2011 JCNA Challenge Championship

July 6th - 9th - Columbus, OH

The Jaguar Association of Central Ohio will be hosting the 2011 JCNA Challenge Championship from July 6th-9th and it is sure to be an unforgettable event. The Jaguar Association of Central Ohio, also named JACO, holds this Concours annually in association with the Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show and Cruise-in, and is traditionally one of the largest shows in the Mid-West region. This year, the Jaguar Club of North America is extending the show to four days in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the production of the Jaguar E-type. The show will bring Jaguar enthusiasts from all over the nation together with Jaguar club members to view over 2000 classic and custom cars from an array of makes and models. This celebration will hold musical stages on Friday and Saturday nights to provide an entertaining ending for the event. The Dublin Crowne Plaza, which is conveniently situated on the show grounds, will be the host hotel for the event making it easily accessible for attendants of the show to go to all of the activities. The Dublin Metro Center, which is also the site for the Challenge Championship is also conveniently located off the I-270 making it close to shopping, museums, restaurants and other areas of recreational interest.

The Challenge Championship starts on Wednesday with a slalom event held near Franklin County Fairgrounds. A welcome reception will be held at the Dublin Crowne Plaza following the slalom competition that very same evening and a rally through the back country of central Ohio traveling through covered bridges will follow that event the next morning, eventually ending at the Packard Museum in Dayton. Along with the amazing rally through the day, Thursday night encompasses a dinner at the Scottish-style Pub and Grill within the vicinity of the hotel. Friday morning’s events focus on the history of the legendary E-Type via a seminar explaining the details and development of the timeless beauty. The experience of the Cruise-in is truly one to remember as Friday comes to a close and the events of Saturday will be the Classic Auto Show and JCNA’s Concours d’Elegance. Immediately following the Concours, a BBQ style dinner will be held with the awards ceremony prior to the Arthritis Foundation entertainment function begins outside.

2011 JCNA
Annual General Meeting

March 24th - 27th | Richmond, VA

With this being such a special year for the E-type, much excitement surrounded this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) hosted by the Virginia Jaguar Club (VJC) at the prestigious Wyndham Virginia Crossing Hotel and Golf Resort in Richmond, Virginia. Legendary Jaguar Cars chief test driver, Norman Dewis, was invited as an honored guest and the VJC organized a fabulous event that they rightfully named the XKExperience to coincide with the AGM.

The XKExperience encompassed special seminars, guest speakers, Jaguar displays and much more. The hope was to break a record for the most E-types in one place in the United States, but due to dire weather conditions, many of the expected 60 Jaguars unfortunately could not make the journey.

For more information and photos about this event, please visit www.xkexperience.com. The VJC has put together a wonderful website showcasing the entire experience.

2011 Jaguar Club Mexico
Gran Concourso Internacional de Elegancia

April 2 - 3, 2011


The Jaguar Club of Mexico, once again, did not disappoint with this year’s annual Gran Concourso Internacional de Elegancia which was a huge success! With over 450 cars of different marks and models this Concours remains the largest Car event in the Country and was held at Las Caballerizas in Dos Rios, Huixquilucan. Las Caballerizas, about a 45 minute drive from Mexico City, yields a spectacular backdrop of pine trees and mountains that highlight the beauty and magnificent attention to detail of the various marks in attendance. It was also a very special event for Club Jaguar of Mexico considering it was the 25th Anniversary of the Gran Concourso Internacional de Elegancia and also the 50th Anniversary of the E-type. Much respect was paid to Jaguar with a memorable, big screen production showing the birth of the E-type and a stunning display showcasing the iconic beauty, performance and specifications of the E-type. A restored engine, transmission, rear end and monocoque body were all on display. Israel Lejtman’s (Club Jaguar Mexico member) magnificent 1961 outside bonnet latch E-type, that he has owned and driven since new was featured on display and Enrique Vila’s (SC JCNA Regional Director and past President of Club Jaguar Mexico) spectacular E-type that won this year’s best of show and first place in the European Sports Car division was also featured on display for everyone’s enjoyment.

People and different marks come from all over the Southern hemisphere to be a part of this prestigious event. The Gran Concourso, controlled and owned by Club Jaguar Mexico, is the most well attended and largest car event in the Country and with good reason. The displays are magnificent, the weather is beautiful, the wonderful smell of fantastic food fills the air, the live music adds magic to the atmosphere, the people are beautiful in mind and spirit and even the workers have fun.

If you have never attended this special Concourso, we highly recommend that you mark your calendars for 2012!

 

 

 

 

2011 JCNA Muckenthaler

May 15, 2011 | Muckenthaler Cultural Center

Despite the questionable weather, Jaguars and many other classic European and domestic makes and models draped across the park lawn at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center Sunday, May 15th in a charity event to help support ongoing art programs for our rising generation in the Fullerton, California area.

This year was especially important for the Jaguar community and Los Angeles Jaguar Club, as the Jaguar XKE was celebrated during the JOC hosted Concours for its 50th Anniversary and was the featured mark at this event.

Ken and Anne Smith once again swept the competition with their silver 1967 Jaguar XKE Roadster holding a 100 point score! Following close behind was first time Jaguar owner and Concours participant, Stan Elman with his triple black 1966 Jaguar XKE Roadster with a 99.96 point score! First time Concours participant Stephen Chase and his girlfriend Carrell, showed his beautiful red 1967 Jaguar XKE Roadster and scored very well also.

It is great to see JCNA “new comers” contending well in Champion Class. Janet Klein and the Parlour Boys provided upbeat, flapper era music, adding to the nostalgic feeling of the Concours.

The event also had the pleasure of hosting an appearance by the original Batmobile and original actor that played Robin in the Batman series. This was definitely a wonderful treat and crowd pleaser.

Over all, the Concours was a great success and had a wonderful selection of cars. If you have not attended this spectacular event, be sure to mark your calendars for next year: you will not be disappointed!

 

 

50th Anniversary of the E-type and Concours at the Blackhawk Museum

June 10-11, 2011 | Danville, California

This year the Jaguar Club of San Francisco (JAG) hosted their annual Concours at the Blackhawk Museum and took this wonderful opportunity to host a 50th Anniversary Celebration for the E-type as well.

The Blackhawk Museum currently houses ninety exceptional classic cars and set a very fitting atmosphere for the iconic beauty of the E-type. Many friends and collectors from across the Nation took this unique opportunity to gather together and enjoy the beautiful California summer weather. The celebration started Friday, June 10th with a welcoming reception.

The next morning participants were invited to drive through northern California’s world famous wine country and enjoy a brunch together. Saturday night’s festivities entailed a banquet in the Blackhawk Museum and the legendary Concours followed the next day on Sunday. The events at the Blackhawk Museum were unique and the celebration of the Jaguar E-Type will certainly be an experience to remember.

 

 

Gary Lenty Asks:

  • If I want to show my XKE Series I, will upgrading the transmission to a 5 speed be detrimental?

    From: Georgia

Tom Says:


If you want a factory correct car and are interested in showing your XKE at a champion level, these upgrades would not be a good choice as it will detract from the originality of the vehicle. However, 5 speed transmissions are an excellent choice if you want enhanced driving performance and better dependability without over revving the engine in higher gears.

Another great improvement to think about would be to upgrade the radiator to aluminum and install an auxiliary fan. These improvements coinciding with the transmission will give you the best drivability in an E-type. This is a personal choice and usually will not depreciate your investment. I base my thoughts about the vehicle depreciation off of the fact that many people today are asking for this specific upgrade to be included in the restoration of their Jaguar.

 

Chris Skye Asks:

  • Tom, what are your recommendations for my exhaust manifolds on my E-type? Should I go with porcelain or heat treated?


From: Denver, Colorado


Tom Says:

This is really a personal preference. Porcelain manifolds are factory correct for the car but have yet to be proven to last aesthetically and need to be corrected every few years.

Heat treated manifolds have proven to last much longer aesthetically but are not factory correct. Both manifold choices have the same durability and will mechanically perform well. The difference is strictly the look of the manifold finish. Another option, would be to keep two manifolds; one for showing the Jaguar and one for driving.


Saul Fuentes Asks:
  • What do you recommend in regards to car covers?

From: Washington

Tom Says:

If it will be just for coverage in the garage, then a light cotton or flannel cover is fine. However if you own a roadster with a cloth top, I do not recommend flannel because it will get lint on the top, which we recommend you keep up when not driven to keep the back window wrinkle free.

I do not recommend outside storage but if it is a cover for water and other elements outside, then you need a really durable heavy cover but those can be bulky and cumbersome for travel.

Maintaining Your Classic for the Summer Season

 

Before starting your Summer journeys in your classic car, do a vehicle inspection and check-up before you put it on the highway. Make sure to check the following:

    • Look under the car on the ground to check for any fluids that may have leaked.
    • Check and change fluids as needed.
    • Check gasoline. If old, drain and replace.
    • Charge battery, check or replace as needed.
    • Check air pressure on all tires, don't forget the spare.
    • Check to make sure that bolts and all hardware and suspension points are tight.
    • Check radiator anti-freeze level and note the color of the fluid. It should be a bright green. If not, it may need flushing and changing.
    • Check engine performance for possible need of a tune up,
      carburetor and timing adjustment.
    • If there are any noises or low oil pressure when you start the car, be sure to consult your mechanic before driving it.
