This 1995 Jaguar XJS was our family cat

Jaguars conjure up many different images. The ownership experience acquired a bad rap during the troubled early Seventies before Sir John Egan stepped in to take the firm private once again, but there was always something special about being a Jaguar owner. And the cars themselves! Classy luxury sedans like the Mark II and XJ6. Memorable sports cars like the XK 120 and E-Type. Then there’s the XJ-S, which had some very big shoes to fill, but wound up enjoying over 20 years of production.
