October 2016 News Round Up

Jaguar XJ40 30th Anniversary - Dunkeld 2016

Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month I have indulged in two cover pictures! The first is four of the XJ40’s that made the pilgrimage to Dunkeld to celebrate their 30th Anniversary! This picture is one of a series taken by Neil Fordyce for Dunkeld House Hotel and is now on their website!


Letitia Mace and 'Opium' (XJ40 3.6 Sovereign - E264OMP)

The second is one of my favourite pictures of my 3.6 XJ40 Sovereign, known as ‘Opium’ – the picture was taken at Dunkeld by Pim from Holland, as I was putting the finishing touches to Opium before judging, little knowing that later that evening Opium would win the prize for the best XJ40 at the event!

The full report on Dunkeld appears in this month’s newsletter.

Snippets of information continue to arrive in relation to Dunkeld. Kent South News being just one example (below), where newsletter editor Lesley King acknowledged the awards received by Rob Jenner and myself.

Opium (E264OMP) has been bagged up today and gone to bed for the winter, following her conquest at Dunkeld, which was in no small part thanks to Meguiar’s. Last year their products helped us to victory with Rob Jenner’s X300 XJR at the Jaguar Cars Concours of Elegance at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, and this year it was the turn of my XJ40 3.6 Sovereign to take a prize!

Brucie (P468NLN) is due for MOT and has just had his insurance valuation re-assessed by Graham Searle at the JEC, to take into account the current trend of rising values of interesting and pristine classic and neo-classic cars. Speak to Peter James Insurance to make sure your insurance is up to the job!
