Hello everyone. I'm james, and became an xjs owner 3 years ago. I like v12 engines and decided the only realistic way of owning one was in an old jaguar. I like the xjs shape and came across a 1994 6.0 locally and ended up buying it.
It has clocked 130k miles, has good jaguar service history and engine/gearbox wise is good. The body however is not so good. Its sustained some damage in recent years and some bad rust areas......the usual places! The car was m.o.t 'd and I drove around in it till the m.o.t ran out. I had just started restoring a triumph spitfire so parked the jag up until the spitfire was finished before starting the repairs.
Well the time came last autumn to start the jag and I have begun with the engine bay.
Theres loads to do but my goal is to have it ready for the next Warren Classic and super car show at Danbury, Essex ....summer 2019.
It would be good to hear from anybody in my area with an ongoing xjs restoration.
