Concours Cars Tour & Pot Luck Dinner

The Jaguar Club of Southern Colorado will tour the facilities of Concours Cars, 2416 West Cucharras Street in Old Colorado City on Saturday, November 8 at 5:00 P.M. We will also have a pot luck dinner during the tour. The club has elected to take up a collection at the tour site and provide pizza for the dinner. If you would like to provide something else instead of a donation for the pizza, please let me know so we can avoid duplications. We will need drinks.

If you plan to attend this event, please RSVP no later than November 4 so we will know how much pizza to order.

SNG Barratt held an informal morning at local hill climb venue Shelsley Walsh with their E-Type Series 1 4.2 for a handful of customers to try out the modifications and upgrades fitted to the car. The car was put through its paces and everyone enjoyed the morning, finding it useful to get a feel of the products on the car. There was also the opportunity for customers to take their own E-Types for a spin up the track, which was great fun for all!
