Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

Thanks Simon I wasn't familiar with the duck-bill, but I'll give that a look. Sunroof drains were my first thought. The car has 54,000 on the clock. I'll be keeping it at a local classic car storage facility, so it will be undercover most of the time. Alas when it is home for weekends, it will have ...

Re: Morroco Red DD6 J6 DXJ, who bought it?

But I've started a new thread in the readers gallery - which is probably a better place for my ownership trials and tribulations This should be the link My Car Thanks again PS - no I didn't test drive it before setting o...

Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

I've owned 49 cars, I've got on my bucket list, owning a Jag/Daimler, and own a car with more than 8 cylinders. So car no 50 is a 1993 Daimler Double Six for a double whammy :D The car was advertised on eBay, it was obviously quite a good one, and there were lots of early bids. But as it was a great...

Re: Morroco Red DD6 J6 DXJ, who bought it?

Well I made it home. 275 miles non-stop Drove okay, good oil pressure and a rock solid temperature gauge. The guy doing the oil change spotted a subframe Bush that needs doing, but they couldn't get the bits in time. I'll add that to the list. Cruise control and a/c are in need of TLC, but everythin...

Re: Morroco Red DD6 J6 DXJ, who bought it?

Good advice on the dizzy cap etc - thank you. I'll take a good look at the service history, and see when stuff has been changed. I may end up selling a kidney, and doing the plugs, and leads when I'm there. This is my first Jaguar product, but my 50th car, so hopefully I've gained a bit of general c...

Re: Morroco Red DD6 J6 DXJ, who bought it?

The owner has a neighbour with a small garage, who looks after the car for him. I've spoken to the garage owner, and he is going to give it an oil change, and a once over for me. That should lessen but not eliminate the risks of a visit to the hard shoulder - I hope. Certainly piccies will be upload...

Re: Morroco Red DD6 J6 DXJ, who bought it?

The person who has bought it is me :D Well almost - I'm off on a train tomorrow to go and collect it and then drive it 270miles home to Hampshire. Been wanting to get a V12 Jag off of my bucket list for a while. It isn't perfect, I don't believe it has had too much love in the last couple of years, ...
