    John, no offence taken, Jim stated that the ex Millen car was not a sports saloon and I agree as it never raced in that class when it was in the form as Millen raced it. It simply was a different...

    You are quite correct about those XJS's. The front end of them is as weak as any thing I have seen. Compared to the stucture in a Mk2 one would have to say the engineering is irresonsible!! Mind you...

    Dale, I think you are begining to show signs of delusions of granduer. What makes you think that unless we join up to your idea, we are not classic racers? It may surprise you to know that not every...
