I spent the weekend looking for a new car. My last two cars have been Jaguars and with the demise of the S-Type, they've lost me. The XK is too little, the XJ is to old, and the XF is not a real Jag. What were they thinking getting rid of the hood jaguar on the XF? Nothing I've seen makes me weak at the knees and I grew up in a car crazed family-cars excite me. I'm leaning towards a BMW, but still on the fence. I love vintage cars. Today's cars just don't have the same style and elegance. Oh to drive a Porsche 911, an Aston Martin, a Karmann Ghia convertible in orange, a powder blue BMW 2002. What cars of today will become classics? It's hard to imagine except the Mini Cooper perhaps. Anyone driving something you just love? Do tell. I am in need of inspiration.
