Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Benefit from a life times experience of rescuing, restoring and refurbishing scores of Jaguars abandoned as being beyond repair. This refreshing read, laced with priceless advice, covers Cross restoration experiences with SS Jaguar saloons and drophead coupes; the MkV, VII, VIII and IX saloons; the XK120, XK140 and XK150 sportscars; the classic Mk 1 and Mk 2 saloons; the famous E-type coupes and convertibles; the XJ6 and XJ12 saloons; and the XJS coupes. Cross identifies and offers solutions to the many pitfalls he has encountered over the years.

Synopsis:

Any owner of an old Jaguar will find this book invaluable. The author imparts the reader with the benefit of a lifetime of rescuing, restoring, and refurbishing scores of Jaguars, man of them previously abandoned as being beyond repair. Writing of virtually every model, the author includes:

-- Advice on interior restoration from a coach work expert

-- A lengthy discussion on collecting Jaguar memorabilia

-- Common pitfalls and how to avoid them

He also explains how owning and driving a Jaguar need not be as expensive as many believe, and how the rare performance and luxury of these cars can be enjoyed by anyone with a good tool kit, sufficient garage space, and, most importantly, a lot of patience and dedication. As the author oozes enthusiasm for these fine but often neglected cars, he also packs his pages with priceless advice.
