This is adorable.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-fiat-128-2/

really cute

Including the variants made in Argentina, Yugoslavia, and South Africa, the 128 has probably been available in more body-styles than any other car.

FIAT 128 - Italy

2-door sedan
4-door sedan
2-door fastback coupe
3-door fastback hatch/coupe
2-door wagon

FIAT 128 - Argentina

4-door wagon

ZASTAVA 101 - Yugoslavia

3-door hatchback
5-door hatchback
2-door pick-up (a 2-door FIAT 128 p/u was also built in South Africa).

Used Acura RLX's continue to seem like very compelling values.

 :iagree:

Me too.  I kept an eue open for one of those when i was shopping last spring but they are like hens teeth in availability.  I like a nice sleeper sedan and that a good example.

Wow...hard to believe the XF came out in 2008.  Still a sweet looking car.  But...is it "a Jag"  :'( or is it better?  :D Is it befallen with FBC? Or are they actually quite reliable and easy on the (snicker...stupid question) pocket book?  I was looking at Lexus because AB then looking at reviews and the XF was one that came up in MT's reviews as a competitor for an LS460,so I couldn't stop looking at XF's.

Seems like it might not be bad for a 385 hp luxury sports car. $19,995, maybe the colour sucks.

But then I R..R...R..RemembeRed!  XFRrrrrrrrrrrrr....and saw this!  Well worth the additional $5g, assuming it's legit and clean.
2010 Jaguar XFR $25,000, nicer colour too.


Nice bum, too.


Hmmmmm...or maybe this one.  AWD and a 340 hp V6. A $75,000 car...3 yrs old...and yours for the price of a new Accord.  Hmmm...I mean it's not a Fusion...but it's pretty darn nice, right?
2015 Jaguar XF 3.0 SUPERCHARGED / AWD $34,495

There's probably a reason.  But, for someone that's willing to undertake the risk of it, that's a lot of car for the money.  Poor original owner, lost a LOT of money.  If the dealer is selling for $25K, trade value was probably $12K.

Non-R XF's are common in the city; no thanks. They blend in with every other mid-range sedan on the road and reek "entry level Jag".

I agree with the comments that there are some dubious things about the paint, but unless the owner is really seeking 100pt Concours pricing, that's no big deal.

I'd store the 14" wheels/tires and look for some 15" OE or OE-style wheels that I could fit "correct looking" tires that were real modern tires.  And then enjoy it.  It's not fast, but would be a lot of fun to own.

It's not often that I have a truck crush moment, but this is one:
