Sorry for the delay in replying, I have been away, so is that Rye, New York? If so, it's a bit far for a day trip!!! What C Type do you have? I am still awaiting the birth of mine, it is due for delivery some time next year. Mine is a Suffolk C Type with full aluminium body made by Shapecraft. I have specified a 3.4ltr engine with 2 SU carbs just like the original.
I am trying to get it as close to the 1952 Mille Miglia car as possible and to that end I have contacted Jaguar Heritage who confirmed the exact colour scheme for me. Dolet me know how you get on.
