Hello Laurence,

Thanks for the welcome.

I have always enjoyed driving soft tops and have previously owned a 1973 Triumph Stag, 1977 Mercedes 450SL and a 1979 MGB.  I had the pleasure of having a test drive in a Jaguar XJ-SC about 3 years.  Unfortunately the owner took it off the market and I missed out on that one.  But it did spark an interest!  I have been keeping an eye on sales here in Australia and following your site along with a couple of others just to give me a bit more of an insight into the XJS.  I recently found what I was after, a very well maintained 1987 XJ-SC with a 5 speed manual conversion.  I haven’t had it for long but so far have found it to be a superb vehicle to drive.

I have been lurking in the background watching various discussions/threads maybe now I will have the opportunity to contribute.
