I was CRUSHED!

It HURT!

How could they do this to US? How could they do this to ME?

Drive up in an ugly, black KRAUT wagon. WTF!

Beautiful, majestic British cars everywhere else Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Damilers, Jaguars …

And then this DISGUSTING German monstrosity.

Harry …. What were YOU thinking with?

I will NOT dredge up their German antecedents. We are beyond that.

But, why … oh, WHY?

You have enough Bentley’s in the family.

This was, to I, the LOW point of the day.

I really was crushed. I had to have a swig of wine to regain my composure.

I hate German bloody cars.

I love British cars.


This was CLASS.

British PRIDE.

We have Bentley’s and they don’t get ANY BETTER than that.

Queen’s Bentley.

Prince Harry’s Electric-Blue, Electric Jaguar E-Type Is A ‘Real’ Jag — Albeit A Concept.

I had NOT heard of this concept car, which had been unveiled in 2017. I guess it didn’t get much shrift in the U.S.

So, when I first saw it in the news — and read about it in the media — I thought it was a cruel ‘modification’.

I am kind of glad I am wrong. It is nominally a Jaguar and for that I am so happy. I, as you know, am a Jaguar lover and purists — and own two; a 2002 XJ8 and a 1989 XJS V-12 convertible (below).

So, anything that violates the proud Jaguar legacy does not sit well with I.

But, this was OK. I am happy.

It is a REAL Jaguar.

Now that we yet again have, after over a decade hiatus, a British car — the Green 1968 MGB — we had no choice but to join the “British Cars of New Hampshire” club.

They were no strangers to us as we have been to a number of their shows — most recently the “Show of Dreams” in 2013, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

A number of the members had also been extremely helpful to me when I posted on “The MG Experience” forum. They urged me to join — though in reality no urging was required per se. I always intended to join. Now we have — and by we I mean Devanee & I, since the MGB is going to be Devanee’s car and she plans to start driving it in about 10 months. 

Another British car seems to be in our future. I have already started making phone calls about handing in our leased KIA Sportage in May — a month ahead of its lease end. Appears that that is permitted. I can return it any time after May 28, though the lease doesn’t end till June 27 (Deanna’s birthday). No, no … not a question of miles. It is a 36,000 lease and it hasn’t even done 30,000 yet. Doubt whether we can put 7,000 in the next 4 weeks. I just had it with KIA. Just want to see the back of it and get a British car.

The next British car will more than likely be an OLD Jaguar. Inexplicably I have never owned a Jag. How could that be. Yes, I came within 90% of owning an E-Type in 2001 — but that was when I lived a different life. E-Type are now beyond my dreams. Over the years I have owned (or had given to me as company cars) Triumphs (x4), Rover (x2) and MGs (x2) but never a Jag. Going to rectify that. Stay tuned.
