Classic Cars in Barcelona

Auto retro exhibition Barcelona - MG and Jaguar XKE type

If you can see both colors you are not Daltonic or color blind...I digress. These are classic cars in the past Auto Retro exhibition in Barcelona. The one on the left is an MG but I can't tell the other make. I know there are some fans among you, for example Curly from South Shields in the UK, who can help me with this.

PS: After I wrote these lines I paid Curly a virtual visit and found out he underwent an urgent operation recently so some words of support would be just great.

Update: The car on the right is a Jaguar XKE type "E". Thanks for your help in the comments.

    The car on right is a Jaguar XKE from middle 60's

  2. Thanks for your contribution. Greetings.

  3. It is a Jaguar XKE type "E". A specialist could certainly tell your the year, but it is more likely a car, sorry an automobile :~), from the early 70's. This one has the "short nose", so it is the V8, not the V12. Beautiful anyway..


  4. Both pretty cars. They are Christmas colors.

    Hopefully Curly will be better soon.

  5. That's Jag Type E like anonymous said, Carlos.

    Our classic car museum has one and I saw one as sold at local dealer while ago. It's not there any more, by the way.

    I had drove Jag XK20 (1957 or may be 58) for about half a day. Boy, that was fun. It' snot mine but local garage had a rent a car business to provide some exotic model.

  6. Thanks Alex, Faye and Ben for casting more light upon this topic. I think now it is clearer which make it is and the model. Happy New Year

  7. I feel like I just stepped onto a 1950's movie set and any minute now Steve McQueen will race Alain Delon around Monte Carlo;-)))

  8. Bonne année, bonne santé

    Good year, good health
    time passes, the years slip by. When a new year starts, one always wonders if it will bring peace and happiness to each one… Close the eyes and make a wish!

  11. Nice "E" type there carlos, thanks for your good wishes I'm feeling relatively good today after the scare of a heart attack.

  12. Thanks Curly I am glad you are recovered.
