The Jaguar XJ6 of this generation was NOT a particularly good car, at least until the mid 1990s.

That's what my sister said when her husband bought a 2011 Dodge

Jaguars-something you will probably need see so many of in the US :D

Mmm, I suppose it could be worse. What if they owned a 1970s Ford Pinto, the car made of explodium? :D

The Pinto's weren't as unsafe as all that. Besides, they were pretty durable-the US Postal Service managed to keep most of them going for a long time.

I appreciate that terrace you've drawn. It definitely makes this whole scene look British. :)

I don't know that much about cars but I gusse I would agree with Russ & Regs parents. I have yet to get a car. I'm now old enough to drive. I just better get a Bugatti Veyron... Na just kidding! Not quite rich enough! XD I just hope my first car will look ok and runs nice.

Yeah, that's a Jaguar model I'm not to fond of. I much prefer the newer ones.

Speaking of expensive cars, at one point in my life, my dad owned a 2011 Ford Shelby GT500! He upgraded the hell out of that car! Then he sold it to buy my first car. True story.

That may be true Tony. But I'm sure blowing a couple grand on a hi-fi when your wife is ripe with child falls under the same category.

I personally like the E-Type and the Mark 2 saloon 3.8.

Jags are sexy cars!

Some people just don't know how to enjoy everyone's luck. Not even Squirrel. :(

*facepalm* I've seen this all to well a guy with lots of money not knowing what he just buy and it turning out to be a bad car to own.

Sadly the mid 90's jags onwards were just fords with some extra bulk on, these days the jag is just a rebadged ford mondeo and not worth the price, too much ford gear on it now.

The Excalibur car from the 1970's and 1980's, that looked like 1930's roadsters? They were just Chevrolets underneath the window dressing.

I remember reading years ago about a Rolls Royce which turned out to be a lemon. No joke.

I've never been much into expensive automobiles. I had a "boat" for my first vehicle...a Dodge Diplomat. It was actually the former fire chief's car, and we got it at a good price.

My uncle won't drive anything other than a 1970 or 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. He thinks all of the newer vehicles are junk.

well i just have a regular car like everyone else, a 2004 Corolla Toyata car, even before chirpers were invented.

How do the neighbors know the car is theirs and not from a visitor?
