Talking Laws of an X19...

THE OWNERSHIP LAWS OF THE X19

1) When they run well and are properly sorted out, they are a lot of fun and give a lot of pleasure

2) It goes against every known law of physics, engineering, plausibility and morality to sort them out to make them run well.

3) Morality is thrown into that equation because if you do properly sort them out and make them run well, you obviously have sold your soul to the devil

4) If you keep on top of it, rust is not an issue

5) By "Keep on top of it" we mean going over the car 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and watching it turn to oxide before your very eyes. It's going to happen and, as long as you accept that it will turn into a pile of red failure, it is not a problem.

6)The electrics in the car are reliable to fault.

7) It's your fault that you rely on them.

8) It's your fault if you stick the key in the ignition and turn it on.

9) Lucas looks like a god.

10) That smell? Its gasoline.

11) Under no circumstances should you light a cigarette with the cigarette lighter. See items 1 through 10. Especially 10. And 1. And 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

12) Chicks dig them!

13) Those chicks don't live near you.

14) They are respected in the enthusiast community

15) The enthusiast community consists of a bunch of shut-in, navel gazing, masochists who only see the light of day at the show and shine and then only long enough to try to convince you how great the car is. They can easily be identified by how they mark their territory: an ever increasing stain of Castrol 20W50 or 90W

16) It leaks. Get over it.

17) Right after you identify the leak, make sure it didn't just disable you.

18) Too late.

19) See 10 above.

20) It has charm.

21) It is not, under any circumstances, magically delicious.

22) Best bet: don't accept one if it is given to you.

19) I can't count.

30) Lots of this can be applied to vintage Ferrari's and Lambo's as well... so your in good company.
