Ok, get the tartan blanket, Wurthers original and hat on the rear parcel shelf jokes at the ready.
I've always fancied a Jag, from the era when they still looked like Jags, so when one with what looks like relatively tidy bodywork appeared on eBay, in Sheringham I thought now is the time.
So on Saturday I'm off to fetch (from Norwich as it turns out, not Sheringham) a Dark Blue 1997 XJ 3.2 Executive. Won on eBay for the princely sum of £380. I may be slightly mad, but I figure at that price, if it's a dud it can go back on eBay in bits to make my money back.
Pics and Tales of Joy or Woe to follow shortly.... Wish me luck.
