Even in recent times companies like TVR got massive press for very fast and great sounding V8's but owners were always blowing them up or suffering break downs, just like the older Triumph *cough* 3 liter V8 . Total crap
I disagree about the Datsun 4 banger, their 2000 was a fail, but the 1800 was a perfected version of a BMC UK POS and they performed ok and lived well over 100,000 miles... unlike the BMC engines
The king though is the 16 valve Lada. 8 valves in the engine and 8 in the radio
