Almost perfect

E type on trunk linThe chrome letters on the trunk lid say it all. They have a hand-made quality that combines elegance with craft. In the late '60s when this model Jaguar was produced, the technology was less sophisticated. No computer was involved. Perfection wasn't possible.

I was just out of high school when this lovely XK-E was new. I'd have lusted after her except that she was clearly out of my league. I had no more chance of driving one than dating Farrah Fawcett. The slightly less beautiful Corvette seemed more within reach. Never got to first base with her, either.
