My 1999 Jaguar XJ8

And so, with my Jaguar no longer in the picture it seems appropriate to now draw the curtain on Jeeves and the Jaguar as well. I've had a great time sharing pop culture, some random tips, my maintenance updates, and images from my road trips. Despite the unexpected ending that met my Jaguar when the transmission went, I thought it would be better for the last post on this site to be a positive one.  




Like I've said many times before, the headaches I had with this car were always outweighed by the positives. The regular compliments I received about the immaculate state of my Jaguar, and the things I continued to learn while maintaining her became a great source of pride. I don't regret my decision to take a chance on a vehicle that I knew would be demanding and expensive, and I stand by what I first wrote when I launched this site on the one year anniversary of purchasing this car. If anything, my XJ8 provided me with stories, new experiences, and opportunities to indulge in the fascination I've had with cars since I was a kid.

With all of this in mind, I wanted to share some of my favorite images that I shot of my 1999 Jaguar XJ8 (along with a collage of the 300+ posts I made on this site) to bring this project to a close. The future is uncertain, and I wouldn't be surprised if one day I'm a Jaguar owner again. Until that time however, this leg of the journey ends here. Thank you all for keeping me company along the ride.
