Re­vival of old clas­sics

Cambridge Edition - - OUT & ABOUT - KEL­LEY TANTAU

For Dave In­gram, it’s only ever been a Jaguar.

The clas­sic car brand build his ve­hi­cles of choice. He has owned around 10 of them over the years.

‘‘I brought my first Jag in 1982, and I’ve been around Jags ever since and have had a fair bit to do with them.

‘‘I’ve had 10 or 12 over the years.

‘‘It’s the peo­ple you meet and the places you go. If it’s a Jag, it’s cool.’’

‘‘I think thats part of Jag- uar at­trac­tion, right from the early ones, you can al­most see the evo­lu­tion of where it’s come from.

‘‘I started off in Nel­son and when we came here, you hunt out the Jags. I’ve known Paul for a long time.’’

‘‘We’re look­ing for a new gen­er­a­tion of peo­ple. We’re also try­ing to in­cor­po­rate women into it as well.

‘‘It’s not just about go­ing to car sheds.’’

Dave In­gram owns a Jaguar 1957 Mark VII M. He pur­chased it as a relic from Hok­i­tika more than 20 years ago.

A meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 15 will call for a for­ma­tion of a work­ing com­mit­tee to help start the club up, In­gram said.

Over Easter 2018, there is a Jag Na­tional Rally in In­ver­cargill that In­gram is set to at­tend.

In­gram hopes the club ac­cu­mu­lates en­thu­si­asm enough to get a con­tin­gent to­gether to at­tend the next rally.
