I’ve wanted an E since I was a kid. I purchased this 2+2 from legendary car builder, Bob Cecchini from Hayward, CA. Bob bought this car as a gift for his wife. He purchased it from his neighbor who just had the engine rebuilt at a cost of $6K. To make it the perfect present, the car was stripped to bare metal, all mechanical systems were scrutinized, and parts and systems were replaced/repaired as needed. The interior is all new. After the car was completed, the keys were handed over to the missus. The story continues that she had a difficult time using the clutch while maneuvering the winding and hilly streets around where their home is located. After a few years and more than a couple of attempts at shifting/clutching (and not smiling) the car sat virtually unused, with just the occasional drive. It was time for the E to go, and go it did … to me (insert big grin here).
I plan to drive it, tinker with it, drive it, and drive it some more. (insert another big grin here)
