Unrestored 1952 Jaguar XK-120 for sale on From the seller’s description:

Stored in Atlanta, GA for three years, this car was purchased in 1969 by a small town banker in Southwest Virginia who drove it to work and entered it in local car shows where it never failed to “steal the show.” After his death in 1986, his widow stored it (under a blanket) in her garage where it slept until rudely awakened in 1998 when a heavy snowstorm collapsed the garage roof resulting in damage to the car’s windshield. The car returned to slumber until 2015 when it was pampered by an expert in British car restorations in Danville, VA who:
