We get it, the guy, (I doubt he cleans his own car) doesn’t clean the same way as you and it has blatant product placement to give Mr. Bond a run for his money. That being said, there’s a guy trying to tell a story. Don’t be like those mitary buffs who can’t watch a film because, “the actor wasn’t shouldering his rifle properly”. Nobody enjoys being around that guy.

That’s a bit mean, the bloke was making a film for this site. He seemed nice enough and the car looked great

Really disappointed about that cheesy, overly-forced product placement. Also, what kind of legitimate enthusiast washes their car in blazing, direct sunlight?

Great lines of the coupe, it is a true Jaguar & in mint condition. Congratulations also on the video, remarkable scenery in California Coast!!!

Dumb film, annoying music and the wrong Spyder. A long wheelbase, open headlight and no front bumper Ferrari is not the one to use.
You should film the right car, a short wheelbase, covered headlight car … if you can even find one to shoot.
This was the 1st Ferrari I ever rode in, (1964) I was 20 years old, in So. Cal.
I was hooked and 6 years later I was driving my own 365 GTB/4 Daytona!

No issue with the Turtle Wax bit, but what are ‘Em Kay’ Jags? Assume Mark? Very strange. But even weirder, what are ‘in-line brakes’?

Does anyone here know about cars any more?

mark 1 and mark 2 saloons they ran from about 1955 to 1966/7.
Can be very nice and were very fast by the standards of the day.

Awesome car, and what a great owner. Car enthusiasts truly appreciate what they drive, and yearn to get seat time whenever possible. This can be difficult, but the secret is to incorporate both and Mr. Glancy has done just that with his young family.

And the shape of that car! Oh mercy. The profile of this car is an absolute thing of stunning beauty. Skip to 7 min 14 seconds to see the side of the car. No B-pillar. Forward leaning grill. Steeply raked windshield. Dainty A pillar and thick C pillar. Perfectly proportioned greenhouse to body ratio. Deeply dished outer portions of the rims. Quad headlights. Non-protruding bonnet emblem. The last of the euro spec bumpers before the 5MPH safety regulations. Chrome everywhere. And that color is a perfect match. This is pure car porn design… We will never see new cars look like this ever again.

Congrats Petrolicious for another great vid. And kudos to Mr. Clancy for keeping this car exactly as it is. It’s a work of rolling art, you should be proud.

As far as ads, I don’t mind them regardless of how they’re placed. If it allows videos like this to continue, so be it. I’ll take them. Art needs to be subsidized, too.

One of the worst Wax ads ever! Product placement must come natural, not forced.

An underappreciated body style and model. One of the best lookings Jags ever and if we have to watch a few minutes of Turtle Wax promo in order to continue these great videos – so be it.

Really nice story. Beautiful car and a 6 which is nice cause everybody is always going on about the 12 which is cool don’t get me wrong but the 6 delivered more than enough.

Funny thing is at least in Australia the XJCs are becoming blue chip collector cars. I say this cause you said you didn’t see yours as that. You might need to rethink! Lol.

Very nice! My parents friend had one way back when I was in elementary school. He was a medical doctor, and I remember how he called it an “appropriate mode of transport for a doctor.” He was elegantly pompous.

Beautiful film of a much under-rated car. If anyone is looking to have their XJ6C restored or to purchase a project, I sincerely recommend a visit to the workshop of https://www.sportscarclassics.us/ in Newbury Park CA. My only association with them is as a customer.

The power window switch panel has the same pattern as the panels used on Land Rovers till 04. Knowing how the English auto industry pulled from the same bins I’m betting it’s the same panel.

An 8 minute Turtle Wax commercial. Least they chose a very nice car. It will only be a matter of time till Petrolicious goes by the way of Roadkill and becomes pay per view. It all starts with the product placements.

Yes, it’s appalling that these people try to get some money in return for the videos they offer us for free.

Christopher, I think the reason is simple why other car owners would have such an appreciation; this Jag has an elegance that’s hard to match even by the great Italian and German marques. You’re a lucky guy, gorgeous car and a beautiful family, but wonderful appreciation of it all!

You had me at “pillar less coupe”. Beautiful car, perfect color, great owner…

Such a stylish carriage. Always thought that the addition of Dunlop steel wheels would be a worthy upgrade denoting just a hint of Jaguars racing heritage. Here is a more in depth look at this XJ6C and owner, on Jay Lenos Garage

Thanks for such an evocative film. My present Jaguar is an ’86 Vanden Plas and i never tire of driving it. No, it’s not fast and does not have a USB port to plug into but the car is all about de stressing from modern life, luxuriously. It never fails to lower my blood pressure and put a smile on my face. Now if I only lived where Mr. Glancy does…

Very nicely done.. a great and underappreciated car. No matter how fussy or troublesome, through-out the model range they are undeniably some the most beautiful and unique cars on the road! I have been around and owned Jaguars since the ripe old age of 18. Although there are numerous cars in the stable now, I am down to one Jag, a 2000 XK8 coupe in Brg/tan and everyone seems to love it.
