there's been a couple of really odd old cars sit out there for a while for sale. then they're gone one day. who know's what kinda shit might be out behind the trees where the driveway leads.

and there's a couple of really small european cars of some sort at a jeep place by me. I'll get some pics of them next time I go that way. one's a mr. bean-lookin' car and the other looks like a tiny bay window single cab.

I think that Jag may be a 2x2,,, with the larger rear seats... and it may even have a V12.. It may have a V12 badge on it somewhere..

Chopped and shortened. The snout is waaaay too long, IMO. Jags are a PITA to work on. But they have a nice IRS if you're going mid-engine.

I love old jag convertibles. The XK-E convertible is one of the most beautiful cars ever built, but the coupes were just ugly as hell. Talk about a car needing a chop. take about 3-4" out of the windows and push the windscreen forward a couple inches and it could have been truly beautiful and had much better proportions. Look at the newer XK coupes. Beautiful cars.

I know I am gonna get shit for this, but last weekedn I took my wife to a dahlia festival. She loves flowers and growing them. I dont buy them for her thru out the year like a good husband should, but I buy her ones she can grow and enjoy all season long. So anyway, we went to this festival, 40 acres of dahlias and in rolls 15 or 16 model A's and T's. Here are some pics




the rest are here Some nice pics of flowers too. Yeah Yeah, I know. The Ogre likes flowers too.

somebody called but got no answer. but he's a persistent little prick, and I'm sure he'll be calling again tomorrow and the next day and the next day..... At least 'till he gets an answer on the other end of the phone.

Actually, since it is a '69-'71 XK-E S2 it should have the 4.2 I-6. The 5.3 V-12 was not introduced until the XK-E S3 in '71-'75 and there is no way that nose is a series 3,or series 1.

I've never seen one before, judging by the dash pod and the steering wheel I guess it's a Mini...

I wonder if anyone ever takes those signs seriously and leans on the cars NUDE. If I wasn't hung like a two year old I might try it..after all everyone likes being nude. Right?
