Re: Hi I am a recent member living in Cornwall

Many thanks, Peter. I will be finding out my results very soon so I will let you all know!

Working hard to try and get there and get my E-Type on top of hopefully doing alright for myself!

Re: Hi I am a recent member living in Cornwall

Welcome to the forum, Peter. Sounds like an ideal setup with your two cars. I look forward to hearing about your stories on and off the road.

Out of pure (scientific) curiosity, from one scientist to another, what "instruments" did you make?

Re: Found my original add wow

Very good point, Darren. I intend on getting there. I need to be a successful organic chemist before that. Working on that will get me a good career and the potential to work on an ambition. Hopefully! I’m doing all I can for my future at the moment, not just for an E-Type

Re: Found my original add wow

14K for a lovely E-Type..

I'm part of the wrong sodding generation! :lol:

I hope values come down to a "sensible" level so that I will actually be able to afford one someday.

Re: deagostini etype jaguar

I know Mark, scary, isn't it? And thank you :bigrin: I would like to make it a full-sized E but I still fear that it's a long way off. Trying to sort my next career move out but not getting anywhere at the moment. There is no money nor confidence in chemistry in our country at the moment, and I have...

Re: deagostini etype jaguar

Hi (whatever your name is?) I am also a big fan of 1:8 E-type models - I made the old Monogram 3.8 FHC a few years back and converted it to RHD plus gave it working lights. Here's the article I had in the Club magazine a while back: https://i.imgur.com/3ett0H2.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HtayuvZ.jpg And...

Re: CLASSIC CAR CLUBS

I enjoy contributing to the magazine and since I am not directly involved in restoring my own car I don't provide the marketing ploys :lol: . They're always on the look-out for stories about trips out, tours, whatever we all get up to. I bet if everyone has one interesting story to put into words th...

Hi Brian I second the E-type Club as being a great club for drivers and enthusiasts - even for the young ones among us! I have always enjoyed E-type Club days out, organising my own run for them along with my friend has been great fun (5th year running this year,, updates soon!) and the people are g...

Re: Open Day at e-Conic Cars (Moss Jaguar)

Sorry gents (and particularly to Angus), but I'm afraid I'm going to give this one a miss now :sad: I've got a sickening amount of uni work to do and it's a fair return trek, which would be quite a decent amount of studying time lost. The weather looks properly naff too. It'll not be a particularly ...

Re: Bruce McLaren #15 E-type

I am well aware of the sheer effort, determination and financial commitment to the restoration of an E-type, having seen two at that standard first-hand with one being worked on sporadically by myself. If and when I am fortunate enough to be able to have an E-Type I intend on driving the nuts off it...

Re: Bruce McLaren #15 E-type

I am only picking fault in this case since if the car is being sold for the rumoured amount (and given its history) then I’d want everything to be correct! Assuming it’s a concourse car - if I were to drive it then maybe certain things may be changed. Richard’s cars are not perfect - there are sensi...

Thanks, Ralph - I guess I've learned something on here :lol: Isn't the air plenum correct, without the strengthening ribs? Saying that, are those the weedy looking repro wing nuts on the air plenum too? Also, your reference to the upper door chrome trim; I presume you're referring to the interior an...

Re: Bruce McLaren #15 E-type

There's one or two I could find (at least to the "untrained" eye - I reckon I've done my apprenticeship by now :wink: ). 1) Incorrect spark plug caps - should be Champion "dot" for the early cars 2) Marston radiator tag facing the wrong way - it should be read from the front of the car 3) Coopers ai...

Re: Open Day at e-Conic Cars (Moss Jaguar)

My master's thesis gets handed in on 27th March - I will deserve a day off by then. Richard is away sorting his boat out but I'm up for coming down. I may be able to convince my Dad to come but I'm not sure. David Jones (I like my bacon crispy please!) Nick Lynch Geoff Hughes (I'll be expecting an E...

New E-Type Facebook Group

There has recently been a Facebook group (and website) created for the specific documentation of the 3.8 RHD FHCs, supposedly in more detail and with more stories behind each car, and indeed there have been some nice stories and photos. The chap running the site (Gary Oxley) has clearly put a lot of...

Be careful down there, Carsten. We don't want you dropping off the edge. I wonder if Simon S-Y has adjusted to the constant rush of blood to the head he must get, given that he's an expat?

Re: early series 1 chassis numbers

Do you often find that your opinions on what is more valuable are often influenced by whatever anyone else thinks? OK, it’s also influenced by rarity, all the different specs and what have you (which is why flat floors are so valuable) but it could also be broken down into something simpler. Take fo...

24th is perilously close to my final masters thesis hand-in (27th) so couldn't possibly commit to that at this stage. The 31st looks good, or a weekend in April perhaps. By all means, the last person you should be considering is me but I would like to come! I will float the idea to Richard, see if h...

Once upon a time he did work for Derek, Stuart, although he has been independent for a while now IIRC.
