Got the opportunity to take out a pair of beautiful Jags out today for some exercise, which made for a great Thursday.  The sound of the carb’d inline 6 was a welcome treat, and the cars just feel so cool.  The first car out of the stable was a 1954 XK120.  I’ll just let these two videos do the talking.

The second car out was a 1963 e-type.  This is the highly sought after “serries 1” e-type, with glass covered headlights.  It has an amazing dash, something not seen on many modern cars.  This one is complete with Nardi wood steering wheel.  Nothing like grippin’ grain while switchin’ lanes!

Step one of the exercise was to fuel up the beast.  In preparation for the longer storage time of winter, its important to fill the tanks, and try to stabilize the fuel as much as possible to keep the carbs alive for the following season.  This of course required the obligatory “gas station shot”.

Soon Terry and I set off on our drive.  The country roads of northwest ohio arent the best when it comes to fun, but we were both enjoying ourselves.

Here is a video of the e-type on the on-ramp.  Such a great sound!!!

Thats all for today!  A great break from what I thought was going to be the winter blues.  Now I have some inspiration to keep me going when the snow starts flying.
