Yes…Jag-Lovers must keep the XJ40 category…The XJ40 was considered a new-generation saloon and is completely different from the Series I, II and III XJ6 models. Further, from a historic standpoint, the XJ40 is the last design Sir William Lyons had input to and the 1988-1989 model were the last Jaguars built prior to the company being sold to Ford Motor Company. The only thing newer Jaguar saloons share with the XJ40 is the basic body shape…and even that evolved into the more recent cars which look nothing like the XJ40, X300, X308, etc. Just my dime’s worth.

This post from 2016. “*Eight years ago.” is of more importance now than then. And with sufficient time to ponder a response, I’d say I’m bloody glad you did keep it.
it’s not easy keeping any 35year old car in running order.
but working on a jag, can sometimes be like trying to work with only one leg, one arm, & one eye.

the XJ40 is unique, to start with being designed & manufactured by British then later by American engineers the difference is noticeable.

I’d like you to consider replacing the Sub category name Saloons with XJ40.
and thats my two cents worth.
