Here we are once again, on the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club stand at the Classic Motor Show, NEC, Birmingham!
An interesting selection of Jaguars graced our stand, the most popular of which appeared to be the genuine Broadspeed Coupe, loaned to us by Jaguar Heritage, which provided an irresistible backdrop for photos!
It is always busy on the JEC stand and difficult to find time to get away for a break and see what other people are doing at the NEC, but during one such break I was able to visit the stands of a few of those who support and sponsor Xclusively Jaguar.
|Jaguar Land Rover Classic were nearby, and although Esta-jane was not able to join them this year due to family commitments, I met and spoke to a number of her colleagues who were on-hand to answer the questions of classic Jaguar owners.|
|Philip and Julie Porter, of E-type Club | Porter Press | XK Club were supporting the Prostate Cancer stand with their famous E-type 848CRY, as seen in The Italian Job|
|SNG Barratt were supporting Prostate Cancer by displaying an E-type which was covered in the signatures of those who had donated to the cause – some famous Jaguar names were included!|
|Phil Beck showed me around the Peter James Insurance stand and spoke to me about some of their current projects and the support they are providing for owners of classic cars, details of which will appear in future newsletters.
|I was welcomed into the Longstone Classic Tyres stand, with its contrasting black tyres and yellow cars, by the Michelin man !!|
|GB Classic Trim specialise in retrimming Jaguars but had been asked to retrim this stunning Maserati 3500GT which was nominated for Car of the Show!|
|This Jaguar E-type appeared with several other superb examples of other marques on the Meguiar’s stand.|
|Meguiar’s very kindly provided me with everything I needed to prepare the Jaguar F-type raffle car for display on the JEC stand and maintain the appearance of all the Jaguars on the JEC stand for the duration of the show|
