Then: Arlington resident Tom LeGro with Lamborghini, 12, at the Washington Auto Show, 1989.

Now: D.C. resident Tom LeGro with Lamborghini, 32, at the Washington Auto Show, 2009.

Notice: The way his hand gently caresses the velvet rope in both pics.

Disclaimer: Tom LeGro now loves photography more than Lamborghinis. But as a 12-year-old he loved Lamborghinis “very, very much.”
