Re: E-Type major price correction expected?!

I think that for a limited time there will be deflation.

Then they will print, still lots of companies will go bust, and then there will be a strong inflation.

Then there will be a currency reset... and then we all start again from scratch ;-)

Re: 1968 Series II - valuation?

IRS / Rear Axle S2: are there any compatible cars ?

...a friend of mine asked me to look out for an IRS or parts which he needs for a customer who bought an incomplete S2 car. He already has a Diff plus brakes from an XJ6, but nothing more. Iirc the S1 and S2 IRS are the smallest of them all, so from memory nothing would fit- only the S3 axle is wide...

Re: Windscreen scratches

To do this job properly, I’d suggest you’d insure it, throw a stone at it, then call insurance for help....

Out to buy a Miata !

... just went out to Hamburg to buy a very early 1990 Miata. Of course the E is still un-painted, because it is very hard to find someone to be brave enough it seems and not be asking silly money for the job.
