About my car

This beauty here is Diana, my 1997 Jaguar Vanden Plas. She has 112k original miles, and drives like new. I got the car July of 2016 from a family friend, after he was talking about it and said he was thinking of selling it. I talked to him for a little while, and soon I wanted to see it for myself.

I stopped by his garage on July 10th, and it was already out in front, waiting for me. I took a long look over the whole car, checked the frame, engine, interior, and paint, and instantly loved it. I took it for a test drive, and knew that I needed it. I came back to the garage, and talked the price over with him.

At first he wanted around $2,100, but I talked him down to $1,500 because of the grill and paint damage. We shook hands, and Diana became mine.

The first thing I did was give the car a nice wash, inside and out, discover how bad of a smoker the original owner was, and stare at my new investment for a few hours.

Hopefully I'll be able to do some upgrades in the future to make her the ultimate daily cruiser. Thanks for checking out my ride, and stay tuned for more to come.
