Lamborghini / Orange County Auto Show 2012

Thank you, in advance, to those of you who take a moment to leave a comment and/or fave my photo. I appreciate it tremendously.

The first time the OC Auto Show threw open its doors, the Beatles dominated radio, hamburgers cost 19 cents and the Ford Mustang had just come on the market.

After serving as a mechanic in the Italian Royal Air Force during World War II, Ferruccio Lamborghini went into business building tractors based on surplus WWII military hardware.

By the mid-1950s, Lamborghini’s tractor company, Lamborghini Trattori S.p.A., had become one of the largest agricultural equipment manufacturers in the country.

When Lamborghini discovered that the clutch on his Ferrari was broken, and actually was the same clutch that he used on his tractors, Lamborghini went to Ferrari and asked for a better replacement. Ferrari responded, saying that he was just a tractor maker, and could not know anything about sports cars. Lamborghini decided to pursue an automobile manufacturing venture with the goal of bringing to life his vision of a perfect grand tourer. The Lamborghini name is now known around the world.
