May 2020 News Round Up


Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month’s cover picture features “a cartoon image” of Brucie – a gift from my son, source unknown. It is one of 2 images created for us (Rob Jenner and Letitia Mace). Sent to us to ease the burden of isolation when the family could not get-to-gether to celebrate the Easter holidays! In addition to the jpg version there is a corresponding framed print on canvas now proudly hanging in my office!

Dash to Turkey – Feedback

I have just read your wonderful Part 3 of Dash to Turkey – well worth waiting for. Reading it I relived every minute of that amazing day.

So glad we were able to do it while Jim was still with us. I know Jim, like the rest of us, enjoyed the day immensely.

Warmest regards

Gaynor Cauter wrote to me after Spares Day, last Autumn …..

Gary [Robinson] at Swallows [Jaguar] turned out to be a brilliant introduction – he phoned me, as promised, and has offered to come and collect my E-Type from Hereford and take it down to his workshop to sort out the head. He has been very helpful indeed.”

Jaguar Magazine subscription


Gerard Langlois recently subscribed to Jaguar Magazine via Xclusively Jaguar. Here are his unsolicited comments after reading the first few issues he received.

“In Jaguar Magazine there is a wealth of rather unexpected photographs (old and new) and articles not only related to Jaguar cars but also to people directly or indirectly in connection with them.

Hence, it offers a staggered positioning among the magazines dedicated to the marque which makes it a pleasure to read.

Thank you Letitia Mace and Xclusively Jaguar for introducing Jaguar Magazine.

All best wishes.

Gerard Langlois”
