[E-Type] Speaking of BJ...too many Jags?

Hi,

Noticed everyones’ comments about the nice driver e-types selling for $20-30k at BJ. Went to the BJ website to view auction sale results for myself.

Noticed two things:

  1. The nice driver e-types sure had some obvious needs that made then not “nice” drivers in my opinion. Didn’t look at them all but one red e-type couple had noticably flat paint - on non hi-def photos!

  2. And that’s my second point - there were at least 200 Jags listed for auction at BJ and the vast majority of these e-types.

So could the great prices reflect 1) not so really nice drivers and 2) too many Jags for sale at this one event - supply and demand?

Has anyone actually seen 1 or more of the nice drivers in person and not just on low-def tv photos or website photos?

Chas

I must be missing a ‘‘secret’’ part of the BJ auctions because
I only saw a handful of Jaguars. I did a search on the BJ
site and the list 14 Jaguars of all types. Where did you
find the 200?–

Me too, I immediately went and looked for all these e-types, and
only came up with a few.

Are you looking only in 2007, or back for the last 10 years?–

You must be looking at results for all of their auctions for
the past couple years. There were 14 total at Scottsdale,
including XKs and at least one XJS.–
