The XKE 'evolved' from which Triumph???

It actually evolved from the XK120, XK140 and XK150 with a good measure of the 'C'-type and 'D'-type thrown in after their successes in sports car racing (Le Mans etc..)

Although I'd argue the sexiest car since the 1930's would have to be either the Ferrari 250 GTO or the AC Cobra - tough choice between the two.

And STFO about the whole intelligent design vs. evolution crap. We understand where you stand. Enough already.

False. The sexiest car of all times is the Ford GT 40

I'd call the GT 40 the greatest car of all time, they hit 250 at Lemans beating Ferrari

The Jag XK-xx series was the most unreliable POS of all time. The car needed the camshafts removed for valve adjustment(surface grinding the spacers) every 5000 miles to stay in tune. I'm running a DOHC car today and have never touched the cams at 300K miles.

The car could hold two people and a carryon bag at the most, and looked like an overgrown penis.

You've just proven that you've neither owned nor worked on a 6-cylinder OHC Jaguar engine in your life.

Camshafts? Plural? It was/is a SOHC!!!

Valve adjustments every 5000 miles? Ha, ha ha ha - HA!

Valve/cam shims can be gauged/replaced (if necessary) without removing the camshaft, - if you know how to do it, that is ...

BTW - you don't surface grind the original case-hardened valve shims. - You carry a stock of shims in .010" increments to make adjustments, when necessary - which is rare if you look after the engine with regular maintenance.

Who's paying you to post?
