worst car I ever owned...
without doubt the Rover P5 V8.
I had wanted one for years and once my beloved 240Z had been killed, I spent 4 months combing the length and breth of Britain (really ) trying to find the right one. I brought a stunning looking '71 saloon in burgundy with a cream roof, literally one careful owner from new with bills and history going back to day one.
On the drive home, within 5 miles I HATED IT .
it didn't corner, it wallowed around, it didn't feel right at all.
I just wasn't prepered for the old car driving sensation, esp after my 240Z. and worse still everywhere I took it, everyone stared at it cos it looked so glorious.
I kept it for 3 months, drove it under 250 miles and sold it as soon as I could bear it.
the only plus was picking up my late Grandmother for Xmas, she loved her day being driven about in the old bus.
