But a mere news story photo, we felt, was not sufficient to do proper justice to a car whose lines are so revered it's been on permanent display in the New York Museum of Modern Art since the mid-1990s.
So here it is, the same picture again, but in full POTW technicolour glory (and without that darned PistonHeads banner spoiling the rear end). Enjoy...
A 3.8 or 4.2 Series 1 Roadster in Opalescent Silver Blue, just has to be the Prettiest car ever !!
As a Sadly and much missed ex G/F said to me when i showed her a few pics of a 62 Opal Silver Blue Roadster (850551 via XKE DATA ) " Wow.... with that in the Garage, who needs Ann Summers"

My Uncle opened a shop a long way from my home wher I used to live with my Gran. Because it was her son, she always used to make me walk to HIS shop to get the groceries. The only redeeming factor to this trudge was the opportunity to occasionally walk past a 4.2 series 2 roadster, in cream.
An indeligible mark of beauty and joy in my motoring history.
Oh, and OP ?.....
Yep, that Chrysler Voyager looks great...

Just today I was peering through a window at two immaculate Series 1 cars (the best looking IMO), one a roadster, the other an FHC at a high-end dealer about 10 minutes from my house (one of the only official Radical dealers in the US among other things..)
It was like being a little kid looking at the most expensive toy train through the hobby shop window at Christmas time! E-Types =

Stunning car, I was half expecting Jag to come out with a retro new version of it when the yanks starting re-working all their classic sports cars (Ford gt etc).
I would still love to see some small, lightweight and beautiful sports cars from Jag, I wasn't overly bowled over by the F-type concept. The E, C and D type's were all wonderful cars to make you a proud Brit.
