Red XJ40 (either XJ6 XJ12 or Sport – I didn’t catch the number to date it!) I was staring at it as it approached and was really taken by surprise when the driver waved – I stopped flashing/waving at other Jaguars years ago, as no-one ever acknowledges me!
I was REALLY upset that I hadn’t been able to wave or flash Tiggy’s headlamps in time!
Anyway, returning home, I saw it again – this time with headlamps on (which made it look like a Sovereign!) and it took me by surprise so I only just managed to wave in time! It was just outside Midhurst going back towards Horsham at 2.40 pm the same day. I am hoping the owner might read this, as it is VERY unusual for an XJ40 driver to acknowledge another one, in my experience!
Usually i'm so surprised when i see one coming towards me i don't actually wave , i just point in amazement
God knows what they must think
But don't run away with the idea that your not noticed though , i went in to a local motor factors to buy something for my Rover SD1 and the chap said '' i see you have fitted a new set of wheels to your car ''
This was a few miles away from home and i was quite surprised , i also noticed a lot of drivers staring at me when out driving in the Rover , i didn't realise why until my daughter said ''they're staring at the car dad'' , i just thought it was increased road rage
