Hi everyone! I'm a long-time Jag fan, and just wrote a post for the HP about this awesome footage from '56! Today, any kid with a GoPro could do something similar, but can you imagine how cool this must have been to see back then? Wow!

Anyone here ever seen a D-Type in person?

Not a 'D' as such, but I had the privilege of sitting in the 2nd 'new' XKSS off the production line last month, it was airfreighted out to NZ for its official launch and our club presented a replica D and C type along with a 'F' Type SVR for a weekend display.

There's a guy called Terry Larson here in Phoenix that has several C's and D's, and at least one Lister. Its not unusual for him to turn up at Scottsdale Cars and Coffee with one or more.
He even has a V12 motor from the unicorn XJ13.
Not to mention multiple of the "lowly" Jags such as Series 1 E-Types and XK120s
