Got it.

For those of you who've asked "what happened???", I bought the Etype this past Saturday. It's my first classic car purchase. I was nervous, nervous, nervous...but no longer.

He came down in price, to $23,000. Seems Christie's was interested in auctioning it up in Pebble Beach in August, but he'd have to pay a commission, so the ball turned out to be in my court.

Just got it appraised today.

Next to contact JC Taylor, and to get new plates...thinking of BYHDDRM.

Soon this car will be where it belongs...not cooped up in a garage, but on the Pacific Coast Highway up to Duke's on the Beach in Malibu, about an hour from my door.

Hello, sunsets...

Congratulations! I am pleased that you finally bought the car. I'm sure that I speak for all of us when I say "Let's see some photographs".

Well well well! So you finally got your dream machine! Very cool! I think you are going to be happier with this one than you would have with that "other" one I looked at for you. Be sure to post some pics and also we expect a full report on your drive up the coast! What a great place to own a EType!

Congrats!

Hey Baldy
Congrats on the "E"
Pasadena is my old stomping ground and my Mum and sis are still there. I just installed a new aluminimum radiator in my 66 and my SU rebuild kits just arrived in the mail so I may soon feel
more confident about a trip up your direction. If you are down this way, it would be fun to hook up for a cruze. San Diego Jag Club is having it's concours on Aug 11 at Spanish landing by Lindberg field at San Diego Bay. I'll be in the Sierras that weekend so i can't make it myself, but you might enjoy it.
Good luck Scott

Cool Dude, Like PCH is my favorite place to Hang.
I love PCH for a drive (not on Sat morn or rush hours) but the drive is great...after you leave the valley north it is a little twisty. I am particularly glad to hear that you bought your auto for some fun and use...I don't like paper-weights. I have 4 MGs, an Austin, a Nash Metro, and a Jag...they are all driven. I think my new motto will be "No Paper-weights".

Thanks, everyone, for all your well wishes. So far, the cat's just been out for some short evening jaunts. Once the insurance is in and the car is re-registered, it'll be hitting the highway...

That's very cool! Sounds like you got a great Jag there (envy). Be sure to post some pics ASAP so we can all see your new baby!
