I see that as a sign we're teaching our youngsters right...my girl searched for a long time to get her XJ..looked at several cars but held out for her '89. She's hoping to get it on the road by this weekend, needs to be registered after her dad fixes the brakes...

YKYDAXJW...you have random items in your XJ that can help a buddy fix his brake switch problem..like a plastic washer that was a perfect fit so his brake lights would go off.

YKYDAXJ when..

Your idea of going on "sabbatical" was visiting the Toledo North Assembly Plant where XJs were built.

When you built a statue or bust in memory of Richard A. Teague(chief designer of the XJ).

I've toured the North Toledo plant. It's not super impressive.
