1990 Jaguar XJ-S
Abandoned to a back shed by an owner who had multiple expensive issues with it. He bought a new Z4 so just let it sit 10 years. Guys at my work told me I needed to buy it so I did for $700. A cheap V-12 Jag; everyone's dream, right? After a year of carefully recommissioning and cleaning and doing all the recommended Kirby Palm modifications totaling $3K we have put 4K miles on it with issues only due to my own maleficence. Still need to do 134a conversion and new cruise control. Will be adding a hitch ($125 on ebay...) to tow the boat when it's just us going to the lake or hauling Bizzerkeley to events.
Paint and exterior
Original paint that has crazing on the flanks; kinda weird?
Upholstery and interior
Excellent condition with added left bank temp, vacuum and trans temp gauges instead of the dysfunctional trip computer.
Original Engine: Yes
Driven on the wonderful roads here and in NC. Tours with the local car club and cruising out to dinner etc.
Wheels and tires
Stock; rebuilt rear calipers (so much fun....)
Great for towing with a separate tranny cooler.
