It is no secret that I use this Jaguar, my XJS, sparingly. Goal is to preserve it, in as excellent shape as possible, for as long as possible. Plus, it belongs to Teischan and it will be 3 years before she can drive it (legally).
She wanted to take it out. So, we took off the full body cover. Started the FIRST TIME. I keep the battery trickle charged year round. Put some oil, topped off the coolant, put the roof down and we were OFF.
It is a lovely car to drive! I feel privileged. The acceleration. Folks stay well behind once they see the acceleration from a stop. They don’t want to be embarrassed. Put it away with the hood down. That would mean we will use it again shortly. Stay tuned.
The XJ8 has been used quite a bit this Summer. Going to be using it again tomorrow.

This is BRILLIANT!
Made my day.
I am SO, SO, SO PROUD of this young man. He is going to go far. He has discernment, courage and chutzpah.
Jaguar should give this young man a new car for FREE. This was quite the statement.
Way to go.
It does NOT happen often, but every once in awhile an Indian shows that they have tremendous good tastes.
This new ‘Flying Spur’, like all Bentleys, is near magical in its presence and gorgeousness — BUT it is no longer ICONICALLY British. Aaahhh! Why or why? Why did we let this happen.
Yes, I salivated over it, not that I would ever pay that kind of money for a car. But, an old Bentley, when it was still a British Bentley, might still be on the cards at some point. SMILE.
Just wanted to share with you and also express my distress as to what has happened to Dear Bentley.

I was CRUSHED!
How could they do this to US? How could they do this to ME?
Drive up in an ugly, black KRAUT wagon. WTF!
And then this DISGUSTING German monstrosity.
Harry …. What were YOU thinking with?
I will NOT dredge up their German antecedents. We are beyond that.
But, why … oh, WHY?
You have enough Bentley’s in the family.
I really was crushed. I had to have a swig of wine to regain my composure.
I hate German bloody cars.
I love British cars.
This was CLASS.
We have Bentley’s and they don’t get ANY BETTER than that.
I had NOT heard of this concept car, which had been unveiled in 2017. I guess it didn’t get much shrift in the U.S.
So, when I first saw it in the news — and read about it in the media — I thought it was a cruel ‘modification’.
So, anything that violates the proud Jaguar legacy does not sit well with I.
But, this was OK. I am happy.
It is a REAL Jaguar.
