    "looking to get for $1200 for the car and $300 for the wheels. **stock wheels are not available**"
    I guess you'd better bring wheels or $1500 :wtf:

    "If your not a mustang person this is not for you thanks for looking"
    :rofl:

    I typically search for 68-72 malibus, g bodies, older BOP stuff, and Buick 350 (under auto parts) using search tempest. At least once a week or so.

    So I log back onto my computer after my kid tells me "that jag sold" so I figured I was safe and the first car that pops up is the same 40K mile '98 XJ8 Jag, but now its $2,550 instead of $2,950. Phone Rings. Its my kid. "come on, we got to go check it out", so I take a long lunch.

    Needs typical Jag suspension repairs (its all closed cell foam that only lasts 10-15 years in Texas heat) but the A/C was freezing cold, Tires near new, the Tilt/telescope/sunroof and power seats all worked and the drivetrain starts/runs/drives/feels like a 40K mile car, so I guess I own it, now.

    $2,921.00 total including tax, title license and inspection. New bilsteins for the front, and some other cheap mods/fixes and it my new daily driver.

    When I LS swap my other Jag (XK8) I'll have lots of spare parts to keep this one running for ever (until it needs an LS swap).
