Car Photo Of The Day

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day,Cars — chuck goolsbee @ 2:18 pm

I love this photo. Taken on the Colorado Grand in the San Luis Valley.

Roger should know instantly what this car is, so I’m pre-disqualifying him from guessing. Anyone else wish to take a stab?
IIRC it was the street-legal version of a killer pre-war racer and LSR car. It has always been on my list of “10 cars I’d like to own/drive someday” after I saw grainy period photos of it in a book my dad owned about this particular marque. The idea of achieving it’s theoretical top-speed of around 140 MPH on those tall skinny tires somehow affected me deeply as a boy.

I bet Paul knows too, so go paint your Jaguar Paul! 😉
