My Classic Car

When the 3.8 XK150 was My Classic Car
The Jaguar XK150 classic sports car was manufactured by the Jaguar company to change the XK140 model. This car was produced between 1957 and 1961 and was available in two versions: fixed head coupe and drop head coupe. While the history is fascinating this is the kind of car I can call my classic car.
The XK150 was launched by Jaguar in 1957 and it was a considerable improvement from the predecessors, XK120 and XK140. It had a 3.4 liters DOHC engine and a four speed Moss transmission. Also, the brand new body from the car was focused on increasing the interior space as well as on offering good visibility. Whether or not the car's final touches represented a mix between the XK120 and also the XK140, additionally, it were built with a lot of features, like a higher front wing, a new broader radiator grille or even the leather car interior.
For the 1958 Jaguar XK150 the transmission options were the Borg-Warner automatic gearbox and also the overdrive. The XK150 with steel wheels and with all the improvements produced by Jaguar is a rarity on the market, which makes it my classic car option. Besides disc brakes, the Jaguar V8 classic sports car was the very first post war sports car available on the market with a choice available between engine sizes.

Got it in 68 with 12kmi.I put an Abarth exhaust onit.It had a hardtop for the winter and was warm and dry.In the spring I would take it off and drive with a tonneau cover so only the drivers area was open with the top down.The heater on full blast and I was comfortable.I put in a Blaupunkt AM/FM which was a bog deal back then.I has a bookshelf speaker for the rear seat.I would tune the radio in FM between stations and it would pick up the ignition system.I would accelerate with just the front speaker then at 4krpm turn on the rear speaker.It sounded like a jet taking off,especialy when I was stoned.
