Well I have gone and done it now.. while GTO racing just delivered the bearing I needed this week to complete my 1 piece main shaft changeover in my UN1 to make progress forward, now one step back..
I sold my BRG 1987 XJ6 due to divorce in 2006. Fast forward they guy that owns it contacted me last month and it has been sitting in his garage for 8 years not running. His wife has a new Lexus that will be delivered in the next week or so. She apparently wants to garage keep it and the Jag sits in the middle of the garage. Went to see her a couple of week ago when I went to drive the pace car for my old vintage club at COTA in Austin. Her clear coat has seen better days, one door has a large ding from an errant reversing driver, the leather and wood is dry and cracked. However only 96k miles and I sold it at 85k miles. She was a great smooth runner. I had rebuilt the rear suspension, done a lot of fuel injection service. The next owner had the front suspension rebushed.
It was either to the scrapper or I come get it and tow it home. So a 4 wheel trailer is rented for Saturday morning and I am off to rescue her.
I may have a car disorder. In all fairness, my girlfriend last week came home with a new Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2 door last week cause she has wanted one for 1.5years and she makes her own money...... and the Jag is free except for gas and trailer rental...well maybe paint, some fuel hose, fluid changes and lots of elbow grease.
Some one help me please stop this affliction...
