4 Classic Brits
« on: May 29, 2012, 03:56:42 pm »
Just clicked onto car & Classic for an afternoon browse and on the front page spotted four separate ads for some classic British metal (and plastic  ;))...

Always fancied a Rolls, this one is a peach...

There are galleons with smaller steering wheels than that Rolls. :lol:

The Jensen interior aside looks brilliant as they always do. But really silly money.

Whoever did that to an e-type needs shooting. Not sure there's a better example of modern wheels ruining an old car. Somehow even with the enormous rims they've managed quite significant arch gaps up front. The airbag fitted wheel is awful to.

^ yes the E Type is truly horrible. The wheels, the interior, just everything about it really.

Must have cost a fortune but to mis-quote Dolly Parton it costs a lot of money to look that bad.

Again - if you want a car that drives, brakes and handles like a XJ, BUY A FRIGGIN XJ !

Making an already ugly SIII E-type, look like a SI and a XJ speant a night of pissed sex and prouduced a slightly simple child is just wrong.
