Jaguar F Type. A car I considered.

Back in 2016 my wife decided it was time to bring a sporty 2-seater into our lives. She test drove Audi, Lotus, BMW M3, F Type, and then on a whim she drove a Corvette C7. The Vette stole her heart. She said that the choice was made because the Vette had

Jaguar F Type. A car I considered.

Remember, the engine won't "blow up." But you'll get a small burnt smell coming from the engine immediately after the high g-force maneuver. And then you'll realize that you have to add a quart of oil every 2000 km of driving when you never had to do that

Jaguar F Type. A car I considered.

"Real" dry sump vs. "integrated" like on a Cayman or BMW M3 is not really a big deal IMO. The main difference is true dry sump creates vacuum in the crankcase, reducing windage loss. Even though the AM engine is dry sumped, the max power is lackluster com

Jaguar F Type. A car I considered.

Overcoming watch burnout

Well said! It's a marathon, not a sprint! I like cars too, but I'm choked by the speed limit and bankrupted by the gas prices. I don't know where you live Fastwong, but I live in California. The price for Premium gasoline here is $7.199 per US Gallon (3.7

Found this in an old box

It is an aftermarket shift knob for my first BMW 3 Series 15 years ago. When I sold the car , I put the OEM shift knob back on and decided to keep this one. A pleasant surprise to find while going through old stuff, and it unlocked many fun memories
