#1 First time E-Type owner

Post by Fuel.inj » Wed Oct 07, 2020 8:43 pm

Having owned many classic cars and motorcycles in my lifetime, I finally bit the bullet and bought an E-Type S11 coupe, which I am absolutely delighted with. Thanks for accepting me and enjoying reading all previous contributions.

Welcome to the best place for all things E Type. Your car looks very neat.
Please add your name and car type to the signature area. It’s far nicer to respond by using your real name not user name. And if we know what car you have it’s much easier to address answers that can be specific to model.

And enjoy your car, that’s the most important thing

It’s showing just over 70,000 miles but it has been totally restored by previous owners.
Here are some different angles.
