That, I suspect, may get the award for "Overall Worst Car".  shifty

Not much more, but you don't expect second hand cars to work without a hitch do you?

Nice.

I always wanted a little Spifire (or MG) back in the day.

Try a Jag.

Are you nuts? They're up there with the 106 Rallye, except much, much rarer. I'd kill for one of them!

I'm out, can't get past that, outrageous!

shifty

My one was in the garage more than it was on the road, over a two year period, The Twin Weber Sidedraft DCOE 40s were a pig to tune. The Irmscher High Lift Camshaft was damaged by the cam followers after about a year (IIRC) and when I traded it in, one cylander was starting to lose compression.

For the 3 months that it went well, it was superb, but it fairly drank fuel.
