Hoovie gets a Jag

Not sure if any of you guys follow this guy, but he is really entertaining in a funny way…
Started out several years ago with the youtube channel and has done very well, but he always wanted an Etype…check it out.


Finally, a proper driving video!

Is that what you call it? :roll_eyes:
I can’t wait to see what the “Car Wizard” thinks of it.
PS: My son turned me on to Hoovie and the Car Wizard years ago

Great, now I have to look up the Car Wizard!

he has a spring on his trunk latch mechanism just as I found mine. You all told me that was a PO bodge? Could it have been factory or just a known thing to do?

I’m not seeing it. I see the cable on the right and what looks like it may be an extra ground wire on the left.

He’s really excited. Might need a new sill, metal work and some door skins. Nice and shiny though.


I found it refreshing to see it being driven like a ‘sports’ car. Much better than most of the drives where the car is being treated like a delicate newborn kitten.


Hoovie must be doing something very well, by the looks of his stable.

he said all cars paid off due to his youtube channel.

Agree, most of the E-type driving vids on BaT look like outtakes from Driving Miss Daisy.

That dealer up in Portland finally did one of his trademark driving videos where he flogged an E-type pretty hard, and it nearly caused a sensation, and accusations of a sped up video….a sports car being driven like a sports car!! (clutches pearls) :wink:


He mentions that, but didn’t point out that the car collection his grandfather left him was worth millions, including a 275GTB and 300SL. Just selling the 275 would pay for the rest of his current collection.


no no. i think that was a dream he said he had.

Ah, you could be very right! I had previously heard him talking about all his grandfather’s cars, so in that part of the video I assumed that was it. I went back and watched again and it is slightly ambiguous, but I think you’re right. My bad……never mind!

Well, yes indeed someone’s pushing it a little bit hard: still, a well-driven WRX Subaru will still kick its ass up between it’s beautiful headlights!


you’re right. at 10:32. It’s the power wire with the sleeve on it. I had to blow the pic up to see

But Enzo never had any comments on a Subaru.


True that!

Also, when I had it out the track, while all the Soobies were able to pass me two or three times (and I was driving Tweety as hard as the non-existent brakes would allow), I didn’t see crowds of people around the Subarus taking pictures of them… :slight_smile:

I like to say…"No, your (fill in name) car is faster but…when they are both standing still mine is way faster than yours.
