Craig, just note that when you click, you get an option to "re-size" the photos. I find that if I don't, I sometimes get problems. I click re-size, and then choose "for 19" monitor" and it works fine (normally!)

Great looking car Craig. Your first E-Type or are you a veteran?

First ever E type, but been considering for a number of years, I have other classic cars and restored a few myself but I can see why people consider these as a special car..

Very nice example and you must be a very proud owner. I’ve always wanted an E-Type ever since I were an apprentice in the early 70’s and after loads of MG’s, Triumph’s, Lotus’s, Healey’s, Gilbern’s and Morgan’s I have achieved my ambition and I am not disappointed. Good luck with your new steed.
