It was the "practical" versus "I want it" debate. The practical side of me was saying "Oh, just get a Range Rover, it's got all that room, very luxurious, big and safe, lots of room for the kids....", and the little devil on my other shoulder was saying "Yeah, but you only live once and that Jag is soooo beautiful, you're a musician not a soccer mom, go ahead, live a little, maybe you can pick up a used SUV for the winter!" The little devil won when my kids fit in the back seat. :) ec

Well, you know, Jag does have some beautiful colors, but I've always been partial to black and they just happened to have a black one right there on the showroom floor. And a friend of mine owns the dealership. And apparently, there aren't that many XKR's floating around due to the price tag. Lots of XK's but not that many XKR's. So, I took it as an omen. Right car, right color, right time. ec

You're a musician? Tell me, when is your next gig? I'd love to come see you play.

Way to go Eric. A parent can be wonderful, caring and responsible yet still give in to the little devil once in a while. You and your wife will enjoy the evening rides with the top down and the stars overhead. You can always schlep the kids and groceries around in a more practical vehicle.

That's why our sedan and van are in the driveway, but the yellow 350Z convertible gets the garage.

Somehow, I don't think muddy soccer cleats and ice cream cones will make it into the XKR's back seat. That is why Moms drive SUV's, mini-vans and station wagons! :lol:

I was wondering the same thing myself! :lol::lol::lol: Did you actually take it for a test drag err.. I mean test drive before making that "pratical" vs. "I want it" decision? ;)

I just found this at his son's MySpace page, and thought you'd all like to see what he thinks of his dad's new car:

"My poopy head dad just buyed a really cool car named jagwar. It is cool but he is a poopy head becoz there is no place for my sister's sippy cups or my shin guards, and it doz not have a dvd player. whenever we are in the car without mom my dad makes us duck down inthe back seat when we drive by other moms and he shouts out the window 'helloooo ladies'. it makes him happy so i guess its a cool car. i just wish it had a dvd player."
