this one may give you some ideas watty
Jaguar XJ8 , General Lee replica , 1997 | eBay
No one seems to have done one of these old skool style. I reckon with the classic lines on it, it could be made to look a lot older than it is. Not forcing ideas on you Watty, just a model I've never thought of doing before and I can see it's got good potential for a lot of ideas.... only whilst they are cheap. Damn, I wish I had a bigger unit!
Yeah i like that V12 ones as well but thought a six cylinder would be better fo me with the DIY stuff, does sound good that engine
A mate had a series 3 years ago and i think thats when i thought id like to try one someday. Wasnt a V12 but i was till good i thought
Gonna need some luck having 2 old timers ( the nasty as well) to try keeing decent now
Yeah i like the colour fine, i wouldve went for the lighter blue ones if i couldve but im happy with that. Interior is a nice palce to be, just feels quality/ kinda cosyish
Thanks Mr C
Im not complaining for the money, its a lot of car like you said
Yeah it runs and drives good mate, well for now anyway but im well happy
I think the weak link in it would be the old autobox but its worth the chance and i could break it and get something back if it decided not to play anymore
Suppose Mot time will tell. Im only gonna replace the baldy tyre for that just to see how it gets on
Thanks PAYNO, cool
Would be even cooler if you got a free Daisey Duke with it
I really like that car, very cool and looks mean as well
When i think of the Jags up to the 90s i always think of the 60/70s bank robbers, they ALWAYS had a Jag!
Woulnt mind one like your pals one, get a old stocking on the face or a balaclava just for the full effect!
Dont really know whatll ill do with it mate except blacking out the chrome, would love a different/ wider set of alloys as well
Got to say this old machine is pretty addictive. Its an old car but ive never driven anything like it. It just glides along smoothly and quietly and then the six gets a nice deep rasp if you hit the kickdown
The S60 has the most comfy/ support combo seats of any car ive had till i sat in the ones in this Jag, your not so snug in them but their just really comfy
Wont be touching this now till i get a couple of thing done with the e32 and its back on the go and ill see how it goes
Been googling images of them to see how i can make it look better
I was in an empty Tesco garage tonight and saw a Green x400 pull up across the forecourt but this thing was super low, almost as low as my BM! When I had a peek I saw a 80 year old bloke putting fuel in it, I thought 'surely not'... As he drove off it even had the tell tale panama hat on the back shelf, but then I noticed all the return lips on the arches was chewed up and spat out, are those on air or something? If they are, his didn't work anymore... or someone had nicked his springs...
Dunno then. If I wasn't rushing about I'd have gone and had a butchers, didn't look too safe. You going to drop yours (properly) to join the long and low club?
No no no, dont do this Rude!
Been looking at different wheels tho. Theres not much choice for them but e39 ones with the bigger hub size fit so dont know yet, if i had the money id buy the Jaguar Penta ones
Got to make the nasty the priority tho, got to get that in better shape and get out in the thing
Low and slow bro. Reinventing curb crawling....
