Your Projects: $100 for a V12

Driving an old British car with a V12 is awesome. Owning and maintaining an old British car with a V12? Not so much.

That hasn't stopped forum user garethashenden, though. He finally got his hands on a 1987 British Racing Green Jaguar XJS V12 for only $100.

Before the car was parked in 2000, the previous owner reported that the XJS was running rough. Now, of course, the car doesn't run at all.

The first step, then, is to get the XJS running. We're going to keep an eye on this project, because who doesn't love a big old V12?

All electronics gone. And a couple garage sale megasquirts to run the banks. Then turbo until crazy things happen.
