    so, bit disapointing, 12mins x 8 = 96 mins running time, so its really about 3 x 1/2 hr episodes, perhaps 4 with adverts.
    No idea why they have used such an odd format.

    A chap who used to come into the pub where I worked used to have one of those, had the registration XK 55 would you believe. A great looking and sounding car and much rarer than a D-type.

    LR roadsters (RAM cobra) also made an XKSS replica based on the same Reynard chassis but I've never seen one other than their demo car.
    Cheers

    I was thinking about that Myles......

    If I was in the market for another project, the XKSS might be on my list. This is where LR Roadsters resides now.......

    Saw their (well, LR) D-Type replica at Harpenden yesterday - as beautiful as the day it was born.



    (Also a number of other cars I would happily covet! Many E-types, many many Mustangs, beautiful 50s trucks etc. Good afternoon out for the princely sum of a £2 donation to the Harpenden Rotary)

    I know the young man who helped assemble the car, he worked opposite me for a while.
    Amazing how much outsourcing has been done on this car, especially with Jaguar having set up their own restoration shop.
    As for the build, I think they need a few tips on build procedure, trial fit everything before paint!, we all know that
