Is E-type fatigue setting in yet?
Wow love those wheels.I remember in the 70`s G H Nolsan the Jaguar parts supplier in London having a Dragster E-type special similar to The
burgandy one pictured.It was on the Dragster scene for many years called The Meth drinker,does it survive today.Would love to hear from anyone
on it`s whereabouts?
God, my eyes!
Talking of E-types in 1977 I bought a early flat floor roadster from Bob Kerr,who lived in Luss Scotland,£300 it was a rolling shell missing it`s bonnet,engine and gearbox and glass.I was approached by a television company who wanted a cheap car to paint and use a s mock car for
the TV series the Professionals starring Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw,recently this series has been shown on ITV 4,the story is about a special security arms that gets stolen.Great car chase with a Porsche 911 S and a E-type V12,the E-type gets it`s brake pipes cut and in the chase crashes and catches on fire it`s the mock up car that then is shown .I was told the producers used a flame thrower from a helicopter.The chassis number 850167,does it still survive today.?
Jagnut 12 seen sitting in 77 RW.In 1967 aged of 12 when pocket money stretched to buying Autosport I saw the car advertised in the classified
pages,I did ask my dad if he would buy it for me and I would pay him back when I started to earn a wage!!,so the chance of sitting in the car was a dream come true!

E-Type fatigue was certainly setting-in at the Silverstone Classic last Saturday.
If you have ever watched Hitchock's film "The Birds" and try to imagine E-Types in place of birds you will get what I mean. I tried to capture a bit of the atmosphere on a video ....
Maybe I'd sooner have this
and certainly this
I'm ashamed to admit I've never even sat in an E-Type. Non sequitur.
Nor had that Cocker Spaniel
Received my Oct issue today here in KY. I tried to explain to my wife how cool the E-Type the 44 page insert booklet was and she got this glazed over look on her face. It was similar to the face I think I get when she shows me shoes she just bought. Keep up the stellar work.
