Glad to hear from such a long-standing fan. Are you getting back into vintage racing? If so, you must inquire about our Vintage Festival on Labor Day weekend. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with all your information. Murray Smith is the co-chairman of the event now and he would be happy to speak with you.
Also, you must join the Lime Rock Park Group. You can join by clicking here:
Look forward to having you at the track again this year!
David, Yes Reno/Sparks. We are however, about a 7 hr. drive from Vegas. Tahoe 45 minutes away! Depends when you come out, the Vintage Races in these parts are in early May. Nice event. Our clubs annual Concours and Slalom will be in Mid-July at Tahoe. Hopefully close to 100 Jags from across the west. Cheers.
David, I would go to xk's unlimited for parts. You can request a free catalog. From this you can basically build a car from scratch. Welsh Ent., Coventry West, SNG Barrett are also good parts suppliers. I'm in the process of restoring/assembling a 1961 Mark IX Jaguar. Good luck. Post some pics, as will I.
Good luck with the project.
The various Vintage Racing clubs have different cut off dates for "vintage. Some are 1972; 1980 and/or race what you brought.
Check the map on www.myvrl.com for the club nearest you and call to discuss your car before you begin to spend money.
Good luck - Stephen
