Good afternoon! I am looking at a 120 that is located in Dallas, but am personally located on the east coast and not sure I can visit the car in person. Can anyone recommend a knowledgable person in the area that could do a PPI? Thanks for your help
Charles. That’s your neck of the woods as I recall. I still remember our visit.
I would contact the JCNA chapter that includes Dallas, and ask one of their club officers to solicit a recommendation for you from their club’s xk expert.
Pat… Yes, I recall your visit, as well… Good Times & Great Conversation…
With respect to “Dallas”… That place (as well as the Ft. Worth area) has
“over-populated” so much that the once “Thirty minute drive” on the DFW
Turnpike has turned into a “Two Hour Ordeal” (lotsa wrecks!!) From my place
in Johnson County, it now takes OVER two hours just to get to the west side
of Dallas!! (formerly a forty-five minute drive… in my '62 Volvo 122S!)
When I saw the post asking for someone to inspect an XK120 in Dallas, I
gave it a serious thought… BUT (there is always a “but”!)… I’m still “recovering”
from (left) Knee Replacement Surgery, I MUST wear a knee brace to walk and
long-term sitting (driving) causes said knee to stiffen up. PLUS, Carolyn JUST
had her right Hip Replaced on Sept. 29th… She is in a “Rehab Unit” getting physical therapy. The facility is on “visitor lock-out” because Tarrant County is running a 15%
COVID-19 Infection Rate!! I cannot even go to visit Carolyn!! (she has been in the rehab unit for a dozen days!!) Tarrant County’s “infection rate” MUST drop ALL the way down to… wait for it… Eleven Per Cent before the facility will reopen to family visitors!!

Good that the two of you are on the road to recovery. That area has really changed since we lived there in the 70s. I think I remember the Volvo. It was in the shed with your 120. I had to sell the XK8 I was driving …my second Jaguar with failed Nikosil cylinder lining. Have you made progress on the XK120?
