Default Wow us with your XK8/R photos

After seeing the great threads for the XF and F type, I thought we needed a similar one to just post your pics on! Before, during, or after mods, painting, or just plain great pics of your cars!! It's would also be fun to see a few with the proud parents of our cars in the pics too!! Anything interesting with your car in the pic!
It's always fun to run across the occasional photo in a thread but this one is just for our photos!
Maybe if it goes well, it can be a sticky! It would be a great place to remember former and lost members before its too late, as well as the new owners to come!!

Hi Norm 427,
Although I have them, the Corvette has been in a total stripped to the bone restomod for the past 5 years. The GTO which was in very nice driver condition when I bought it, I decided I wanted to respray and since I didn't really know much about the history of the car, decided to rebuild engine, suspension..., First guy who worked on it, took it all apart then flaked. Second guy who I helped out and paid him a chunk in advance, and he flaked, so it's sitting torn apart. I am probably going to send it to Kevin King (Year One), I've spoken with him and he's a close friend of one of my close friends.

And then there's the Pantera, the truth is that in the 4 years since I bought the XKR, outside of a couple of track day events per year with So Cal Audi Club (my partner and I take turns driving his track prepared S-5, what a great car), I probably have driven the Pantera 50 miles in the past couple of years. You really have to plan for driving it. It can't be too warm (wants to overheat even if it doesn't), there can't be too much traffic (see previous excuse), your clutch leg has to have prepared by doing leg presses...the XKR is just so easy to hop in and drive spiritedly without thinking about it. If I hadn't always wanted one and still think it is one of the most beautiful, contemporary looking, striking automobile designs that any mechanic can work on, I probably would have sold it. I just can't seem to do it.

Finally the 280z, I have had since new, but it just doesn't have the power and it feels like an old car when driving it, unlike the Pantera or the XKR. So the truth is I have those interesting cars, but I just don't drive them anymore.

I am looking forward to the GTO getting back together. I can't tell you how many thousands of times I was able to stay awake in high school by sketching it in my notebook. It was and is my favorite car of all time and I just want to get back to taking out for a cruise once in a while.

And by the way, your Carnival Red XK8, besides being exquisite, shows you're a man of impeccable taste!

Thanks,
Ted

And Malbec,
Your coupe is simply stunning! Anytime you want to send it over to sit next to it's convertible counterpart, I'll be happy to take it.

OK, so I'm cheating a bit, but the E-Type was my father's (bought new in '67) and now belongs to my brother who has done an off-frame restoration on it. It's the reason I love Jags, and bought the 8 as a reminder.
