It is that time of year again. Needed to get my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 inspected. Well, there is only one person around here that I trust with my Jags. Paul Bousquet, “B-Boys Auto Repair” in Barnstead. Paul, always, has a magnificent display of flowers at his place and all the flowers are his. He is an amazing person. So many talents. The foliage was on the way back. I stopped at three places.

Out and about two days running (in every sense of the word). Well it, i.e., the XJS, along with the XJ8, the MGB and the Nissan Quest, all needed to be registered prior to month end. Plus the XJS needed some petrol. For those of you who have never owned a Jaguar, Jaguars run on PETROL, not gas. Got that. This was at the Town Hall.

They are all registered. You can actually see the bright green 2018 decal on the number plate. Next step — having them inspected. In the case of the Jags that will be Wednesday.

My Jaguar XJS V-12 (1989) Gets A Rare Outing.

I have NOT driven it much at all this year. I have, of course, been using my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 — though not that much either.

It is that time of the year. Both Jags and the MGB need to be registered by October 1 — which also means, in New Hampshire, that I have to get them inspected. So, I thought I should stretch the XJS’ legs prior to taking it to ‘Paul’ at B-Boys, in Barnstead, on Wednesday. It is a fun car to drive.

British Pride Redux (2 Topless) — July 17, 2016.

First time this year that we had all three of the British beauties out. The burgundy 2002 XJ8 is my car and as such gets used year round. I have also been using the black 1989 XJS, topless (of course), since around April. But the Green 1968 MGB had stayed in the garage, under wraps, until this Sunny Sunday. I had been trickle charging its (rather old) battery right through the winter, with occasional long breaks and much to my delight the MGB started, first time, even without me having to tighten the battery clamps.

So all three cars were out for the first (and since then last) time. Took both the MGB (with Devanee) and XJS (with Teischan) for spins — topless. It was fun.

Given that we got the XJS in June 2015 we have now had these 3 cars for over a year.

Here is the original “British Pride” picture from June 7, 2015.
