Other money pits

Post #1 by sunnbobb » Tue Dec 19, 2017 3:27 am

Since this new forum is open, I thought I'd share one of my money pits...

Good looking car. Great body style. I should have bought my father-in-law's XJ6 when I had the chance. 40k miles and a cream puff. Too late now.

Now I have to figure out how to get all the bikes out of the garage so I can take care of a few minor things on the jag. She has 144K on her, one owner. Should last me until I hit the dirt. Playing with the idea of a trailer hitch to tow bikes with. 245 HP should be enough.. :). Surprisingly it gets 23 mpg.

One wiper? Well must be much easier than my old XKE to work on. I always thought is was unnecessarily complicated with 3. As a lifelong glutton for punishment I have a Black on Black 1965 3 carb. 4.2 Mark X sitting next to my 1957 Supercharged Studebaker Golden Hawk. Tried to collect some of the best equipment from my life timeline. The 1977 GL1000 fit right in! Always wanted one from 1976 when I rode one for the first time. Just finished restoring it and have not ridden it yet.
