Lamborghini Diablo Jay Leno video

I'm back! After a week of in-laws, great food, and strong drinks in Florida, it took us over a day to fly back to California. We were supposed to fly from Fort Myers to Midway Chicago and then to Oakland. But due to air traffic control issues throughout Florida, we were going to miss our connection in Chicago. It took three Southwest agents to figure out an alternative: Fort Myers to Midway to Las Vegas. Then, the following day, Las Vegas to Oakland. Fortunately, my mom lives in Vegas so we got a bonus family holiday trip out of it.

Driving to the Las Vegas airport early this morning, I spotted a gun metal gray Diablo. I have never been a fan of Diablos. I thought they were too ostentatious and crude. But for the first time, this morning, I came to appreciate the car a lot more.

P.S. If you are ever in the Naples area, I highly recommend the Turtle Club for the view and Lee Be Fish for the fresh seafood.
P.P.S. I read this fascinating article about disgraced Congressman Mark Foley. Since resigning, he has come out of the closet, disclosed that he was abused as a child by a horrible priest, and opened a consignment store with his two Cavalier King Charles spaniels.

Used to go to Naples and Marco Island bi-annually for Xmas in the 90's! Great area, miss it.

@Steven: I was reading the condo directory and there are less and less Dutch names every year. Less Michigan plates too. :(

Well yeah. too pricey these days LOL. We looked at a new house on a golf course on Tamiami trail in '92-94. It was $135,000.
Now days I'm gonna guess $750k!
