Re: Built by Many

Should a 1968 have closed headlamps? It has the S1 side/lights etc, yet Looks like a S1.5 with rocker switches, and S2 ribbed cam covers car not listed on XKE data. They have set themselves a challenge selecting this model, will be interesting to see how "correct" they intend to make it. Always good...

Re: Wedding car

The car has their wedding date as a personal number plate, does this mean Harry gets to keep this car?

Re: Insurance

After reading some have used Admiral, I decided to have a look but noticed this on their website... "An agreed valuation of your car up to £25,000 fixed for two years." not much good for an E type then :roll: https://www.admiral.com/classic-car-insurance# I want an agreed valued policy, but I don't ...

Re: Series 1 2+2 values

Bonnet is a series 1
should it not have faired in headlamps then? I see the car has toggle switches so its not a S1.5 ?
is the chrome trim around the headlights a left-hand drive thing?

Re: Another one bites the dust

Surely that's a good thing Chris, it keeps new blood coming in, and gives others the chance to try E type ownership. Before prices went mad, cars would have changed hands much more frequently giving others a chance to own the car of their dreams.

Re: stolen

Mine has to be in the garage if within a mile of my address over night. Mine would not have been covered. That's because when you took out your insurance, you stated that your car is kept in a garage overnight. Because the stolen car was kept in storage, I assume the owner does not have a garage at...

Re: E type tyres and where NOT to buy them

I expect the confusion lies as stated above, longstone tyres are listed as one of the providers giving a discount to members of the "E type club" And with the link and logo above right on these pages, and Dougal from longstone tyres posting on this site, it is rather confusing for new comers. :scrat...

Re: The end for the MOT for vehicles of historic interest

So with the end of the MOT for vehicles over 40 years old it must mean that they will no longer have to be SORN'd? Likewise, I thought the idea of having to have a tax disc, was to ensure the car was MOTed, and insured. If the vehicle is excempt from an MOT whats the point of road tax? What about t...
