About “Ruby”

This is my wife's car. When it became possible for us to upgrade from the older cars we had up to that point back in 2007, we went for what were our "Dream Cars". I got my Jag XK8-R and my wife got her ruby red big Jaguar sedan. The Vanden Plas is the high-line model, and the LWB stands for long wheelbase so there's plenty of room in the back seat. We got the Range Rover as a "Family Truckster" sort of thing. I had wanted one of them since they first came over to America, and I finally got my chance. Anyhow, she loves her Jag as much as I love mine. (The Range Rover doesn't leave the garage nearly as often as I thought it would!)

About “Merc 4x4”

Well this is a long story but I'll try to keep it simple. My wife got sick a few years back and the quality of her life has for ever changed. One time we went to the hospital for a visit and we asked the DR what the long term prognosis was. His response was that we should not worry about what the future holds and enjoy everyday together. Well my wife and I talked about it and she wondered about not knowing if she be around for retirement. So I asked her what see look forward to the most about retirement, and she said. "I always look foward to having a new gramma mobile to drive to bingo" Well thats all I needed to here. I told her to go pick out what ever she want and promptly took the money out of my 401K, figuring it was hers as well. And here's the by product.
