Every classic luxury car has a history, but none is as colorful as the Lamborghini. One of the most famous cars in the world started as a result of a tractor company dispute. Ferruccio Lamborghini was a member of the Air Force during World War II, where he specialized in mechanics and fixing engines. Once removed from service, he opened a car and motorcycle repair shop in Italy where he bought surplus military machines and made them into tractors. This business was very popular, and he expanded into building commercial air conditioning units and oil-burning heaters.
