      The first 200 I saw while sitting in traffic--a low end model with the dealer tags in the plate frames--was producing significant amounts of oil smoke.

      Yes, sample size of one car and all that,...

      It drives me nuts to see all of the 'that car would be worth a lot more stock' and 'I wonder how much it'd cost to put it back to stock' anytime a pre-1989 911 pops up on BaT these days. The recent...

      I hate that your 25+ y/o black car, driven through the Winter, has more paint gloss than my 3 year old car driven in the same climate. :facepalm:

      From what I understand, the newer XC70 cars are quite reliable as euro cars go--harking back to the 94-98 850/V70's (pre-networked electronics & DBW).

      The 3.2 is supposed to be fairly reliable...

      Meanwhile, BaT surfaced this AW11 powered by a Celica GT-S drivetrain. I'm sorely tempted.

      Abuse and enthusiastic driving--with proper maintenance--are very different things.

      If you owned an AW11, you should know they relish being revved to 7500rpm (and frankly need to be run hard to...

      My mom had an '01 Outback that started failing in the same manner yours is--oil all over the exhaust manifold due to external HG leak. She had her car fixed about 3 years ago at an indie Subaru...

      Untrue.

      I bought my '94 Miata R-Package for $3500 4+ years ago.

      Apart from being a bit ratty cosmetically, it needed nothing. The PO had been meticulous about maintenance and had done a bunch...

      I think there are quite a few more AW11's around than SW20 Turbos, in particular. AW11 Supercharged cars would perhaps be a better comparison.

      I don't necessarily think the earlier cars were built...

      I have an NA Miata. I've repeatedly thought about an MR2 Turbo. Reasons:

      -Always loved the styling.
      -Great motor.
      -Nice interior.
      -Moddable.

      The problem: I can't find one that is in decent...

      Hell, it still would be.

      And with 120hp in that chassis? You'd best be comfortable. Because you'll be spending a lot of time in it. :D

      You're quite right. I don't know anything about British cars and am spouting ignorant nonsense.

      There's just no way I'd recommend a Spitfire 1500.

      The 1500 motor is crap. BL's decision to continue with the 3 main bearing design when they increased capacity leads to premature engine failure....

      Interesting. I'd never noticed until seeing the blue car how the side lines so strongly echo those of its 70's predecessor.

      I can't think of why I don't own one of these.

      As far as I can tell, if you change the timing belt and keep it serviced, they won't ever die.

      For $3-4000, is there a better commuting cruiser?
