As for me, my favorite (but very unreliable) vehicle was a 1963 Jaguar XKE convertible. It was great fun in the days before cell phones when one of the Lucas electrical components failed.

The shoulder is probably the most complicated joint in the entire body given the full range of motion and sports injuries to shoulders are common and surgeries involve long and painful rehab. A sports medicine specialist with lots of experience with these issues can do a range of tests and narrow down where the issue is and recommend the best treatment. They helped me avoid surgery for a number of partial tears in my rotator and bicep attachment from last skiing injury and the shoulder is now much better following physical therapy.
