In a similar encounter with Jaguar executives, my neighbor, who worked at
Jaguar headquarters at the time it was owned by Ford, told me that a Ford
exec asked a Jag exec why Jags were not made to be more reliable.  The Jag
exec responded that it was because Jag owners liked to work on their cars.

Reminds me of the story of when Sir William Lyons visited the Jaguar dealer

New York during a very bad winter storm. The sales rep asked why Jaguar

couldn't build a heater sufficient to keep the interior warm. Lyons reply

why is it that Americans cant learn to dress appropriately for the weather!
