1992 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas


Asking Price: $3,000

Another one that falls outside the "cheap to fix" category... the 1992 Jaguar XJ6s have a lot to offer, especially the one pictured here, which has "fewer than 75,000 miles." In 1990, they got the 4.0-liter inline six, with 223hp, and have a much better, Bosch-based electrical system than any Jaguar that preceded it. XJ40 Jaguars came with a ZF 4HP24E9 transmission, which can be a weak point. Used units are pretty plentiful, but it's not cheap if you plan on having someone else do it. With a set of snows, the XJ6 can be a fabulous winter beater. Look for rust in the frame horns before you buy, though.
