GENERATION XJ
The Jaguar XJ was born in 1968 and having clocked up almost half a century, the model is in better shape than ever.

In this infographic https://blog.swanswaygarages.com/just-what-is-jaguar-xj/ Swansway Jaguar look back at the original XJ and see how it compares with the XJ of today.
From the original XJ’s optional radio, to today’s touch sensitive multi-function entertainment system, there’s much to admire and much that has changed.

For lovers of the big cat this is a must https://blog.swanswaygarages.com/just-what-is-jaguar-xj/

That brings back memories of my Dad's 1972 Daimler Double Six. That thing could guzzle fuel at an alarming rate! 12mpg was pretty normal but it could go a lot lower over 100mph

Around 1973(ish) I had a 1970 Daimler Sovereign 4.2, great car it was, went to Spain in it.......TWICE!


This was taken somewhere South of Barcelona, poor pic, scan of a slide:

Don't get me wrong, the XJ is nice; I just find it about 125mm too short.
I sat next to an old xj a while back in the carpark of supermarket, think it was a x358 or x350 all look the same, but how small it was compared to the newer xj especially in height :eek:

Point of correction. Morse never drove an XJ, he drove a Mark 2, the precursor to the XJ.
