“The British Invasion of Stowe has come and gone, and along with it summer as well. After a leisurely 50,000 mile ring and valve job occasioned by a long ago southern California overheating incident I decided the 420 Jaguar ought to put in an appearance and it was car #508 at the Show. You might say the British Invasion was pretty well attended. We’re still rolling right along here and one of our more interesting current workpieces is an export delivery Jaguar Mk2 purchased new in 1967 by an American Serviceman stationed in Germany, which was slumbering in a barn in Connecticut for a whole lot longer than Rip Van Winkle did. Do you have something British in similar straits? Maybe we should talk."
