Default Finally got a car I like!

Hello, I currently live in Oklahoma city, butt I originate from the Pacific Northwest. After years of only being able to afford pieces of junk I was finally able to get my hands on an XK8 that's on really good shape for its mileage.
Anyway, I'll have plenty of questions about where to get parts, and what can I modify without actually getting out the cutting torch of course.

Thanks folks! I started my membership from my phone and it was limited in what I could change. I think I have it done now..... Obviously let me know if I'm missing something still!

Welcome. Had me going there for a minute as soon as I saw your avatar. I guy that I know, or met once twelve years ago, uses the exact same avatar on another automotive forum. But surely can't be the same person as the location and initials are wrong. Either that or you've been lying to us for years about how much you love your other car

I'm so glad you finally got a car I like too! Really there is a lot to be said for owning a car you like and enjoy living with. I still don't have any real desire for anything other than Jaguar. Your XK8 is sweet. Great color. That carbon fibre dash is an awesome mod already. Welcome, and have fun!

I also love the color of your late-model XK8 convertible. I hope you will get great enjoyment out of it. I certainly love mine!
