What's the reason? I thought it was because they say ale tastes better when it's not ice cold. What's the link to cars?

Because they use Lucas refrigerators! Lucas, the Prince of Darkness.

All stereotypes about Jaguar vehicles are true, at least pre-Ford ownership. Mainly flaky (Lucas) electrics and oil leaks.

But there weren't many prettier vehicles in the late 60s through the mid 80s, in my view. Jag gave M-B a run for their money in the luxury saloon segment withe XJ-12 Vanden Plas. Connolly leather, burl walnut and lamb's wood carpets, all good!

p.s. tongue in cheek with with good natured apologies to the British members of the site.

So what are you if you own a torque wrench and still fail to torque your wheel nuts properly?

Thanks for explaining. I certainly know about Lucas' propensity to not function as designed. I just didn't know they made refrigerators. So, bloke could break down on the motorway in a beautiful English car, get towed home, and walk in the door, open the fridge and find warm food and beer.

Man, I hope so. Quite well. Just did 5 hours of yard work and didn't vapor lock, so that's good.

E90 rear brakes are on the schedule for tomorrow. Car is already on the lift.

I just started torquing wheel bolts this year, and I have counted myself a car guy for at least 30 years. So my response is - car guy, provided you know how to use the torque wrench, and actually use it.

And then get pissed off when you come back and find a POS car parked right next to you, you're a car guy.

If you exercise the luggage roller cover and rear window roller sun blinds regularly as preventive maintenance, you might be a car guy.
