Just British, US website, August 2016, by Michael Carnell

'In a lot of ways this is a restoration and maintenance manual, for it surely covers those points. But in many ways, it is much more. It is both the story of one man’s undertaking and recommendations and ruminations on the process. It is a discussion with a friend – a very knowledgeable and experienced friend. You may flip through a manual once and then go back from time to time for reference, this is a book you can sit down with and read. Cover to cover. If you are the owner or prospective owner of a classic Jaguar, especially an XK, you need this book. It will be both and education and a resource. If you are restoring a classic of any marque, you need to at least check out the book. I think it will give you some good ideas and encouragement for your own projects.'

'Bob Exelby's masterful restoration of his Jaguar XK120 certainly serves as instructional inspiration, but there's far more to it than that.

'Exelby's XK120, "KRU 600", has a fascination story to tell. Rescued in disparate pieces from a house sale, it was a pre-production car whose production was sandwiched by the alloy-bodied cars and the mainstream export steel versions.'

'This book is invaluable if you want to know what makes an XK tick, and want to gain a whole load of invaluable tips and advice from someone who's been there, done it and still has the grease under his fingernails to prove it.'
