So I used to work at a parts store here in NH that used to be a Robbins that was in a building that used to be a Studebaker dealership. Well, this poster was wedged between the parts shelves and a support column that held up a newer mezzanine.
They’re out there, lurking. Skulking. Waiting. Under carports and tarps, dust covers and sheets, forgotten in the backs of barns and garages or lavished with attention. Jags, Healeys, Triumphs, MGs, Fiats, Porsches all are itching to be used by owners who aren’t part of the shine and show crowd, but don’t want to show…
I don’t know why. It’s bigger than my racecar. I need it. I need IDEAS!
The Jaguar S-Type is an executive class cruiser that was built from 2000 through 2008 on a platform shared with the Lincoln LS. If you see an S-Type in Europe, there is a good chance that it has a small V6 and a 5-speed manual gearbox, but on this side of the pond most were equipped with Ford semi-automatic slushbox.…
Seen in Pompei.
(It’s a new year and soon Ill release a new list of affordable Ferrari track eaters, in the meanwhile enjoy this classic list of sports cars and widow makers which are still hard to replace, although there are some new contenders. Stay tuned for my updated list on Friday morning.)
A great concours event today in La Jolla, California. Enjoy the photo dump.
Great Apparel News!...and shameless self/Blipshift promotion.
Enjoy a quick video of the song of my Jaguar’s people. (Bad picture, decent audio)
Had to take my sister to get her instrument fixed. Found this in his driveway: 1967 E-Type Coupe. He is slowly restoring it and fixing it up to do vintage cross country races! Currently the axels are from a newer XJ coupe. He is rebuilding the original engine. Has to pull the fenders another inch or two to fit wide…
They may have been up for a while now, but I just fell on them today. I ended up with an XE R-Sport AWD.
Especially in concept form...
Mushahi66's post reminded me that I found an uncamo’d F-Pace the other day, looks pretty ok.
The band that wraps around the interior of the current Jaguar XJ can be referred to as the “Riva Line.” I remember Jaguar’s design team always mentioned they took cues from the 60s Riva Aquaramas.
Over the President’s Day weekend my dad decided to go on a short excursion up the Sonoma Coast of California, north of San Francisco and Marin. Despite being a rather isolated region, the rampant wealth of both money and good taste was not absent here. Plenty of rare and expensive cars were seen, some of which I was…
I recently completed some suspension work on the Jaaag and finally had time to wash it and take a few pictures. As I’ve mentioned before the rear end sits a bit high for my taste, also the interior hasn’t been cleaned in 2 weeks and the center console is out for reupholstery, I’ll have to give it a better cleaning and…
The XE should be showing up at dealerships in a few months(the manual won’t come until next year), what is Oppo’s opinion of the Jaguar’s new 3-er fighter?
Exhausts are amazing. They fill every enthusiast with joy (unless it is a ‘99 Civic, if you know what I mean) and fill every environment with gases. So, here is one question- what is the best stock exhaust you have ever heard?
A few things actually.
