I remember my, "Cars from Hell", being a Lamborghini Countach and a vintage, lowered, De Tomaso Mangusta. Not that they weren't that difficult to load, them both being lowered from stock made blocking, padding and ramping extra challenging. No real issues on either end and two really happy customers. God ... I love my work.     R.

Njss ... sorry, those were cars I transported back in the 1990s and 35mm pics are long gone. I remember I was more scared at the Lamborghini's $355,000 price tag than I was at loading the car. Especially true with Countach's, Diablo's and Mura's, I remember free-spooling cable and pulling the V-bridle under the cars to back-hook their rear suspensions. On some cars, there was so much under-splash plastic that made hooking-up difficult, and, it's really low profile called for lots of ramping. Because I didn't have loop straps at the time, I took 2-inch sections of fire hose and slid them over the J-hooks so to pad the hooks and not leave shank-marks in the suspension.  The Mangusta is similar to the Pantera with a big block Ford. Nowadays, a vintage, pristine Countach can fetch $800,000 and Hagerty's values the Mangusta in the $300,000 range. Here are two pictures taken from the Internet of a Countach and Mangusta.     R.
