WCOC Match 4

XJ220 v Healey 3000

I have never liked the XJ220. something I have in common with the various celebs who got themselves on the waiting list then tried to get out of it. Compared to the F1, 959, 288GTO, F40 it looks big, bulbous and unwieldy. The only Jags I don't like are this and the X-Type saloon.

Healey for me.

I think the XJ220 looks great, it's enourmous

I like the Jag because it actually looks like a Jaguar. A big black dangerous slinky jungle cat.

I'll go for the Jag, but neither really float my boat.

The 220, mainly because it looks less silly than that old relic

Not bad, it's only taken you 437 years to figure out how democracy works

You have me confused with David WB

I can temporarily have a picture of an orange car though if you wish?

...a change is as good as a rest.

I know it was DWB, he's taking it around to KB's when he gets it. It strikes me as being your sort of car too, no?

It's one of those that are on the list of cars I like and/or respect, but wouldn't want to own

It's quite a lengthy list

You joke, but that's exactly how I'm going to have to decide this time!

Do I go for the ones whose overall stance I disagree with, or the one who I don't trust to enact any of their policies successfully anyway?

The Healey is well-known as being a hypocrite in matters of policy.

You're placing way too much credence on the printed manifesto.

Tough call as neither are especially good looking and don't occupy the same "space" as they say in marketing circles.

The Healey was at it's best as a brash, brutal, hairy-chested rally car. Never a beauty but ruggedly handsome.

I'm also in agreement with many of you unconvinced by the Jag. But on looks I reluctantly give it my vote knowing it would have lost against many of the other contenders.

I always felt that the Healey looks best on a rally stage covered in ****, having the nads thrashed off it. Overly restored road cars with chrome wires, chrome grilles, polished screen surrounds, chrome spotlamps etc etc look bloody awful.
