That's a fantastic series XJ, also happens to be the shape that had the eight year old me fall in love with Jaguars...

I think if finances allow, I'll be looking for one mulyslef next year.

Beautiful cars, truly beautiful


Thanks Carl. It's needing some body work, it's by no means perfect but it didn't cost me much and like yourself, it was the first Jag I fell in love with, was the car my dad had when I was born so was brought home in a series 3 all those years ago, so always promised myself one and don't regret it. (Jag in the blood, first car I ever went in and will be a Jag that I go out in when I've kicked the bucket).

The only thing I would change would be the colour. Dads was British Racing Green, but there's so few left, I'm more than happy with the Westminster Blue.

Very thirsty though! Makes the XJ40's look like a Prius!

Number plate change coming for this car - as it is pre-1990, I cant get it a uniformed H18 S plate like a couple of the others being an 87 MY car, so have this morning bought XJI2 812.

Thinking of treating the X-Type to an H18 S plate to bring it more in line with the rest of the cars (I strictly want to keep the S on FVC so that will never get a private plate)

Paul!

If I'm not mistaken, this car is on car and classic now!

What happened?

Hi Carl. It's sure is. I've had it a year and done nothing with it, and it's a shame. It's not an urgent sale, I have periods of not wanting to let go, but realistically it will be a while before I can get round to the body work and every time I go to make a move on doing something with it, the S and the Majestic jump right in with a new issue. So yes, just seeing if it floats anyone's boat.

Now sold, off to a guy 20 minutes away who wants to do it up and re-sell. This will probably crop up on eBay/Car & Classic soon

Hmmm, decisions. Majestic is getting tarted up for 2018, that wing is being sorted, especially since it drew people in like flies at Cosford, so hopefully get it back this week. The S hasn't moved in a year, so that's second, want to get a few bits done to that and take it to some shows. We shall see, you know what I'm like!

XJ40 owners have a habit of zooming in on other people’s cars minor faults. I don’t know why, but we all do it don’t we. :?
Why do we refuse to accept faults?
