"COVENTRY ON THE SHORE OF THE SOUTH SEA"

Jaguar

JaguarAn oldtimer top event in our country, the 31e edition of the National Oldtimerday, takes place on Sunday 21 June next on the Bataviaboulevard in Lelystad. One of the themes of the attractive day program this year is a 'Hall of Fame 80 year Jaguar'.
In 1935, 'Swallow Sidecars' introduced a new line of automobiles under the impetus of director-founder William Lyons and the type designation Jaguar was introduced. Founded in 1922 in Blackpool and moved to Coventry in 1928, the production was transferred from sidecar combinations to sports cars and saloons. The organizers of the National Old-timer Day do not let that remarkable moment in British automobile history pass unnoticed. In collaboration with the Jaguar Daimler Club Holland, the Historical Automobile Association of the Netherlands (HAV) and individual owners, orders are being formed in order of the year of construction that does justice to the many designs that have been born in the last eight decades. For understandable reasons, the brand name SS was canceled immediately after the Second World War and the Jaguar type designation was promoted to the brand name, which appeals to many to this day.
There are, for example, an SS 100 Jaguar Tourer (1936), SS I Jaguar 3.5 Saloon (1939), Jaguar 3.5 Mk V Saloon (1949), Jaguar Mk V 3 Position Drophead Coupe (1950), Jaguar XK 120 FHC (1952) XK 120 OTS (1953), Jaguar XK 120 FHC (1953), Jaguar XK 150 (1958), Jaguar E-type OTS Flatfloor (1961), Jaguar 3.8 Mk II Saloon (1962), Jaguar MkX Saloon (Jaguar XK) E-type Series I FHC (1963), Jaguar 1965 Saloon (420), Jaguar E-type Series DHC (1967), Jaguar E-type Series II (1967), Jaguar E-type FHC (1969).
In addition to these production models, a Jaguar XK 120-C (1953), Jaguar Model XK 180 (1996) and a Jaguar XK150 Vicarage Sport Special (1958) are on display. The XK 120-C is a sports car from the international touring car class in which Stirling Moss, among others, drove the 24 Hour of Le Mans. The XK 180 model is made in our country on the basis of two prototypes built by Jaguar. The Jaguar Board of Directors decided not to take these models into production because the cost estimate for production was too high. The XK 150 Vicarage 3.8 is a pure racer with an engine with 215 hp.

The participants in this 'Hall of Fame 80 Year Jaguar' receive a specially designed jubilee certificate issued by the British Consul General in our country, John Haseltine Cameron-Webb.
The Jaguar factory from Coventry is located on the banks of the formerly bustling Zuiderzee for one day. A unique overview of cars that earned their spurs in the Monte Carlo Rally, Mille Miglia, Targa Florio and Tupenrally, among others. Jaguar teams are nowadays successful in Grand Tourismo races, sprints and long distance races and rallies.


During the National Old-timer Day they are set up on production year and they pass by the visitors. A historic moment for the many enthusiasts.
The National Oldtimer Day is free of charge. Parking is possible at the large parking facility at Batavia Stad with 1.800 parking spaces.
