There is apparently this trend going on with people buying expensive cars and having them either painted or foiled (the noun, not the verb ) in matte black. I've seen Audi Q7s, Porsche 911s, BMW M3s and Bentley Continentals in matte black. Whoever thinks that is cool ought to have new taste glands forcibly transplanted
I saw an AMG BLACK E-63 in this sort of paint recently. I think that's stock.
A '66 Jag E type with a chevy 350 in it......the guy who did that should be shot with a ball of his own sh!t
In his defence, I recently saw a Jag e-type on the side of the road with a for sale sign on it. I'm absolutely positive it wouldn't run if tried. However, the thought did cross my mind of trying to restore it by fixing up the body and replacing the engine with something that would run. Its not like there's a lot of engines for late 60's Jag e-types out there.
