    I think Matts car will be at the Petersens museums new super car ,history display. For the next 8 months or so. Sounds interesting, if in LA, i will for sure check it out. Did bring my daughter and her siblings there a few years back,(we have family and friends in SanClemente) its an amazing museum, at the time their special was 30-40 s couch build such as Bugatti Talbot Duesenberg and their likes. Good time. Also once in San Clemente/ Laguna. Their private beach club really made made hitting the beach and parking combo really pleasant.

    Flashback - Legendary Chrysler Corporation Chairman Lee Iacocca shows off the American version of the Countach QV, behind him is Chrysler Motors Chairman Gerald Greenwald.

    Nuova Automobili Lamborghini SpA's production of a fully USA EPA & DOT compliant Countach commencing in 1986 made the Italian car company attractive to Chrysler, who made an offer to purchase it the following year. Image by Robert Kozloff, April 27 1987, Highland, Michigan.

    Interesting. I’m guessing that not many FI cars came without wings, given their popularity, particularly in the US.

    Correct, wings were mounted outside the factory as they were an unofficial item, and the USA Fuelies were fitted with what has become known over the years as the small wing, this is the unit with more upright supports and a smaller wing plane.
