  • Hello, Mark Ferguson with Invest Four More. I am standing in my garage because I'm about

  • to go on a journey for my birthday. But before I go, I wanted to show you the point behind

  • my trip. This is my 91 Mustang 50 convertible. It’s got a supercharger on it, full exhaust,

  • white leather interior, white topthat was my daily driver for about 10 years while I

  • was in college and after that. Many of those years without a heater in Colorado winter,

  • so that was always fun in a convertible. This is my 1986 Porsche 928, 5 liter, all aluminum

  • engine. Most people don't realize Porsche had a V8 in the eighties, but it sounds pretty

  • mean with an exhaust on it. This is my 1999 Lamborghini Diablo VT. This is the reason

  • I'm taking my trip.

  • Not this particular car, but I bought this from Cats Exotics, which is in Seattle. I'm

  • in Colorado. This spring, it was a dream of mine for a long time to have a Lamborghini.

  • And I bought this car sight unseen, without driving itin fact, I’d never driven in

  • a Diablo at all, I just sat in one one time to make sure I fit. But Cats Exotics now has

  • a 1989 Lamborghini Countach in their inventory. And Roy Cats is nice enough to let me take

  • a trip there and go check out Countach, take a ride in

  • It. And a pretty rare event because they didn’t make many of those cars, and it’s for sale

  • for 369,000 right now.

  • Here's a look at the inside the Diablo. 23,000 miles now, I bought it with 21,000 miles.

  • I definitely drive it. I will drive this three, four times a week sometimes, if the weather’s

  • nice. It’s a little dark in here, so I’m not sure you can see very well. The V12, 5.7

  • liter, 530 horsepower. So I am taking a trip to Seattle to go see the Countach for one

  • day, then I'm flying back. Will see a few other cars while I'm there, but hopefully

  • I’ll have some exciting more videos to show you, and we will see what happens.

  • Okay, I think we're on the right road now. It’s a little hard to find, but were

  • on the way to the dealership. Hopefully we'll see it here soon. My first glimpse of where

  • I bought my Diablo from, even though I never saw it before I bough it. Ah, I believe that

  • is it, right here in on the left. And there’s even a driveway to get into it, and they're

  • unloading cars up there, too. This is a good sign. We're a little early, I don't think

  • they're open yet, but it looks like there's still people here. And this is it. So well

  • walk around and wait to see if anybody's here.

  • All right. I made it to Cats. We found the dealership, and this is the Countach, 1989,

  • white with the cream interior. You can see it's got the big fender flares, the crazy

  • gills coming out of it, the giant spoiler, the huge tires. I sat in it. I kind of fit,

  • if I scrunch way down. If I try and sit normal, my head does smash the ceiling pretty good.

  • A beautiful car. This dealership is just amazing. Cats Exotics, again, if anybody wants an exotic

  • car, I highly recommend them. Here's the interior, very good shape. Here, I’ll show you some

  • of the other cars theyve got. That’s a silver Diablo GT, one of the rarest Diablos

  • youll ever see. They actually sold it, 488,000. McLaren’s, Gyarados, well take

  • a look at some other Diablos back here. This is a special SCR race Diablo. That's another

  • GT, the SE30 purpleawesome place. The blue Murcielago. Al right. I'll be sure to take more videos, and well drive the Countach

  • a little later.

  • [engine noise]

  • Here a Lamborghini SE30, 800 miles. Here’s what a Diablo transmission and engine looks

  • like taken out. This car’s in for major service. See how massive the engine bay is?

  • All right, still at Cats Exotics in another one of the showrooms, these are T-birds. Awesome

  • lifts, which I want to get for my garage. Here’s an original Camaro Z28 rally sport,

  • an old Porsche 911, Murcielago SV, and this—I’m not even sure what this is, I believe it’s

  • a Jaguarbut it's absolutely gorgeous.

  • Here’s the Countach. Getting ready for a little drive in the Seattle rain.

  • [engine noise] Beautiful sound. [engine noise]

  • >> A lot of them are pretty beat, this dash is in really good shape, you know.

  • >> It’s perfect.

  • >> So overall it’s a really good car. See, back when this car was out and popular, there

  • wasn’t, you know, a ton of street lights and freeways, you know. It was just regular

  • two lane roads, soft sides, and you could just keep driving.

  • >> Right, yeah.

  • >> You didn’t have to keep stopping and going, stopping and going.

  • >> So they built them. There’s guys that rebuild them. Because when they made them,

  • the companies that produced the parts would sign a contract with Lamborghini for like

  • 25 years not to reproduce it. Then after 25 years goes away, they sell the patent to another

  • company that makes them.

  • >> Okay.

  • >> It’s not like there’s 5,000 a year, you know.

  • >> Right.

  • >> There’s not even that many cars made. So it’s not cost effective for one company

  • to keep doing it. Yeah, the Countach’s not an overly fast car.

  • >> Road Runner Super Bee, the

  • Chevelle SS convertible, the Z28, and there’s a little Bentley tucked in over here.

  • All right, here’s one last look at the Countach. Been here since about 10 this morning to almost

  • four, with a little break for lunch. I did not get to drive the Countach, but I did ride

  • in it, and it was a great drive. One last look at the dealership. I think my favorite

  • other car here is this Ford GT, beautiful car. McLaren’s, Gyarados, so great day.

  • Definitely worth

  • the trip.

  • [engine noise]

  • All right. Were going to go on a short test drive in the Diablo, after driving the

  • Countach. The fist interesting thing on the Diablo is I can raise up the front about 2

  • inches, 3 inches to go over bumps so I don’t scrap the front bumper spoiler in this extremely

  • low car. And you can raise it back down or up. If you hit about 35 it lowers itself automatically.

  • Compared to the Countach, I have a ton more room in the Diablo. I’m about 6’1” and

  • in the Countach, I had to be crunched down with my butt way forward in the seat to avoid

  • not smashing my head against the roof. I fit, but I wasn’t exactly comfortable. In the

  • Diablo, I mean, if I stretch myself all the way up as tall as I can, I can hit the roof.

  • But there’s way more room.

  • And this car is ten years newer, it’s a ’99 and that Countach was an ’89. Really

  • a world of difference in the drivability. The Countach is a cool car, I mean, youre

  • buying it for looks, for, you know, great sounds, rarity, possibly an investment, but

  • the Diablo is much more of a driving car. Much easier clutch to use, more power. I actually

  • think my Diablo sounds a lot better than the Countach. It’s just got a deep growl to

  • it that I’ve really never heard before in a car. And the Diablo is faster, too. The

  • Diablo was the first car to hit 200 miles an hourthe first production car stock.

  • Definitely a fun car to drive, and for a third of the price of a Countach.

  • It’s really hard for me to justify buying a car, not that I could right now, because

  • I can’t financially buy a Countach, but if I was at that point, it just seems insane

  • to pay 500,000, 400,000 dollars for a car like that. It’s a fun car, it’s a cool

  • car, but youre really buying the rarity and the investment value of it. And I really

  • like to drive my cars and have fun with my cars, and I would almost be scared to take

  • it out or drive it anywhere, unless I just had a billion dollars and didn’t care.

  • So for the time being, I love my Diablo. It’s a fun car. You definitely can’t be too shy

  • when you have it, you get lots of looks. Every time I stop at the gas station, about five

  • people come over to talk to me about it. It’s really a lot of fun. And it’s such a beautiful

  • car. I don’t get too many, you know, dirty looks or bad reactions from it like some people

  • might think you would. Really, it’s 95 percent just good reactions, people smiling, people

  • asking questions, having fun with the car.

  • So I like this car. I love it. It’s more comfortable. It’s roomier; my knees aren’t

  • jammed up against the steering wheel, and my head isn’t smashed against the roof.

  • So for right now, I think well stick with the Diablo. But seeing the Countach, seeing

  • those other cars definitely was an awesome experience. You know, put some goals in my

  • head for the future, some future motivation for sure. I really liked the Ford GT—I can’t

  • get that out of my head, it’s just such an awesome car. But well see what happens.

  • Hey, Mark Ferguson, back from my trip. As you can see, I didn’t actually get to drive

  • the Countach, but I did get to ride in it. It was a fantastic time, lots of rain in Seattle.

  • The other car dealers that were at the dealership were incredibly surprised that Roy even took

  • me out in the rain in the Countach. And I do not blame them, because I do not drive

  • my Diablo in the rain, and it’s all wheel drive. The Countach is rear-wheel drive, huge

  • tires, 350-plus thousand dollar car, and he was nice enough to take me in a spin in the

  • rain, and he wasn’t very shy about showing me what it could do, either. So, great trip.

  • Well worth it. I was there for Saturday, basically, saw so many cool cars.

  • My takeaways from the trip: The Countach is awesome. I really liked it. I think I like

  • the styles before the anniversary edition, the early eighties, mid eighties Countachs

  • the best. But those are 500,000 right now, or more. It’s crazy what prices have done.

  • You know, five years ago you could get a Countach for 100,000 dollars, no problem. Now you can

  • barely get them for under 400,000. And the really desirable ones are 500,000, the seventies

  • Countachs are over a million now. It’s insane what they've done. And I have to ask myselfyou

  • know, I’m not in a position where I would buy one now, but if I couldis that car

  • worth that much money? And it's pretty awesome, I love it looks, but I don't know if I would

  • want to spend that much money on a car.

  • And while I was at Roy's, I saw a Ford GT, a 2005 gorgeous midnight blue car that caught

  • my eye. And I think if I had a choicethat one’s 294,000, super comfortable super cool,

  • amazing engine, supercharged V8—I think I might buy a car like that instead of the

  • Countach. So, I’m not going to buy either one, you know, for a while. Well see. But

  • for right now, I’m happy with the Diablo, I love it. It’s been awesome having that

  • car.

  • And for those of you wondering how I was able to get the Diablo, I've been a realtor since

  • 2001. I run my own team now with eight people on it. I fix and flip houses. I flipped twelve

  • homes last year. I own 11 rental properties, which pretty much covered all the expenses

  • for the Diablo. And I talked a lot about that on my blog, InvestFourMore.com. So if you're

  • interested in learning about real estate, learning about how I've been successful, and

  • made enough money to afford a Diablo, check out the blog. Lots of information on my properties,

  • lots of information on the car, as well. Again, it’s InvestFourMore.com. Thanks for watching.

  • Have a great night.
