I'll add another Achilles, which I hope you never discover. The AC evap coil is prone to leak, requires removal of the dash to repair and is nigh on impossible to diagnose even with tracer dye. I labored through several KC summers without AC from the ennui created by that issue.

Upper rear shock mounts are also flimsy.

Sam the window washer gazed on the lovely Buick and dreamed of the day when he'd have enough saved up from his deuce and a quarter per hour wage to make one his own.

Every car/truck has them. My beef with our exisiting lineup...

Legacy GT - Brake calipers extremely seize prone. In my experience, they are a wear item that may not last as long as pads.
Dodge Ram (last year of the 360) - the perfect vehicle, if 11 mpg is your thing.
1954 Ford - Rearward visibility. Car appears to end at the backlight.
Alfa Spider - For a car that is substantially larger than a Miata, the mechanical packaging is super tight. Basic tasks like replacing the solenoid or tie rod end become obscenity laden half day long affairs.
Mk III VW - Over reliance on brittle plastics
Dodge Caravan - In tank fuel pumps are unreliable and tough to reach.

It's definitely Garafalo. Sexy in a way that's more Junior Zagato than Giulia. Nevertheless, this is the first new car that's made me want to buy a new car in years.

They stood idly by and watched it happen ... just like car buyers.

Is the second gear synchro worn out yet?

It's cool. I'd rock it proudly. It will never be widely desirable.

One morning during the "Awesomeness Manifesto" days Jalopnik rolled out a whole bunch of changes to the commenting system. I was already on the fence about the place and decided to pack it in. It so happened that I was the first to comment under the new rules. Knowing how anal Wert was about the "First Post!" nonsense, I threw out a cheeky "Last Post!". One change I was unaware of was reversing the chronology of comments - newest comments on top. Thus, my smartass comment turned out to be absolutely true.
