....to bathe and use the "facilities". I had a black Series I roadster in my youth but it looked nothing like this inside. Always love the coupe.

I thought the 'Eagles' were a recent remake by a group of 'sheds' in Sussex, which cost £500k.
I guess they were part of the original tradition then.

They're not quite that bad, cost-wise, though not for those counting pennies....

What I most like about the design alteration, as on Brundles, is the subtle, but much needed widening of the track (and the tires). The E-Type was near-perfect originally, but had wheel tracks to narrow for the body...as well as the narrow tires of the period. Eagle has fixed that....to say nothing of what they've done to improve the engines. Legend (and some of Jaguars own claims) holds that the 3.8's and 4.2's were 265 H.P. and would go 150 mph. This is bulls***. They were much closer to 190 H.P. and 150 mph would have exceeded the redline in top gear. I think Eagle's cars are well capable of the "legend" and maybe a little over that.
