Default MK II rescued from the scrap yard

Purists might have a conniption when they get a look at all the American bits that went into saving this old Jag but I think it's amazing. And it seems like a steal for 17k. Check out the story on this gorgeous machine here!

The only thing that I don't like about it, is the colour of the red vinyl, it makes me think of red liquorice.
I would have preferred an ivory interior.
Red on red is just a bit too much.

Maybe you should consider it as it is not that expensive to reskin the seats to the color you want? Those V6 engines are very reliable and have a lot of options for upgrades....

Very nicely done. Engine looks like it fits better than the original
