1984 Jaguar XJ6Murilee Martin3/21/08 9:20amFiled to: Down On The Street1980S1984AlamedaXJ-6XJ6british leylandJaguar32EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkConsidering how many Jaguar XJ6s I see in the junkyard, they're not so common on the streets of Alameda. My guess is that dead Jags languish in back yards, garages, and driveways for year after year (it just needs a few "minor repairs," really!), until an enraged wife or landlord dispatches them to The Crusher. Whatever the reason, it's been quite a while since we last saw a Jaguar in this series, so I was pleased to spot this decent-looking '84, not far from yesterday's DOTS Porsche 912. Close examination of this car reveals a few warts, but try to imagine the post-Malaise cocaine-fueled optimism of Jaguar ownership in the mid-80s when you look at it.
