The owner Mark is a friend of mine - he attends and shows at the top events worldwide.

Easy to spot - shaved head with a fat cigar always on TV.

He is very good at what he does.

Thanks, Doug. Their website is very impressive - good descriptions and excellent photos - and generally confidence inspiring. They have an E-type that interests me a lot, but I have never bought a car from another country before and clearly cannot pop round to take a look at it, so I am ever so slightly nervous, as you can imagine. So your first hand knowledge of Mark Hyman is very reassuring. Thankyou.

Best wishes, John

Mark has one of the most impressive places in the world.

John - if you want myself or a reputable shop listed below to take a look at the E-type for an inspection let me know.

The last two are small shops and may be the most helpful.

GLB Motorworks / Erwin F. Schwarz / Reid Vann Imports / Paul Weishaar at PPW Motorcars.

A well known restoration shop - Le Stable 618 288 5423 Speak with Bonjour or Andre - I do not know Le Stable but everything I hear is excellent and that's where I will at some point take my Healey.

Feel free to speak with Mark and mention my name - Doug H and my son is Corbin also good friends with his daughter should get you the skinny on the E - type.

Good Luck

Thanks for the suggestions, Doug. I have e-mailed a list of questions to Hyman, so I'll wait for their reply and take it from there. This is the car:
