Well, I’ve officially become a guy I never thought I’d be: a guy selling his vehicle because his wife is having a baby.

Last night, I listed my Jaguar for sale on eBay. Here’s the listing:

It’s a great car, but I just feel bad that it spends so much time sitting. So add that to the fact that I could use the money to get a) baby stuff, b) paint for the P71, and c) a much cheaper third/toy car...I guess it’s just time.

I listed it back in June, but decided against selling it. I had started the auction low, and it was getting near to my reserve ($6000) when I shut it down. This time, I’m trying a Buy-It-Now with a best offer option. I’m not interested in selling the car for $800, $1400, $2500, $3200, whatever. I’d like $6000 or somewhere right around there, I think it’s probably worth more than that, but it needs a little bit of work in the form of a voltage regulator and a fuel tank changeover valve.


So here I am. 30 years old, married, selling my car because of a baby I haven’t even met yet. But I know it’s the right thing to do...I mean it’s the right thing to do for the car, to get it in the hands of somebody who has time for it. Doesn’t mean I like it, but I understand it.
