This 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 has been in Bill Nielsen`s family since 1972. A mysterious relative of his bought the car in 1972. About 25 years ago, his relative pulled the car into the garage to work on the brakes. However, he kind of got stalled mid-project, it`s uncertain what the delay was. Ordering parts was more difficult back then, not having the internet. Nevertheless, he was in correspondence with Lamborghini, asking questions like buying parts from here and there. Despite all of this, he never really got the car back on the road. When first found after 28 years, it was up on blocks.
