"Only thing to make this a better picture is if that Harvard were a Spitfire. Like this one, which is the one my Grandfather flew in WWII.... That's Marion below - a Mk Vb Spitfire BL628 YOD flown by my Grandfather.

Hello Phillip and welcome to My Jaguar Life! I would have welcomed you sooner, but I've been away for a few days. It's nice to have another member from the Ottawa area. It would appear that you're the nuttiest of them all, lol! That's a fantastic collection you have. I absolutely love the XK's. I would love to purchase one down the road for my wife. She would look absolutely fantastic driving down the road in one of those.
If there is anything I can help you out with on the site please don't hesitate to ask. If you have any suggestions for the site, I'd love to hear them - I'm trying to make this the best Jaguar site on the net - shy of jaguar.com of course! If you know of any fellow Jaguar owner's and enthusiasts, make sure to send them an invite. The strength of a site like ours is in it's members.
Anyways, I hope the snow hasn't hit you yet in Ottawa. We'll see you in the site!
I was born in 1956, so was bit young to be allowed to see Clockwork Orange when it came out - although I watched it when I was at university a few years later. It is really nice to know the car still lives! The sort of car you feel sure has been left to lanquish in some barn, with the other props, at the end of the shoot.
The cars in your collection that really attract me the most, are theXK120's and the 1962 Mk II 3.8 Those 3 cars represent, to me, the essence of Jaguar in those two decades, and embody the real traditional craftsmanship that was very much evident still in the company in every vehicle that left the gates of the factory. I think I have envy now... lol
The Adams Probe was built by Marcos, wasn't it? Or am I getting mixed up... ? Designed by them perhaps? You have the last 2 in existence - good man for looking after them. And a TVR (crazy, wonderful machine the Vixen - a real 'bad boy' car) . Really love your taste in the unusual.
