I would never have entertained a wing on an E Type, but damn that looks good.

Mike, you really did an outstanding job with this one. It looks so right. The badassery is mostly hidden with the sheet metal. So cool. The wide body is such a perfect merger with the rest of the car that no one would suspect that it was not made that way.
This kind of work and planning escapes the typical viewer. You have the eye and the skill.
Most times I can look at a car and know exactly what was changed and what wasn’t. This Jag is far from that. You have good vision and the skills to get er done.
Ever consider taking it down to Columbus for the Good Guys show? I was so impressed last time that I wouldn’t mind going again in June.

Thank you guys. Making the modifications invisible was a goal for sure. Building a car that looks like it may have been produced by a factory was part of the overall plan. Its not perfection, but really realy nice.

That looks super! Like Jack said, you have pulled all the design elements together so well, it looks like it could have been made that way new.

I had the chance to see Mike's Jag today at the Detroit Autorama.


His posted photos do nothing for the car compared to its presence in person. It is die straight and under the Cobo Hall lights, the shadow lines are perfect. Whether those lights are the old Mercury Vapor or new LEDs nothing hides from them. Show car paint to boot.



A great acknowledgement to Mike's efforts being on the front row for all the attendees to see.

Simply OUTFREAKING STANDING!

Of course, we all know that 90% of the credit goes to that Imperial Wheeling Machine 26F serial number 0001 you have. All the vision, design, dedication, skills, patience, and hard work is just icing on the cake. LOL!

Seriously Mike, I am beyond impressed.
