After 26 years of dreaming, wishing, hoping, drooling even, I finally managed to get myself a Jaguar XJ12- well, almost. It's actually a Daimler Double-Six, which is a badge-engineered XJ-12 with slightly better trim.

Update 2005- petrol prices finally got the better of my wallet- the Daimler has gone, replaced by a new Honda Jazz- 12 mile per gallon to 60 miles per gallon!!!

For reasons only Jaguar know, this colour is called "Fern Grey"!

 

Club meetings are 1st Monday of the month, at the Masonic Club, 181 Macquarie St. Hobart., 7:30pm
Club e-mail address:- jaguar_tas@yahoo.com

This is the early v-12 from an E-type, on the XJ's the alternator and coil are in a different place and the sump is quite different, but otherwise this is the same engine.
