This car has now been completed, and was shown at Goodwood 2009 . The full story of Chris Rooke's labour of love has been serialised in the E type club magazine . Full marks for skill and persistence, and although I haven't seen it personally, I am told that he has made a wonderful job of it

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
