    Countach replica owner tracks down the original builder

    The owner of this gorgeous Countach replica, Keith Cline did his research and was able to track down the builder. He learned that it was constructed from scratch by a young Gordon Tronson in New Zealand back in the 70s. Gordon later moved to the Vancouver area where he raced speed boats for many years. Gordon now lives in Las Vegas where he owns a telephone company, numerous exotic and muscle cars, dirt racers, a jet powered speed boat, a wallabee (kangaroo), a party house with original frescos, and numerous other bikes and exotic go-fast items. Keith was very pleased to be able to find Gordon and sent him these pics.













    Gordon is pictured here in a recent photo with his authentic red Diablo and one of the working girls at Sheri's Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada.

    Hey Ice Magician - let's see you post a pic of your girl friend or wife - if you dare!

    If you happen to be in the Vegas area next month, you might want to meet Gordon and come to his annual "Why Not?" Party on Friday, June 15th after dinner at STEAK Restaurant. See the Ferrari Club calendar for more details...

    I do not think that countach was built in the 70s. It would have been hard to build a 25th Anniversary countach in the 70s.

    Quite true. Must have been the 80s.

    Um... probably the 90's. The Anniversario came out in '89 (pretty sure). Be rough making a replica of a car that wasn't built yet.
