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.
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.
This was one of the first photos I took with the NEX-5 that I really liked. I took this about a month after I got the camera when we went to Washington D.C. This is the Washington National Cathedral.
I was in Vegas last week to watch my cousin play basketball and at night went out and lost some money. This is Harrah’s from the valet station.
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.
I love going by the candy store in Downtown Disney. Especially when they’ve got the various candy apples set up. These were the only ones on display, but that’s okay because they’re so colorful they look fantastic.
