P.J. EVANS my Dad did a lot of business with them in the 1950s. John Crump OldBrit SNOWY Parker, Colorado USA
The son of one of my bosses at Ryland garage back in the early sixties had one of the early E types (little Bill Whale) I eventually followed his example when I also bought one of the early E types but that was in 1968 wish I'd still got it.To try to set the record straight, the closest I ever got to a Lamborghini Miura was whilst in the cinema watching The Italian Job! My father would occasionally loan me a recently traded-in car for me to use - and clean - but they would have been 1100s or Minis. Whilst I don't think that qualifies me as having been wayward, I do admit to having bought a series 1 E Type in the 90s, and nearly 20 years after E & K merged with Evans Halshaw. It was, however, original and completely solid and, given the recent rise in values, I wish I still owned it. The only Morgan connection I can think of is that a distant cousin, who had nothing to do with E & K, once drove one. Coincidentally, he had a brother who drove an E type in the 1960s.
