1990 Jaguar XJ12 XJS
I travelled to an affluent part of town and pulled into an elite neighborhood of mansions. At the lasthouse on a beautiful lane the Jag waited for us. Sitting squarely in the middle of a 2 car garage, he Jag gleamed bright in the spotless abode. We were greeted by perhaps the friendliest individual in the world at that moment, ho walked us thru the particulars. The car belonged to his father in law who stopped driving it and handed it down in the age old tradition. The man was very knowledgeable and assured us he had not only driven the 100 miles to home, ut was now doing his errands and put puttingaround in the golfcourse community. He had been thru all the operating procedures and told us this: in its lifetime, very main working part of the vehicle had been gone thru aside from the drivetrain. Hoses and gaskets had been done recently, he top motor and hydraulics had been replaced, rakes were done, ew tires and the list went on. There looksto be 300 pages ofreceipts and records. All the lights worked, nterior and exterior, nd the anti lock brake light had been on since the top motor had been re-done. The bottom is spotless and I asked for aflash light to check for leaks. There were none and the garage floor was as dry as a bone. The mans only nit was that the small gaskets that surround thelicense platelights had deteriorated and also that two straps holding the top boot down had shrunk. I have had over 400 cars and this is one of the top 3 cleanest ones. After driving it one can only describe the experience as "whooshing". The motordoesn't roar, ou just take off in a beautiful slipstream that gets better as you go faster. It is easy to keep on the road andresponds very well to any road condition.The top is perfect and every wheel is flawless with no peeling chrome or scraped aluminum. You do not want to get this car dirty in the rain. I doubt it has everseen inclement weather. We have a very beautiful car here. Upkeep can be a big part of Jaguar ownership and this one had all thepreventive maintenance one could imagine, arris.
