This E-Type Became One Man’s Perfect Road-And-Racing Machine
What a sweet car.
Growing up in Washington Heights, New York, you were in one camp or the other. You were a ’Vette guy, or you were an E Type guy. Not Chevrolet Corvette. Not Jaguar XKE. It was ’Vette or E Type, and you knew what that meant.
Bob Millstein was an E Type guy. From a young age he was drawn to British cars. His older brother got into racing and started out with an MG TC, then moving on to an Austin Healey Sprite. Following his brother to the track got young Millstein even more addicted. His fate was sealed while hanging out in Carl’s garage in upper Manhattan—that was where he was able to get up close and personal with an E Type Jaguar being raced by “The Sugar Hill Racing Mob”.
