Hi All


Recommended Posts

I had been looking for a small practical car, one that I could get from A to B with out costing too much in fuel. A car that I wouldn’t get attached too. I looked at cars such as smart cars or a mini or maybe even a corsa . I limited my self to a twenty mile radius so as not to struggle to pick up the car. I was in no rush after all my present cars tax and mot doesn’t run out till July so no pressure there then. So all in all sensible level headed approach to a replacement car.

So why o why was I walking through the small village of Bempton over four hours and some 60 odd painfully ( courtesy of BR ) long and cold miles from where I lived to buy a V8 S type that excluding pictures, I hadn’t even seen yet?

But ho boy was it worth it.

A very nice Carnival Red with full leather trim

87,000 miles on a T plate so all good their.

All but the last service carried out by Jaguar main dealers, so good their too.

Things that I have learnt after 5 days and 600 miles in the lake district.

Use a funnel to top up the oil.

Use a anti slip mat designed for lap trays on the passenger seat to stop the wife from sliding around.

Don’t under any circumstances allow the wife to see the instant mpg readout when driving up hills.

Do ensure the wife sees the mpg readout when crusing down the other side of the hill.

Ignor the mpg read out whilst your body is pressed into the seat as you leave that idiot behind you who as been up your !Removed! for the last five miles just because you can wait patiently for the cars in front to safely pull over

And don’t allow your driving license to fall between the drivers seat and centre consol. As it’s a bugger to get out.

All the best
