Metric's all well and good, but I've never seen anything like a Jaguar XK-E or Austin-Healey 100-4 come out of a metric-measurement country...

The Metric System never stopped the design and production of the Ferrari 250GTO or the Mercedes 300SL, not to mention the Porsche 911 and a host of Alfa Romeo classics.
I also believe the E-type was designed using "rule of thumb", or "About here looks right" rather than a ruler, either metric or imperial.
