A staple vehicle at Irvine, California's Cars and Coffee, this Jaguar Lightweight E-Type was heading north on Interstate 5 when it was involved in an accident. Cited in the article as a "1968 Jaguar," this car is either a Lightweight E-Type replica or the article has the year wrong. Regardless, it's a beautiful machine, and you can see it in its pre-smashed state on The Car Lounge.

Witnesses report that the Jag lost a rear wheel, which led to a chain reaction accident involving a Honda Civic, Toyota Yaris and a semi-truck. Drivers and passengers in the Civic and Yaris were taken to UCI Medical Center, while the driver of the Jaguar and the big rig were unhurt. Well... the driver of this Jaguar wasn't physically hurt.

      Its especially a shame because cars should be driven and not holed up in some climate-controlled garage never to set foot on asphalt again. And yet sometimes sh*t happens on the road and it all goes south and this car is proof of that.

      Was it a replica... or was it a knock-off... Knock-offs, sigh...

      But, if you look at the Cars and Coffee Pics, you can clearly see that this car has lug studs. I'm no classic jag expert, but that looks like something you would find on a replica, not an original. The knockoffs appear to be threaded as far as they can be...the lugs would interfere with them going any further. Either way it's terrible, but I'm really hoping it's just a replica...

      Oh the heartache. Its made even worse knowing a Yaris and Civic were involved in its death. ARGH!!!!! And how ironic that the drivers of the Civic and Yaris were taken to hospitals, while the driver of a bare bones Jag walks away. I bet the Civic and Yaris owners try and sue. Just watch. Frickin *******.

      After looking at the before pic. of the wheel I can see why it came off. This guy sure isn't a auto mech. Anybody that would drive that car with that wheel set up deserves th get wrecked. It was hard enough to keep REAL knock offs on.
