Agreed, on both counts. However, I won't be getting it, it seems. A museum is really working to get it, and even though I was in before them I'm going to back out. A car that rare and historically important needs to be at a place where people can see and appreciate it. I love rare, exclusive cars as much as the next person, but with that vehicle I'd have to take special considerations, and really wouldn't be able to do what I want with it. So, Muscle Car City in Florida, you owe me one.
On the other side, we're GTG on the Dubai deal(s). They agreed to sell the XJ220 by itself, kinda, they also have some engine blocks, heads, and other mechanicals that we can use, including a V12 from a Murcielago LP640, so I'm getting those as well. My minion is going over there with backup to finalize that. Yes, Dubai... I'm actually a little jealous right now.
Fans of the Doctor, check this out. It's awesomely cool!
Any chance you could negotiate a deal to take body molds off of it?
Love to see what you and your lads can cook up for the Jag. A lot of wiggle room in that car for playing around.
Slick Dr link.
