I'm just wondering if there are any other Jensen Interceptor owners out there - or am I the only one?

Wowsers..... what a staggering resonse, I guess I am the only maniac amongst us who finds the 'Butt Ugly Car' (my wifes words, not mine) that drinks gas like its going out of fashion, attractive! So I guess I'll just head on out to the garage and see if I can get this butt ugly beast with a/c, leather 'lazy boy' seats and power everything, to run without overheating in this cool climate I live in! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thirsty.gif

Seems to me there are more Jensen Healey owners around here in BCF than owners of Interceptor's, I don't recall seeing any pictures of one in Members Rides (BTW Basil - how soon till that's back?). From what I've observed anecdotally here in Canada - and the United States I presume - the Healey models seem to be as common as the Interceptor out there in British car land and overall both are relatively uncommon having said that.

Anyway... you can be a trailblazer.

As much as I would normally hate to disagree with a lady, I have to say that the Jensen Interceptor isn't an ugly car, I rather like it. I have a Corgi model of the car, so does that qualify me as an owner? ..........I thought not. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nonod.gif

The Interceptor is one of my favorite cars but ownership isn't in the cards right now. Some day though!

Oh great, the wife saw your responses and wants me to ask you if you want to buy it! ( Just say no!) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I see about 3 Interceptors on a semi regular basis. Owning one , only in my dreams. I drove a few when they were near new, and they were a great drive then, and I bet they havn't changed.

Oh well, I'l just have to go on dreamin. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I think they are really good looking. There is one on eBay at the moment at a good price but will need work. I would buy it if I could but

A) no room

B) If I do - no wife - hmmmm?

After 3 yrs of driving from Las Vegas NV to Temecula CA in the Healey (apparently its for a British car show - but I can't seem to get past the wineries), with the sun beating down as we cross Death Valley, the wife finally saw the benefits to owning a Jensen Interceptor (aka Butt Ugly Car - her words). Once she knew it had A/C and Lazy Boy seats, it was just a matter of time before we had one in the garage! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
