Xclusively Jaguar – August ’22

And here we are again – welcoming in the 14th year of Xclusively Jaguar!
The 12th anniversary of Xclusively Jaguar in August 2020 presented new challenges as I got to grips with creating a flip page online magazine as opposed to a simple online newsletter, and I learnt to work with a layout artist and print company, producing a printed magazine for the first time since the inception of Xclusively Jaguar in 2008.

Xclusively Jaguar – July ’22

So, the bad news is that I had to decline a VIP invitation from Lord Montagu of Beaulieu and the Trustees of the National Motor Museum to the 50th anniversary of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu on 3rd July, due to an unavoidable prior engagement.
However, it’s not all bad news, as last month was very special, and Xclusively Jaguar celebrated The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by travelling north for Brucie’s debut at The Shetland Classic Motor Show! You will find a full report in this issue of Xclusively Jaguar magazine. We hosted the trip to Shetland for 10 associates of Xclusively Jaguar – a mixture of subscribers and sponsors, 12 in all, with a total of 7 assorted cars from the 1980’s and 1990’s, all of which had been under the care of David Marks at some point in the past! The same trip had been planned in 2020, but cancelled due to Covid, and the weather this year was glorious, which went some way to compensating for our missed trip!
This month we are proud to welcome our latest sponsor, Woodham Mortimer, and while we were busy enjoying ourselves in Shetland, they were busily engaged in preparing for the Mille Miglia 2022!

Xclusively Jaguar – June ’22

This month Xclusively Jaguar welcomes Abbey Stationery with their bespoke Autofile and the chance for you to receive a £5 refund simply by sending us a picture of your cherished car with its Autofile, for inclusion in Xclusively Jaguar magazine and our social media posts. Email for more information.
Ian Cooling’s Jaguar Automobilia Spring Auction 2022 is soon to come to an end, and details are included in this issue.
Our recent Tea n Torque event was a tremendous success and now we are focussing on The Sir Jackie Stewart Classic at Thirlestane Castle in the Scottish Borders where we will be displaying 3 of our cars.
This month will be the very last opportunity for you to enter the Lockton Performance prize draw with the chance to win a VIP day at Salon Privé 2022 – so act now before you forget!
Our Pick of the Month is a late XK Coupe which has covered a mere 14,000 miles and could be yours by the time the next issue of Xclusively Jaguar magazine is published!

Xclusively Jaguar – May ’22

It’s been a busy month at Xclusively Jaguar! At last we had some shows to attend, the first being the Jaguar Breakfast Club meeting on 2nd April, which was dedicated to the XJ40 and is reported on in this months issue, along with a plethora of other fantastic articles, including:
> Racing updates from Swallows Racing
> A return of the Jaguar Blue Lights – this time looking at Jaguar Fire Tenders
> Part 3 of “Where the XJS Rusts and Why”
> Jaguar D-Type XKD601 Tribute Car
And so much more! Read this months issue here!

Xclusively Jaguar – April ’22

Welcome to the April 2022 issue of Xclusively Jaguar!
At the time of writing, the sun is shining, and petrolheads everywhere are beginning to get their cars out – or at least make those final few tweaks before hitting the road – ready for what will hopefully be a more “normal” year for car shows!
It couldn’t have come at a better time either, as Jaguar and SS owners look at ways to celebrate their Centenary this year. If you still haven’t decided what to do, why not take a look at Pages 36 and 40 for ideas to celebrate with other Jaguar and SS owners!

Whether you are at a show and looking for something to read in the sunshine – or more likely, the April showers have hampered your plans – then this issue will have you entertained for hours. We have a fantastic haul of articles this month, from Swallows “New Look” Launch, to another technical article on the “Dirty Diesel” by Martin Joyce. We also have a book review on Peter Simpson’s wonderfully illustrated book “The Curved Road”, followed by an overview of Letitia’s trip along the NC500 – if these two articles don’t get you wanting to take your Jaguar out for a drive, nothing will! Don’t forget, Part 2 of our special 6-Part series from Andy Harvey continues where we left off last issue, in our quest for understanding where the XJS rusts and why!

Xclusively Jaguar – March ’22

This month at Xclusively Jaguar we look back at the history of Jaguar Police Cars with Howard Hunt, Gil Keane tells us the importance of good car lighting (so you don’t get pulled over by those police cars!) and Lockton Performance discuss how you can ensure that your car is safe and secure when not in use!

Looking forward to events this year, we start preparing for the upcoming show season with details of several special events, including the Sir Jackie Stewart Classic.

Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for all our special offers ONLY for our readers, and you can also keep up to date with our day to day activities, latest updates and photos, and join in with other Jaguar owners over on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
