And I agree with him. One of my friends was a Jaguar dealer here in Michigan back in the 70's and one of his personal cars was a 1974 V-12 E-Type convertible. It was by far my favorite in his collection and he also had a Countach, a couple of Ferraris, 60's Corvettes, etc. None of them compared to the magic of that E-Type.

I still think Jaguar has a beauty that no other manufacturer equals.

On this, I must agree. My all-time favorite car. Would love to own one, even though I don't fit in them. If I owned one, it would be on display in the living room.

I think that was the movie "You Only Live Twice" correct? Wasn't that a right hand drive car?

One of my friends I went to high school with, his older brother had a white GT2000. My friend died in an auto accident a year or two out of school. I wonder what happened to that car.

Joe ( the older brother ) knew he had a special car even back in the late 70s.
