Five Affordable Modern Classic Automobiles Tacoma Lakewood Puyallup

In September of 2015, Yahoo! Autos came out with their selection of the top five Modern Classic. They suggested that these cars are gaining momentum in popularity and could be the cars that thirty of forty years from now you'll gick yourself for purchasing when you you could afford them. What's a little strange is that each of these classics has direct ties to classics from years gone by: Jaguar, Porsche, Cadillac, Thuderbird, and Mercedes-Benz. Perhaps, the Tesla is out of the range of most purchasers . . . or perhaps it just needs a little more time to become a Modern Classic

Jaguar XK150 Tacoma - Image.The car I continually kick myself over not buying is the Jaguar XK-150. When I was in college I narrowed down my choices to four cars: a Jaguar XK-150, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, a 1959 Chevy Impala with the 409, and a 1961 Austin-Healy Bug-Eye Sprite. I bought the Sprite, still a collector's item, but without the cachet of the Jaguar. Eventually, I did get a Jaguar XK-160. I traded the a down payment in three houses for the Jag and later traded the beautiful maroon coupe to a friend as down payment for different six houses. I still am saddened that I passed on the XK-150. Maybe I'll find something in this new list to purchase to make me feel better.


Jaguar XJS Tacoma - Image.1. The Jaguar XJS was a luxury grand tourer with its roots from the golden age of GTs. The XJS come both in convertible and coupe form and sports lots of chrome, wood and leather. They came with either V-12 power or as a six-cylinder. It was manufactured from 1975 to 1996. The XJS replaced the E-Type (XKE). It didn't have the sport car look of the XKE, but was more aerodynamic. The last XJS was produced in April of 1996. 115,413 XJS models were produced during its 21-year life. A September 2015 search on Craigslist showed available models from $2500 to $25,000 (1989, V-12 convertible with 66,000 miles).


Porsche 968 Tacoma - Image.2. The Porsche 968 is a luxury sports car produced by Porsche AG from 1992 to 1995. It followed up the 944 as the entry-level position in Porsche's lineup. The 968 shared approximately 20% of its parts from the 944. The 968 was the last of that 20 year line. With its front-engine, water-cooled four-cylinder, many say that this model was the best driving and handling automobile of the Porsche line. At the time, the 968's engine was the second-largest production car four-cylinder ever offered. The 968's 6-speed manual transmission replaced the 944's old 5-speed. The 968 came in either coupe or cabriolet. A Google search in September 2015 showed two 1992 68 convertibles for $5,995 and $9,995.


Cadillac XLR-V Tacoma - Image.3. The Cadillac XLR is a luxury roadster (two-seat convertible) produced by Cadillac from 2006-09. It was supposed to be Cadillac's flagship sports car, and a follow-up to the Pininfarina-designed Allante. I've considered purchasing the Allante, but the convertible top was rarely used by owners here in the Pacifc Northwest and was always moldy even when rarely or "never used." The XLR was based on the Chevrolet Corvette's Y platform, but with a supercharged Northstar V-8 added. The XLR ran a sub-5-second 0-60 time. You don't need to worry about a moldy convertible top, the XLR featured a power-retractable aluminum hardtop. Supposedly only 2,500 XLRs were produced. A Carsforsale.com search in September 2015 showed 11 XLRs for sale from $39,888 (2006 - 27,780 miles) to $52,995 (2007 - 17,189 miles).


2005 Thunderbird Tacoma - Image.4. The retro-styled 11th generation Ford Thunderbird did not see initial success in the marketplace. The Ford Motor Company gave it a minimal marketing campaign. The car is desireable (2002-05) for two reasons - Poor sales means relative scarcity, and demand now for a nice looking sporty luxury car that is a pleasure to drive. The throwback styling and sales resulted in being named on Car and Driver magazine's 2009 list of "The 10 Most Embarrassing Award Winners in Automotive History." A September 2015 search on Craigslist showed more than a dozen available models from $9,500 to $30,000 (2002, 450 miles).


Mercedes-Benz R129 SL Tacoma - Image.5. Mercedes-Benz R129 SLs stay around, but could be hard to find on the market. They were produced from 1990-2002. The R129 replaced the R107, which lasted from 1971-89. Th SL Class, Spotlich-Leight, or Sport Lightweight or roadster was first applied to the 300SL (also known at the "Gullwing") with its upward-opening doors. The R107s have "collector" written all over them and now the R129 is following suit. The R129s came with six, eight and twelve-cylinder engines. The R129s are complex and need reliable maintenance and repair. But the look says it all. No American locations showed up with R129s in a September 2015 Google Search.

As you can see, most of these affordable modern classics are still readily available here in the Puget Sound region while a couple are not. From $2,500 to over $50,00 you can find investments in automobile history that might treasure you can afford. You can save money by working and restoring on your own, but when you need the help of an expert . . . remember All Transmissions & Automotive.
