HI MY NAME IS RAPHAEL AND I LIKE OLD CARS. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY VALVE CLEARANCES.
I drive an old Volkswagen and it's wonderful. It sounds nice, it's easy to work on, and it only breaks down about once every ten minutes. What's charming about driving it (other than trying to fix a busted starter motor on a streetcorner in Queens) is that everyone you meet has a Volkswagen story. If I happen to take my car to a shop, I am sure to hear some voice chime in "Oh, a Volkswagen! I've got thirty seven of those things out back! My '68 is my daily driver, hasn't run in ninety two years!"
This is why I am happy to own my forty year old crapcan. You hear good stories.
But I know that there are even more ardent car owners than VW people. What group of car owners do you think are the worst when it comes to ranting about their rides?
