- Thanks for visiting the home of The Jaguar C Type Club!
I hope that through your
membership of The Jaguar C-type Club and using the knowledge and connections I have obtained over the past 17 years of ownership I can help you in
your search for advice and assistance in regard to a C- type or a
D- type Jaguar - replica or original. This could be one
you own already and wish to improve or repair, one you are perhaps
looking for or one you maybe wish to sell. I charge a flat
fee of £3,000 for successfully finding a buyer or a seller for you. Currently
my own "equipe" consists of an original Jim
Marland aluminium Proteus C- type (please see the slide show when I have updated it) and an
XK120. The Proteus is painted in Jaguar Moorland Green which does make
a change from BRG and Ecosse Flag Blue!
But my latest news is that I have just been appointed to be the UK agent
for the new AuthentiCat C-type from Sweden and I am presently writing to
all members with details. The first (of a limited edition of six) cars will
be ready in the new year and are to a level of accurate detail which is
close to obsessive! I am afraid these FIA beauties will not come terribly cheap but they will be the absolute best ever. Let me know if you haven’t yet heard from me.
find The Jaguar C Type Club membership application form in
the "Guest Book". But if it easier just call me on one of the
numbers below.There is no charge for
belonging to The Jaguar C Type Club and the only reason that I
keep mentioning The Jaguar C Type Club is that it helps
the search engines to score more hits! The Jaguar C Type Club is
open to D- type owners as well (including originals of which we already
have two and several halves!). And we have a Lister and an XKSS
as well as several Ds. The Jaguar C Type Club is just
for swapping tips and info between members but I will be trying to arrange at
least one meet, tour or track day every year. If you have
any suggestions or questions, please feel free to say so.
I promote The
Jaguar C Type Club in the XK Gazette (the magazine of the XK Club www.xkclub.com)
who have kindly suggested we combine forces from time to time and I do
on The Jaguar C Type Club's behalf still contribute the occasional
article to that publication. Of course there are very few C and
D - type replicas around - my guess would be that no more than 800 worldwide
- but already we have around 300 members in The Jaguar C Type
Club. It's an obvious case for an online forum I suppose but I
have little idea of and no spare time to manage one of these.
Jaguar C Type Club has attracted members from all over Europe,
several from North America and a few from Australasia. Newsletters have
covered the Proteus story, the evolution of Realm and Heritage, a
meeting with Classic Jaguar Replicas and an interview with the famous
Norman Dewes (Jaguar's Chief Test Driver for all the years that concerned
our cars and many more).The inaugural meeting of The Jaguar C Type
Club took place on 27th June 2012 at Old Warden airfield near
Biggleswade in rural Bedfordshire and the home of the famous Shuttleworth
collection of vintage aircraft. This was at the kind invitation of a Jaguar
C Type Club member and was by all accounts a great success, some
20 C and D- types attending; other welcome invitations include a lunch at a
Wiltshire farmstead (this actually took place in 2013 as the lunchtime
venue for our first Castle Combe track day) and track time at Spa -
Francorchamps. Our next meeting of The Jaguar C Type Club took
place in the Cotswolds in April 2013 and our most recent and arguably
most fun was at Castle Combe in Wiltshire on July 21. Track days at “Combe”
take place regularly – now under the auspices of Classic Jaguar Replicas. Please note that I am always ready to arrange tours in the Cotswolds given adequate encouragement.
So please join The
Jaguar C Type Club if you are enthusiastic about these terrific
and beautiful cars - whether you have one, want one, used to have one or
just simply love them!
I hope to see you again and please keep
checking as there is more to come! And please read the rest of the site
before you go.
Also remember that joining The Jaguar
C Type Club via the website is not mandatory. You can if you wish
simply call me........but if you use the Guest Book route please do not
forget that I need a telephone number a the very least since so often,
believe it or not, email addresses turn out to be incorrect.
