Featured Events

Since its founding in 2004, the E-type Club has gone from strength to strength and we now have members in over 50 countries...

What makes the E-type Club different is that we focus 100% on E-types. 

​There are several excellent Jaguar clubs but they have to cover a vast range of cars and interests from pre-war through to the current range. Naturally, they cannot concentrate on just one model...​

On 25 August, we will remember and pay tribute to Jeremy Broad at Shelsley Walsh, as his son Guy has taken over the iconic venue for the day.

 

Jeremy was one of the very first people I knew in the classic Jaguar world. We met and became friends in the early ’70s. I was young and naïve, but Jeremy was already established as one of the leading enthusiasts. He worked in the printing industry, as I recall, but used to wheel and deal in XKs, and later E-types, in his spare time.

 

One phrase I recall with amusement that he often used in his ads was, ‘a potential concours car’. The fact the car was a complete basket case was nothing to do with it. Of course any car, however bad, is, in theory, a potential concours...

Well, that was some Club Weekend! Thank you to all who came and enjoyed the lovely (if a tad gusty) weather for the Saturday Drive and/or Sunday Club Day and Gala Dinner.

 

A full report will be in the next issue, so keep an eye out for all the gossip.

 

We must give a massive ‘thank you’ to our Club Weekend sponsors, SNG Barratt and CMC. Their support made the whole event possible, and their technical advice to members on the Sunday was very much appreciated. Thanks also to CBR Restorations, who completed our triumvirate of specialists.

 

All the stands seemed very well attended during...

XKE Data viewed on laptop

XKE Data

 

XKEDATA.com is a project to help people find information about a particular car or series of cars by serial number.

This site welcomes participation from anyone interested in these cars. We aren't experts, but there is also no exclusivity to the data hosted here. You don't have to be a member to list a car.

If a site user sees a car with such-and-such car number in a classified ad that's what will be entered. It's all that's known at that point. But over time, hopefully more information will be added, corrections will be made, and at the end of the day we'll know a bit more about a particular car than we would otherwise.

By the spring of 2017 progress had accelerated. Bitumen-based sound deadening had been stuck to the inside of the door skins, and the fitting of the window frames, glass and winder mechanisms was underway.


Following tests on the rear heated screen, I discovered that it could not be satisfactorily repaired, so a new, laminated screen was purchased.


Unfortunately, the sound-deadening material I initially bought proved too thick for the boot floor, which interfered with the satisfactory fitting of...

Why buy an E-type?

 

Apart from the emotional aspects, there are a number of hard-headed reasons to buy an E-type. ​

 

Reliability – there is no point in owning a classic car unless you can use and enjoy it, and do so with confidence that it is not going to let you down. All the E-type’s mechanical components were used in the higher volume saloon...
