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.

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.

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

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).
