Did you repair or replace some worn out parts?
Add a new accessory or performance part? Give it a good cleaning?
Take it out for a drive on twisty back roads?

I opened the garage door and yep she was still there. She's a 1956 XK140 MC I bought her in 1969, blew the engine in 1970. Parked her in my grand parents boat house. June 8, 2008 she moved on her own again. The harder I drive her the better she runs. Did a lot of work on her over the last few years. Still the same paint job from 1969.

Nice paint job, looks like a real dragster!

Did you delete the front bumpers? Looks swoopy

No, the one photo was taken just after I got it running again. The original owner cut a hole in the front and built a air ram tube that ran to the carbs, he raced the car from 56 to 62.
The paint job in 1969 cost $100.00.

Put in new spark plugs, cleaned the points, rotor, and distributor cap. Topped off the dash pots. Out for a drive shifting at 4,800 to 4,900 she pulls real good.

I find that from my last updates to the old yellow, with was about two years ago. We were able to drive old yellow fairly often, but now it's time for maintenance. I found that the new brake shoe I installed my not be the correct shoes. I thought the master cylinder was the problem, now I think the problem is the metal frame of the shoes were dragging against the inside of the drums. I keep telling myself the drag was from the inside drum back plate which the shoes attach. The shoes look just like what my old xk unlimited parts book show, but not sure.
Planning on new axle bearings and seals somethime this winter.
