NMNA

 

Looks like a really good deal.  Unforturnately it's in California.

 

$2000

 

 

This is the classified section where I found my Jaaag (not that I was looking for a spare or anything wink)

In reply to TurnerX19 :

These really are special cars. C5 Corvette performance (400 supercharged horsepower) with civilized manners, four doors and comfortable seating for four.  I still get comments on it just about every where I go.  

SWMBO would love one for herself, if she didn't need to have the people moving capacity of our Van.

Until the collision/damage to the passenger side of the car.

In reply to clutchsmoke :

A replacement fender likely would do it, based this description from the seller :

"Up until sometime last week, it was a beautiful car. Someone hit it last week and has slight damage on the passenger side fender near the head lamp. Hit and run. Totally sucks. So, that's the whole story. If you want pictures, I can post.”

This would make an excellent fly and drive to the challenge. Not quite ready to commit to taking that much time off work.

I have a co-worker who's expressed interest, so I reached out to the seller for some info.  In now have his contact information, so PM me (and post a note here) if you want his phone number.  Let's see who grabs it first.....

These jags are an unbelievable value for what you get. 

Amazing.

True.  That's why I'm casually shopping for another (as a spare), because I don't want to daily drive anything else.

Contact Information sent to another GRM'er (who's more localish to the car).  I really hope someone here grabs it, and starts a build thread.

No.  I haven't seen any pics of the damage yet.

 

In reply to cmcgregor :

I don't think you'd be disappointed with this car. It's a huge step up in performance (at least straight line) and luxury compared to a Miata.

Well that's not saying much, but I take your point cheeky

YES!

And then Nonack can fly out and drive it back for you or Patrick.

Edit: I just got an email from a fellow GRMer whom I've been emailing off the board..... He has an appointment scheduled to go look at the Jaaaaag Thursday.  Good luck.  Hopefully he'll chime in here....

It would be a slightly longer trip this time, but I am so down for enabling. You're welcome to the guest room.

So, I spoke to the owner today. Cool guy, very close to where I'm working. I even found a Jaguar salvage yard in Texas with a replacement fender in a matching color that one could pick up on the way to the challenge.

As I started contemplating possible liveries, I realized the challenge is next weekend and I won't be home until the weekend after. I still want it and plan to take a look at it, but if you're going to take this thing to the challenge I'll happily stay the hell out of the way or even try to help facilitate that deal.
