I test drove a metallic blue X-1/9 when I was 18, loved it, had the cash to buy it in my pocket (3k for a 2 year old car) and then called my insurance broker. They laughed and refused to cover me. Same thing happened a few months later when I found a ten year old E-Type for 1800. B&stards.

I never did get one, or an E-Type for that matter. I'd still like an X-1/9 although the dash is a bit boxy and the bodywork is soluble. Good ones do command a premium, it is, after all, a mid-engined Italian open top Sports car.

There're usually a few 'projects' (basket cases) on ebay, typically none when I checked a minute ago.

This has possibilities though -
