Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL


"I've known Jim Lowrey for almost 30 years and have always respected him as the most knowledgeable and experienced person I knew when it came to cars. Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, AL


Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS


Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

1959 Jaguar XK150S Drophead Coupe with Matching Numbers

This rare 1959 Jaguar XK150 S 3.4 Litre Drophead Coupe is a remarkable survivor that retains its original matching numbers engine and has been under the same ownership since 1966. Throughout this incredible 57-year ownership, the Jaguar was treated as a member of the family and diligently maintained. While used regularly for a number of years, including a trip to the East Coast, written notes on file show that in 1988 its odometer read 56,200 miles, just shy of the 56,411 the odometer currently shows. The Jaguar shows a patina from its careful use and retains many original finishes, including the vast majority of its original paint. Offered with its Heritage Certificate and tool kit. After years of static storage, it will require mechanical attention prior to road use. The S model benefits from a revised cylinder head and three 2" SU carburetors to produce 250hp, a full 60 hp more than the standard car, and 40 hp more than the mid-range 3.4 SE. According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate on file, this DHC was built on January 26, 1959, and shipped to distributor Jaguar Cars in New York finished in black with a black top and black leather interior. With just two owners from new and single ownership since 1966, this unrestored matching numbers XK150 S DHC represents a rare and exciting opportunity for any Jaguar enthusiast or collector alike.
