Yea, I have not stopped by here in a while, but my old girl is still with me. Front main seal is bleeding worse then US spending budget lately. Will have to address that soonish.
Meanwhile, here is what I did do in the last 3 months!

Your son (I presume) is just too cool for school! Great photo and beautiful car, even if it not British.

Its ok Mark, I too didn't see the XJS 'curves' at first...must be that burnt orange color that always makes me think of our arch-nemisis, the Texas Longhorns. that XJS would look much better, in my opinion, in red or black.

Ya, the orange color fooled me; it just didn't look like a Jag. I was thinking it was a early '70s muscle car of some sort.

It is 2009 Corvette color, WA418p by PPG Deltron. It looks brown in the shade, but varies from red to orange metallic, depending on intensity of the sunlight.
Since XJS has little to none of classic car value, my wife and I decided to live a little.
