After 49 years of selling cars as a dealer here in upstate NY, I have found the car of my dreams. As many of you know of me in the collector hobby and world of Rolls-Royce and Bentley, hear this.
For 29 years I sold just Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars to folks all over the country. They were great cars but after a ride in a friend’s new '95 Jaguar XJS I knew I wanted one for myself. Years passed and my searching around led me to the 23,000 mile '95 XJS and I bought it sight unseen. It had just won first place at The British Invasion at Stowe, VT. The fellow who had it was a collector who bought it from the original collector owner.
When it arrived it was simply "as new". One drive around Seneca Lake had me convinced. This is the car of my dreams, having owned Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari, Aston Martin cars, none can compare. The styling, the burled walnut, the smell. Having the bulletproof 4.0 six cyl was indeed a "plus". It is a true high speed touring car which is both stylish and comfortable, with a huge trunk.
The car of my dreams is here, and at 73 ready and to retire, I will enjoy this grand tourer for many years...
