Default New to Jaguar

Hi all, I just purchased my first Jaguar, a 2002 XK8 convertible. I've always admired Jaguars but never looked into owning one until now. I found this one on AutoTrader from the original owner with only 53000 miles.
I live in Brooksville, FL north of Tampa, I retired from IBM in Muncie, Indiana and moved to Florida full time last year. I used to do a lot of my own service on vehicles but my health doesn't allow me to do very much anymore. I still do a lot of research to understand how everything is supposed to work and do as much as I can.

Thanks, Mike

Thanks ElinorB, the hurricane missed us for the most part, we just had a little wind and some rain and now we're back to sunshine and humidity.
