The 1958 Rocker is on a distinguished road
Default Front ender

Yes, I can confirm that thirty years ago I had a Jaguar 240 which I rebuilt completely. One day I was late picking the girl friend up from work so had to "put my foot down" (Read drive at full bore all the way) I new I was going fast as the speedo needle was gently run ning back and forth over the 120 mph digits, and the car felt like the front was low. Grip was excellent with very positive non power steering. When I saw a friend of mine that night he said he passed me in the oposite direction and the front was so low the front number plate was sparking on the road. I wasn't aware officer but can confirm we walked outside and sure enough my number plate was a little narrower trhan in the morning.

Looks like we might have to call Mr Janes, Mr Lyons-Janes!!
