Jaguar XK150 DHC (1957-1961)

July 15th, 2008 · No Comments

No, this is not a cabriolet, this is a… drophead coupĆ©! Damn, such nice names are given to such nice cars! Is this the proper car to live a glorious life, or what?! What a beauty… Granted, at first it was slower than the XK140 it replaced, but they quickly resolved that with some bigger […]

Jaguar E-Type

Well, this car needs no introduction, and no tech talk either. This is the E-Type! Currently, I work near a prime wedding location, Delft city hall. Very handy for spotting nice cars on your lunch break šŸ™‚

Jaguar Mark II 3.4 (1967-1969)

May 25th, 2008 · No Comments

Oh, sometimes you just get lucky. On my way to a restaurant, I run into this beauty. One of my favorite Jaguars, and a 3.4 liter as well! This car was sort of a racing monster in its days, being the preferred car of all of those who wanted to go fast… and being quite […]

April 16th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Amidst the ‘old London photos’ were these rather dark pictures of a absolute stunner of a car, the lustrously curved classic Jaguar XK140 roadster. Back then, I could not Photoshop them back alive. Fortunately I have learned a thing or two and the pictures aren’t actually half bad. Feast your eyes out on this beauty! […]

Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Series II CoupƩ

March 28th, 2008 · No Comments

Well, normally I would not stop to make pictures of this poorly built British Leyland product, but hey… this particular Jag with the tell-tale coupĆ© vinyl roof was shining so nicely, it just begged to be photographed. I have nothing interesting to say about the car, besides the fact that it was regarded very poorly […]

Jaguar XJS in red

March 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

When there are a number of cars on your site, you tend to start getting doubles. Normally, I would ignore those cars, but this Jag was too pretty to pass by… The silvery green one was nice, but this really is a looker! And this is a very nice car equipped with a nice engine, […]

Jaguar XJS

February 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

One of the first cars I posted here, was a XJS cabrio. Now I spot this nice coupĆ© in the city center of Rotterdam. Well, now… quite some time ago, actually. I have had a hard time dating this model. The back lights still are a mystery to me, so anyone who can help me […]

Jaguar XK-R CoupƩ Mk II

December 21st, 2007 · No Comments

Jaguar always makes noteworthy cars. They are lavishly luxurious, the lines are beautiful, and they can be very fast as well. So when you spot a Racing version of a already fast XK, you know you are in for a treat. Let’s feast on this supercharged Jag Performance, you ask? Well… you do the Googling, […]
