I have a little observation which I’ve been observing (!!)
since I bought the Daimler ( alittle over a year ago), being
my first Jag.
It involves my kids, two boys aged 8 and 10 years, in
particular the youngest. Now, this might seem trivial to
alot of you, but it’s something that I have noticed.
I’ve noticed the boys really do share my passion of Jaguar.
They can spot one a mile off, whatever the model. They love
to look through my Jag and car mags. And the little fella
begs me to let him wash the cars, for free! They even love
to go for a drive in them, either one, where as before a
drive was a waste of time to them.
My youngest helped me wash the SIII yesterday. After
hassling me about it since breakfast, I relented later in
the afternoon. He calls it ‘chalk’ because it’s white and
while washing it he actually spoke to the car and petted it
like, well, a pet! It was quite amusing. I had to go buy
more sponges so we all had one.
Another funny thing is they where never really into other
cars B.J.(before jags), and the first one they saw up close,
a cranberry '86 SIII VDP, they flipped over it.
It’s not as if they live and breath the marque either, like
me, 'cos I only have them on weekends.
So, anyone else experienced a similar phenomenon with their
kids, or younger relatives? I’d love to know. And please, no
Child Psych evaluations.
