For a variety of reasons, three summers ago, I decided to make an E-Type my daily driver. A Series I fixed head coupe to be exact. I took a fair amount of grief for this, with dire warnings about being a frequent pedestrian as a result of the notorious unreliability of the car. I’m happy to report that the experiment was a success and the E-Type enjoyed near-Camry levels of reliability throughout the summer of 2010 (and to this day, as I understand it from its current owner in Frankfurt, Germany).
