    I assume your not talking about a classic jaguar. They had some rough years. Built some serious crap in the 90s and 2000s. But the newest cars are at least appealing to look at. Definatly still below average reliability. The newer like 17 or 18+ ingenium motors liscence multiair from fiat.

    Personally I'd buy an equivalent audi or bmw. Jags just aremt nearly as nice. Depreciation is the absolute worst, unreliable. Usually interiors start to really degrade after a few years. They arent very popular for a reason.

    The old e type.was a pretty amazing accomplishment. I think they wemt about 155mph, and besides the 300sl, which was a tube frame lemans race car for the street, nothing could touch them.

    I'd never buy a jag personally, but if I did, it would have to be a 2 or 3 year lease.

    I stopped buying new luxury cars in like 16 and started buying cheap, tiny cars like fiesta st and abarth. Havent missed driving an audi for a daily driver once. I live in an urban area. Easy to park. Dint care if they get scratched and dinged, and nobody tries to rob or carjack a guy in a crappy kittle hatchback.

    That's cool. If you have some scale cars we'd love to see them. We have the scale model forum here: http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/forum...ars-and-Models

    Couldnít afford an e-type, so yeah, it would be early to late 2000ís, which you say are rubbish. Well crap. lol
    Audi and BMW are just soooooooo passť where I live. Yawn. But another unreliable junker I donít need I guess.
    Maybe a nice Avanti?

    Sadly, out of my $$ range: https://losangeles.craigslist.org/ws...076270470.html

    Well, half as much... about 900 pounds.

    I wouldn't say they are rubbish, just expensive to maintain. Older ones, like many expensive cars, often have a lot of neglected maintenance. What I find interesting is the huge difference in pricing. Some of the $40K models appear as nice as the $300K ones. One of my friends used to pick up cherished models of classics, drive them until they fell apart, then turn them for more than he paid. (When I buy, it's just the opposite.)

    Where I worked. One of the creative studio managers bought a late 60’s E type. Was slowly restoring it. Don’t know if he ever finished it. That was 15 years ago.

    While in architecture at college. that scaled model home, in the background, I designed and constructed. Still have that model home in my basement. We’re building a new home, I going to have to down scale all my model cars, cameras, bicycles, vintage cameras, you name it. Before we move.

    Still have that little yellow Jaguar someplace in my office. It could be packup in a box.

    Nice. I thought I remembered you did something with architecture. Good luck with your move. I dread going through all my stuff and downsizing. I have the feeling my wife would toss all my "treasures" in the dumpster. LOL
