For all those time you get that question you can knock out of the park. What color was George Washington’s white horse? When does Oktoberfest start? What is the best lightweight practical 2 seater roadster? You almost cant miss.

The Lamborghini 400GT Is The Only Car Jack’s Ever Needed

“The production line was really weird back then, I mean, they had wine for lunch… Hopefully you got a car that was built with everybody, before lunch, you know?” quips Jack Riddell, owner of this 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT.

Thing is, Jack’s car may have been built on a day when the all the stars in the universe aligned to produce the best-built 400 GT: his car has nearly 300,000 miles on the clock, easily one of the world’s highest totals for a Lamborghini.

He bought the car in 1972, after simultaneously saving up and talking its owner down to $6,250. It’s been a rewarding experience ever since.

The car’s rarity at less than 250 made and Jack’s technical skills allowed him to maintain and improve the car through the years, and he’s become a trusted resource among fellow Lamborghini aficionados.

One interesting update to Jack’s car is his custom-built ignition system. He modified a Jaguar distributor and added an MSD unit, eliminating the need for constant tune-ups.

“Which is good, because I like to drive it,” he says. “You can cruise at 140 mph all day if you could do it legally, but you can’t, unfortunately…”
