If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1974 Series III Jaguar V12 Roadster (Factory 4 speed, air, & wire wheel)
I purchased my ’74, in 1996 from a physician here in the Twin Cities. The odometer reading at that time was ~29,000 miles. Based on Minnesota weather I have enjoyed driving my Jaguar, on occasion and when possible, from late May to the end of October. The car has always been garaged at home and at the office. Before retiring and not traveling on business, I tried to drive the Jaguar once a week to the office weather permitting.
My Jaguar is a well-maintained specimen of British Motoring History. It has spent several months, over the last two years, with my favorite mechanic performing general maintenance and installing the new items listed below. I have all service records on the vehicle from the date of purchase.
Body chrome, bumpers (aka over riders), upholstery and carpet are all original as are the convertible top, trunk liner, tonneau cover, and tire jack including case. The NADPI steering wheel, fire suppression system and Alpine radio were installed by the previous owner.
New items include five-period correct radial tires, shocks, brakes, dash, console, sun visors, and XXX Triplex windshield, plus a spin-on oil filter, car cover new floor mats, & battery tender.
Additional items that go with the car when purchased include:
Weber carburetor set that was on the car when purchased
Custom hood bra created by members of the Jaguar Club of Minnesota
Two Owner’s manuals
Miscellaneous car parts including the original steering wheel (minus center ring), oil filter assembly, and locking cap.
I have owned the Jaguar for twenty-three years. The car is very straight and to my knowledge has never been in an accident. There are a few blemishes in the paint on the hood and minor nicks on the edge of the passenger door. I have always referred to my Jaguar as a survivor that certainly has bones to become a concours automobile if that’s your pleasure. Frankly, I always wanted and own, and original, numbers matching, very presentable automobile, that I can enjoy on occasion with perhaps maybe a little less trepidation.
