1966 Jaguar E-type
A little back story on the Jaguar, incase anyone is interested;
My grandfather and my father bought it in 1970 from a college kid that was selling it in order to pay for law school. It had just over 12,000 miles on it and he owned it for only 3 years before selling it. The car was in great condition to begin with and having only 1 previous owner, was treated like a gem. My grandfather drove it daily for quite a while in upstate Mesena, New York, where snow and salt just littered the roads from October to April.
The car accumulated about 30,000 miles and sat in Mesena until around 1994 when my Grandparents moved to Tucson, Arizona. The paint was starting to chip, and the car was showing it's (30 year old) age by this point and as all Jaguars do, began frequently breaking down. My grandfather had enough of it by 2000 and sent the car to my father as a project, after being freshly stripped and painted with the original lacquer color. It's been quite the time-consuming and money-indulging experience getting it all back to working order. The car runs very well (well…. for now…..) and has just a little over 44,000 total miles on it. It's a blast to drive and turns a ton of heads.
Onto the good stuff:

Sex on wheels! I love old Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags.There are only four sports: bullfighting, motor racing, mountaineering, and troll hunting; all the rest are merely games.
