Many years ago (no, longer than that), when the E type was young, I was overtaken by one on the minor roads south of Coventry.
A beautiful car, which came blasting past me on a straight, driven by a middle aged man with a long haired blond (female) in the passenger seat.
Of course the road went twisty soon after, so I sat behind him, and it soon became obvious that he didn't know the road, and wasn't at all sure of himself in the car on the bends.
In due course we came to what looked like a blind bend, but which I knew you could get a clear view round if you knew when and where to look - so I dropped back, then accelerated as hard as my car would go, and nipped round him on the bend before he could pull away.
Probably didn't do him any good with the blond he was trying to impress.
The kicker? I was driving a Robin Reliant - 3 wheels and a top speed of about 60.
