We've all heard it. The VW owner who had the 1.8 turbo from the early 2000's that never consumed a drop of oil, never ate a coil, and just ran and ran and ran.

The unstoppable '88 Hyundai Excel.

The Iron Duke '84 Fiero that still in my garage all original with 175K miles.

So lets hear it. What "outlier" car have you owned that has a history of being a reliability nightmare, that just ran, and ran, and ran, and ran.
