READ­ERS’ WRITES

New Zealand Classic Car - - CONTENTS -

In Septem­ber 1998, we were taken by friends to the Jaguar Daim­ler Her­itage Trust’s new mu­seum, which was due to open. There was a gen­eral air of chaos, and we got in­volved in se­lect­ing cars from Jaguar’s Browns Lane stor­age fa­cil­ity and driv­ing them around to the mu­seum, and then ar­rang­ing the lay­out in the mu­seum. Of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est were the line-up of un­sold XJ220S all wrapped up. I be­lieve that ul­ti­mately one dealer bought this re­main­ing stock, which were avail­able for some­thing like £114K. Also of in­ter­est was a large num­ber of Jaguar pro­to­types in Car­coons, some of which I was not al­lowed to pho­to­graph at the time.

The line- up of XJ220S must have been an amaz­ing sight. Thanks for shar­ing, Keith. AFW
