Why My Availability has been Poor

Post by Aaron Robinson » 11 Sep 2007, 02:09

As many of you have probably noticed, the amount of time I've devoted to SimAirline.net over the last month has suffered a bit. Here's why: I've been busy settling in my new locale, and a big part of this has involved bringing my second car up to join me. Two weeks ago, it finally arrived, and I had an enjoyable drive with it in the country last weekend. So hopefully things will be getting back to where they should be as this month progresses. I truly appreciate your patience and understanding--the last three months have been the busiest of my life, and I'm hopeful that I can continue my commitment to SimAirline.net as I have in the past.

It's a 1962 Jaguar, Mark II. Apologies for the photo quality.

That is a beautiful automobile! :shock:

My dad wants to restore a Jag XKE. V12...

Anyway, that's a great looking car. Looks like it's in mint condition. You've done an excellent job maintenance wise.

Beautiful classic Jaguar there Aaron, They don't build cars like this anymore, Lashings of real wood and leather, its like driving around in a English country manor!! :lol: I wish my old 1985 XJ12 looked as good but unfortunately Jaguars build quality had gone well down the pan by the time my car was made :roll:

Yeah we have a German mechanic. Both he and his wife have been in the business for 30, 40+ years. They always said that Jags were heavy on the maintenance.

Bond started in 1958 with Dr. No being released the same year that car was, 1962. That's very James Bond.

No problem, I know from experience how time-consuming moving is.
