Here is a 1966 Jaguar XKE Series 1 Roadster found for sale in New York. This car came out of an estate and is matching numbers. It is blue with black interior which is one of the best color combinations for the XKE.  Unfortunately the car is not running at this time but it does come with a factory hard top as well.  This wil make a great restoration project.   The series 1 cars with the covered headlights are my favorite.

1958 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark III Found in St Louis
Aston Martin cars are appreciating quickly. This is a Aston Martin DB 2/4 that is for sale in St. Louis. It was posted 11 hours ago and looks to be a good deal that will go quickly. Seller states the car has been completely and correctly restored. It is a show quality restoration. This car is currently at the Amelia Island Concours in Florida. It will be transported to St Louis this week where it will be garaged. The owner lives in Switzerland and the broker handling the transaction wants 5% upfront. It sounds a bid shady and should be checked out thoroughly before handing any money over. If its a legitimate sale and everything checks out this would be a great addition for any collector. An early Aston Martin that is in pieces with no interior and a non running non matching engine already commands $120,000 minimum. You could not restore a car for less than the sellers asking price of $225,000. Please be cautious with this one but some of my best transactions have occurred when I was willing to go the extra mile when no one else bothered to go see it.
