Bonjour à tous et toutes,

So i write in English rather. Not realy easy for me , i lack practice.
I am Jaguar lover since....1972. The first car was one 240 1968 opalescent silver blue.
Keeped ten years, many memories!;
After 5/6 years picture interruption, several Jags....
XJ12 S2, XJ6 S1, MK2 3.8, E type FHC V12, XJ6 S2;
Now the time has passed,
i have the same MK2 3.8L racing 1964 and one E type 3.8L OTS flat floors 1962.
That's all !. But not realy no, also some others like Alpine A110 and A310, Citroen SM.
Happy be among you.

Bonjour Gerard, sorry my iPad won’t include the accent on your name. But welcome to the best place for all things E Type. We have quite a few French and France resident people onboard so if you’re stuck for an English word I’m sure they can step in to help.

Please post photos of your cars, tell us more about the E Type. Do you do any work on it yourself? Ask questions and someone will usually be able to answer or point you to somewhere on the forum to find out more.

If you add your car type to your signature area then anyone answering will know which version you have and be able to help better.

Bonne chance

:salute: bonjour Gérard et bienvenue parmi nous ici :welcomewave:
Good introduction made, and a very nice car collection you have. I am sure many here would like to know more about your E, history and how it runs, how often you drive it, funny adventures, difficulties... and of course we all love pictures!
Do not worry about your English, whenever you wish switch to French and there will surely be one fellow to support and translate in proper Jaguar terminology.

As others have said, write in French and we will work on our translations. Many Frenxh speakers here and at least one person for whom Citroen is considered magnificent!

Ha... it is an other serious driver here ?. Yes Durango also "thank you mister Opron".
This is my second SM carburators. In restauration currently, i work on cyl. heads.

The way to write here, yes i know you can help me with that. But for me this is a good exercise
to try to write in your language, even with mistakes.
Who i am ?, an old man with only 26604 days at counter.
Who is my E ?, she is "Black Beauty" in super condition for the moment.
Who work on my cars ?, myself. Why?, because i know make that.
30 years Olds Jaguar professionnal restaurer. Now retired .
Yes i like eat some frogs each morning. And you?.
