OK, OK, you guys got me feeling so guilty that I made up an excuse for an 
errand and ran up to Palo Alto in the afternoon. Saw one Jensen-Healey on 
the way. Risked overheating by "showing the colors" on University Avenue 
downtown (you locals will know what I mean). One XJS, one XK8, and one 
white RBB (all parked), and a few Range Rovers. Tried my best to get a 
reaction by tearing through the gears and giving everyone the benefit of 
what to me is a perfectly ripping exhaust note, but you know how blase 
they are in the "center of the universe"... You'll be glad to know I 
tried but failed to scrub off my greasy fingerprints on the wings last 
weekend -- I think they've soaked in. Nice day, all in all.

I promise I'll get out tomorrow as well, OK?

Runs great, 
looks particularly bad since some SUV clown backed into it.
If you're near Mountain View, CA,
it's the red one with the silver bootlid.
