It's one of one, listed on BAT as unobtanium - I don't think where my date will sit is on page one of my challenges with this one.

 
I'm not greedy, a series 1 6 cylinder would be fine with me, although I would appreciate a synchromesh transmission. My double-clutching is really rusty.

I was a proud owner of both a Triumph and an MG. 

Still nothing stirs the heart quite like an Italian machine or a girl who will put up with one.

I had many finicky British and Italian cars in my youth. Much of my own character was developed from owning these cars - you get a lot of time for introspection sitting on the side of the road, or taking a long walk home.

Thankfully for my sanity and my wallet, I've avoided owning those sorts of makes. Doesn't mean I haven't lusted after the odd Jaguar, Lotus, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia, etc.

I believe that as a breed, Volvo aficionados learn to consider relatively frequent mechanical issues (both minor and major) as a lovable characteristic of the products of Göteborg. The people making the comments probably had the same issues you had, they just have a proper attitude about them.

This '71 142S that came up on BaT (again) is identical to the one I drove in high school. Judging from the glowing comments, I got the lemon. As usual.
