VIBES Gourmet Burgers” is part owned by a very good friend of ours from Gilford. Quite literally the ‘salt of the earth’. We haven’t been to Concord, atypically, in ages, so we have not had a chance as yet to try this place out. We have heard rave reviews. At a 50% discount these Burgers are at Wendy’s prices. How can YOU lose? I am dying to go and take some pictures. I really need to get out more! But please go and try them out. Cheers. If you see a General Manager named ‘Gary‘ tell him that the brown guy sent you.

This, now that I think about it, would be a GREAT PLACE for the New Hampshire Primary crowd.

Robert Gilbert, born in Australia and the owner of a nifty Mini Cooper, is a friend from “Great Waters“. Like I he is a volunteer stagehand and his wife ushers along with Deanna and Devanee. Robert and I, as owners of British cars (and I won’t mention the other cars he loves and owns), often chat about cars. While doing the setup for the “Glenn Miller Orchestra” on Friday, he told me, when I asked him what he had been up to since I last saw him a week ago, that he had been to the “Simeone Auto Museum” in Philadelphia. He appeared to be a bit disappointed that I did not know about it. Later on in the evening I did realize that I had indeed heard about it — on an episode of “American Pickers” that we used to watch religiously until we got our Roku 3 and discovered the manifolds treats available via ‘Amazon Prime‘ such as “Downton Abbey” and “Mr. Selfridge“.

This morning Robert, who used to do mechanical instrumentation for nuclear plants and appears to be a gentleman of many talents, sent me a whole set of delightful pictures he had taken at ‘Simeone’. With his permission I am going to share some with YOU for your enjoyment and edification. Thank you, Robert. CLICK TO ENLARGE.

I guess I have known about ‘Jagbits’ for some time now — even ahead of getting my first Jaguar, the burgundy red XJ8 from (eBay) “European-Cars“.

I had called them up when I was looking for XJ8s asking about parts for the moonroof because I had found a red XJ8L in Maine with an unretractable moonroof. ‘Gary’ was very helpful.

Then when I got an XJS, ‘Dewey’ the owner, a hardcore enthusiast who did a lot of the work on it himself, sent me a long e-mail with a list of repairs I should get done — money and time permitting. Against each one he had a link to the parts I would need. Each link went to Jagbits!

Last week I ordered the first two parts: a transmission mount kit and a subframe mount for the rear suspension. I was told just to get a bushing for the transmission. It was $17 at Jagbits. I have been around the block enough to know that that didn’t seem right. I called Jagbits. Got Gary again (and I have since learned that his full name is ‘Gary Ilcyn’.) I explained what I was looking for. He knew right away what I was talking about. He told me that they sold a kit with a spring and other stuff — all of which should be replaced if you were taking it all apart for the bushing. That made sense. They were offering free shipping of orders more than $125. So I went ahead and ordered the 2nd item on the e-mail. So I now got free shipping.

I had the parts, FedEx, within 2 days. Excellent service.

I am hooked. I don’t see a need to go anywhere else for my Jag bits. I am sold on Jagbits.

So this is a wholehearted ENDORSEMENT of Jagbits and Gary Ilcyn by a very committed Jag nut (who even owns shares in Tata Motors the owners of Jags).

SMILE.
