Disagree. A '38 Cord is far better than a '65 Toyota.
And, a 2019 Lexus is better than Any Pinto. Safer, too.
In the 6 years I've had it, my Chevy now needs only an oil seal to be roadworthy. If I could get transaxle out to get fix it properly, it would still be running.
In the 3 years I've had the Toyota; its needed new carburetor (hard to get and expensive), leak from front mains seal (required sleeve to repair properly, so it would and not just leak, again), had bad fuel lines, now leaks 3 qts of oil in 30 miles. Carb now clogged, Again. Getting to the leak requires removing motor mounts and lifting engine 2 inches.
