My Warhorse — Daily driven through rain, sleet, and snow and the heat of the summer... for years. It's even doing camping duty, packed to the gills, climbing the PA peaks, loaded down with supplies, people, and firewood.

Pros: Rugged and willing to slide. Inexpensive to run, but very comfortable enough for grand
touring.

Cons: Getting on in years, loosing its performance and styling edge. Starting to get confused
with just another old car.

Solid German Engineering — A masterpiece when new, and now aging nicely into and everyday clasic, has travelled over 300,000 kms not a drop of oil tight steering and gearbox, a very well built car good for another 300,000 with schedualed servicing being the only maintanence we have ever put into her

Pros: supper comfort and reliability

Cons: fuel consumption
