I recently had the chance to visit the Alberta “Museum of Making”, a museum full of old steam equipment and best of all, CARS. I brought along my Panasonic GH4 and only 1 lens (whoops) to take some photos. If you have the chance, I highly recommend going to this museum, 1 trip is not enough to drink it all in. »
This has been cooking in my head for a while now. I have always believed that my theory about owning and driving a car was the best one, for me. And obviously, it is. Well, it was. Because I changed. I knew I had to. It was time to change things and let go of the past. »

Saw this beauty last night, mmm... Met a friend of a friend who was slowly restoring this E-Type, and has been trying to get Petrolicious to cover the build, rear end is all prepped to paint. Car was orignally yellow, and was painted red a while back, and originally came from Texas and drove its way here, stopping in… »
A new televised spot for the upcoming Bond film, SPECTRE, came unannounced and seemingly out of nowhere during the NBA Finals last night because the people needed something to be excited about, I guess.
Greeting Oppos! I was showing a friend of mine around DC this past week, and while tourist-ing, I spotted this plastic wrapped XJR L with manufacturer plates (Jaguar HQ is in New Jersey) doing a U-Turn at the White House entrance at Pennsylvania and 15th. You’ll notice that the R badges are covered with tape, as well… »

But now for the real test.
What does it ride like?
Well, all the other reviews to date have only driven this in Spain, on pristine toll roads and around a race track…yes really…a race track?!
Taking it down some heavily rutted, pitted and pot holed B roads the XE doesn’t disappoint.
Even with our XE’s ‘Sport Suspension’…
Below are some videos I’ve seen over the past few years showcasing the sounds and cars of the Italian V8 Superstars/Euro V8 Series cars. This series features some of the coolest cars racing in the world, it’s a shame there isn’t a lot of money in the series. I think this would be an excellent replacement for the… »
Yesterday, my name sharing counterpart of Truck Yeah! fame wrote a great piece about the 2016 Jaguar F-Type and more specifically the addition of a manual transmission for the U.S. market. I literally got goosebumps as he described the perfect F-Type S scenario and extolled the virtues of being the kind of person who… »
Just happened upon this absolutely beautiful Series 3 E-type as I was tootling around my neighbourhood. I believe the colour is an original Jag colour, Sable, and while I’m no expert in these matters, it looked freakin’ amazing. »
If you describe yourself as a normal person, take a look in your phone’s contact list. Rifle through all those names until you find the dullest person you know. Take a good look at that phone number - that should be the one you dial when you have questions about buying a car. If you think the best route is asking your… »
In response to my last post about why you should’t Top-Off your gas tank, and the damage to your car that can result from it, I found out that apparenty not everyone knew what that term means. For those that don’t know, it means that you’re literally overflowing your fuel tank on purpose. The reason people do it… »
Wish I could’ve heard it but just seeing it was pretty cool. Wing is a little silly but I think its fitting. Second pic below. »
I was cruising with a couple of my groomsmen the other day to go check out suits in my E34 M5 when this dude in a Jaguar F Type R screamed by me and passed me on the left like I was standing still. The noise sounded like a cross between a sport bike and a muscle car. This thing was easily louder than my M5 with a… »
