Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

I try to enjoy myself, but I have to be careful about what I buy. If you are caught with automatic knives, the fines get very steep. If you throw firecrackers in the surf away from others, the police, firefighters will get angry if you don't watch yourself and get too close to others.

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

Look for more of those Korean Rizzy to help pay for the gas used on the trip !! That may happen. It will likely run a maximum of $528.00 for gasoline and $350.00 for a hotel room. www.hotelaquario.com That's edging close to $900 to get there and back another $500.00 for food, edging me to $1400.00 ...

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

Hope your trip goes well for you and your new car. Thanks, Sammy. The Jag is very nice. I am adjusting my "trip cycle" to make certain that I can truly relax when I arrive. If I arrive at the US/Mexico border during the mid-morning hours It is easier to store my clothes in the room and get some ine...

I'm heading back to Tijuana in my new-to-me Jag.

I'll be heading back to Tijuana on May 17th and I'll be heading back on the 25th. The Jag is running fine and I'll soon be wending my way back to Mexico for the same reasons I went last time. Good seafood, beautiful beaches, nice jewelry (silver rings) great fireworks, marvelous museums, and tasty m...

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

I'm heading back south on May 17th and returning on the 25th. Bonzo: I'm afraid that I'm making a straight shot from here down Interstate 5 to Tijuana. The only way I could come over to visit you is when I return. I'm taking my new-to-me Jaguar XJ6L (X330).

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

To my knowledge, the "donkey shows" haven't been in existence for more than 60 years. Those took place in Ciudad Juarez long, long ago. The vulgar side of Tijuana is in the Zona Norte (North Zone) where the honkytonks and brothels (as well as streetwalkers) are openly seen. It is a well-known fact t...

That was close to the quote used by George Smith Patton when referring to a "pearl-handled" (gripped) revolver. He said, "Only a cheap pimp in a New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl-handled revolver." (There, I fixed it for you).

I would like to drive back to Tijuana next month.

If I can, I would enjoy driving the Jaguar X330 (XJ6L) the 1160-mile trek to Baja California Norte while the weather is good. (Next week I should take possession of the Jag and take it for its "maiden cruise" to the Oregon Coast. (BTW, the A?C blows nice and cold).

Life can be good.

Listen, the 4.0 liter that Jaguar produced from 1994-1997 was made during Ford's ownership of Jaguar. These are the most reliable Jaguars on the road today. Mine has the Ford co-produced AJ16 engine. Some are still running after 300,000+ miles.

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

Does this model Jag use Lucas electrics? If so, consider some sort of exorcism, or selective replacements of a lot of the Lucas stuff... No, it does not. This was the last year of the 243.5 cubic inches (4.0 liter) I6. This doesn't have the "Prince Of Darkness" Lucas systems. This model was made 8 ...

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

I received a call from my Personal Injury Attorney this morning. I'll be receiving about $13,333.33 by early May. I'll pay the $2500.00 to obtain the title for the Jaguar and I'll have enough to afford another trip south of the border. I'm going to fly this time because my travel partner doesn't wan...

Re: I have been buying silver rings on Revolution Avenue.

I DO enjoy Tijuana and its residents/people. I am a truly gregarious individual that likes to make friends wherever I go. The "Ugly American" really irritates me. I have more than a few compatriots south of the border.

I love the people and their attitude.

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

Have you ever worked on one or priced parts? There is a reason why they sell so cheap and can hardly be given away. Sorry, but somebody seen you coming. Gentlemen. Truth be told, the Jaguar four-door saloons built between 1994 and 1997 were built after the 200-million pound investment from Ford Mot...
