Letitia Mace is delighted to announce that following the sad loss of Norman Dewis and Jim Randle as patrons of Xclusively Jaguar, Michael Quinn has agreed to take on this role!
The eldest grandson of Sir William Lyons, Michael Quinn is a quiet, reserved man, not known to many Jaguar enthusiasts, but actively involved in preserving the heritage of Jaguar and classic cars in general.
Formerly Service Manager at R.A. Creamer, rising to Managing Director and Dealer Principal, his signature appears in Brucie’s service book during the course of his duties at R.A. Creamer!
During his presentation at Mark 1 Day he divulged that he is soon to announce the opening of “Quinn Lyons” Jaguar Specialists which will be based in London – more information will follow in due course.
Michael is already a patron of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, a member of the Royal Automobile Club Heritage Working Group and the Royal Automobile Club Veteran Car Run Steering Group, as well as being an Honorary Member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, and a member of the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers Motor Car Centenary Bursary Award Committee. Oh, and he chairs the Sir William Lyons Charitable Trust which supports young people entering the field of engineering in the Midlands.
