Gallardo V10's have timing CHAINS... I've yet to see a timing chain with a replacement interval less than 100k.

Oh yeah, a modern marvel. OF COURSE a $200,000 car should die a horrible death and not have warranty coverage.

As cool as the story starts to sound, some parts don't add up, and the guy is definitely lacking some sense. I guess that for the purpose of what he did though half the point was just to keep going, even if it meant living on loans and not having money for routine maintenance.

I'm tempted to do the same, but on a nice motorcycle instead, with a tent in a sidecase.

I would imagine not following the maintenance program would void the three year, unlimited mile warranty.

No one ever gets laid because they drive a Hot Wheels car.

Some truth about this story:

Richard Jordan has taken Matt Hardigree on a ride with a ton of lies here. He never sold all of his possessions or spent his "life savings" to set out on the open road or to buy the Lamborghini (OR any of the other luxury cars and bikes he's been afforded over the years).

Where to start with this pile of madness? He sold his metal fabrication business?! WHAT business? What was the name of this alleged business and to whom did he sell it and when? For that matter, WHAT JOB? And he took to the highway, living hotel to hotel after his fiancee left him???! The timeline in this is whack. He bought her a Corvette AFTER he bought the Lamborghini (and also after he bought the Hummer H1 and the Audi A4 AND the Ford F-650 AND the Cadillac and whatever else that he purchased within that five year block), and they were together for a long while afterward. What about the time he was pulled over in Indiana? Or the embarrassing time(s) he TOLD people he was Moby? The versions portrayed above of those incidents are a convoluted headache of half-truths. Witnesses were there, remember, Richard? This article leads readers to believe Mr. Jordan is some kind of nomadic Mad-Max-meets-Two-Lane-Black-Top messiah when he's really just a delusional kid who hails from extreme privilege. I'm sure his good family is floored by this hacked up mess of words.

Hell, my elderly parents have put more out-of-state miles on their car than Richard has put on this Lambo. The most driving he's done has been at 18o mph from Starbucks to Starbucks across the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. This is SUCH an unbelievable crock. People can't possibly be reading this story, looking at the handful of pictures Richard took while on a few road trips along with the images of his new warehouse, and thinking all of this has no holes in it! Come on.

Richard, you owe Matt Hardigree a huge apology for wasting his time and for leading readers to believe you're some kind of reformed victim of love who left everything behind for some romantic, American dream. Did you think an article of this popular magnitude wouldn't be read by people who know you in real life?

Meh. I still enjoy the fantasy of it. Reminds me of Bob Hoover's cross-country adventure in Grendel the Minibus from Hell about 15 years ago.

Yeah, me too.

I'd just do it on a bike. Although you can't really sleep in a bike.

Hell, I may start my trek next week on the VFR. Too bad I already burned up my vacation hours.
