About the Author
With two E-type books to his credit, Peter Crespin has many years' experience working on his own Jaguars, which include classic and modern cars and a 1974 Series 2 Daimler used as a daily driver. A frequent contributor to various technical internet forums, Peter has four decades' experience of building and occasionally racing classic bikes and working on classic cars from his well-equipped workshop. A medical writer by profession, he turns his analytical talents to the task of sorting through the three series, four engine sizes and three body styles of the XJ Jaguars sold from 1968 to 1992.

Although this book originates in Britain, it covers North American cars as well. It is jam packed with tidbits of information about all facets of these elegant but not-so-trouble-free autos. The book is handily broken out into sections detailing such things as questions to ask before viewing the car, what to look for while doing a quick walk-around and what to check during a more in-depth inspection. All the well-known (and not so well known) trouble-spots are covered and clear, colorful pictures illustrate these areas. As the title says, all Series are covered and the information within spotlights the differences in them.
Although the book may seem a bit skimpy for the price, it's well worth it. For anyone considering buying a used XJ6, XJ12 or Soveriegn, it's better to spend $20 on this book and get a good car than thousands on a bottomless money pit of a junker.
