Right, so many competantly-designed cars sound the sam^^^^ fail in similar manners. I note none of the cars mentioned appear to be ABX tested.

... oh never mind. Dragging this back on-topic vaguely, might I just suggest that for specific purposes DIY can allow for ...more fun?

I'm afraid I can't tell you on a forum that considers the word "crap" to be obscene.

Now, if one expanded upon this, and said, "Pretty young girls like sports cars driven by old geezers" - that's where things get interesting ... , ...

I hope that guy has a mechanic on staff, those Jaguars are in the shop more than out. I had a later model XJ6 and it was a PITA. Can't remember how many times I had to fix my brother-in-laws Jensen Healey with the Ford Cosworth engine. Nice little sports car but a pain in the rear to keep the exhaust from cracking!

I thought tan interior on a Jag was like Henry Fords black on a T.
