I first became interested in Jaguars about twelve years ago. I have had 3 XJ40s since: a 1992 4.0 Daimler, a 1993 6.0 Daimler D6. The Gold left us in March 2013 and the DD6 only stayed for a short period during that same year. The Daimler remains in our ownership and I recently acquired a 1989 Series 1 XJR which for now is my daily driver. I have been a JEC member since 2003 and I joined the Kent South Region two years ago after we moved back to Kent from Leeds.
I have been very fortunate in life to have been able to own a Jaguar/Daimler for the best part of 35 years.I currently own a 2001 Daimler Super V8 and a 1974 Daimler Double Six VDP. I became a part of the JEC Kent South Region in 2013, and have found the Region to be the most welcoming and sociable of groups that I have belonged to. Whether attending car related events or family social events, you are always made to feel very welcome

As I own a similar X300 Sovereign (1997, Sherwood green), left at home, we started an animated conversation in which we were immediately on the same wavelength. I enlisted with Kent South soon and this was a good decision because I have been able to participate in many beautiful trips and meets. I know a lot of club people now and besides, my friends could often answer my Jag-
