Lamborghini LM002 Rocking the AACA

Lamborghini LM002 American

Wil de Groot with ‘Rambo Lambo’ Lamborghini LM002 American

Taking a throwback look to 2016 when our client’s Lamborghini LM002 American was a featured display for a season at the American Automobile Club Association Museum (AACA)  in Hershey, PA. Here is Wil de Groot on display with this highly desirable ‘American’ model, of which only 60 were built. (Note: Wil was not a permanent part of the exhibit).

This 26 year old rare Italian SUV was treated to some extensive autobody refinishing at Exoticars USA to bring it back to its full glory. The story of these late 80s raging bulls is fascinating so please do go to Wikipedia or a Lamborghini fan site and read more.

If you are into automotive history and your are visiting the area, we heartily recommend a trip to the museum. Spanning three floors, the museum facilities are top notch and there are always interesting vehicles on exhibit.

The AACA is a member of the Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program.

We helped save the day at the 2016 Annual FCA Ferrari Fall Festival when a LaFerrari broke down en route to the show in the center of town.

Oil changes

Ferrari engine low compressionChanging the oil in your Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati or Aston Martin is probably the most important part of routine maintenance. After removing old engine oil it is replaced with new, fresh oil and one or more new oil filters.

Oil absorbs heat and lubricates the moving parts of your car’s engine to reduce friction (which causes premature wear and potentially overheating). With time engine oil breaks down and becomes worn out. Old engine oil is no longer effective at lubricating engine parts and absorbing heat.

For high performance vehicles an oil change every year or every 3,000 – 5,000 miles (whichever comes first) is recommended. Change the oil more frequently if you drive at high speeds, have an older engine or live in an area that is hot, cold, or dusty.

ferrari-oil-change-2ferrari-oil-change-1The photos shown here of sludge in the oil pan and valve train are from a Ferrari engine that has apparently not had oil changes at the recommended intervals. We might expect to see sludge in a ‘daily driver’ older car of low value, never a Ferrari!
