I do not know if you have seen the publicity on this extremely rare Jaguar survivor car, but thought you would enjoy reading about it: Hemmings Article

There is a really interesting video embedded in that article about the documentation on this car. -Gary

Do I want the F-Type? AUTOWEEK Does!

It depends on your hierarchy of hero cars. The F-Type lacks the polish and, by extension, the sophistication of a 911 or R8. It lacks the cachet of a Ferrari California T, and in certain respects, it’s less comfortable than any of them.

On the other hand, the F-Type is substantially less expensive than any of those, which by definition makes it more accessible. It’s arguably the purest car among its Euro competitors, and it’s no slouch in any respect.

If excitement and craft are important in your hierarchy, then you won’t go wrong. If you’re looking for that in a package that is both gorgeous and reasonably priced by up-front and operating costs, you want it.

The F-Type manual is an increasingly rare creature among thoroughbred sports cars.

Registration Now Open for 2015 Spring Dust-Off

Take the cover off the Cat, check its vital signs, gas it up and come join us for the annual Dust-Off on Sunday, May 17, for a fun and eventful way to welcome the 2015 summer driving season. This year’s tour will begin in Castle Pines where we will meet in the parking lot of the DazBog Coffee shop at Castle Pines Parkway and Lagae Rd. (Exit 188 off I-25 and 0.5 miles west).

Meeting time will be 8:30 a.m., with a driver’s meeting at 9:00, and on the road by 9:15 to 9:30 a.m. We will drive down Daniels Park Rd., making our way to Sedalia where we will pick up CO 105 and skirt the foothills as we drive south through Palmer Lake and Monument crossing over I-25 on Baptist Road into El Paso County where we will continue east until we reach Fox Run Regional Park.

We will meet up again under a reserved covered park pavilion to sip champagne and juice, munch on strawberries and other snacks, and trade stories of the fabulous scenery. Expect the drive to the park to take about one hour and 15 minutes. We will take an approximate one hour break in the park to allow everyone enough time to enjoy the scenery, use facilities, and get ready for the second part of the drive.

>From the park, we will take about one hour to make our way back north, partly through the Black Forest, and then using CO 83 heading toward Parker. We will arrive at the superb new car museum, The Vehicle Vault, in time to enjoy a catered box lunch in our private dining room on the second floor and tour the 45-car museum under the tutelage of the cars’ owners (all cars in the museum are owned by one couple, the Dilleys.) Total drive time is about two hours and 15 minutes, total elapsed time to the Vehicle Vault will be just over three hours, and we will cover about 85 miles.

Registration for the Dust-Off is $35 per person, which includes everything. You may register for the event by credit card on the RMJC website, or mail a check to Dwight Eisnach at 6337 S. Wolff Ct., Littleton, CO 80123. For questions call Dwight at 303-794-6443.
