Car Catcher: The Fat Cat Jaguar XK8

Quick: Name a more handsome late '90s, early '00s GT car than the Jaguar XK8. Okay, there are probably a few, but this 2000 Jaguar XK8 Convertible has aged gracefully. And they're a good deal, too. Find the XK8 on offer from Barrett-Jackson, where it will sell with no reserve at their Las Vegas show October 3-5.

I have a 2002 X100 XKR, the supercharged XK8, and although I think the car is beautiful and can easily be bought under $10,000.00 for very good examples, there is a lot of cowl shake, actually just shaking, period.  It takes some of the joy out of driving it, but maybe that's because the X150 is so much better in every way.  But for stylish looks at an entry level economy car's pricing, you will get more compliments on it than any other car you've ever owned.  I know I do on mine.  Add to that a cavernous trunk that does not shrink when the top is down as it stacks behind the back seat but out of the trunk cavity., and you have a very versatile, stylish entry level classic.  Cars with the 4.0L engines must have the secondary tensioners changed from the plastic breakable ones to the metal ones to prevent catastrophic engine failure.
