The first Jensen I ever saw I was 8 and have never lost my awe. 15 years later I bought my Jensen. Roll on from 1987 to 2020 - 33 years later still having never driven a Jensen I edge closer to that moment. Here are some pictures of that journey. I also include 3 pictures of other Jensens I have encountered.

Holy Mackerel!

You really got smitten!

I bought mine without having driven one, but mine was a driver when it arrived.

I have to give you’re a lot of credit for stick-to-it-tive-ness!

These pics look like Grant after a heavy nite or an Army SAS IQ test. You have the Forum's total respect. Kenny 38 :shock:
