beauty at the 96…

Dear diablog,

As I warned there will be a cessation on 96 meet posts for a couple of months as they have had, for various reasons, to cancel the March and April ones.

However, I don’t think I have featured this very pretty repro Jaguar C type before


which was to be found in January on a very cold day!


but looked brilliant from any angle




and certainly had all the bits and pieces one would expect of a Le Mans car – stark but functional.


though me thinks that the owner didn’t have confidence in the battery


but then who cares when the whole thing was so lovely.


Yours, diablog, on the Mulsanne

  1. You may have covered the C type before Glynsky, but it is always a pleasure to see the pics, a stunning car.
    Would certainly be a pleasure to own.

  2. On another car note, I watched the Man from Uncle recently.
    I missed your cars completely Glynsky, wasn’t through lack of concentration, I was on a flight.

  3. Awww don’t worry Druid, Glyn will still be a pal, he is understanding like that.
    As for half arsed efforts; I saw them, it was cool and I enjoyed it very much. It is nice to see how serious actors get in their roles. Such professionalism. I had taken drama before but my priorities were very different then. Though fantasies of having one task to complete in year is dream, and they sure make it look good.

  4. Druid is right, we have seen this one before, but pretty is certainly is. I asked before, but had no response, how do you know it is a repro?

    Here’s one for ER…..

    A New York attorney representing a wealthy art collector called and asked to speak to his client, “So listen, already, Paul, I have some good news and I have some bad news.”

    The art collector replied, “I’ve had an awful day; let’s hear the good news first.”

    The lawyer said, “Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she invested $5,000 in two pictures that she thinks will bring a minimum of $15-20 million. I think she could be right.”

    Paul replied enthusiastically, “Well done! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman! You’ve just made my day. Now I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?”

    The lawyer replied, “The pictures are of you and your secretary.”
