Soumya also sent us this fantastic E-type sketch.
Soumya first of all I would like to praise you for the sketch man. You left no stone unturned in sketching this epitome of beauty the way it had to be ideally done. All respect for that man.
And the way you have put up your adulation for Malcolm Sayer in words is infused with so much substance. Indeed he was a heroic aerodynamicist and an inspiration for the budding designers.
And the E TYPE: indeed Sex On The Wheels.
Soumya may Sayer sir bless you always man.
the “gold” of ur repetoire !
