    buy before I'd buy any of today's massproduced crap.... With these you don't a doctors education to change sparkplugs, if even possible with today's cars. When you open the bonnet/hood on these you can actually SEE the engine. Neither are these preset to a certain mileage as when to break down, so that you have to buy or lease a newer and "better" model, and they never let you down, they just keep on rolling in all kinds of weather....

    I don't know how it is in Canada or US etc., but in Sweden cars that's over 30 old are taxfree....seen as "classics".

    One of these

    [​IMG]

    4.5 420bhp V8, 0-60 in 3.9 and 0-100 in 10 seconds. No ABS, no airbags, no traction control. Or if you want to be less sociable
