I think the XJ6 was the best looking 4-door ever made, too - but only the ones up to the point that they ruined them by getting rid of the dual gas caps, the chrome details, etc. At one time, I entertained the idea of installing a small block/turbo in one - there were kits that contained everything you needed. Nonrunning Jaguars were available all over the place for practically free at one time. My (wealthy) boss in Atlanta leased one in the early 80's for his wife, he had to buy her another car and the XJ6 stayed in the garage because she refused to drive it because it was so unreliable.
