#1 Hello from France

Post by TheAngel » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:16 pm

Hi All,

My name is Michel, leaving east of France, at the border with Germany and Switzerland.

I'm the owner of an E-Type 4.2 OTS Serie 1 in Opalescent Silver Blue from 1966 that is running very well.

Welcome, bienvenue Michel,
You obviously live in a region which is great for touring and you see to have a lovely car.
Would be happy learning a bit more about your history with the car and looking forward to future exchange on this precious forum.

Hi Ralph,

My car was imported from USA in 1996 and is in Europe since... but don't really have the history of his life in USA. The car is fully matching, and I improved the cooling with some parts from Fosseway and Cambridge Motorsport. I also refreshed the interior with nice leather from Suffolk & Turley, really nice stuf.

Hi Michel, and welcome to the forum. A nice looking car, and a great photo of it in the countryside.

Hi Michel,
are you a member of the ECJA/Alsace Jaguar club?
I'm quite often around Germany/Basel and also have an E Type.
Maybe we'll meet at one of the ECJA's meetings?
best regards
