JCNA Car Show Part 2

This is part two of the Jaguar Club of North America’s Western States Concours d’Elegance post.  This post has more full body shots of the cars and a little video I shot of a 1990 XJR-15 with the engine running and revving.  Same as last time, I’ll be posting these in order starting with the oldest


 – 1935 SS 90

 – 1938 SS 100

 – 1952 XK120

 – 1954 XK120

 – 1956 XK140

 – 1957 XK140 Zagato

 – ’57 XK140 Zagato

 – 1960 XK150

 – 1966 S-Type

 – ’66 S-Type

 – 1990 XJR-15

 – ’90 XJR-15 office space

 – ’90 XJR-15 wheel


and the video



Sounds so angry when it revs.  I can imagine this tearing down a track at full-bore and it’s a glorious though.


Random photo for 3/16/2012


Got a new lens today, the Minolta MD Celtic 135mm f/3.5.  This is one of the quick snaps I took this morning before going to work.

JCNA Car Show

The Jaguar Club of North America put on a Concours d’Elegance in Chandler today and since I love cars (especially the E-Type Jag) I went down to check it out.  These are just some of the pictures I took.  I’ll probably post a part two with more complete pictures of cars and I want to check out some video I shot and possibly put it on youtube and embed that.

Starting with the oldest

 – wheel off a 1935 SS90

 – logo from a 1938 SS100

 – gauge cluster from the same SS100

 – logo off a 1952 XK120

 – reflection of a ’54 C-Type in the ’52 XK120

 – gauges from a 1953 XK120

 – rear three-quarter view of another ’53 XK120

 – front of a ’54 XK120

 – I’ve looked this car up since I came home & it seems like there was only one 1957 XK140 Zagato that was made.  If this isn’t that one car they did a big job of reproducing that one, even going so far as to recreate the front license plate.

 – the Zagato Z

 – 1958 XK140

 – mirror off what I believe to be an XK140

 – 1961 E-Type convertible (I love this color)

 – couple of E-Types with their hoods open

 – clouds reflected off an E-Type’s trunk

 – E-Type front ends


It was a cool event.  Some really beautiful cars on display.
