Revival of old classics
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.
