There speaks a True Believer! You know it is noisy, dirty, slow, leaks
oil on your driveway, annoys the neighbours (and all other traffic), and
costs more than you can afford. It scrapes your knuckles, ruins clothing,
and frightens the cat. The parents of your kid's friends won't let them
ride in it for fear of their lives, the local red-necks are mounting a
petition to stop you driving about in it because of the pollution, and
your insurance company have never heard of it but reckon it must be the
same risk as a hand-built formula 3 racing car!

Yup - no contest!
