I need one too
Let me know if you find one
Just realised XK8 convertibles are down to about ?5,500 and S Type Rs down to about ?4,000! Mind you ?2,000 buys you an early XJ-R, ?2,000 for 4 litres of supercharged Jag, that's just criminal!
So's the petrol bill
Not as criminal as the petrol bill on 5.3 litre's of Jaguar's finest. Pre-HE, running on carbs of course
Seen as THAT V12 is a masterpiece of English heritage, I propose that to keep more beautiful Jaguar V12's on the road, anyone driving one get's half price petrol. For services to Queen and country, showing the British population EXACTLY what they are missing by dragging the British car industry to it's knees and driving about in boring euroboxes.
Hear hear! The car in front is a Toyota!
I wouldn't mind if the people driving these Euroboxes, and universal electro-Japanese boxes got a move on; but having brought our motor industry to it's knees they insist on driving at 35 MPH on derestricted roads so that those of us who drive proper British cars, and are trying to keep Britain solvent, spend all day stuck in slow moving traffic.
Mind you, the new XJ got plenty of publicity during last year's Royal Wedding, whilst we also see plenty of glimpses of them on the News coming and going in Downing Street.
Personally though, I much prefer the look of the old XJ.
