Not many I suspect when the conventional wisdom advices against it.


It does make you wonder, up until the new owner comes on here with a long list of problems or it gets relisted, again......

Mostly the young guys from outside the U.K., like our new members from the US and Norway.

I think in the U.K., most buyers still have a fair choice about which example to put their money into. So unless there’s a special reason to buy, like colour, or it used belong to a family member, or simply buying because it’s “local”, then this will likely end up as parts I guess.

Naki, Only going to see “local” cars shouldn’t be decried, it can build up knowledge and experience of viewing cars quickly and without the waste of time ( and expense ) that going to see a car hundreds of miles away ( and being disappointed ) can incur.
And yes we are still lucky to have a huge price range to choose from at the moment, from £300 to £22000, wow :lol:

Sure, it’s convenient to see a local car. But it’s unkilely to be the best example.
Also, if you are searching for something very specific, like a manual for example, you would be lucky to find one anywhere, let alone just down the road.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jaguar-XJ6-T ... SwmBdbi~-G Always good to change search criteria. It's strange to refer to "one" as an XJ6, I suppose it's just habit, an XJ6 is one of those round things....
