Classic Jags


#1

The shit that doesn't merit its own thread (the resurrection)
#2

You getting old ?


#3

Haha, just always liked them, this never went in to production.


#4

You need to get yourself to the motor museum at Gaydon…


#5

I still miss my XJ6 Series 3. Most enjoyable car I’ve owned.


#6

Are these the ones with the legendary ride quality?


#7

It was fantastic both in terms of ride and (despite the apparent bulk) handling. It was also nice to have what seemed like a merlin engine at the front! I recall going for a ride in Julian Richer’s S Class Merc 600 at about the same time & thinking how horrible & dead it was. The Jaguar really did feel supple. Brother in Law was working for RR/Bentley at the time & even he was impressed.


#8

I drove a friends to a Karting event down south a few years ago (he had a gas conversion on his), I got out as fresh as a daisy, terrific ride and sharp handling.


#9

A friend of my dad had one. It left a big impression on me. We all called it ‘The Big Cat’


#10

I don’t think I have a digital pic of mine but it was a lovely looking thing. iirc Pininfarina redesigned the mk3 body & aesthetically (to me anyhow) they pretty much nailed it. No Jag saloon since has been as pretty. Just the right balance of sleek & curvaceous.

This was my fav Jag…the XJ 12C.

Especially after seeing one in Custom Car mag many moons ago. It was something like this…

#13

I was an impressionable teenager at the time. Plus the mag had a lot of ladies draped over cars “:ok_hand:


#14

Ah, pics of young ladies draped over cars. There is a lot to be said for fond memories of frantic self-abuse decades after the event…<< :fist:>>


#15

The bottom one is John Steeds Jag from the Avengers.


#16

You have all got this far and nobody has posted one of these, shame on you.


#17

That makes it no less horrendous, despite the possibility of a youthful Miss J. Lumley in leather gear tied up in the boot.


#18

Meh.

E types are the dogs nuts

My Grandad had two type D’s, wish we still had them now.
