OK, that XJS buyer's guide had me hop on Craigslist to see what I could turn up. And this one is definitely not right for me... but it's $950 with a ton of spares to let you drop the budget even lower in Challenge math. Looks like one of those weird not quite a convertible models.

Comes with an extra engine? All I can do now is imagine what a V24 sounds like.

Totally. Idle is like a Miata at 6k.

This is actually a pretty good deal. If I'm getting an xjs it will be a convertible.

Don't forget, after the challenge you can swap it to be carburated and take it to the Gambler 500...
