People take a lot of inspiration from movies. Some start hitting the gym every time they see Rocky while others take up kung fu after watching Bruce Lee.
For Milwaukee’s Ken Imhoff, it was the 1981 film “The Cannonball Run” that was an inspiration to build a car and he spent 17 long years fulfilling that dream.
Ken was smitten the first time he laid eyes on the Lamborghini
He started the project in September 1990 and his first step was to use a 1:16 scale model to build a wooden frame, helping him measure the body panels’ shapes.
It started looking like a Lamborghini even before the wheels and panels were added.
Ken transported all the 33 pieces back and forth, one at a time to paint them at an off-site booth.
After that, Ken was eager to take the car out for a test drive but had to solve the minor issues of leaking coolant and reinstalling spark plugs. He carried on with the tweaking.
Ken’s Lamborghini is not only stunning but is an inspiration for us all to never give up on our dreams and just keep on going no matter how long it takes.
