WASP 101 Car of The Moment: 1959 Jaguar MK2
First, let me say, this blog will not become a peep show displaying cars, women, and tobacco around the clock. Apparently, I am suffering from an early mid-life crisis :) Regardless, I will get back to the WASPy clothes next week, but occasional distractions are pleasant in some circumstances.
Without question, Jaguars are my favorite model of car, and the 1959-67 Jaguar MK2 might just be may favorite model slightly edging the 50s roadster. This car is a perfect example of brute force and elegance. In addition, I read somewhere once that some of these rides came equipped with houndstooth cloth seating. Though I prefer leather, houndstooth cloth is a close second. If anyone knows where to find one of these beauties in mint or near mint condition, please let me know.
