BRITISH SPEED! It started with a Jaguar XK 120 and progressed to 763 MPH.

You have to hand it to the British for being so speed obsessed. It started with the Jaguar XK 120 that reached a speed of 132.6 MPH. Then in 1997 a new speed record of 763.035 MPH shown in the video below breaking the sound barrier and shattering the US record of 630.389 MPH. Awesome to watch.


If you own a vintage Jaguar join JAGUAR SOCIAL NETWORK . A network for E-Type and XK 120/140/150 Owners.…

ruffling feathers

Seems as though one of my previous blogs found it's way into print and ruffled some feathers in the vintage group that I am a member of. I have just received some copies of e-mails sent to other members who have then sent them to others who then sent them to others and so on and so on till they found their way to me.

I did not mention any names in my blog. I did not accuse any one person… Continue

St.George's Day Run to Brooklands

Lads, just thought I'd mention that I am co-organising a classic car run through the Surrey (UK) countryside on the 24th April (a Saturday) to finish up at around mid-day at Brooklands Museum, where you can then savour the delights on offer there.
We are currently finalising the start points and 'halfway halts'.

Vintage Airport Racing

I used to race at the Santa Barbara and Lompoc, CA road races held on their respective airports. I now own a former WWII airbase and have thought how neat it would be to have vintage "airport" races. The races could be enhanced by staging vintage era aircraft and equipment. The airfield (see www.eaglefield.net) is located in the Central Valley of California, about 1.5 hours from San Jose, 2.0 hours from Bay Area and 4.0…
