I've always posted about it. TFS(With the new update) is way better than JIRA.
JIRA was a maze. It's a kind of software that makes you rant in the beginning, and then over a period complain in low voice, and then comfortably live with it, with all the UX nonsense.
Mine was a Renault 14. Weird offset rear wheels, engine canted back at 78 degrees, practically needed to remove the engine to change the spark plugs, automatic gearbox exploded/disintegrated after a year.
The only good news was I bought it at a heavy discount price because it was a dealer demo car even though it had all the bells and whistles being the top model version. Also, the gearbox was replaced under guarantee. It still put me off automatics for a long time.
1974 Audi 100LS - I bought it used in 1980. Dirt cheap and still too expensive.
The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.

Yeah, but you use those poofy little wine gallons over there. Other bloke is from Britain where they are using the manly beer gallon so probably close to the same mileage.

A 1967 Dodge Dart with 6 cylinder motor. It was 1983? We were kids and the 67 chevelle we had as our first car got rear ended and with unibody construction was done for. The dart had a weird issue that when the dry Santa Anna winds of So. Cal would blow, that thing would not start. So yeah on the most "beautiful" dry smog free days I was late for work - try to explain this to your boss, that on nice days your car wouldn't start.
One dark night we were coming back from visiting my parents in seal beach on the 22 fwy at speed when the bolt that held the fan to the crankshaft left. The spinning fan jumped into the radiator with alternator belt attached and I don't have to tell you what that sounded like to go from cruising peace to all hell breaking loose in an instant. After weeks went by, we eventually got the POS back on the road and traded in for a Toyota Corolla hatchback that was a very good car.
The 4 x 4 trailblazer we just got rid of comes in a close second but it was a 2003 and we drove it for all it was worth. Except for 3 transfer case explosions, countless ignition coil replacements and the interior plastic breaking left and right it was a pretty decent vehicle.

I have a similar story. My '72 Ford Maverick had a 170 cu. in. inline 6-cylinder engine. My wife was driving when one of the fan blades decided it had had enough, and struck out on its own. On its way it gouged a trough through the radiator and then committed unlawful congress with the battery. Meanwhile, the water pump disintegrated due to the unbalanced fan, and the harmonic balancer became unbalanced. Essentially everything forward of the engine block was destroyed.
