Description
2005 Jaguar X-Type Sportwagon In 2001 Jaguar (Ford) introduced the X-Type saloon, a compact, luxury 4 door, in typical jaguar style. The most interesting factor was the all wheel drive. Just a few years later, in 2005, they offered an estate wagon and this case, a sportwagon. Powered by a 3L V6 that put out roughly 227 HP and 200 lbft of torque, this wagon will go 0-60 in just less than 8 seconds, not too bad for a station wagon. The X-Type sportwagon also came with AWD and all the .....
usual Jaguar amenities. This particular, 4 owner car, in Platinum Silver Metallic (MDZ) over Warm Charcoal leather (LEG), has 118,000 miles and has been well serviced throughout it's life time. Originally sold near Albany, NY, it stayed in that area until 2007 when it migrated into northwest CT and was serviced primarily at Litchfield Ford and other local garages. The current, 4th owner, is a long time Jaguar Club member and in her ownership, has been cared for locally and by several Jaguar club members. The exterior paint is in good condition, with what would be considered normal wear and tear to the paint, a few minor scratches and chips here and there. The passenger fender was replaced two years ago due to a dent that was found to be easier to replace the fender than try to fix. The interior is in very nice shape and all the electronics work. The real wood dash veneer is also in very nice condition. The car is equipped as mentioned, as most Jaguars are expected to be... in plush luxury, driving ability and safety... Or Grace, Space and Pace as the ads of the 60's and 70's represented. Some of the items this car is equipped with: All wheel drive; auto lights, fog lights, special driving lights, Xenon headlights; power steering; power, 4 wheel disc brakes; 17" aluminum wheels, General G-Max tires; rain sensing, intermittent wipers; cruise control; touch screen audio, NAV and climate controls; 8 way power, heated seats; air bags; 6 speed auto-trans with sport mode and "manual shift mode"; power sliding sunroof; premium Alpine stereo system, Sirius satellite radio; fold down rear seats, removable cargo cover, rear netting and on and on. It IS a Jaguar after all. The car runs and drives excellently, accelerates strong and straight and brakes the same. The one issue this car has are two spots of non-structural rot, one on either side, just in front of the rear wheels, hidden up behind the plastic sill plates. Despite that, this car is ready to go and can easily be driven another 100K miles if cared for as well as it has been up to now. Originally priced upwards of $40,000, this car is now available for much less than that and a bit less than most of the pricing guides. $4800 will put this Jaguar Sport wagon in your garage. Any questions, for many more photos and video, to schedule a time to see it in person or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for the interest.

Finding Lost Automotive Souls

It must have started when I was a kid, at 4 years old, lying in a hospital bed, watching my roommate build model cars. I HAD to have a model car too, so my Dad went out and bought me a plastic model of a 1964 MB 230 SL that we built together before I was released; so began my love affair of all things automotive, fast cars, bright colors, loud engines.

My attentions have since "matured" to the subtle lines of a classic Jaguar, the growl of a Ferrari V12, the distinct aroma emanating from the original leather interior of a recently unearthed Cunningham, or cool fall air rushing through our hair as we drive Amelia, our 76 MGB roadster. Not that I don't appreciate the fast cars and loud engines anymore; my palette has simply expanded. To me, an automobile is not merely a mode of transport to bring one from point A to B, but an experience of all the senses.

We have all seen them; some may even have them right now in their own yard: what appears to be the carcass of an old car, wasting away in the side yard, under a tarp, in a barn... These automotive lost souls are what I have set out to save if at all possible. The souls of these relics are the stories that are attached to them through years of ownership, maybe by one person/family or possibly a dozen or more. In some cases, our friend may be too far gone to bring back to road-worthiness, however, many times that is not the case. Once matched up with the next conservator, the motorcar gains a new lease on life as additional memories are instilled upon it.


That is why we do it... What is it that we do?

Archeology is the study of man's past by studying the remains of his culture. Each automobile sitting in someone's yard, barn, garage or under a tarp is a way to dig into the past of the car, it's previous owners, by studying the the stories attached to it... looking into it's soul.

As I travel the back-roads and byways of Connecticut and New England I see many of these aforementioned "artifacts". What I have set out to do is document in photos and text the stories attached to many of these vehicles. If at all possible, to save them from disintegrating into iron oxide dust and put them into the hands of those who will enjoy adding chapters to the story, whether they chose to use the car as a donor so that another may live, or bring the car back and put it back into service. Sometimes, those cars haven't fallen into disrepair and the owners simply want or need to move the car. We're there to assist in putting those cars into the hands of the next conservator.
