Hello Osgii, congratulations to you and your wife ! I am sure they will understand as they will grow with it. Start purchasing E-Type toys /models and then share moments with/in the E as soon as you can. I did not start as early with my boys (they were 8 and 12,5) but they helped in some restoration...

Hello Simon, it would be interesting indeed if you could compare your "old" speakers with mine. I agree with your comments on the radio-tape player, I did not mean period/original as early 70's , but more vintage model. And yes the design and LCD is more probably around 80's. Mmmh, I now need to set...

hello, my October 1972 SIII was fitted (an still is ) with the following radio-tape player, which I believe is a period one, most probably fitted by the dealer. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-P7rzsK56rCs/UGswBiYVTjI/AAAAAAAADdE/q_9B5QDtZ5k/s640/DSC03219.JPG the speakers are hidden behind a grill...

A pity. Hopefully you got/will get rain to wash the salt and be able to driev the E again before next year. No salt and no snow yet over here (South of Belgium) . November was very dry and in fact we had rain yesterday (more in one day than over the month ...). Just took the E for an hour drive as t...

So what better than taking us back to the dimly-remembered French lessons of our youth, when the E-type was in production and it was a Stones/Beatles shoot-out in the pop charts every few weeks? on our side it was learning English and also listening to the Beatles, the Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin...
