They ought to bring back the Ford Model T. I am not joking. Well a, a modern version of it. The Model T engine is listed on Ward’s 10 Best Engines of the 20th century.
The Model T didn’t even have a fuel pump! It relied on gravity feed, and it didn’t have a water pump either. Henry Ford made it out of the finest materials he could find, not like the plastic of today’s cars. At $850 brand new, any one who had the smallest job could afford one, even back then.
Also listed is the VW flat 4 engine, the engine of the Volkswagen Beetle. The Honda is a good car, but it’s too complicated. There’s too much electrical crap on it to make it keep going. I like that Ford F150. The old ones, not the new ones. A cheap initial price. Keeps running forever. Nice heater, nice A/C on it. EVERYTHING worked on that old Ford, and I didn’t give but $750 for it. You could haul stuff with it, although I hardly ever did.
Actually, GM has engines on this list, so does Honda, Toyota, BMW, Ford, and Porsche.
I am surprised the Ford inline 300cu 6cyl is not on this list. That thing is indestructible.
In India, many cars are more like Cushmans. 3 wheel jobs. I am not saying get one of those. I am saying.. GET A OLD FORD F150! That thing was the best I ever had.
