2018 VanDusen ABFM

Here is our experience at this year’s VanDusen ABFM.

The Jaguar won ‘Best new car at the show’ which we are very grateful to receive.

Interestingly enough our Restoration category was written about in this exceptional article by :

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/drive/culture/article-at-the-all-british-field-meet-backstory-gives-a-boost-to-restored/

For our car he said there  “wasn’t much of a backstory.” So at least here we get a chance:

We started this car October 5th, 2017 with the request to have the car fully restored by summer so the owner and his aging friend could go on one last epic trip.

It was a tall order, and almost everybody didn’t believe it could be done, but the car was fully stripped, mechanically rebuilt and comprehensively restored in seven months, completed one day before the show.

This was only possible with the talents of:

Dana Ferguson – Owner
Michael Owen – Owen Automotive
Richard Owen – Owen Automotive
Jason Stoch – Jetstream Custom Auto
Sean Barnes – Jetstream Custom Auto
Eli Layfield – Jetstream Custom Auto
Dave – Jetstream Custom Auto

New York Icons XKE sells for $235,200USD

Yesterday RM Sotheby’s sold this fantastic triple-black XKE for $235,200USD at their ICONs sale in New York City.

This particular example, 1E 13575 started out as a low-mileage, rust free, California survivor.

It was completed by Shaun Saunders in Scottsdale, Arizona who is known for his meticulous dry builds. If I could critique one aspect it would be the over-polished intake manifold and carburetor setup.

The $235,200USD was probably a supreme disappointment in New York. A very similar car, known as the Black Beauty sold for $467,500 at the same sale in 2013.
