Rob and Kate Harris
We moved from Cheshire in late August 2012 to Willesborough having been members of the National JEC and Cheshire region for more years than we care to remember! My first Jaguar purchase was a Silver grey 1962 3.4 Mk 2 Automatic in Montreal Canada where I worked in 1967. I used to drive it all winter in temperatures down to -
one owner for the princely sum of C$3000. I was hooked on the Jaguar marque!
Returning to the UK in 1984 via a stint in Bahrain I fell across a beautiful 1964 3.4 MK2 MOD. Finished in Opalescent Golden Sand/tan interior with one owner, comprehensive history and 29,000 miles complete with a WK factory registration. We have won some major concours events with a 1st at JEC Northern Day in 2008. I sold the Mk2 to purchase a concours 1967 4.2 E-
roadster in 1988 which won the JDC Southern and Northern Day events in 1992. This was the only E-
miles from new. We have attended seven of the JEC Entent Cordial Rallies over the years with immense enjoyment.
Other Jaguars owned over the years include: 1968 Mk2 340, XJSC Cabriolet; 1966 3.4 Mk2 MOD CWW in Opalescent Grey/red 36,000 miles, (sadly this was written off after a crash by the then owner); X-
Recently much to Kate's chagrin, we came across another low mileage Jaguar, a stunning XK8 convertible in yes you guessed it, Seafrost with Ivory Sports leather seats and 35000 miles and two owners. “Irresistable” I said to Kate. “Pure indulgence” she replied; but “we only pass the way once I retorted” ,so there we have it!
We now very much enjoy our new venue here with the Kent South region and it has helped us to meet some very warm and friendly fellow members. Thank you all for that as we knew very few people on our arrival here in Kent.
