[concours] UK ITV 'Road Show' programme on Jags

All Jag-Lovers

The UK Meridian ‘Road Show’ last night featured a reasonable length item
on a visit to the Lynx Factory at St Leonards on Sea. Worth watching the
repeat on Sunday at 17:35 for the D-Types, XKSS, lightweight E-Type
(+nice on-road sounds…), a Lister and other goodies that featured in the
programme…

I’m trying to get hold of an original studio tape (will be VHS PAL) - anyone
interested?

BTW, there are some Lynx brochures on the Brochure site now in the
1980s section

Re -dying not all that reliable or lasting or good looking after

a while
it Eventually rubs off and exposes the Original colour leaving
you with a
Really Tacky-looking Jaguar.

Just re-dye them the SAME colour they are Now and Enjoy them the

way they
Were when New … !!!

Have it done Professionally - it's not Particularly expensive

and Well
Worth it.

Keep them clean and Conditioned.  LEXOL is the Very Best

Au contraire. Lexol is an excellent preservative, but Gliptone

from British
Auto in NH is far better as a restorative and preservative.

Subject: [pub] AC & General Temperature Questions

No one in the group should be surprised that I've spent 50 of

the last 72
hours with my newly acquired '87 us/VdP. Hopefully you don’t
consider such
behavior bizarre or unusual.

Today, I took my Cat on a stroll through the streets of the Big

Apple where
she turned countless heads and prompted several “nice car”'s. I
was even
offered twice my purchase price (but as you all know, sale at
any price is not
an option). But I digress. This was the hottest day of the year
and I decided
to close the sunroof and windows to allow my AC to do its thing.
While some
reasonably cool air issued from my dash vents, a steady stream
of warm air was
blown from the vents on either side of the center console as
well as from rear
seat outlet. What would cause this? How do I correct it?

Additionally, the combination of the stop and go traffic,

incredible heat and
AC caused my coolant temperature gauge to register above 90 for
the first
time. For some reason, I became very nervous about this
development. Of
course, on page 11 the Series Three Handbook says “The normal
operating
temperature is between 85 to 125 C (between the green band).”
but at want
temperature do I have a legitimate cause for concern?

Pardon this rather elementary question, but I'm taking the crash

course in Jag
ownership and I’d rather be safe than sorry.

Serge
'87 Sage Green us/Vdp and lovin' every minute with it!

UK Jag-Lovers!

I'm going to be in Hertingfordbury on Thursday at the White

Horse Inn. So
far, John Warr and Mark Barker have tentatively agreed to meet
for drinks
and dinner. Who wants to join this merry crew?

Also meeting up with Roly Alcock in Broad Campden at the Malt

House at 7PM
on the 28th. We’re tentatively going down to the Red Lion Pub in
Chipping
Campden from there for drinks and dinner. Anyone available
there???

Would love to meet some of you and share some Jagrophobia.

Keeping me from working on the derelict (?!) SAABs and the

non-existent
Jaguar, I have had a local business site up for more than one
week. As you
are all Internet fiends (or you wouldn’t be out here, right?),
check this
out and give me some feedback. Meanwhile I’m trying to sell
advertising in
the way of small pages for local business. So far, so good.

The URL is http://www.wmsbrg.com

If you live in a faraway place and feel like doing a good deed,

add the
site to a local search engine which I might not have access to
here in the
States. I update the news daily and the Editor’s corner weekly
(for now -
still making improvements and designing a facelift - already!).

Thanks.

SORRY - but no one (I) know who owns a Jaguar has Ever heard of
"Gliptone" whatever.

First I've ever heard of it in the periods of 1958 when I bought

my first
XK120 Jaguar Coupe until now - 1998 and my latest XJ-S & others
inbetween.

I guess I'd Have to say that - Really - the Very Best

Preservative
Anywhere Is/Was/Continues to be Pure Homogenized Neatsfoot Oil -
made by
Sheps in Omaha, Nebraska - Above ALL Others - for ALL leathers
but I
wouldn’t want to Sit on it in my Jaguar.

"Repeat Twice A Year For Best Results!" 

SO -  for Sitting on Plus - I Still recommend LEXOL..!

Subject: [pub] Re: Ford Vs Jaguar

Hi,

I wonder at times if people actually read what's posted to this

list…
Every time this debate comes up (which it does regularly) we get
a whole
load of subjective twaddle and very little fact. The few facts
(i.e.
quantifiable, verifiable statements) that do surface amongst the
opinion
have all been on the lines of the many DIFFERENCES between the
Lincoln and
the Jaguar and the INDEPENDENCE of the Jaguar factory. I think
it’s BJ
Crop (sp) who actually worked on the cars, and knows more than
anyone who
hasn’t, the differences in the actual cars and the factories
philosophy. He
has posted to this list many times about this.

Obviously people are entitled to their own opinion (and this is

mine) but an
opinion that ignores the quantifiable, verifiable facts is not
much of an
opinion (in my opinion :-). I find it sad that most people on
this list seem
to have completely diss’d the new Jag before we have even seen
it in the
flesh. As someone said, it’s no use comparing modern cars with
old classics
such as the original S-type - too many things, i.e. everything,
about car
manufacturing, marketing, buying, driving have changed for any
viable
comparison to be made.

The days of the independent car manufacturer are severely

numbered -
economics has seen to that. All the major car manufacturers are
consolidating, both in terms of models and even companies. This
should not
deprive us, the consumer, of “good” cars - whatever your
definition of
“good” is. It just means that many models from different
manufacturers will
share some of these “good” features.

Regards,
David

Subject: [pub] Y2K compliance...NO JAG CONTENT

I was just ordered by the administration to test my computer for

Y2K
compliance. For those who have been living in a cave for the
past 5 years,
that is compliance with the date rool over coming at the end of
the century.

My response to the administration was that my computer was less

than a year
old and I doubted it was necessary to test it because after all,
this
problem has been talked about liberaly for the past 5 years.

Well, I was partialy right in making that assumption.  Partialy

right in
assuming there was intelegence behind the corporate veil.

Not that it matters, but I went ahead and said, "Lets test it

for year 2100
compliance." Good God, they dont learn a thing.

When you are taking the time to make the computer compliant to

the 2000
century roll over, why not make it compliant period? There is
no extra
effort required. But quess what I found? Entering any date
after 2099
results in an “Invalid Date” message.

I assume that my computer probably wont be still being used in

2099, but
what the hell, dont they learn anything about making
assumptions?

I guess we will have to go through this whole mess again only

this time it
will be called Y21K Compliance.
