Did anyone see it? They "restored" an E Type in 4 weeks. In a shitty looking garage, By finding crappy second hand bits including shocks/springs, (the very things you like to buy new), in a dismantlers yard! Someone had put in a "modern" plastic sun roof and they didn`t have the wit between them to get rid of it. An overnight blowover in red. They didn`t remove ANY body panels.....couldn`t be arsed to even take the boot door off even though they were changing colour from O.E.White to red!
They made me laugh when it was announced that they were doing a competition to "WIN THIS CAR"!
This was one E Type I didn`t want.
The valuer guy came and was totally taken in. He reckons £30k......OK its a shiny E type that runs, but he`s £10k too much. He must`ve felt a prat after seeing show and the idiots who worked on it.
I was looking forward to this program after being into old cars most of my life, but this was more suited to a "cowboy garages" type show.
