there is nothing to dislike about them for a reasonable human being. a toyota is sturdy, reliable, handles boringly well, economical and meets the everyday needs, but it ain't an alpha romeo. some feelings are undefinable. a little like faith really. a nissan, a honda, a mazda might well keep us out of rain, start first thing in the morning in all weather, be cheap to run and might even add it's own street cred; but it ain't an alpha!

A 1960 Mark II Jaguar if I'm not mistaken, Puck. I'll admit to having a soft spot for old Jags. The company was never the same after Ford acquired it.

Speaking of old cars, there's always the Volvo P1800 from the 1960s of the Saint fame.

And I also have a nostalgic attachment to the 1967 Hillman Minx, my father's old car.

.

that was indeed an early sixties mark two jaguar. when i was growing up in the late eighties and in the very early nineties, one of the best sunday evening television drama was inspector morse. an old worldy, classics man from one of the oxford colleges, now a chief-inspector solving heinous murders around the academic and upper-middle class spires of oxford. more listened to opera and drove a beautifully restored mark II jaguar. i fell in love with the car instantly!

Hot dang Shaad, after looking at your Tesla and the Aquada, I am reminded of a much coveted engineering marvel of my own fantasies. Just admiring FF Coppola's work of art cruise down Columbus Avenue in San Francisco made me want to do things for money I'm still ashamed to remember.

http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/394657b89c.png

Innovative design

Design studies for the Tucker included many advanced features. For example, the perimeter frame surrounded the vehicle for crash protection. The steering box was behind the front axle to protect the driver in a front-end accident. But numerous Tucker innovations were dropped. Magnesium wheels, disc brakes, swiveling headlights and a direct-drive torque converter transmission were all left on the drawing board due to high costs.

The car's innovative engine continued on the production path for a while longer, however. It was a flat-6 cylinder with hemispherical combustion chambers, fuel injection and overhead valves operated by oil pressure rather than a camshaft. These features would have been auto industry firsts in 1948, but as engine development proceeded, problems appeared. The large 589 in³ (9.7 L) engine provided insufficient power, was very noisy, and was difficult to start.

Tucker had promised 150 hp (112 kW), but his innovative 589 was not working out, so another engine was sourced. The company first tried the Lycoming aircraft engine but it would not fit in the car's rear engine compartment. The Franklin air-cooled helicopter flat-6 did fit, however, so Tucker purchased four samples for $5,000 each. The company's engineers converted it to a water-cooled design. It proved very successful, producing 166 hp (124 kW) and 372 ft-lb of torque. Tucker quickly bought the Franklin company to secure the engine source.

Another failed element of the prototypes was the Cord transmission, designed for front-engine/front wheel drive use. It could not handle the power of the Franklin engine, so a new design was needed. The creator of the Buick Dynaflow transmission was called in, designing a special "Tuckermatic" transmission with only 27 parts, about 90 fewer than normal. The engine and transmission were mounted on a separate subframe which could be lowered and removed in minutes with just six bolts removed — Tucker envisioned loaner engines being quickly swapped in for service.

Unfortunately, the Tuckermatic was not ready for initial production. Most vehicles were fitted with rebuilt transmissions taken from used Cord 810 and 812 series automobiles that Tucker bought and scrapped for the purpose.

Don't get me wrong ... I do enjoy the car. It's awesome that I am driving what I am driving. But it drives like a truck ... slow to accelerate and turning performance is waaay sluggish, especially when compared with beamer. If you are on a road trip, it's the perfect car. But if you are in for some driving fun, it can disappoint you pretty easily.

Once I had the opportunity to drive 1970 Karmann Ghia (VW). It was in tiptop condition (rebuilt engine with only 5000 miles) and had the original dash board. I fell in love with that immaculate silver monster with scratchless body and alloe wheels. The problem was it was my boss's and he was not selling. Then he offered me that he would sell me at $6k. I was a struggling student then barely could payoff my tuitions. But took a test drive. Did a curve bridge at 70 where speed limit was 30. Such was its control even after so many years. He didn't sell that car (more like I couldn't buy that car :) ). May be I need to google him and see what he did with that machine.

Probably not 20 years ago as that particular car came out in '91, but seeing as the cars amazingly popular in KSA (i myself lived there for a while), i wouldnt be surprised. At one time, around '95, literally every third car over there was a Cressida...
