Someone suggested I get an XK, I think this generation looks amazing and would definitely get one if it actually met any of the requirements for my new car. :p

The sound never gets old too.

Yeah it is definitely more grand tourer than sports car; it really feels a lot more like my old V8 XJR than anything else. Even my old XJR6 felt more nimble through tight corners.

The xjr6 is the one that found its way to Dallas, correct?

Yup, and eventually ended up on Cars and Bids after a bit of a makeover.

And here I thought the new owner wanted to part it out for the drive train.. at least that's the story I heard when he picked it up. I did one of theast drives before the stranger came and picked it up. It was nice, but felt like scaled down too much to fit me.

It seem like Jaguar had given up on the "space" part of grace, pace, and space by that point. Here's the last known sighting of the car. https://carsandbids.com/auctions/KPvzxRlq/1995-jaguar-xjr

Back out of winter hibernation and with a new O2 sensor on the driver's side. That was a bitch and a half to install, to the point where the Jag shop I go to told me to install it myself after they diagnosed the problem rather than offering to do it.

If that isn't a name for sausage & potatoes/fish & chips in a pub somewhere I'll be extremely disappointed.

"I'll have the jag & corgis and he'll have tea on the London underground, please." - tea on the London Underground would be a pasta dish with sauce. It's been a long week, leave me alone. 😐
