Hi ADW,

Good choice of kit, but then I would say that wouldn't I.

Did we meet briefly at Stoneleigh on the Sunday with KevinW?

You can always find cheap Jags on Ebay, but I suppose your location makes it a little difficult.

Regards Ian

Ah - so you did it. :mrgreen:

Feel free to ask for help, you are far enough North that you deserve it.

Good to meet you at Stoneliegh, so glad to see you are going for it.

Ian, Unfortunatly we did not meet up on the Sunday I was on the Land Rover Heritage Run. Got to Stoneleigh on Monday, talked to Wilf and Ken R. Seeing their Crendons made my mind up, had been wavering everso slightly towards another AK.

Regards, Tony

Hi Paul,

Yes a V12 widens the search a bit. Really need the full Jag to avoid a 'Q' plate, when my old AK was built in '96 things were much easier, no SVA/IVA and as long as you had the Jag V5 you 99.9% of the time kept the donor reg no.

I am about to buy a twin axle trailer with just enough capacity to take a completed Cob, don't really want to buy one big enough for a Jag just for one trip. If I still lived in Rugby finding a Jag and hauling it home on a hired trailer would be no problem.

Regards, Tony
