Default Gotta Love the Kudos......

I did my yearly trip to Barrett-Jackson yesterday. Did my normal valet park thing in the morning, spent a few hours meandering around talking with some people I knew then while waiting for my car at the valet stand it comes rolling up and the two people next to me (probably in there 40's) say: Woman; what a beautiful car, is it new? while the man says; No, but that's a Jaguar.... R Type right ?

Small talk lasted less than 15 seconds with my stating yes, its a R and than you for the compliments..... then added its normally my wifes driver. While getting in the car I hear his wife say.... you need to get me one of those, LOL.

Gotta love a 10 year (kinda normal) car getting kudos in a sea of classics, muscle cars and high end supercars.

Just had to share.....thanks for the read.

Lol Superb John ....I bet you stood a little taller as your car was being complimented?
I get the same with mine from time to time and ALWAYS puts a smile on my face too.

Isn't it the best feeling??

Last month while cruising down Ocean Drive on South Beach in Miami (where every exotic car known to man can be seen), 3 people looked at my 8 year old XJL and gave me complements or thumbs up!
