Actually (a bit late) . . . if you want something that costs too much,
breaks down a lot, and never uses standard parts, you're looking for a
Jaguar circa 1990 or earlier.  I'm not sure about after that.  They sure
do look nice (Aero Glass), but there are better-looking cars out there
that don't break down all the time (like Aqua and Compiz Fusion), and
some of them even cost less.
