    A concours d'élégance.

    A Concours d'élégance. Kind of like a beauty pageant for classics. And just like a beauty pageant, it is about so much more than a nice face above a pleasantly sculpted body. It's about quality and perfection down to the last detail. Sea

    SS Party!

    SS Cars is the progenitor of the respected and esteemed Jaguar. 'SS' of course stood for 'Swallow Sidecars', later for Swallow Special. But through Sir William Lyons himself, 'SS' already stands for 'Standard Swallow' in the pre-war 'Jaguars'. Standard was the supplier of the engine blocks. And that that brand name after the Second World War did not seem to be the pinnacle of tight marketing? So something was found there. SS Cars became 'Jaguar'. Sir Lyons had traditionally chosen that name from 500 animal names. And it turned out not to be a bad choice. Sea

    Jaguar SS: Purchase and restoration

    An unrestored Jaguar SS is still being offered sparingly ... For 3-5 mille you can start a challenging project with a lot of welding. An imported specimen from a dry American state usually starts at about 8-10 grand. Although in these strange times and with drifting government policy an (American!)

    Jaguar E-Type noses

    The Jaguar E-Type is without a doubt a fantastically beautiful automobile. People who disagree with this are one hundred percent brand blind or extra gloomy. But beauty, of course, is only outward appearance. And transient. And the old adage is "whoever blows his nose violates his face." The nose of a Jaguar E-Type is about […] Sea

    Jaguar XJ12 ... so British

    For us as classic fans, this is not a cheerful atmosphere for this stylish Brit. Despite the condition of the Jaguar XJ12, we can still enjoy the curving body lines. We are sometimes overcome by a melancholy thought to get the classic out of the long grass for next to nothing. This symbol of prosperity will eventually […] Sea

    The Jaguar XJ. The End of the Show

    We live in a world in which technologists, innovators, clinicians and left-wing politicians want to move us more and more towards alternative forms of drive. Yet there is still plenty of room for love for what once was. Perhaps more than ever. In Great Britain they want to go back to old values. Away from Europe. On the other hand […] Sea

    SS Jaguar 2,5 L. Saloon

    In our country, even young and old-timer diesels are at risk. They are now being bought by the smartest smarts at the best prices. Because it will not happen that the whole of the Netherlands will become an environmental zone? And what should we do with Schiphol? Collectively, pre-war gasoline-fueled classics are becoming increasingly popular. But just after the war, “SS” […] Sea

    Historical sports models from Jaguar and a modern tribute to the XK120

    In 1948 Jaguar introduced the illustrious XK120. Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons unveiled the Jaguar XK120 at London's Earls Court Motor Show in 1948. It was the fastest production car in the world at the time. Its appealing lines, flowing mudguards and design appealed to the audience.
