To be honest I never liked the look of the 200 coupe. When I was young!! [standard smileys/smiley I wanted a Triumph Spitfire or a TR4, but the real drool was an E-Type. I could never afford any though because I was married!!! (waaaaaah)

Utterly horrid up close and would need a total respray (the finish was poor when you got up close. Even halfords cans would do a better finish)

34, mainly British,


However the first was a 1937 Fiat 500 Topolino followed by a 1937 Standard flying 9.

MOT ??? What was that?? You could sit in the back of the Standard and watch the road passing beneath your feet through the rust holes in the floor. [standard smileys/smile



PS. KEV--------I had an E-Type for nearly two years. ( Traded it in for a Ford Cortina GT.) (oops)

My mate had a 2.8 capri ghia, we went to the lakes and i drove, it must have been the scariest ride ever, i took the car up to 130mph and the steering was so light, was very scary at that speed. this was in late 80's
