Photo of a 2001 Jaguar XJ8L (BC (Big Cat))

No longer owned


My daily driver...

I just turned over 65,000 miles on the odometer. Never thought I'd own a "Ford", but I have to admit, it's been a great car.

Rides like a cruise ship and there's enough room in the back seat for two pony kegs and three friends.

UPDATE: August 17, 2012: While overnight and sitting outside (unknwn to me) at the Jaguar dealer for a routine state inspection, the car was totaled in a hailstorm.
