E’sy money

I am thinking of buying a Jaguar FHC E-type. Where do you think we are in the price cycle? Going up, going down or static? Do E-types conform to the principle that a winter purchase would be cheaper?

Going up. Money is once again searching for tangible investments and the right old cars are going up far faster then gold and real estate. In October, Barons sold a 1970 Jaguar E-Type S2 2+2 for £10,250 + commission and a 1971 Jaguar E-Type S3 Roadster for £35,000 + commission.
