Put the collection outside today

Postby RedXJ40 » Thu Feb 06, 2020 5:32 pm

Normally i don't touch the cars in wintertime during the salt and rain season, but today i had to do some work in the garage and the cars had to move out.
Perfect time to take some pics and vids from them... i love doing that.... you guys too?

They look great! It's a nice coincidence you and I both have a Jade Green X300 (I have a Sovereign) and a Morroccan Red XJ40 (mine's a 3.2S) but both of mine are in far worse condition. So it's nice to see what mine could perhaps look like... one day... :cry:

I had almost forgotten how organised and clean Holland was. The garage / bar area is fantastic and I just love how the cobble stones (kinder kopijes) have been done outside.

That is a nice coincidence!

Yeah they are in nice condition, but offcourse there is always work to be done.
Especially the Daimler XJ40 needs my attention.
I have to sort out a steering fluid leak (i believe a cracked hose in the upper engine bay) it needs new rear shocks.
The other Daimler needs a new tranny gasket, and the moroccan XJ40 it's taillights keep going out, if you look carefully in the video you can see they are on in one moment and off in the next moment LOL.

But the overal condition is nice, that's true... i love them!

Feel free posting some pics of your cars here, i don't mind hijacking my topic.

Your Dutch isn't bad at all :)

Thanks for the compliments.
What is your connection to the Netherlands?

Lovely set! Was that an X300 hiding around the corner?
