    Fun @ Pebble Beach, judging by what's on my t-shirt, this film is not to be taken too seriously!

    The YouTube version - I think it needs the high-res setting and increased volume

    The “round the corner “ shot of your Countach just says it all ! It’s an amazing car to look at when static but when in motion, just absolutely mind-boggling!

    Nice job getting in the car , that’s how it’s done!

    IMO the cars are being used more by the current generation of committed owners, and the advent of restoration resources both factory-backed and privateer plus the rebirth of the P7 all mean this trend should continue

    I agree these cars do take on an animalistic presence when in motion, the sight & sound of one being put through it's paces is always a pleasure.

    I've had a little practice getting into and out of some Countachs the past 33 years so hopefully by now I can do it without damaging the bolster & seat in the process!

    That is what these cars are all about...

    Nice.

    Yes, they are just flashers, I had to replace both of mine as well, these are a perishable item being at the low-frontal leading edge of the car, if the car is driven as it was intended for, they will inevitably crack.

    I also had to hunt a NOS Carello rear fog light. Countach fog lights are in the rear. There seems to be a rather inconsistent pattern with the fog light. While downdrafts all have a fog light on/off button, not every car came equipped with a light. Most had one, and very few cars towards the end of production came with with two, as Joe notes previously. Like the front flasher/passing lights, NOS rear fog lights are still available if you hunt diligently.

    You got that dark brown dashboard top you always wanted.

    Beautiful.
