I don’t mind it in my automatic transmission BMW as it is pretty seamless but in my manual Jag F-TYPE I detest it. Almost without fail I can beat the car to it pulling off and it either kangaroos or sometimes stalls.
Badge placement on the trunk lid suggests it has been rear ended in its lifetime.
I’ve owned two. One of them was a manual. Does that make me Jalop royalty?
Every time I see a photo of a Lotus Carly I cry a little inside. I owned one for a very very short period of time in the 90s and it is still my favourite car I’ve owned. It was a monster. I loved it so much, sadly so did the criminal community and it was ‘stole to order’.
I have a row your own V6S F-Type, one of the first on the west coast of USA and I love love love it.
I drove a Tatra T613/5 in full “UK” spec. I was intrigued by the concept of a 4 door Porsche 911 and the brave chap who was importing it was a vehicle engineer for Saab and had worked on the 9000 chassis design and tuning, one of my favourite cars at the time.

As a result of this they reduced the amount of under seal they'd apply and by 2002 they had stopped rustproofing DB7s altogether so you can imagine what that… Read more
This is one of those lists that I view as "every episode of Top Gear ranked by awesomeness". They are all awesome, just some more than others. That should end the arguments now surely as there's no such thing as a bad one.
All Caprices are fleet cars, not exclusively cop cars. I've seen city owned non-LEO Caprices on the fleet here in San Francisco.
My dad owned one of these when I was a kid, it was a right hooker and the "Tourist" version (aka wagon). It was an embarrassment to be seen in, we had to put two stroke oil in the fuel and then rock the car from side to side to mix it in.
