Not selling the A99 perchance?
No such plans at the moment but thanks all the same. Had it twenty years years now which is horrifying in its own way.

So what's happening to the 11 cylinder Jag?

Weren't you trying to find storage at one time?
I did find storage - same place as before up at Jenner Towers just north of Berwick. Rob Jenner has it parked (in a bubble i think) at one of his storage sheds alongside his many 12's and Majestics. I would fetch it back, but I have no real idea where I am going to settle for the next few years. If this Swiss thing turns into a long term project, then I will move to a more suitable house here in UK (Aarberg is commutable), and get it home.

The last time I ever saw it:

Yup, the 5993cc one. One of the plugs hasn’t been changed since about 1993 as no-one can be arsed to wrestle with it.

Is there anything more gentlemanly than a V12 at full tilt?

Had the Pennant many years and intend to keep forever. No issues with it. It's my only car that has the luxury of dry storage currently. Road legal. The Wolseley is now solid and for sale.

The Renault 16 is now solid and painted but not brilliantly. Needs some reassembly and dry storage ideally but would sell at the right price and replace it with an original and solid left hooker. There will always be an R16 shaped place in my life

Heirloom 306. Engine back together. Think I got the timing 180 out. Will try again at some point but not yet. 282,000 not out.

Accidentally bought this too. Minor accident damage. Bent strut and trailing arm. Now fixed and should be for sale really but not looking forward to dealing with the plebs...

No pictures but I have a late 306 cabrio laid up and SORNED. Needs clutch and windscreen. Have promised my other half that I will get it on the road when she completes her degree. l

Weighed in my previous X Trail that threw a rod.

Oh and I still have my mother's old Almera. She had it 18 years or so and never once went wrong. After it was replaced I drove it back to my place to lay it up and it flung the fanbelt. Will keep it indefinitely.
