Basically, a snobby way of saying "is the car rear or front wheel drive?" RWD cars hang the engine behind the front axle and line it up longitudinally (driveshaft running front-back) which requires a lot more space in the front compartment.
People, particularly car enthusiasts, forget that there were a lot of **** rear-wheel-drive cars around before FWD, and a rear-wheel-drive car in the hands of an average driver is less predictable in extreme conditions than front-drive.
As I'm now an antique and just hanging out to dry, I'll have to give it a miss.:
Still, as I owned four models in the past, I'll not gripe on, but I do hope some of you guys get one and give an opinion on AO.
The first Jag (Erm' just titled SS iirc) I remember was back in !946 when I were a nipper, that was an SS1, and it was spread about that as it was shortly after WW11, the SS was dropped for obvious reasons and Jaguar was born?
I still remember it quite distinctly as it was maroon and black and smelt of fresh cellulose as it had just had paintwork done at a local garage.
Go for it chaps get a fresh take on your motoring requirements? :thumbs:
