Jag for the big win on this one, for me. To the average person, me included, this looks pretty high end. And if the 5.0 is Ford sourced should be reasonably affordable to maintain? 2+2 if I read it right, what's not to love!
The 4.0, 4.2 & the 5.0 Jaguar engine is the last of the Jag breed. The AJ engine was originally built and developed by Jaguar prior to Ford buying Jag. So what you have is a true Jaguar engine. In my personal experience with the 4.2 engine they are absolutely bullet proof. The 4.0 had problems initially but even these were resolved by the time the 4.2 was launched. The 5.0 is a beast and can be a bit temperamental by all accounts.
It is rare that I see so many items I'd like to have on one of these lists. I'll have the Jag, The Honda SL100 and XL250, and the Solstice. A 1973 SL100 was my first new motorcycle. We paid $299 plus tax. It was green with white tank stripes. What I really wanted was an XL250 but I couldn't swing it at the time. I'm shaking my head at the price of the trail 70s.
