    1989 Honda Prelude. I'm probably going to sell this in the spring.


    1994 Subaru SVX. I also have a 1992 that looks just like it. These are both project cars - hopefully they'll run again one day


    1988 Trans Am GTA. Had this since college, currently in Michigan getting a 383 stroker, subframe connectors, new trans, the works. Can't wait to get this one back.


    1994 BMW 840Ci. My daily driver year-round except for winter or when it's down because I'm working on it. I removed the silly sunroof wind deflector and dorky front license plate frame almost immediately after buying it.

    Don't believe everything you "heard". Owning a Jag ourselves, they are great automobiles. As far as problems, the electrical "nightmares" are a thing of the past, Jaguars were pretty much fixed after Ford had bought the marque.

    Heres the wifeys:

    nice...i was in HS in 86 when our friends parents had an XJ8..they had tons of cash..and the dad hated the jag, told his wife not to get it because of electrical history..long story short- they had to make an emergency stop on the Parkway, where it subsequently burned to a crisp.

    Ever thought of making it into a kitt car replica(yes it can be done as I have seen one in person)
    The trans am GTA's along with the Formula Firebirds of that generation are the only ones worth money as they were special options...you'd never want to make a kitt out of a gta..

    I almost picked up an '89 XJS V12 as a project a few years back, (running and driving, not wrecked or rusty, $900!) but decided against it due to lack of time / space. I've always loved those, but god the horror stories you hear about '80s Jaguars! I did also hear that Ford fixed the electricals when they acquired the brand, but I've never owned one (old or new) to have any firsthand experience.

    The 3rd gen F-body that is really worth some cash these days is the '89 Turbo Trans Am - They only made about 1500 or so, and they had the turbo 3.8 V6 out of the Grand National in them. Last I looked, decent examples were selling for $15 - $25k all day long depending on condition / mileage. Even ratty ones go for close to $10k.

    Re: What else is in your stable?

    Yes it's great! I like it a lot. I am a big guy and I fit in it pretty good,, better than a vette. It doesn't see as much action as it could, I seem to have a heavy work life also but the wife enjoys it from time to time.
