6: Jag XK 120

Finally back to painting and posting new work on my blog. This close-up is of the car that changed America forever. The Jaguar XK 120 hit the US like a lightning bolt in 1949, showing everyone what a street legal high performance car could do. It also had the most beautiful lines
of any car of the time. Jag did it again in the '60s with the E-type, and then the company sank back to making English Buicks for the doctor / lawyer / broker set.

Oil on canvas, 46" X 18", from photography at the July 2001 Jag meet in Franklin, TN.
