Sometimes They Just Break Down

Today happens to be Jerry Seinfeld’s Birthday and I came across a picture of him with his very expensive and rare Porsche on the back of a tow truck.

It was heartening to see that it doesn’t matter how wealthy you are or how expensive your car is, it can still end up causing you heartache and a trip to the mechanic next to a sweaty and tired tow truck driver.

As a classic car owner myself for the last twenty years I don’t think I can count the number of times I have been in this position. It’s frustrating and embarrassing and expensive but it’s a reality of classic car ownership.

Sure it doesn’t happen all the time and mostly you will enjoy marvellous driving majority of the time. But if you think you will have the same amount of reliability as a modern car then you are delusional.

It happens to the best of us and it’s just one of those things.  I like to think of it as the price of cool.

Enjoy the ride but make sure your dues are paid up with the auto club!
