Earls Court Motor Show at Goodwood Revival 8/2011
« on: December 27, 2020, 02:28:14 PM »
I can across this cool picture first for the E-Type, which I posted in my local Jaguar club, and then thought to myself, is this a Cobra, or just an AC Ace?  Not very good resolution, but what do you think?



Thanks,

Cool photo, Brian.

What's horrible is that the Brits always had to put their giant license plates on the hoods (oops, bonnets) of E-Types and others.
