    Dear Valentino, I have tested my Countach and it can go more than 180!

    This Downdraft has seen terminal velocity a number of times somewhere in the USA

    LOL... this is the first thing I thought of when I saw your post Joe about 999 being the emergency phone number in the UK. I still laughed myself silly at this......

    Interesting humor!

    My reference to the 999 being the emergency phone number in the UK was because personalized (referred to as 'cherished' in the UK) plates with the 999 emergency number are kind of a thing in the UK and are sought after by owners of Supercars and sports cars who pay up for the number plus their initials etc

    I regret to say that in a quiet moment tonight I made it through the entire 1 minute and 25 seconds of this video, and I should point out that 999 still is the primary emergency number in the UK today, I say this because the video you posted is 10 years old!

    Which begs the question, Mike, where do you find this stuff, or better still, how much time do you spend on YouTube? :D

    Anyway, as I mentioned (intended to be in passing), 999 is a thing amongst sports car owners in the UK as you can see below, don't ask me why!

    Hahahaha... I have a friend from England and we were discussing how we used to enjoy watching Monty Python when we were kids. He mentioned this show called “the IT crowd” and said it was absolutely hysterical. My wife and I watched the entire series a couple of years ago. That episode always stuck with me because of the absurdity of an emergency number being that long.

    The show room basically centers around two guys who are in the “IT department” of a large company and their female boss that gets appointed to supervise them. She knows absolutely nothing about computers. I always found it so funny because the majority of my time at Boeing was spent in the IT departments and I saw so many parallels. The entire series is on Netflix streaming, you should watch a couple episodes, you’ll be hooked.

    I wish I had the time!

    Same reason anyone would pay for anything that's exclusive, unique, or a one-off.

    In the UK, cherished number plates is in fact a serious marketplace:

    In the Middle East as well:

    Leo, it's a Downdraft owned by a dealer in Berlin, he painted it this way @ 10 years ago, occasionally brings it out to events
