#1 Hello from New Zealand

Post by nzmike » Tue Oct 01, 2019 7:10 am

Hello all, I have just purchased my first E Type, an S1 4.2 FHC in Golden Sand, here in New Zealand. It have just returned from a 2000km round trip to trailer it home - its in good order but has done minimal mileage in recent years so a trailer was the safe bet. Looking forward to learning more from this forum.

Welcome. You will find this forum invaluable as you get your fabulous S1 back on the road. Keep the pics & updates coming.
What trim colour?
It’s an incontrovertible fact that Opalescent Golden Sand is the best colour for an E-Type. :dance:

Ah, a Jafa! :bigrin:
Love Auckland. In fact, I love all of NZ. Worked there North and South Island in the Merchant Navy, and was back there recently staying with a friend in Hauraki Road Takapuna - North Shore City?
Must be great driving an E over there on your roads
