Let the shopping begin!

Hi Readers...yes, I'm still alive, forgive me for my absence.

Well with Thanksgiving Day firmly behind us here in the States, I can now focus on Christmas!

I found the perfect car to compliment my Cougar XR7! The color doesn't clash, in fact they would be a perfect match. I'm adding it to my Christmas "wish" list, heck, I'll even limit the list to just this one item :-)

1990 Jaguar XJS:



Original MSRP- $55,500.00
Standard Engine- 5.3L 263HP V12
Torque- 288

Do I care that it only gets 13-18mpg? Ummm...NO! It's a Jag, a convertible and I would love every second of driving it!

Ho, Ho, Ho...Santa, I hope you can fit this item into your bag, in fact I'll make it easy on you, just go to Barrett - Jackson "The Worlds Greatest Collector Car Auctions"

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Jaguars. I know about all the "costs" with parts and servicing nightmares and all the other "warnings that fly out of a man's (sorry guys, but it's the men that throw out the complaints!) mouth at the mention of "I'd love to buy a Jag"...but none of that matter's when you want a car out of sheer joy, love and admiration of the beauty, design and technology that went into the vehicle.

So there's my Christmas wish :-)

I hope all of you are happy, healthy and enjoying every day that you are given.

  2. Yes it's been a long time. I'm told I'm a worry wart. Glad you are back. Yep! That Jag sure does look good. Hope Santa is good this year. Looking forward to your auto post. I'd like to get a swt of hot wheels one day. But getting away with a bike or ywo is good for right now.

  3. Well, they say if you can afford to buy it, you'd better be able to afford to fix it.

    Nice to see you again...Welcome back!!
