Lurker from Hull

Recommended Posts

Hi people,

I'm Dave from Hull. I'll be lurking on here after getting a sudden attack of Jag-love. It has hit me fast and hit hard!

I spent my weekend browsing and test driving X and S types, and I think I have found my happy place.

Also love Range Rovers (for my sins).

Hi and welcome. I know how you feel. I just got my first Jag dec 14th. I bought a  slightly crashed Xtype 3.0 because I wanted to do an AWD conversion on a different type of car and it was really close in measurements. It needs a new bumper and some mechanical work but after sitting in it and just feeling the car I ended up in love with it. Bad enough it took me 2 hours to name it. At my house they have to be really good or really bad to earn a name. That's when they loose their Parts car status

If I can't choose I'll have to have one of each.

They are a lot of car for the money!

I totally agree. I ended up getting mine for 650 USD. When it's done and all the problems are fixed as well as doing a tune up I should still be less then 1000

Is there a 'ull in the good ol' USA? With white phone boxes and a bridge over the 'umber?

I dont believe so, however according to research my family name originated from over there in Stratford

Hi Dan, 

My family name is the same as a Native American nation, and when I was in  Arizona, the man who ran the cafe where I went for breakfast asked me my name, and when I said Lightfoot he said "You don't look like a Lightfoot".

Lightfoot is a common name in North Lancashire.

Peter.

Native Americans in the UK sounds a bit like reverse conquering to me. I got snowed in when I was last in Arizona. Either Arizona or New Mexico they shut down every road out of town with police road blocks for about 5mm of snow accumulation. It was insane

I seem to be having that issue with the Xtype and the Stype. And for some crazy reason I'm severely starting to like the XKR. Someday when I finally can indulge in super nice cars I'm gonna end up with all 3 in the cave otherwise known as my garage.

New new cars leave me a bit cold. I feel like I'm just looking after them for the dealer as there is no real way to make them 'mine'.

Plus I'm tight! :yes:

Oh trust me I know. My wife got a 2016 honda civic in april of 2016. It took until a few months ago to finally feel like it was ours and its been in a body shop twice already because appearently people on the road cant see a big pearl white car. 

I'm thinking more like a few years old 2010-2014 ish. The newer body atyle without the new for an XKR

So what did you call it? I started a thread some time back to capture these and reasons for same - so if you would like to contribute, please do.

Hi Peter,

Does not compute - Lightfoot / Jaguar - theres no reconciling these surely?

Cheers,

Steve

I just call mine 'it'. My car has no name and no gender. Perhaps I am strange, or more likely I am the only sane one here....
