KingCast presents: A word about Jaguars.
The new Jaguar XK is out of control; right off the damn hiz-ook. Maybe they have fixed the Lucas Electronic reliability issues, part Jaguar's fault anyway because Lucas built-to-spec. Of course, for the price of a small bungalow in Cleveland one would hope that they could engineer a sweet ride, even if it is not as pretty as an Aston Martin. My fave Jaguars, however, were the D-Type racer and the XK with the funky hatch door. What a beautiful car; it gots a nice arse. Anyway, when my friend's father (the one flippin' the bird) flipped us the keys to a late 80's XJ6 for one of my sisters' weddings -- in 1990 mind you -- my girlfriend and I hopped in, grabbed mom and pop, and the goddamned thing temporarily didn't start! Seriously.
