Succinctly put

Why old cars suck

To put it in bullet format:

  • Terrible ignition systems
  • Maddeningly temperamental fuel-delivery systems
  • Early emission control systems
  • Four-wheel drum breaks
  • Short-lived suspension components
  • Ineffective climate-control systems
  • Safety
  • Corrosion



  • Having owned, in the now fairly distant past, an MGA and a TR6, I am amazed at how much I liked those things.

    I also had a 1980 911 for about 13 years. It compared badly with a family sedan (BMW 325i E36) 12 years junior to it.
