Ron I lived in the UK for 2 years.

The Brits build things that are designed to constantly break down so they will have something to do after work and on weekends. They only had 4 TV channels when I lived there and 2 of those were BBC1 and BBC2. Thus the Jags always overheating and bad clutches, motorcycles that always needed a bit of tinkering.

It was a plot mandated by the British Monarchy that all British built vehicles were designed to break down so the populace would be too busy fixing things to rise up and overthrow the monarchy.

After all you can only drink so many pints and eat so much Pub Grub and be bored to death by watching too much snooker or cricket.

My favorite car I ever owned was a Morris Minor (a four wheeled moped in disguise)
