I thought I start this topic because it’s somewhat an anniversary for me. My car was made in 3/1994. I bought it in 3/2007 when it was 13 years old and I was 29. I payed around $6,200 back then. Now in 3/2020 I can say I’m the longest owner in my car’s life. I went through a lot fixing and maintaining it. The biggest job was definitely the head gasket replacement in Sept. 2009. It had 96000 miles when the head gasket blew at cyl. #2. Right now the most important jobs would be the new sub frame bushings, engine mounts and a paint job. The transmission is not perfect but I can make it shift pretty smoothly and the diff. also needs some attention but it’s not an emergency.
The reason I still have this car is because I’m still attached to it emotionally. That was the main reason I bought an XJ40.
I wonder if there’s a person who bought an XJ40 new and still owns it.
Happy motoring everyone!
