      '86 XJ-S( ~68k miles)

      Believe it or not folks, but this currently has the least issues out of the cars I have. Just had the upper ball joints replaced, but it's great mechanically. Well, the a/c...

      Well, you can definitely make them better. They had a bad fuse box, wiring, finicky carburation as mentioned, were undercooled, and had a very short timing belt life on an interference engine. The...

      You can put 550hp through a factory type 1 case(modified, but still a factory case). How many other engines can make over 10x the original hp on a factory block? It's one of the most easily...

      He was transported to the hospital to receive injuries? Is it too much to add "sustained during the incident"?

      I'm loyal to Valvoline except for cars I don't care about like the corolla. Valvoline white bottle nowadays and I used to use vr1 20w50 in the bugs.

      I used to own an '83 rabbit diesel, 4 door with auto and air. My old stock '74 super beetle was a rocket in comparison.

      I'm a 32y/o pizza delivery driver who dailies a '99 corolla. Actually, I don't belong in this thread. Conformity sucks. I have dropped a lot of pies in the x-type though.

      One I like is that the lancia gamma had a cam belt driven from the power steering pump. It was prone to snap at full lock and I believe that they were interference engines. Cool looking cars though...

      I hate 'em! Mine still sits busted while i deliver pizzas in the x-type. Maybe they're durable, but they're definitely built to a price point. Not what i consider overbuilt at all.
