Belated Introduction

Postby finallyared1 » Thu May 17, 2018 1:52 pm

Hello all, been here for a little while so here is my story...
Back in 1999 I started looking for a series 3, could only find really awful examples for the money I had so begrudgingly I looked at a few '40's, as they seemed a lot of Jag for little money. Back then I knew nothing about them and jumped way too quick into owning my first Jag, a metallic green (I don't remember the exact shade) with a mushroom colour leather interior..
Image
It was a 1989 3.6 Sovereign with around 120k. I waxed it a lot but if you got close you could see how bad it was! So much went wrong with this car I vowed never to own another!
Fast forward 6 years and I used to drive past a house with a red 3.2s always in the driveway, I totally got the bug again through seeing this car and started looking again.
My next Jag was a grey 3.2s from over Lincoln way, a beautiful car in top condition but I always hated the grey interior lol. Kept this for a few years before chopping in for a 4x4.

So since then I have always said I'll get a flamenco red sport one day and last year I came across one. Not perfect but solid.

I'm using this as my daily (real daily) until we move house and I have more space to keep it for pleasure.
Thanks for this great site and accepting me!
Darren
