Hi All,
Just a little update.
I was unable to see the car due to holiday things.
When I called the owner and left a message, the post disappeared from Craigslist. Oh well.
One missed opportunity just allows me to continue the search.
Someday the right vehicle will appear and I will not hesitate. It might even be a V12.

Hopefully, somebody on this forum here in SoCal is the proud new owner.
Cheers,
John

Best of luck John, I am confident that there will be another one, perhaps even better out there for you to find. Had an interesting conversation the other day that some of us here might find intriguing (regarding V12's). A fellow I was chatting with is considering fitting 12x Mikuni (motorcycle) carburettors to a V12 XJ Series 2 here. From our short discussion, he related that apparently Mikuni have a carburettor that is made to be a direct replacement for the SU HS8? often fitted to Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Anyone from the US familiar with that? I am intrigued... the roar of that engine with carburettors x12 would be something special to hear!
