“Coffee, Cakes and Classic Cars” was the theme of the day when E-Type UK and DM Historics hosted an early-season gathering at the Duck House Barn in Hadlow, Kent, England. 

In addition to vehicles brought by their owners, those attending got to tour the restoration shops where, in addition to a variety of Jaguar E-types, they got to see a freshly restored 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II DHC by Mulliner, a 1954 Aston DB2/4 Mk 1 going through a repaint, a 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 FIA spec racer and a 1972 Range Rover Suffix A.

Another Coffee, Cake and Classic Cars event is scheduled for April 28, which is Drive It Day in the UK, a day when collector car owners are encouraged to get out and drive their vehicles.
