    The owner is deluded if they think it’s worth 80 thousand. It does not matter how much time and effort and money was put into this project, it’s not worth even close to 80 thousand.
    I see the current e-bay bid is 6100, that’s more like it.

    I’m not Jaguar purist but this thing is an absolute abomination.
    80K? Not only does the owner have bad taste but he’s a moron as well.

    Just goes to show – if you’ve been doing it for 40 years, doesn’t mean you are good at it!!!
