If I remember, 240Z’s would rust through the floor boards before they got sold
I played golf with a dentist who owned a Jaguar E Type. The local BMC dealer was useless in servicing the car so he bought an expensive set of tools to do most of it it himself. Wearing gloves of course.
He neatly summed up owning a Jag as similar to being married to Elizabeth Taylor; some great moment of passion but the rest of the time a temperamental companion with very high upkeep costs!!!
… along with many periods of serious illness…
