In my case the XK 19 would be renamed Beautiful Pamela. We've all tried that. I think we're all in the same Boat, literally and figuratively. But it's a good thing. She has kept me reeled in over the years, and not just with the boats. There's also be a lot of cars that should have been scraped and several old houses that belonged in the dumpster. Luckily I never learned how to fly. Shes a patient woman. Anyway, I think I'll pass on the Maine XK. Not even going to show it to her because I know I will get the Look. Could be a little wiggle room for the Canadian 22, but I should probably go with Oberons advice and cast a wide net and take my time. The search continues...............

How about a yellow Lancer?

It's in your neck of the woods and cheap!

The Lancer is interesting. Check out the XK 22 on Craig's list MA Cape Cod and Islands. Search Boat Nantucket. Tell me what you think. I'm planning a trip over there this week.

Post a link, I don't know if I am finding it.

What is this though? Looks interesting, but with a curved windshield it may be newer than you are looking for. :?

You found it. Definitely a Xk 22 , but I don't know what year. When did production stop on this model? It looks pretty hard , but it might be a good original. Depends on what's missing and what's been changed. Like to find a matching numbers mostly original project. Being that I am a Cheap Yankee and I know what a restoration costs in money and time , whatever I end up with has got to be a deal. We'll see. The search continues........
