Classic Car Overview
1972 Jaguar E-Type $98,500
I met the handsome old gent, when Sophie broke down. She was a four-door sedan, and was so very temperamental. And I swear she could hear me talk to her. But, alas, she was not meant for a 25-year-old and so it goes I was spending my weekends at a small shop that was owned by an old English gentleman. He would just shake his head, and say things under his breathe when he saw me coming— but the smile he gave me after I explained the latest drama between Sophie and I was always worth it!
As the deal goes, I had to come into his shop and learn about the car and keep him company while he taught me how to communicate with Sophie, and all her needs. Call it couples counseling.... call it shop talk.... but I did learn more than I can possibly have wished for.
During the times, he had to keep Sophie for sleepovers, and there was quite a few. He would loan me one of his cars.... He had 2 beautiful E-types, and boy--were they grand. Everything about them made me dream I would in own one-- one day. It was going to be called Cyrano, British Green--- and a hard top-- I hated getting my waist length hair all winded!
Eventually Sophie had to be laid to rest, as did my most interesting man in the world.... And I went into wife and mommy made--- SUV's.
But life has it's funny ways, and for my 40th birthday my incredibly loving husband gave me the most beautiful gift. There he was...in my driveway.... Shockingly Red, long nosed, a convertible and in spectacular condition. He was so excited, and secretly although I was so very pleased.... I knew.
Just as my teacher had told me... Wait until you are 60, have no young children and can really spend time with it. I knew.... I was only 40, kids, dogs, horses.... Where and when was I to drive this beauty!? I named him BCyrano.... As he could only wish to be my Cyrano.
Alas, for 10 years I have tried, but I know he needs that special owner to show his stuff and be raced on the road with someone who wants and needs the wind through their hair--- its needs to be someone's special Cyrano.... Just not mine. He can move like he was just born, is as pretty as they come, and handles with ease. He is ready and waiting... And there is no question will make you the talk of the town.
