Default XJ40 in Iowa

New guy to Jags. Just picked up a 1991 XJ40 sovereign a few days ago. I cant even begin to explain how immaculate this thing is. Every piece of this car is like brand new. A few very small issues, but I'll get into that in some of the appropriate sections. Anyways, heres a few pics.

Amazing automobile. Keep it in that shape and it can only climb north of whatever you paid for it.

Shes only got 69,500 miles on her, and you would NEVER guess it had that much by looking at it. Its got paperwork for every part that was ever bought for it, and all the work was done by the dealer. I was looking for the in-line fuses for the radio under the console, and as I was taking it apart, I realized that it had never been taken apart before. The screws were brand new. I felt kinda bad for trying to do it myself. Hahaha
