Re: Bad day for Jaguars

Interesting comments and perspective. If anyone is interested, here is what I am seeing. 1. There are plenty of bad cars that owners seem to think are worth a lot of money (they see a £300k Evolution E Type or Eagle, a CMC early car for >£250) and think their own 'run of the mill' car is worth that....

Re: Open Day April 2019

Just had note from Steve asking if it will be possible for forum attendees to bring along any items (E Type related) they have for sale.

This is a great idea and I have no problem with this so feel free. (Obviously any sales will be subject to a 10% fee plus VAT - :lol: ).

Re: Phone / sat nav adaptor

Has anyone installed a power supply that actually charges a sat nav using a cable and not the one that comes with the unit (ie the one that plugs into the cigar lighter)?

Re: Hi everyone I’m the new owner of an e type

Steve, anyone who is telling you that you can have the car restored for £60k is delusional. Try and sell it to someone who is an enthusiast who will restore the car. Let it go cheaper than market price to the right person (the right person is someone who will cherish and keep the car plus include yo...

Re: Hi everyone I’m the new owner of an e type

What you have has a value. I’m not sure if breaking it would yield more than if it was sold as a barn find restoration project. An original, RHD FHC in that condition has be worth north of 20k. You can achieve the highest price by doing all the work yourself (ie packing up the parts, ensuring all Th...

Re: Series 2 DHC Blue Reg 3WBJ - Circa 1980

Doesn’t appear to restrict airflow Simon. It’s where the original plate was fitted in the US so I just carried on the tradition. The bonnet had all the fittings in place to accept fitting the plate here and it hinges when you open the bonnet.
