    Question...Jaguar, Daimler, Ford...

    Not to open a can of worms....

    Jaguar was bought by Ford, right? ok... so Jag belongs to Ford...

    So what is that Daimler car that looks EXACTLY like a Jaguar but is a tiny bit longer (this is what I was told, basically a few inches longer for more room inside, like limo version)...

    So how does the DaimlerC X Jag X Ford triangle of love work?

    Daimler: http://www.jagclub.net/images/Daimler%201996.jpg
    Jag : http://www.jagclub.net/images/jag96-2.jpg

    I'm not particularly fond of any of them, I was just thinking the other day I remembered my grandparents have a Daimler in switzerland, and I was reading about Range Rovers getting Jag electronics and Jag engines (since both RR and Jag are Ford) and I got confused

    Well, you see this is where you got it all wrong...Ford owns Jag, not Jag is owned by Ford...

    The Daimler name at Jaguar it means the same thing like Vanden Plas in USA, only in other markets. It's another one too, Sovereign. I Europe they don't use the cat ornament for safety reasons. This car does not have Ford parts. All electric parts are Lucas. Here a picture of my car(1995 Vanden Plas):

    Vanden Plas is just one of the variations of Jaguar AND Daimler. Since 60's, both companies are exactly the same for god knows what reason. Since Ford owns Jag since something like '89, that means that Daimler has quite a few parts that are Ford.
    And what do you mean safety reasons for absense of car ornament? Jag has one in Europe and so does Rolls-Royce.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.
