Default The Mundane-O has gone.

It had to go.
Bits were falling off, bits stopped working every few weeks, the doors only opened in the front, the glove box said no, it was a creeping kind of mechanical malaise.... the highlight was when a heavy metal bracket fell from godknowswhere under the dash onto my little ladies feet as I was driving.
So a replaceemnt was purchased and I've been busy doing the ridiculluss amount of forms and paperwork needed.

The old spine is so compehensively bolloxed the Mungdano wasnt really helping it. So I now have a comfy car ! I have purchased a Jaygwarr...... said in American stylee.

Fortunately the Ford infection only spread as far as the x type. The S type remained true Jaguar.
It's owned by Tater now.

Spot on!

I lost when bidding for an S-type 4.2 V8 sport on a 53 plate.
All black with 18" wheels off an XK8, two tone unmarked leather black and cream. It was immaculate.
Sold for 1825 becasue tbh thats all it was worth.

Lucky if you can sell them at all! Mike's just paid a small fortune to get a fault in his sorted - he never drives it very far but he gets a lot of pleasure just from looking at it!
