Seeing a Jaguar E-Type is a rare event these days, especially an early version in perfect condition. This gorgeous specimen was seen in my town yesterday; it stopped me in my tracks—well on my wheels—I was riding my bike as usual. Glass-covered headlights signaled this convertible as a pre-1968 model—I'm going to guess that it's a '66 or '67. The anthracite exterior coordinated perfectly with the dark russet/henna interior, a lovely not-quite-red leather. Parked behind our excellent private bookstore, R.J. Julia, this E-Type—also known as the XK-E—was sporting-out-of-state license tags. Coincidentally, Kathy Lee Gifford was about to give a talk at the bookstore. Maybe this was her car, lol?
