    Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

    Janet has a new toy. And I have a couple of MGBs that will be needing a new home.

    After much deliberation and see-sawing, we decided to look for a car that we can both drive and enjoy. I restored the '73 B several years ago for Janet, but she's only driven it a couple of times. Way back when, she drove manual transmissions, but has gotten "lazy" and spoiled with automatics. So, we started talking about finding something she'd like, and the XK was tops on her list.

    We found this one locally, an '03 model, and at first thought it was really too good to be true. But true it is! Less than 17,000 miles on it, and absolutely pristine. Owned by an elderly couple who bought it in '05 with 4500 miles on it back then. A two-owner car, and the second owner put less than 13,000 miles on it in 14 years.

    So, the '73 Black Tulip convertible will be on the market soon, as well as my '69 GT V6 conversion. Not a decision made in haste - I have really enjoyed building these two cars and driving them - especially the GT! But I now have the TF replica to play with, and the XK8 is one fantastic machine!
