1969 Jaguar E-type Series II Roadster and 1965 Austin Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8

Why do we buy 30, 40, 50 year old cars? Well it is not for transportation. It is about a memory. That car you should have never sold; that car that you have imagined owning all your life or is it because that car and memory are so entwined that they become one?

In my case it is a little bit of all these things. I had the pleasure of coming across Marc’s website and then had the good fortune of meeting Marc. Now I have bought over the years a lot of cars….some late models and some classic cars. I get sold on the person way before I get excited about the car. When I met Marc, I knew I had met someone I could trust. With that question out of the way, I could focus on finding the car that filled that distant memory.

In my case it was a Pale Primrose 1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster. One very important piece of the puzzle was a working armrest glove box. You see that is where I pulled out the engagement ring when I proposed to my wife over 40 years ago. These memories you don’t just trust with anyone and with Marc Corea the memory is secure.

I also bought earlier in the year a 1965 Austin Healey 3000… that memory I’ll keep to myself…..
