Outstanding.

Have you seen a pic of the damaged area yet?  How receptive do you think he is to low offer of say..... $1500?

Grab it, enjoy it for a year, and then bring it to next year's Challenge.  Seems like the smart thing to do wink

As I started contemplating possible liveries, I realized the challenge is next weekend and I won't be home until the weekend after.

Uh... what?  It's two months away!

I admit, I did a double take like, "oh crap is it that soon already? I'm not prepared"

I am dumb and wrong. As it turns out, although August is the eighth month, it is, in fact, not October.

Does this now mean you're able to make it to the challenge?

It's your fault that I'll now confuse October as the 8th month for the rest of my life.

oh geez it's a good thing that isn't local.  I have been eyeing these for a while.  I think curtis was trying to buy one too?

What's a nonack-drive from CA cost these days?

You fly me out to it and drive me home (or pick it up at my place) after I get back, so depends on the cost of plane tickets.

Well, I should be able to easily sell my XJR on GRM whenever that happens.

So, I met George tonight. Very cool dude, significant amateur racing experience. The car is exceptionally nice for the mileage (160k) and the fender could easily be run at the challenge as-is. I wasn't able to go for a test drive today, but after seeing how the car appears to have been pampered, starts up right away after having sat for a while and blows cold a/c, I'm completely sold. The only apparent issues are old tires and a non-fuctioning coolant level sensor. 

I would love to talk him down on the price, but the car is worth significantly more than is being asked and George is just a super nice guy. I'm considering buying the car and wheels separately. The wheels are quite desirable in the Jaguar community, worth as much as half the asking price of the car on their own. If I was entering the regular challenge, I wouldn't think twice about it. Since I want to enter in the Gastropod class, I'm less clear on whether that's within the spirit of the event. What does everyone think?

Drool.

 

That's nice!  He even cared enough to store it with the windshield shade in place.  That is/was a well cared for cat.

And you're right, those are nice looking wheels!

See you in October!

I've got my eye on grabbing another one, so I'll post up the next one I find too.

I hope you paid separately for the wheels. Buying well is half the Challenge as they say.

Very nice. You all have made me  want one of these cars bad.

Like, given the opportunity I’d trade my two cars to have one. And that’s saying a lot because I really like my wagon.
