    If someone would PM me, I'll upload some shots of a '53 Jag from some 4X5 negs I shot this week. I can't seem to get the hang of uploading images here.

    '41 Chevy fully restored except for paint. Flagstaff, AZ. It took the owner about 20 years with the last part taking almost 10 years to find. That was the grill which he finally found in Argentina in 2008.

    These shots were taken last Tuesday at a showroom for a company that restores vintage
    British, German and Italian cars. The whole showroom was full of primo classics with little room to move around. Sort of impromptu shoot with 4X5 to test the waters. I'll have shots of an Allard MK11 soon to show, this was a '53 Jag.

    When I was 18 years old my grandparents who I was living with went on an extended trip to Mexico with lifelong friends who left a black 1953 Jaguar 120 Drophead in the garage with instructions to start the engine once a week.

    Can you imagine anything more foolish

    I had grown up (such as that can be defined at 18) around Model A Fords, so non-sychromesh transmissions were not a problem. My memory is that the Jag had lush long gears with a motor that loved being revved. Still music in my ears 40 years later. We lived in a canyon with a 2 lane curvy road. I didn't act foolishly, but I did make it sing........just a little.

    Hmmm. I wonder now but will never know, did Mr. Keller write his mileage down before he left as a reference? And if he did was there wagering involved? The Jag was ready to go when they all returned home.
