Broken In - not Worn Out
Leaving Well Enough Alone: The Rise of the Unrestored Collectible - Today As Good As News features a moderately dull Automobile section story on leaving the classics alone. Forget it - I'm running late. Today's post is really a photo - because it is beautiful, and a want ad. How do I get this car, a 1957 Jaguar XKSS, never restored but in great condition. The XKSS was the ultimate car of its time, essentially a street version of a Le Mans racer. After giving the matter serious consideration, I am not prepared to offer any family member in exchange for this vehicle but all other suggestions will be taken under advisement. Respond now by comment to As Good As News.
