[E-Type] New Jag Club/Great E Type Poster

Hi Listers:

I have been contacted by Janice Alexander, a founder member of the brand
new Virginia Jaguar Club.

In order to raise funds to assist with all the expenses related to setting
up the club, Ms. Alexander is selling a beautiful E Type poster that her
printing company has produced. Check it out - it is a stunning piece of
art.

Anyone who might be interested in buying the poster can either see it on
the Accessories section of my website, or on the Virginia Jaguar Club
webpage at www.vajagclub.com

If you are a Virginia resident and are interested in joining the club, you
can reach Janice at: jkalexander@erols.com

Regards,

Dan Mooney

Time to buy an air compressor. Opinions please on power, flow, and capacity.
I looked at Harbor Freight and they sell quite a range.

I want to be able to paint a car, but I would like a big portable for
“around the farm” kinds of tasks. Are the two compatible?

Erik:

The small portables are ok for spraying you should also look into HVLP
(high volumn low pressure) guns for spraying, they are now making them
for use with a compressor rather than a turbine.

The small protables will also function nicely for most nail guns etc.
But if your considering air operated tools sand blaster, impact wrench,
cut off saws and the like you need to be sure that the compressor can
maintain the required cfm for the specific tool. I’ve found the a small
portable fills most of the bill but when I needed to sand blast some
wire wheels I hauled them in town to use the large compressor at my
shop.

Generous offer, Dan, and a good money-making idea on the part of the Virginia
Jag Club, but may I make an observation about the beautiful poster being
offered? People wearing long, flowing scarfs should avoid open sports cars,
especially those with wire wheels, and especially-especially if the wheels are
attached by eared knock-offs. The untimely demise of Isadora Duncan provides a
gruesome case in point. I get choked up just thinking about it. But Isadora
was merely a passenger, The Bugatti she was in survived the episode. The woman
in the poster is the driver, so a Series II OTS would be toast in the event
of an accident. Now that would really be a tragedy!

With little to do on a sweltering day,

Just out of curiousity, do any of our Washington state people know what
happened to our former Governor Dixy Lee Ray’s (RIP) series one OTS? She
kept it for years, and it seemed to inevitably be in the photos taken of her
for the University of Washington’s staff directory.

Again, just curious.

What happened to Ms Duncan?
Mike Moore

She was riding in an Amilcar (Bugatti sounds better, but it was an Amilcar)
wearing a long flowing scarf. The end of the scarf that was blowing in the
breeze much like the poster, wrapped around the eared knockoff hub while the
car was underway and she experienced a rather unpleasant speedy parting of
the spinal cord.

Don’t let the wife wear long scarves in the OTS.

Eric,

I bought a 3.5hp, 20Gal portable air compressor a few years ago. At the time
it was the largest 120volt available. I’ve painted a couple cars with it
and its the oilless compressor type (something I thought might be better for
painting). Runs all my air tools, but you do have to stop sometimes to let
it build up pressure. When painting cars, I did have a water condensation
problem and had to use a disilate dryer to remove all moisture from the air.
I’ve also tried a HVLP gun from Harbor Freight and found it to be
terrible, so I replaced it with a deBliss and have been very happy since.
Then I got a great deal on an upright 6.5hp, 220V 60gal. It makes much less
noise and uses the conventional oil type compressor. Ran PVC pipe all
around the garage with multiple water traps but have yet to paint with it.
Check sales at Sears and Home Depot, compressors are getting
cheaper…Richard>From: Mark Bennett mben2@cfw.com

Hi,

I bought the poster a month or so ago, and it’s really nice. The car
pictured is a SII OTS, silver/red with the boot rack - exactly as my '69 OTS
will be finished when done. I should have the picture back from the frame
shop any day now, and it will be mounted directly above this computer as
inspiration/motivation.

I have a 5 hp 26 gallon campbell hausfeld. It is 120V and
luggable, it’s heavy but it’s cart-shaped and has decent
wheels.

I painted my MGB with it no problem. The only things I
can’t do are REALLY long sessions of sandblasting
continuously at high pressure, and running the dual
action sander for long straight periods.

For weekend warriors like myself, I don’t consider
it a limitation at all. I don’t mind stopping every
now and then for 30 seconds or so to ponder my
work.

With all the usual tools like air nibblers, ratchets,
impacts, and so on, it has ample amounts of air.–

It would be a great poster without the woman with the
long scarf!

If Janice Alexander is the woman in the scarf, how do I get contacted by
her? :slight_smile:

Or the other half of the car!

I love the poster, but is it really just the upper halp of the car, or is it
just the picture on the site that’s cut off ?

maybe I missed the subtility of the design, in that case I’d like to be
enlightened…

if it fully shows the car then I will order it right away…

Hi Pascal,

The poster is 60 inches long by only 9 inches deep. It is indeed only the
top half of the car.

Different, perhaps, but don’t hold that against it :wink:

Perhaps you could purchase several and use them as a wallpaper border
around your favorite room (or garage).
Why is Dan masquerading as Justine? You haven’t undergone any surgery
have you Dan? :wink:

  • really? I was hoping that the bottom half was not placed on the net for
    purposes of protecting the image… NUTZ!!!

Hi Joe,

I have found that people seem to be nicer to Justine…I thought I’d
pretend to be her for a while.

Come to think of it, Pascal talks to Justine on the phone more than he does
to me these days…I shall have to watch him :wink:

Your caution is well advised, Dan. Anyone who has “pam-trading” in his e-mail
address could be interested in swapping more than disk brake assemblies.

It’s really just the upper half of the car, Pascal, but a nice picture,
nonetheless! Could make a good project (to restore or ‘finish’ it) for
someone with an artistic bent, though!
