Thanks. I have enjoyed the Jag (an '07 XKR) but it may have to go as I now have less garage space and my everyday driver is now outside!  [:(]

Hi Rob
   
   Many thanks for the kind comment! I really like your AC (good color combo!) and the fact that you have something called 'summer' which we seem to have overlooked here. Happy motoring.....

You're welcome Trevor.  It is a beautiful book.  I read the section on Autokraft and beyond last night...what a story.  Brian Angliss sounds like an amazing guy.  Not surprised about his experience with Ford.  I imagine that such an "Almighty" corporation may have played some hardball with Mr. Angliss.  An unfortunate turn of events that eventually took place.  I am looking forward to reading the rest of the book.  I imagine that the forums may have this somewhere, but what happened to Brian Angliss?  Hopefully all is well with him.

I believe he has retired to New Zealand.

Mr. Angliss has indeed retired to the southern hemisphere and will not discuss what took place. It's a convoluted saga.....

Thanks for the information.  Here's hoping he is enjoying life as he has helped many of us enjoy ours through the cars he made.....
