Re: Thought and Contemplation

I brought my e type at 56 after always wanting one from my youth. Having had most of the popular cars of the seventies Tr6 triumph stag ,MGB, Jensen healey and a xj12 jaguar but I could not quite stretch to an e type.The closest I got to buying a e type was when I went to view one at steve Barratts ...

Re: The Great MoT Confusion

Hi everyone,Rob Gill here.
Had mine MOT,d the weekend it passed no problems.
Personally i think it makes good sense to have a critical eye look over your car at least every 12 months.
Lets be honest they are masterpieces so why not? :bigrin: :bigrin:
