"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


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 have been a hot rod guy since a kid. One car I have always wanted was a 1936 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe that was ready to go. I found one that was close to my dream car on Classic Car Store’s website. All steel body built from the ground up as a Pro-Touring car and built right. Jim was very helpful, specific and told me the good and bad about the car. I decided to buy it, bought a one-way ticket from Oklahoma to Birmingham, AL. I hoped the car was what it was supposed to be. Jim picked me up at the Airport and took me to the Owner, an elderly gentleman in a small country town. The car was everything represented, much nicer than I expected. After getting the banking handled I made a road trip back home to Oklahoma stopping and seeing a couple of friends on the way back. Not one problem with the car. Overall it was an excellent experience, especially when you are buying a car from photos and getting information from someone you don’t know. If you want a straight shooter when buying a Classic Car, Jim is the man. Thank you, DF-OK

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.
