Out and about two days running (in every sense of the word). Well it, i.e., the XJS, along with the XJ8, the MGB and the Nissan Quest, all needed to be registered prior to month end. Plus the XJS needed some petrol. For those of you who have never owned a Jaguar, Jaguars run on PETROL, not gas. Got that. This was at the Town Hall.

They are all registered. You can actually see the bright green 2018 decal on the number plate. Next step — having them inspected. In the case of the Jags that will be Wednesday.

My Jaguar XJS V-12 (1989) Gets A Rare Outing.

I have NOT driven it much at all this year. I have, of course, been using my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 — though not that much either.

It is that time of the year. Both Jags and the MGB need to be registered by October 1 — which also means, in New Hampshire, that I have to get them inspected. So, I thought I should stretch the XJS’ legs prior to taking it to ‘Paul’ at B-Boys, in Barnstead, on Wednesday. It is a fun car to drive.

New Hampshire 2017 Topless Season Started Today, April 27.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



April is coming to an end, and the 1969 MGB, with its antique plate, is due for its bi-annual inspection. [For those of you are not familiar with the NH ‘Antique Number Plates’ for vehicles over 20 years old, they only need to be inspected every other year — but ALL inspections have to be done by May of that year. Kind of cute. This is to ensure that these cars don’t have to be driven during the winter just so that you can get them to a garage for inspection. So they give you till the end of April.]

I have an appointment with ‘B-Boys‘ in Barnstead, on Friday, April 28, 2017 for the inspection. So had to make sure it would start etc. It did start, with the aid of a jumper (our our Nissan Quest) after some cajoling. Always amazes me that it starts after the long winter hibernation.

The XJS also needed a jump to get it going. Took it for a long ride (35 minutes) TOPLESS. It was good. But, I had Devanee follow me, all the way, in the van — just in case! That is NOT good.

But, topless season, in New Hampshire, is now officially started.

The New Hampshire Squadron Of The “British Fleet” Was Out Again Yesterday.

by Anura Guruge


Taken by Deanna with her Olympus SZ-16.


The oldest, BUT the junior member of this squadron, the one that gets the least exposure to the Sun.


As far as I can remember this was ONLY the 2nd time the whole fleet was out during the Summer of 2016.

Kind of a shame. But knew that that would be the case when we got the Jaguar XJS. That serves as the convertible.

I really must make an effort to get the MGB out.

It also shows, possibly embarrassingly (though it doesn’t really embarrass me), that we are now a 5 car family — all 5 cars, registered, insured and ready to drive.

Our 1968 ‘BRG’ MGB Sporting Its New 1968 NH Scenic Number Plate.

by Anura Guruge


Taken by Deanna on her ASUS phone. I am currently camera-less


A cute, ‘value-added’ feature of New Hampshire’s car licensing — when it comes to “Antique Plates“. IF your car is qualified to have “Antique Plates”, and you indeed do have them, THEN IF you can find a NH number plate corresponding to the year of your car you can put that plate (or plates) on your car in place of the “Antique Plates”. We were told this, in detail, last September, when we got around to registering our 1968 ‘British Racing Green’ (BRG) MGB as an antique — which it is.

In October 2015 I bought the above plate, from eBay, for Devanee’s birthday. That they were a matching green and had ‘3’, ‘6’ & ‘9’ was a bonus — those being some of my favorite numbers. 

It took us till TODAY to finally get it mounted on the MGB. Part of the delay was that you have to go to DMV in Concord, NH with the new plate, an old plate and your registration and have the ‘year plate’ (e.g., 1968 plate) registered.

I couldn’t find TWO 1968 plates. I should look again. Of course, I am in the market. IF you have have two 1968 NH plates PLEASE contact me.

It is cool. Took the MGB out for a fairly long spin. Did good. We like it.
