Same car as yesterday's shot, but a more unique and stylish angle. They just don't make them like they used to!

Yup, the car was designed with scrummy photography in mind. What really makes me laugh is when nouveau jag owners put the prancing cat on modern versions. It just don't work.

@John Leech: Or putting the square bumbers from the MKII 3.8 litre manual overdrive on their 340s or 240s to make it look more powerful than it actuall is... ; )

@hugo poon: Thanks Hugo. 1 more shot of it to come, then I'll move on to some other nice old cars to complete the series.

Very very nicely done Ian. This could be straight from the pages of a glossy car magazine or a Pirelli calendar (minus the bikini babes, sadly). Next time?

@Stu: Now that's a career move for me - but not sure my wife would be so keen (but sure to change her mind once the pay cheques start coming in...!) : ) Thanks for your kind comments.
