Brenda,

 

I don't think you will agree with my recommendation, but I do have an ulterior motive:  if you sell the Jaguar and keep the Reatta, then we will be sure to have you here in the forum!  You are a valuable member of our little community and we'd like to keep you as long as possible!  😜

 

I might also also try to persuade you that the Reatta has a better upside than the Jag, unfortunately that may only be true because the Reatta currently has such low demand.  Your car is such a high quality example with very low miles that it should be in demand now!!  Sadly, I will not be ready to purchase another '91 Reatta Convertible until mine is worn out and they last a long time with simple maintenance.  I have enjoyed my high mile (over 100,000 miles when I bought it) Reatta but I do wish to buy a low mile version in the next few years for my retirement; sadly, I realize this does not help you now!!

 

You are asking a very reasonable amount of money for one of the finest Reatta left . . . I encourage anybody who is "thinking about it" to act NOW!!!  This fine car will not be there very long as it only takes one buyer to recognize what a nice Reatta her car is!!

I really appreciate your input Nittany. I have really agonized over this decision. Both cars are just perfect, the Jag only has 30,000 miles on it as well. My garage ceilings are too low for a lift. I have a friend who will store the car but it's 2 and a half hours from Phoenix. He will trailer it up there but long term storage just does not seem right, not to mention issues that arise when storing a car for long periods of time. I even contacted the Penske racing Museum here in Phoenix about displaying my 1974 Pace car for a year. Unfortunately, they want the car but it has to be owned by Rodger Penske to be in the facility. I will keep racking my brain how to keep her and promise I will not give it away. If it's still available in a few years that would be just fine, I don't need the money, just the space. Attached are two photo's of the Jaguar, you see why the decision is so damn hard to make??  LOL

Cargirl/Brenda,

 

Buicknutty is 100% correct - your Reatta is beautiful and the Jag is really nice too!!  A very difficult position to be in, and yet the good news is your very special Olds is coming home to your garage. Have no fear, the solution will present itself when the time is right  . . . or when the right Select 60 worms its way into your heart!!  Haha

 

Happy new year and keep driving them till the tires fall off!! 😂
