Default Anyone interested in Jaguars, AC's or Allards?

New member here, I was just looking back at a trip I did for my local Cobra club. I though it would be cool to share the incredible Jim Taylor's Auto Collection in Gloversville, NY. I knew he had two original Cobras (289 & 427) but was surprised to find he added an AC Ace Bristol to his collection. His Ace is a barn find from the great state of Delaware and shows all of the patina it acquired of the last 57 so years. Mechanically it is 100% but Jim loves original unrestored automobiles and will keep it this way.



Here he has the three lined up in a perfect row. 427 Street, 289 Street and Ace Bristol



Rear view (notice the Jaguar D-type (Blue), C-type replica (his real C-type in flying back from Italy after he ran it in the Mille Miglia) Chrysler Hemi power Allard (white/red)



Low level shot and barn find 100% original 1965 Shelby 350 in the background.



That's spelled P-A-T-I-N-A!


Knucklehead nobody, "Jim, do you mind if I sit in the Bristol?" Rich Millionaire, "Not at all, help yourself." Knucklehead nobody, "Boy is this going to be great!"

Here's a few more:



Jaguars XK's, The black one is an ulta-rare alloy bodied (1 of 242?), the Ford GT is the only car in the collection he will not drive (12 miles). Don't worry he has a white/blue GT that he drives.



Jim told us a story about his D-type; he was offered 6 million for the car and turned it down. He said' "I'm not ready to sell" but "Maybe, I'll put a 10 million price on it and see if anyone bites."



Aston Martins: The green DB7 Zagato Coupe was once owned by Rock great Eric Clapton.



More Astons and Jags



Evel Knievel's last Harley-Davidson



Close up of his Allards



1,700 mile Boss 302



Unrestored Boss 429

ENJOY!

Wow! What a collection.

Love the brace of ACs a lot.... That Ace with the patina was a great looking machine. Oh and the Jag XKs ...

I had better step away from the screen
