now i think for the most part with world standards and general global competition everything is just left to your opinion.

Viper or GT
Tacoma or 2500
Beetle or Civic
etc...

granted there are problems with everything and some people are pronne to more problems then others but it is all up to personal taste.

any comemts?

Triumphs? Did they actually run often enough to qualify as "real" cars???
None of them ever left me stranded, unlike 3 of the 7 Dodges I have owned.

Funny stuff on the electrical smoke. Glad I didn't hurt yer feelings. Kinda thought you weren't the stuffy English type, anyway. Had a buddy who bought an XKE coupe back about the same time I built my cobra replica. I had mine torn down, rebuilt, and running while he was still scratching his head and arse over the gauges. Sad thing was, the oil pressure gauge really WAS reading low....Guess you know the rest.

I drove a $300 Honda Prelude 1.8l dual carb 5 speed beater for a few months. It had a little pep to it, but after the exhaust broke it was more fart than anything else. Powershifts at 8 grand without the clutch sure were fun though!! Only did that a handful of times though, I got scared I'd break it when I ground it real bad one time, so I proceeded to do those 8 grand powershifts with the clutch, until that got burnt and started slipping.

By that time I found a suitable semi-American replacement beater, an '86 Olds Calaise Supreme 2.5l 4 banger with a 5 speed. That was actually a nice car, aside from the clutch cylidners leaking to the point as where I'd have to bleed it all the time adn cocasionally would have no clutch (drove it the first week without the clutch). I could never find replacement clutch cylinders. I was gonna keep it as a winter beater (despite having to pour gas down teh throttle body when it was below freezing... never had to do that with any of my carbs, grr...) but a buddy on mine got into an accident and was begging for me to give him the car so I gave it to him for $100, he promptly totaled it.

I have and always will drive American. Out of dozens and dozens of cars & trucks, I have only had 2 fereign cars before. A Chevette in the early '80s to learn how to drive a stick and a mid/late '80s Olds 88 I bought from Qtrmiler back in the mid '90s. I don't think I will buy anymore new Fords since the warranties are too short and the throttle by wire thing is terrible with Ford's crappy totally non responsive throttle programming and the electronic transmission gets "confused" all the time not knowing what gear to go in so it hangs in "limbo" for 3-5 seconds when I really need for it to respond and go NOW!

I was into air cooled VWs for a time, I lived in St. Paul Minnesota and worked in Minneapolis for two years in 1980 or so, my daily driver was a 68 Baja bug painted Porsche red. Fun car in MN. snows it would go through a foot of snow with no problem.
