Although it is yesterday's technology, one of the things about my 1980 Avanti that I really like is that it is reliable transportation unlike my much newer Jaguar which I would gladly sell if my wife did not love it. Of course she just drives it and rides in it(the Raguar). I have to deal with its constant issues

Seems typical of British sports cars. In the 70s, my daily driver was a 58 MGA. Had to work on it all weekend to get to work the rest of the week. My roommate had a GT6. Similar deal. Later, My 1st wife bought a 74 Spitfire. When we got rid of it 15 years later, it only had 40,000 miles on it. Every time it broke, I let it sit until I got around to fixing it. All were fun to drive when running however.
