There's a pride that comes with doing your own wrenching, but not all cars make it an easy task. What's the worst car to work on?

Pity the Jalopnik writer forced to take a wrench to the 1990 Nissan 300ZX. The V6 up front is squeezed into the engine bay like John Goodman in an Elise. And like many older Z cars, the car had already been fully appreciated and therefore was prone to constant technical "challenges." It's been rumored that Nissan dealers started hiring contortionists to do any major engine work. You can work on it with hand tools — assuming your tools are bent to impossible angles. It makes us feel better about our Volvo, which can be fixed with a swiss army knife and gum.
