      They're still all over the place. Very durable and reliable cars except for the front suspension and typical garbage ford p/s pump of the era.

      Used to daily a '92 grand marquis. They take well...

      First car that was actually mine was a sahara beige '74 super beetle with the autostick. It was my grandfathers and it was my daily after taking it out of an 11 year storage. Extremely original. I...

      Well it is a massive supercar. It's certainly not going to be like a Miata. However, I've heard that it is a very stable car at speed which is one trait you're going to want a supercar to have for...

      You're silly mister. That engine is fantastic with even greater potential, just look at what twr did with it for the xj220s. 680hp and less lag using SMALLER turbos. Is that still pedestrian?

      Depending on perspective either my current '08 accent or my old '97 cirrus(yes!). I guess you could put it that the cirrus was the most durable, the accent most reliable.

      I agree on the Vulcan, i've seen them top 300k before. The 3L duratec though? A decent performer but reliability leaves much to be desired in my non-mechanic experience. Also, transaxles are of...

      That itb'd vr sounds surprisingly bad to me to be honest. Crap exhaust methinks.

      Actually, anyone who thinks that their opinion carries universal merit is fooling hirself. :facepalm:

      Both are beautiful to me. Both are stellar performers. I'd take the xj220 but i'd be afraid...

      Those seats are in decent condition; they're notoriously prone to cracking and ripping easily. That's a start. 38k? I hope the timing belt was done. The recommended interval is 24k and snapped...

      Years; same with milanos. Outside of car shows, the only alfas I see on the road actually driving here are spiders and 164s maybe twice a year each.

      What's wrong with going to a car show in this situation? Probably not going to hurt the matter much and one has to stay positive in negative situations.

      That's your car in the pic? Cross out...

      Yes, i've noticed that a relative's '00 sable has a rather terrible turning radius. Didn't know it was a ford wide thing, if you can excuse the lame pun.

      Accent:
      Battery charger, flashlight, assorted sockets, wrenches, and ratchets and stuff.

      XJ-S:
      Nothing!
      Why?
      CHAOS IS MY LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Value is relative of course. Find a good well kept example and maintain it properly, and a bmw/Mercedes/vw/jaguar 12cyl motorcar CAN(but not necessarily will) be affordable. I'll admit that my xj-s...

      I'm not ashamed to admit that I've kissed my xj-s. Only one thus far, but v12 jaguars will always coil about my heart.
