I agree that the colour is attractive Will and you could say more subtle than Champagne! Regards, Matthew T.

Many thanks Russ and I should have mentioned before that pictures 1-9 were taken at the Citromuseum at Castellane with 11-20 at Reims. The E-type Jag was spotted at Savigny-Les-Beaune Chateau, which had yet another museum containing a large collection of Italian Abarth cars, various motorcyles and rather bizzarely around 100 military jets!

Now there's a colour for you, Russ!!!
Come to think of it, leave an XM out to pasture for long enough, and that's what you get! :o

Some great pictures, Matt.
