Like having the fusebox drop down and trp your foot onthe clutch.
Like having the transmission give you your choice of first AND any other gear in the box.
Like finding crib notes in your Official Factory Service Manual "They haven't done it like this sine 1968".
Like having to center the steering wheel by adjusting the tie rods.
Like having to remove the power window motor and exposed cable drive(!) to replace the door check.
AND FOR REAL EXCITEMENT.....
Having the plastic fan blow apart (resouding BANG!)and take out the fan shroud and all the belts on your engine -- not to mention leaving some nasty dents in your hood.
The thrill of turning the key the first time after having rebuilt your in-sump fuel pump, and not being consumed by the explosion and fire.
