The second car I fell in love with is this 1946 Jaguar Mark IV Drophead Coupe. Steel grey. Intimidating (for its time).

Pictures are taken in the driveway of our home just south of Akron, Ohio, in 1960.
Although beautiful, the Jag did not drive as well as the MGTC had done. It was somewhat sluggish on turns, even though very low-slung for its day.

We sold it to a buyer in Texas in 1962 for lack of room to store it. He "stole it" for $605.
