having some work done on it... rear end - brakes, bushings, master cylinder, shocks, fuel injection harness, plugs, other wiring bits.... compression test result - 180lbs across the board.. It should run better after all is said and done.

I don't have a Jaguar right now, but a Bentley, a Healey 3000 and a TR3A, but a chum spotted this in a car park in Cheltenham UK today and I thought you might like the picture.

That's beautiful Ashley... it epitomizes what open road touring is all about.

This might be of interest too. It's the second E Type to have been built. I saw it at the Jaguar and Healey meeting at Prescott Hill Climb, which is the home of the Bugatti Owners Club.

Had a pair of fog lamps added to the front of my XJ6 Series 2 (like you see on Daimlers of the same model). Also new headliner from Myrtle and new shiny wooden knobs on the fresh air levers, as the old Bakelite ones were disintegrating. With the reconditioning of the leather seats, she'll be beautiful again. Work should be finished next week. Will post photos.

Still trying to learn the personality of my new '95 XJS convertible with 189K miles. Had such trouble for about 3 weeks with the top either not going up, or not going down, or usually both. Also passenger window went down, but not upsmiling smiley. Moved all the relays in the trunk many times. Was at the point of looking for motors on the internet. Decided to try it once in the supermarket parking lot. It went down. Got home, let it sit for a couple hours, then it wouldn't go up. Sat all night in the garage, then it went up and down and up and down and has worked ever since. Anyone have a relative of my Jag that has a similar personality?
One of the two straps has come loose from the aluminum piece riveted to the strut, so when the top is half down, I have to push the rear window a little into the well and then it doesn't hit the back of the seat. Don't know whether to try to fix just that, or to get a new top with new dampening material instead of the horsehairsmiling smiley. Would like to replace the top myself but I know it's one really big job. Comments welcomedsmiling smiley.

Looking good John, nothing like fresh paint to get exited about!

What colour is that?

Just my 2 1/2 cents my series 1 xj6 had an msd electronic ignition fitted.It just scared the hell out of me.Always thought if it crapped out on the road where do I start? That’s why I always carried an extra distributer with me.At a British car show in New Hampshire there was a vender British Vaccume Unit who rebuilt distributers.Got home and sent him my distributer.Best thing I ever did to any car I ever owned.The difference in proformance was was like driving a different car.

With the weather so bad, did the following:

Opened the Garage Door

Removed car cover

Started our 1997 XJ6

Backed it up three feet, so the exhaust was outside.

Let it run for 15 min, checked the fluids and charging system.

Pulled it back in.

Replaced Car Cover.

Waiting for winter to end, so it can get some greatly needed road time.
