i hate to tell you, but you definitely trashed your rod bearings. my independent is taking apart one now that ran for just two or three minutes without oil pressure. in his opinion the cams and their bearings are probably ok, but the bottom end will do bad things if left alone. if you wish to save the engine, pull it and replace the bottom end bearings. the fact that you drove it so long tells me it might be even worse. perhaps you should send it out now for rebuild before the major parts get ruined. if the car is a very good specimen, perhaps it would be worth it to send the engine to Jasper.

Driving a car into a heavy object such as a curb is not going to end well.
I don't know why people do it.
It's a Jaguar, not a dump truck.
