Only the rare crackpot or eccentric likes driving old cars. That means when you see one on the street it’s likely there out of necessity.
The car is a Jaguar. When it was new it cost a lot of money. The reliability of this vehicle has been exhausted but the cost to maintain it still lingers.
There’s a terrible irony that in order to “successfully” own an inexpensive car, you need to have either a wealth of repair knowledge or another car in the driveway ready to go.
It’s sad to see something that was once so great reduced to something a notch above scrap value.
Even worse is this situation in which someone has dug a hole so deep there’s really no way out. I don’t know how much each of these tickets costs, but seven of them are going to add up.
I count my blessings when I encounter scenes like this one.
