Cool story. I'm surprised the article didn't mention the XK-SS. Those auctions are a joke. They are for greed enthusiasts who enjoy displays of excess.

Stupid amount of money?
The linked article is from the '90s when the lo-drag was auctioned for 815,000. Nowadays, you'll get a replica E-type for a cool million or so.

I think it depends on the E-type.

About a year ago I passed on a 2+2 for $20somehting k. Car was perfect...past perfect and even had a period installed AC that actually worked.

Sometimes I think I should have bought that car, but at the time I was having second thoughts on all the old cars I have that are not driven, and figured I would drive it for a week and let it sit.

I can see one day this being my son selling off all the crap I have.....If I don't end up getting rid of it myself and getting that new (whatever) with all the modern creature comforts.

But I do know that sometime after I die there will be a post floating around on that full on race Opel that some old hermit had in a trailer. Amazing thing has a one off crank that alone cost $4k, and me move on from there.
