Please help with Math Project....

Hi, I am in 7th grade. I have a math assignment, which is to choose my favorite car and estimate the cost of purchasing it, and maintaining and operating it for a year.

I have chosen the 1989 Countach 5000 25th anniversary QV, and I've created a scenario which assumes I can actually drive it daily (I'm 13 now) so I can figure fuel costs. And my mom's car insurance agent can't even quote on Lamborghinis, so we're going to try to get an insurance quote online.

Can anyone possibly tell me what kind of regular maintenance costs to expect estimate for a year on this car? (Assuming good condition when purchased) Or, possibly where I can go for that kind of info?

Thanks very much!

hi pete!
well you have mixed 2 countach models the 25th aniversario with the qv!
well first i think the annual cost will be between $5000 and $7000 to keep it running good!
if you use it every day for 2 years you will have to cahnge the clutch and the price for a 4 valve countach is $5000 $6000
you will have to change tires in a few months so add between $1000 and $2000 more!
if you wreck the suspenssion your pocket will be wrecked too!
the muffler will broke too so its like $1000
and the gas if you use it alot will be more than $500 in a year!
so you should tell your teacher "its pretty expensive"

well if you are speaking of people that speak english since they were born i think the same as you
but remember some of the people in this forum are from other countrys like germany italy brazil and more!
my first language is spanish and i know that i dont write so well but here we are sharing and talking about lamborghinis!
we are not in grammar or spelling lesons!;)

I can certainly understand, if you do not have english as your first language, make grammatical and spelling areas. I was referring to the kind of kids i see writing stuff like: YO I JUS RAN OU TU DA RACES AN BEET SUM GUY IN A RED SIVIC. In other words, my previous response was not directed to people who have a first hand language that has a completely different grammatical structure. :bloated:

better think again buddy.
if youve ever read any of my posts you would know better.
anyhow, I was just trying to give the kid some credit for his age and the level of intelligence he seems to have already, but if you cant comprehend what my reply was originally about, then so be it. maybe your the riceboy who cant understand normal language.

think about that.
