    Quest for the Least Reliable Vehicle for MontuckyFried

    Inspired by this:
    https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/top...ink_source=app

    And MontuckyFried's interest in this V12 BMW, broken down somewhere in Texas:

    https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/ct...444584210.html

    What's the next least reliable vehicle imaginable for Montucky to select and push, pull, or drag home? Must be inexpensive to purchase, preferably manual transmission, European.

    DeLorean and Yugo are probably too old.

    Recommendations for possibly reliable beaters will fall on deaf ears. Nothing from Toyota, Honda, or even the easy to fix domestic things like Jeep XJ Cherokees. The only XJs to be considered here shall be from Jaaaaag.

    Anyone know of an Aston Martin Lagonda that ran when parked?

    VW Phaeton or RollsRoyce Silver Spirit should make the list. Bugatti is probably out of the price range but truly atrocious repair bills

    $112k (list) to $3k in 16 years is impressive

    Find actual for sale listings and link them here for Montucky to make questionable decisions.

    The obvious answer here is something with an Italian pedigree, preferably a Maserati Biturbo.

    2000 Audi A8 that overheats after 20 minutes. IF you can keep your driving to 19 minute increments you'll be fine.

    It's not a manual but it's a euro, cheap and needs work so it's a TGR trifecta.

    I think he needs to track down Charlie Sheen's armored Maybach:

    Hahaha. NOW we're talking. Keep 'em coming.

    My weakness for dirt cheap Euro cars is like Boomer's weakness for thicc women. And there is certainly a steep price to be paid for either.

    Honestly all that really goes wrong at that stage is when the brake lines rust through you kinda have to do the entire thing and it’s a nightmare. And fuel tanks and pumps.

    But otherwise it’s just looks.

    Some really good suggestions coming up already here. I like the branded title offerings too - what could go wrong?

    Protip for anyone who is trying to help Montucky. Insert "mechanic's special" into your search terms.
