This past October 3rd and 4th, the Inland Empire Jaguar Club and the Jaguar Owner’s Club of Los Angeles combined each other’s concours events for a “2 shows in 1” weekend in the mountains in Idyllwild, CA. The town of Idyllwild is located on State Highway 243 against the beautiful backdrop of the San Bernardino mountains, and consists of many charming restaurants, gift and craft shops, with a wonderful backdrop of the San Bernardino mountains to enjoy. The views are spectacular, and the event location is charming!
Because of the pandemic, the two Southern California Clubs decided to merge both events into a single weekend, and this was in fact one of the very few Concours events to take place in 2020. Saturday was IEJC’s event, and Sunday was the JOCLA’s. Saturday was the preview for one of our clients, whom we restored a 1954 Jaguar XK-120 for earlier in the year. The client scored 9.909 points in the S2/MOD: Modified category at the event. Please note that this was the the XK-120's first showing.
Tom from Classic Showcase attended Sunday only, and took some photographs of the event; nearly all the cars present took part in both Concours events, with each night holding a dinner reception that made for a safe and fun weekend for all in attendance!
Moss Jaguar was a sponsor and had a wonderful display of products to see, and catalogs to hand out.
With a show field nestled among the pine trees against a beautiful backdrop full of fresh mountain air, Idyllwild has become one of the favorite Concours event destinations for Southern California Jaguar Club members to unwind and enjoy each other’s company and competitive spirit. Stay tuned to our future newsletters for information on next year’s Idyllwild event!
