“I have a Lamborghini and I've got a big wall.”
Richard Moriarty has a 1974 Lamborghini installed on his wall and we can see how it's done (see

Far be it from me to tell people
make up for their shortcomings
how to spend their incredible amounts of money.
The 58-year-old organized exotic parties in the 1980s, and more recently he planted a vineyard on his 3.5-acre estate and began bottling wines under such labels as “Wretched Excess” and “The Idle Rich.”
I wouldn't want the wall car and I wouldn't want the indoor shooting range (at all). But the 28 ft. interior waterfall would be very cool.
Pictures! Pictures! Pictures!
Vertex..are you asking to see pictures? If so, you might want to check the link at the end of the FPP.
>.> Righto. =P
that's a rather ugly car. is it a countach? way to angular for my taste.
I've got a massive ego, and I have lots of money to massage it with. I've got lots of money, and I can't think of a single useful thing to do with it except celebrate conspicuous consumption in a way that is a slap in the face to all the people on this planet who don't have enought to eat.
"Nice moose head, but you should see what
got. Shot that little bugger on the Ensenada freeway - roaring along at 160mph and *BANG*!! Never knew what hit 'im." (drinks wine - spits) "Dammit! This wine is neither idle or rich enough! But it damn sure is wretched! Have my vintner shot! Mount him on the wall!"
You'd think that someone this rich would have heard of this new thing they have called "art".
I think it's kind of cool - and a ratty older lambo sans engine probably isn't nearly as expensive as you think (and this particular one, if it's really a '74 (given the roof detail* it might be) has been modified with lots of tacky add-ons from later models - the huge wing and the fender flares - making it worth even less). It's really none of my business what people do with their money - and how do we know he hasn't given a ton to charity as well? *given the terrible rearward vision, the early 70's prototype had a prismatic mirror that was mounted on the headliner in front of the depression visible in some of the photos and would reflect down to give the driver a view out the back. It was deemed too expensive for production, but the roof designed for it lingered into the earlier production models.
stick on bullet holes on the back of it
I stuck an old pressure washer on my wall. Chicks totally dig it. Heh heh.
And I have a collection of used carburetors and catalytic converters on mine! It goes well with my wife's hubcap collection.
Is it just me, or do all of those photos look photoshopped? verrrrry suspicious.... I don't doubt that some ego-impaired person would want to do that, I'm just suspicious.
