If you want to use any material found on this site, you should first obtain the original copyright owner's permission, this copyright owner is mentioned in the caption of the photo, if no name is present it does not mean the photo isn't copyright protected, every single photo or piece of information is still copyright protected by US Federal and International law.

Unfortunately we can only give a license to publish photo's that we hold the copyrights to, we can't speak for the other photographer's whose photos are presented on the LamboCARS.com site, you should contact them directly for their personal permission. We would however like to know where the photos end up, so please contact us before using any of the photos we own.
The website you want to use the photo on should be a non-commercial website, using any of the material found on the LamboCARS.com website for commercial purposes is NOT allowed.
