FAVOURITE LYONS-ERA JAGUAR?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

KEITH ADAMS ED­I­TOR

Could I cheat and say the XJ41/42? It was an F-Type 20 years be­fore its time, and ended up mor­ph­ing into the lovely As­ton Martin DB7.

GER­VAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

The prim­i­tive, ugly, cramped but fan­tas­tic XKSS of 1957 – a road­go­ing con­ver­sion of the D-type, and E-type pre­de­ces­sor.

LEISE EN­RIGHT OF­FICE MAN­AGER

Any of them as long it’s not green, like the one on the right. And fancy call­ing a car ‘X’. That Lyons bloke must have been a right laugh.

MUR­RAY SCULLION NEWS ED­I­TOR

D-type for me. Fan­tas­tic his­tory, plus if it’s good enough for Nor­man Dewis, it’s good enough for me. Ecurie Ecosse liv­ery too, please.

CALUM BROWN WEB PRO­DUCER

I like my Jags how I like my women – feisty, sleek and grace­ful. So it would have to be the Mk2 Jag for me in all its un­re­li­able splen­dour.

RICHARD GUNN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR

I’m go­ing to be de­lib­er­ately ob­tuse and pick a pre-Jaguar - the lovely lit­tle Austin Seven Swal­low, with­out which all sub­se­quent Jags wouldn’t have hap­pened.

GIL­LIAN CAR­MOODIE CON­TRIB­U­TOR

A 1959 Lister-Jaguar ‘Costin’ race­car for me, please. El­e­gant 1950s styling com­bined with a first-class mo­tor rac­ing back­ground – ab­so­lutely ir­re­sistible!
