New to me when it was new!

Hi guys, just thought I'd share my XJs birth and re-birth. I've been excited to have it back in my life and just in time to serve family duty!

Here's how it came from the factory. It was a special order BTW. I remember my brother picking and choosing all the right stuff like a Dana44! We then had to wait for it to be built and sent to our dealer.
