Cruising Along in a 300,000 Mile LamborghiniDecember 13th, 2015
Jack Riddell is not the kind of guy who would buy a collectible toy and keep it in a box. When he bought his dream 1967 Lamborghini 400GT way back in 1972, Riddell had no intention of garaging his new plaything. Indeed, he’s put upwards of 270,000 miles on the exquisite red grand tourer, and contrary to what you might imagine from an Italian engineered sports car, the Lamborghini has proved up to the task.
Granted, the ex-Navy chief warrant officer has the mechanical skills to modify the engine to make it more amenable to daily driver status, boosting the horsepower to roughly 360. Considering all the time in the saddle he’s gotten with his 2+2 Lamborghini, Riddell has more than gotten his 6,250 dollars worth.
