You Can Have any Colour You Like, As Long As It's Red

Recommended Posts

Looks like a mass male mid-life crisis to me. :D

 

And yes, definitely an E-Type for me as well, as long as they throw in a free Jaguar-trained expert mechanic for free. ;)

Absolutely (regarding the mechanic)! :) 

 

We went to this estate in Somerset West called Vergelegen which was one of Simon Van Der Stel’s properties when he was governor of the Cape. At a neighbouring property (who’s name I cannot recall) there was this amazing Sunday food market and attached to that was this petrolhead’s café with all these old classic cars on show. I could definitely have spent more time there but the family were hungry so we headed back to the market.

I would take the Alfa Romeo at top left.

I just realised a mistake - the Governor's name was Willem Adriaan Van Der Stel, not Simon. Don't know where I got that from...

Nah mate - you need at least three E-Types - one to drive and two+ for spare parts!  LOL

I'm no E Type expert, but I think we have 2 V12s and a 4.2 .. any purist wants a 'flat floor' 3.8 despite the narrow track back end and the Moss (IIRC) gearbox .. !

 

And you'd need more spare cars ..

 

Just saying .. 😎

 

cheers, Maurice
