Theme Tuesdays: Jaguars

2

My mother, who is not a car person by any means, has always had a thing for Jaguars. My father, who is what we can say now a dormant car guy, always swore them off is unreliable and expensive to operate.

I, (outside of the e type which everyone loves) have never really had much of an opinion about them one way or another. Visually I like some, and I get a kick out of seeing them race, but I don’t think I’ve ever been in one nor am I inclined to ever want to own one.

However I’ve dedicated many a Theme Tuesday to cars I’ve never been in, and probably won’t ever own, so what’s one more?

I have unfortunately never seen this car and its eccentric pilots on the road course again, shame as it was cool to see out there

This car was the topic of a WTF Friday many moons ago

Something so wrong it is right about it
This 81 Jag XJS was hands down my favorite car of the show, I've never seen a race prepped Jag before
This 81 Jag XJS from the auto show a few years ago, beautiful functional car

No doubt many purists still screaming over this one

…this one too for that matter (which has been blended with an e30)

Here’s a more standard edition for a local cruise-in
Jags of this vintage are pretty sick because you don't have to do a thing to them..
And another from an even earlier cruise-in

This is such a clean car, I think it is bagged too if I am not mistaken

Anyone who dips in and out of the Stance Works forums has likely seen this car

Not exactly sure the method of paint used on this car but it is pretty unique

‘J-Complete’ out of Japan is basically running things when it comes to VIP Jaguars

All of their builds are well done really…

…but this is probably my favourite, it’s an old photo and old build but it’s still pretty impactful

This Liberty VIP car was one of my favourite North American Jaguar XJ builds but sadly it’s cruising in the sky now after a particularly bad bottom out

Going to close things out with a car I’ve been hoping to see more of since the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year

Dino at Speedhunters teased at an upcoming feature so fingers crossed!

  1. I love that weird drip-like paint style. Really curious as to how that effect is achieved. Looks mad with the matching wheels too!
