Pearly Gates ahead to most likely MY LAST CAR
As I start the next phase of transactions several of the cars I liked have suddenly SOLD! So time to review those that I still like and start working on what must be “Plan J” by now!
Top of the tree in the likes department is the 2008 XJ Supercharged B.R.G. out in NJ. Of course it’s one of the most expensive, has the most miles, and is the furthest away, but nonetheless I LUV it!
No2, is up in Denver, the closest, not too many miles, and most likely the best deal. Red and Supercharged and even has a British Union Jack logo already on it.
Has something about it
All the wood, and DVD’s
All the woof!
Could it be telling me something ?????
Not exactly the last one but really nice exterior but no interior shots to make a solid decision
I haven’t seen a Jag in this color
Well I’ve done a little shopping for trinkets already with another Spyder Windstopper sweater as my old ones are now too big and are selling well on the Bay.
This is the first I bought for the Green No1
Of course if I were to go Red in my increasing years here is one I could wear
Nice but a bit overpriced, better make some offers, not bought it yet!
Some baubles for the said Red motor
Might look good ?
A universal pressie for me that will be good for all
It has a little class to it I think
On the car front badges I would somehow like to have all my Squadron Badges on the grille and amazingly my RAFMSA badge from my RAF days looks a little tired being 50 years old now! Damn that’s a long time I’ve had that, anyhoo while drifting through E-Bay here is one in the States!!!!!
Looks to be in excellent condition
About 3 weeks to wait, as even with a $2000 deposit, (non returnable) the dealer won’t hold it. Greedy methinks but it is their business. Never know, something closer might pop up while I’m waiting. Fingers crossed but 3 weeks is a long time! But there again I’ve been looking since October 2019 while I was about 1/2 way through the first 12 sessions of Chemo and before we had even heard of the Covid 19 Pandemic to come.
Another day slips by and only 6F on the thermometer. Another day closer so never give up. Today the loft needs to be explored and find all my Squadron Plaques which were tossed in a box when we left Phoenix in 2008 and have been there ever since. All my years in the RAF just thrown out of sight, I strongly object!
30 years of service needs to be remembered
Huge bounty found, suits, jackets and a Tux (James Bondish) gloves, Yamaha riding gear, and a Big luxury camera bag. Not forgetting all my Squadron Plaques. Can’t wait to see what’s in the workshop loft and all the long forgotten parts.
Wednesday already, 1/13/21 and the first surprise of the morning was my No1 choice, which was already overpriced, according to Car Gurus has gone up $2500 ???? I think somebody screwed up here and it should have gone down instead. Will have to check. Lots of bullshit on this one and no, the price apparently was dropped by $2500 for a Christmas sales event which finished 2 days ago so this one is out!
Well that promotes everybody else and a couple more contenders, as fast as one is sold along comes another to perk my interest.
Frosty Blue, 2008 Vanden Plas
Another Blue, nicely detailed but without the VP trim 2008
So the clock keeps running and I’m not much wiser! Choice 2 went down another $1000 so it’s creeping up in the contest whereas another Green has appeared and a further pale blue is running high on the list.
Green but not the full Vanden Plas
Frosty Blue is making inroads, its a 2008 in full Vanden Plas trim with nice wheels. My other Seacrest Blue has gone down that $1000 but compared to the others does not have Navigation even though I love the color.
Navigation and full VP trim
Well these colors would go with any of the pale blues
Time to get in the workshop and get up there which means unloading all of the outside big Christmas deer and other things I normally only move once a year. Getting excited but I know what disappointments can lie around the corner.
