Dad had two e-types, a white 61 roadster and a red 4.2 FHC Myself and brother Tim would spend many a weekend in the garages of the Spa Hotel in Ripon with Dad, Keith who worked on the two e-types himself.
We both recall Dad been quite vocal about how difficult these cars were to work upon! At the time recalls Mark we were cold, bored and would often fall asleep inside, or on top of another car. Little did we realise the foundations were been laid for the future.
Wind on 10-years with Dad and uncle Tony we were granted access to the 'Holy grail' Jaguars scrap yard in the 50's and 60's Stickleys scrap yard in Kenilworth - Coventry. It was hard to believe that heaps of surplus original Jaguar scrap laid untouched for 30+years at Stickleys just waiting to be discovered, and discover it we did.
