Saw this on eBay...

Thought a historian, or an owner(?) might be interested... Wouldn't this be great if it was somebody here's car?

John Herd in TN owned the car in 2003. Frank, if you are in touch with him, let him know. Rocky, what's the link to the ebay ad?

I guess John.... Herd!

:D

Rocky

(Actually, that would be really cool if the owner of the car was reunited with an old title. Maybe someday we might find out!)

I added the back just for posterity.

Hi Grant -

"Frank" refers to Frank Schwartz, the East Coast guy who knows every Jensen owner in the USA.

"John" is John Herd - the last known owner of this car from back in 2003. John heard (get it? ) from Frank that his old title was up for sale. Who else would’ve spent $100 on such a piece of paper?

Not sure who "Richard" is.... :D

And "Rocky" is just some guy who spends way too much time on the Internet.

But we love you for that Mr RockyManImage
I think with the way the Internet is now Rocky and all the facebook/Insta stuff etc without the usual's on here, there wouldn't be a JOC forum. We must thank Keith for setting it up.. This is for you Keith in the background there.. I know you will read this so here you go >>> Image so.. thank you too Rocky for your contributions and all the other regular Chaps that are reading this tooImage, I think as DunckyMan said not so long ago.."We're still doing alright here on our forum" as many have now collapsed due to facebook etc, .. Other forums I used to be quite active on are now dead now.. so keep em coming Rocky Balboa :P ... :wink:

Presumably, 15 years after it was last heard of, Richard still owns the car?

Hi Grant -

I agree with you (especially with the part about thanking Keith), and I'm not trying to start a controversy, but I might suggest that our demographic, and the cost of our cars (which is a high barrier to entry for the "Facebook Crowd") may explain our forum's "vibrancy".

My guess is that the majority of the members here... No let me describe myself - over 50, "early adopter" of email / interweb forums like this, but resistant to adding a lot of "Apps", like Instagram, FaceBook, Snappy-Cat (Snapchat) and Twitter to my digital arsenal. Happy here because I understand the technology and enjoy the experience. It's easy to understand and use.

I am guessing that if 30-somethings (instead of old guys like me) had lots of Jensen cars (even if they are Jensen-Healeys) in their garages, then this forum wouldn't be motoring along so smoothly.

But I might be wrong.

I'm just saying I'm an old dinosaur, who's ship has passed him by, and should be put out to pasture*. That's why I drive an Interceptor!

* NOTE: That is what my daughters think of me.

Rocky
