:thumb: Nothin like it!

So my P38 have been in the drive with it's guts in a million pieces in the garage. Life support has been a lengthy issue due to some odd part differences in my version. This afternoon Dame Sybil was moved back into the garage with her new engine hoisted high and waiting for install. I took a brief moment to sit behind the wheel for the first time in many weeks. Instantly my back relaxed and there was this odd thing on my face. I think it was a smile. YUP I smiled! You sure don't get a smile like that crawling in and out of a frigging pavement huggin low slung $%@( Jaguar!

Since my lucky # is 13, I am waiting until Friday to start my baby back up.

Fingers crossed for Friday The 13th :wink:

Agree with the relaxing effect of a Rangie

But my XJR used to make me smile when I buried the pedal in the Shagpile :)

I think an XJR would make me smile too...as long as it was still under warranty.
So would a P38!

That is great!

I thought I saw your rig at Costco today, so apparently it was NOT, just an imposter with a nice RR.

I am about a day behind schedule due to a lift issue. :oops: My rig is stuck in the air on a pneumatic lift that has blown a seal. I am only a few hours of labour away from a start up, but can't get my tyres back on the ground to reach the engine compartment! :lol: I am unable to lift the rig about 1" to release the safety catches on the lift to let her back down.

If all else fails I'll be diggin out my HiJack and WWII military hoist and lifting it all up to remove the previous lift! :twisted:

OMG I LOVE THE XJR!!! Have had 2 in the family. Both have had less problems than the Hyundais. :D I love that feeling and the sound and EVERYTHING when you punch the throttle and hear the wine, get sucked back in your seat and look at the driver of the low rider souped up honda stare at you in amazement, as you blaze off in a large luxury sedan. LOL! priceless.... Both vehicles put a very large smile on my face, I like my rover a bit more than the jag. I haven't been able to drive my rover this past week, and I often times get in it just to sit and relax.

I love the sound my wine makes. It has a rather melodic aviary sound, as any P38 owner's wallet is familiar with... cheap.... cheap. I can hear it as I unscrew the top off the bottle... cheap .... cheap.

That transmission whine makes the rover sound like a tractor. Which is a good sound in my opinion. I kind of miss driving it :( . Next week it will be my daily driver though, very excited can't wait! :D
