Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my BRZ. But, not in the same way. My STi fit me, went like stink, handled like no other four door sedan and like a Timex, "Took a licking and kept on ticking!"
I hear ya. I loved my Z but in reality, the chassis was a rusty mess, and the original cabin vents on the hatch poisoned me with exhaust gasses unless I ran the blower full bore.

Is that a feature or a bug?

The 240Z was sold in four unofficial series. Series 1 240Zs include the earliest cars built in late 1969 through mid-1971, identifiable by two ventilation grilles below the rear hatch and "240Z" badging on the C-pillar. These early cars are typically the most desirable to collectors, although the vents, removed from Series 2 cars, would allow exhaust fumes to enter the cabin when parked or at low speeds. Production of the 240Z ended in September 1973.
My serial number was 9xxx. I don't remember exactly. It was a bug that eventually became a feature. That's partly why I get a kick out of first-year design/production warts.

Iíve owned one car for 10 years now, time to be a little irrational.
This year I will try to get something "different". Rotary powered car (Rx8 or FC) or clasic muscle car (v8). Would be great waking up early and think what I will drive today

Put the car on the dyno and learned that I should build a return style fuel system.
