There's a Black 1964 XKE 2+2 in the garage,next to the TR6!
Such beautiful lines - I stared at the car for awhile,admiring
it.
We had a group from the Redding (CA) British Car Club come
over to our area Satuday.The E Type lost a water pump,& was
put in the garage,next to the lowly TR6.
It's interesting,looking at the cars side by side - the
Jag is SOOO sensual,& the TR is a Great design.
I just looked at the car.BUT - I had the keys....
......it was soo hard not to sit in it,open the hood,& explore the car.How many opportunities like that ever come your way?
The owner's coming over with a trailer tommorrow to pick
it up.
And to think that I was thanked for storing it?
How fortunate am I?

I think I may have offered to do the water pump R&R. :wink:

That sound's cool, but it's probably a 1966 E-Type if it's a 2+2 as that's when the 2+2 was introduced.

I HATE storing nice stuff, ESPECIALLY if it's not mine. Too many things can go wrong and..oooops, that's gonna leave a mark. I need better and bigger space here.

It's Google and then copied

I couldn't get any good pictures without moving the Jag.
Also - the owner inherited it from his Dad,who was also an-
SR71 Blackbird pilot.There's an SR71 decal on the rear hatch
window.
It was either let him store it there,or park it on the street.
I'd hate to see it vandalized.It was so cool walking into the
garage,& seeing the E Type where the MGB GT usually sits.
He picked it up this morning,& my camera was full.
