E is for Effervescent: 1967 Jaguar XKE

This Jaguar has 74,000 miles, fresh paint and new metal panels welded in place of the old rusted ones. Nothing new can be said about the original Jaguar XKE and its bulbous hindquarters, so have some traditional Japanese poetry. Find this 1967 Jaguar XKE 2+2 Fixed-Head Coupe Coupe in Tifton, GA for $26,500 via Hemmings.

classic lines, high price

faster than a trip to France

slightly less hair too

slushbox luxury

shifting gears is for peasants

(don’t tell Stirling Moss)

series 1.5:

buying a cheap classic Jag?

you degenerate

future wire problems

rust, smells like a wet dog

$30k well spent

zero to sixty

slower than a V6 Camry

oh, what hath God wrought?

2+2 seating

room for that other couple a Chevy V8

from a junkyard trip

white window sticker

surely stands for Great Britain

or maybe George Bush

PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
