BritBox's Reasons to Like British Cars

They are not really taxable as assets when the parts are spread all around your garage and basement

You lose weight because you have less money to spend on food

There's no place for a computer to be connected to download failure codes

They're like cats: they don't love you back, but you like 'em anyway because they're cute

They're like dogs: the perfect companion for a little excursion. Yes, they leak on the floor sometimes...

People tend to be a little wistful when they admire them, instead of lustful

You look good driving one

You don't really need a radio because the engine sounds so cool. What's a CD player?

Driving one is a process in and of itself, not just a means to get to a destination

Working on one is a process in and of itself, not just a means to keep a car running

They connect you to a certain point in time at the country of origin; to a proud history of British automotive achievement
