They are only worth what someone is willing to pay.

Back in the 90s this car was one of the only 4 seat euro cabriolets that was worthy of holding your Cuban cigars in the armrest. If you already bought the wife a horse, had the kids in private school and you were looking for a third car to drive down to your Ferretti at the harbor with this was it. Not a lot of them came to the U.S., they were built by hand and cost a shitload of coin. If you had wealth you knew that paying twice as much as the other guy did on his XJS was better show than your 18 karat Rolex Sub when gargling Johnnie Walker Blue on the 19th hole.

Now fast forward to 20 years later. It still looks good, drives good, and has this amazing 12 second ballet of brawn that takes the top from up to down. And when the top is down you are driving a sedan with no roof. They are unique and in some cases pretty rare in the U.S. And you can find a nice, reliable one for under 12k. I like it because I have other vehicles that are more modern, go faster and flatter, and are probably going to be more reliable in the long term, but this cabriolet just feels cool. Like pork pie hat Ray Ban Wayfarer cool, Sinatra or Miles Davis cool. Date night cool. Dark two lane roads at night with the foggies on cool. Kinda like a 22ft woody boat, its just a lot of fun to share and enjoy on a sunny day with three other people.

Add the details on the fit and finish, especially the exterior paint, is just miles above my newer vehicles when cleaned up. Definitely not for everyone or something you will see getting huge dollars across the auction blocks anytime soon, but It's a really nice ragtop that was without peer in its day.

Anyone here buys it let me know please.
