Lambo in the House!

2005 Lamborghini Gallardo before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

2005 Lamborghini Gallardo was either keyed or maybe scratched by a dog that was as excited as we were to see this gorgeous exotic. We smoothed out the scratch marks and repainted the door.

Acura NSX--The New Benchmark

Acura NSX GT3 spins out at Laguna Seca Raceway.

We got to drive the new Acura NSX this weekend. The 1990 NSX redefined what a supercar could be. The 2017 NSX does it again--the new benchmark. It accelerates like a racing bike, sips fuel like an Accord, eats any piece of pavement with great style, comfort and ease.

We got an extended test drive in the mountain roads near Laguna Seca Raceway during the Pirelli World Challenge as the Acura NSX continued its awesome rookie year in GT3 against Aston Martin, Audi R8s, BMW, Cadillac , Corvette, Dodge Viper, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren, Mercedes Benz, Nissan GT-R and Porsche.

Art St. Cyr, President of Honda Performance Development, and John Watts, Sr. Manager for NSX Performance Team, chatted with us over lunch about the car and successes they've had so far (most laps led of any manufacturer, 5th place finish in its very first race and ranked well in virtually every race.)

Is there a flaw with the NSX? Maybe it is too good. . . it makes even me look like a brilliant and ridiculously fast driver. I want this car!

Thanks to Kobi Eshun for great photography.

Herd of Miuras

Herd of Lamborghini Miuras by Steven Haas
Herd of Lamborghini Miuras by Steven Haas
Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance 2016

Steven Haas sent us this amazing photo from this year's Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida. He says, "It's like a bag of M&Ms spilled into the grass." I doubt the Lamborghini factory could have had this many completed Miuras at one time when production was in full swing (early 1970s.) At roughly $2,000,000 each, this photo contains $12+ Million worth of Lamborghini Miuras plus a little more for rounding error in the form of a blue Aventador in the background.

I had the pleasure of attending the Pebble Beach Concours with Steve a few years ago. This gentleman knows cars and seemingly every living soul in the auto business: executives from major auto manufacturers, the writers and editors of all the car magazines, the people who restore & insure classic cars. He is currently Director, Financial Services at Hagerty Classic Cars so look him up to protect your valuable classic.

Alfa Romeo 4C Visits Shop

Alfa Romeo 4C visits Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C. We're car guys here so our hearts skipped a beat when this Italian beast pulled up. It was brand new and thankfully there wasn't a thing wrong with it. One of our long-time customers just purchased it and knew we'd enjoy being some of the first people in the USA to see one. I love Alfas and am excited that we are finally getting to taste them again in the United States.

More Ferrari Hill Climbing Mischief


Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a Ferrari F430 Spider. As you can see, the hill climb attempt was a bit too ambitious. One more example of why we strongly recommend Ferraris be used only on paved roads and not for rock climbing. We recommend Land Rover, Jeep and Steyr-Daimler-Puch for mud and boulders. (We should also mention that everyone involved in this accident lived to tell about it.)

Please send your abused Ferraris along with generous donations to:

24 Heures du Mans (24 Hours of Le Mans)

Driver, 24 Hours of Lemans 2015

The greatest auto race in the world starts tomorrow, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It's our favorite because since 1923, people have been racing whatever they could bring for a whole day without stopping. There have been cars taken straight off showroom floors: Porsches, Corvettes, Aston Martins, Jaguars, Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Lotuses, Cobras. And then there are the prototypes--the no holds barred version of racing that exists nowhere else. These are the fastest vehicles on the planet with bleeding edge technology that defines where automobiles will be decades in the future. Or not. Some of the ideas are downright weird and fail miserably. Racing doesn't get any better.

Our Continuing Series on Ferrari Offroading

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a Ferrari 355. Long time fans know that we regularly report on Ferraris that are driven off the pavement. In this case, Wrecked Exotics reports that it was not the driver's fault, "A vehicle cut the Ferrari off, swerved into the grass and up a rock ledge and flipped. Both occupant's OK, just banged up."

Ferrari 355 bites the dust, literally

Another Ferrari offroading adventure

Stop Ferrari Abuse!

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day--the latest in our long running series of what NOT to do with a Ferrari. Long envious of Lotus' lock on the supercar/submarine market, a driver in China decided to develop his own, Ferrari-based super-sub. As can be seen in these photos, it is still in need of development.
