A friend of mine (actually a former boss) bought a jag dealership in
ottowa when he retired and flogs off xj6s and the like to canadians but
as a side business he has a shop in new hampshire that only restores XK
cars - seem to recall he told me they cost 40-50k to restore and he sells
them at 60-80k!!!- apparently it all depends if the numbers match!
He will have 2 or 3 cars at the Greenwich CT concours june 6th and he
isnt the sort of mn who comes to lose!
I know he has a website though i dont have the URL handy - search 
jaguarsof ottowa and you'll likely find it
