Well the glorious age of the XJR6 is coming to an end. ELA just sold, and the new owner has just driven off in it. At least it went so someone who knew what he was buying. Once the turquoise car is collected that will mean that for the first time in a year there will be NO JAGS at chez Broadsword. Funds would allow for a cheap running project. I could repair poorly XJR6s all day long with the experience I have now gained, but somehow I don't think they will keep turning up at what I paid last time round.
A list of the Jags from the last 12 months in chronologicalish order:
XJ40 4.0 Sovereign (written off by someone who rear ended me)
X350 3.6 XJ8 SE (Royal Jag, used for holiday then sold on, fabulous condition)
X300 3.2 Sport in Sapphire Blue (still within this parish, fabulously clean example)
X300 Red Bike (obviously still within this parish, brilliant car, I had to own it at some point)
X308 XJR R1 (basket case in many ways, fixed engine up, then sold on as it had no future as a running concern, first taste of a supercharger, could never look back)
X306 XJR (ELA, a real highlight of the year as I love XJR6s)
X100 XK8 in pacific blue and remarkably with no rust (amazing cars when they are solid and working)
X308 4.0 V8 (fell into my lap, sold on, nice solid example with no issues)
X306 the turquoise shed of Pistonheads fame, proud to get it running and now the last Jag out!
By being careful and working on them myself, none of them FTPd and none of them incurred a loss, which is nice.
The two favourites out of that bunch are XJR and XK8, they are just amazing.
