Iv been asked by a few to give a comparison with the E type.....but your not going to be pleased...Its a far more thrilling exciting drive....with a huge grin factor totally knocking the spots of an E type.....I suggest you should all buy one..... :scratchheadyellow: ...me thinks the prices should now shoot up :bouncyyellow: .....oh and we can start an Xk forum :bigrin:
Sacrilege! Have that man demoted, banned from the forum then hung, drawn and quartered :bigrin: :bigrin:

On a serious note, I know some members on here have, or are involved with, XK's, so why not have an XK section on the forum? Obviously, many things about the E type engine refer to the Xk as well, so all relevant

Hi Malcom that's a very smart idea....As Steve suggest we could have a discussion apart on the forum...?
We could tell that : other XK ?

Hi Steve,

I've only just seen this. The car looks very nice indeed, congratulations. I've always fancied the idea of an early XK.
I look forward to more pics of the car.

I’d be too excited to sleep if I had all those in the garage!

Congratulations on getting the XK150 - looks like a really nice car.

However to be the main dissenter, the XKs in hard top form are not the prettiest of cars - the roadsters (full convertibles) look really great, the Drop Heads not so much - but I accept that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and as long as it is a vehicle you want that is great.

When I was looking a for a car many years ago I looked at a nice XK150s 3.8 roadster but decided to get my E-type but I still wonder if I should have got the XK 150.

You have a nice car - so get out and enjoy it.
