I was a proud owner of both a Triumph and an MG. 

Still nothing stirs the heart quite like an Italian machine or a girl who will put up with one.

I had many finicky British and Italian cars in my youth. Much of my own character was developed from owning these cars - you get a lot of time for introspection sitting on the side of the road, or taking a long walk home.

Thankfully for my sanity and my wallet, I've avoided owning those sorts of makes. Doesn't mean I haven't lusted after the odd Jaguar, Lotus, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia, etc.

This '71 142S that came up on BaT (again) is identical to the one I drove in high school. Judging from the glowing comments, I got the lemon. As usual.

Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says.

There was once a "Folkloric Zoology" thread, but it got shut down because there was so much turbulence and wrangling in there.  Can't have anything nice.

Dang. That thing is done up well. The '59 wagons have long been one of my favorite styles, but it all makes me nostalgic for the time when no one wanted a station wagon and you could pick one up for a couple hundred bucks (if the demolition derby didn't get to it first).
