I’m a fan of all classic automobiles whatever their origins, but I give the nod to the European ones. Since getting my Jag I’ve learned what a true Gran Turismo (Grand Tourer) is, and Europe has that market pretty much locked up on them (save a very few examples coming from Japan). In the USA most of us think a Grand Tourer is just a pre-existing model automobile with a faster engine, nicer interior, bigger tires, and GT stamped next to the name. Sorry, for me anyway, there is nothing that compares to a fine European made Gran Turismo. My Jag is almost 20 years old, but I definitely consider it a classic. Time will tell if it lives up to “classic” levels to the general public. Here’s my baby by the way. 1998 Jaguar XK8 I’ve since replaced the stereo. Every nice evening we had this week I put the top down and drove down the A1A (Florida coastline) for just pure enjoyment. There really is nothing more invigorating than driving down the coast with the top down and the stereo blasting.
