This is the story of Ed Bolian and his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

It was a beautiful car, but it had a big problem.

The car got flooded in Santa Monica, thus it sat in mud for a while, getting all messy from the inside out.

Although Ed tried to address the issues, they persisted, prompting him to ultimately opt for its sale.

The car’s story was covered by VINwiki on YouTube.

The car was sold by Ed Bolian

Finally, in 2021, Ed found someone who was interested in buying the car.

He sold his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, but the new owner was not informed about the car’s past.

The new owner was excited about the car.

After all, who wouldn’t be excited for a new Lamborghini?

However, as time went on, he started to realize that something wasn’t right.

After a while, the car was sold again to someone in New Jersey.

The stories of cars can be exciting, just like the guy who spent two decades tracking down his dad’s Diablo Jota. It’s amazing what people would do for their cars.

Buying the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder again

Back to the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Ed missed his car so much that he wanted to buy it back.

And lucky enough, the car was on sale again.

The price was set and the deal was done, and Ed went all the way to New Jersey to pick up the beloved car he once owned.

What surprised him the most was that the car was driven just 89 miles.

But that was because the owner was a content creator and the car was mostly parked in his garage.

Even starting the car was not easy for Ed, but somehow, he and his friend drove it back home.

The car underwent a thorough restoration, and today, Ed proudly calls it his own, even though it’s still not in perfect condition.
