghini Countach. I found this gem awhile ago on eBay and honestly, it’s just painful to look at. From its over sized BFG’s on the rear to the “oh so tastefully done” 1980’s Pep Boy wheels, this is a car that should be taken out to pasture and shot dead.
What I want to know is: why? If anyone has ever built a kit car please chime in here and educate me. You KNOW it will never be as good as the original, and unless you’re a mechanic, body man, glass guy and wiring specialist the car will most likely come out looking like this poor Lamborghini wannabe. What’s the deal people?
