(One day Porsche will admit that it was the English ba$tard, Lucas the prince of darkness, that designed our electrical system... same guy who did MG and Triumph)
My very early automible life was centered on MG's for more years than I care to admit. Lucas became a swear word akin to hocking up some deep lung phlem. If Porsche ever admitted to an affiliation with Lucas, I would be filing for divorce.
