That is just awesome. I love it. How do the Jag purists react? (On the one hand it has a V8, but on the other it IS period correct.)

I get mixed reviews..mostly positive when they hear the history..and see how well all the mods were done. Things like the heel and toe pedals hung not floor mounted..large torsion bars..and thicker rear springs.. We build for ourselves..I appreciate the those that like it..and those that don't have every opportunity to build thier own !

Tim, sorry for the long delay, I didn't realize anyone posted comments or looked at my old war horse. I just now figured out that I didn't put the picture with my ride. Thanks
