    Jaguar S-Type 3.8

    One of Auto Motor Klassiek's loyal readers approached us in an original way. He just emailed a valuation report of a Jaguar S-Type 3.8. Admittedly, that didn't lie. A very charming car was thoroughly assessed on numerous points. A report you can take home with you! We understood very well what the More

    Citroën DS 20 Break. The Nose of the Pike.

    When owner Marc gladly informs me that we are allowed to photograph a great 50 year old 7 seater station wagon, it can be German, French, Swedish or American, but in any case something beautiful. When a few days later I am in a neighborhood in Amstelveen where a garage door slowly has a pointed nose with a split More

    Panther J72

    Sometimes a car presents itself and you are not sure what to think of it. A car that does not fit in a box and cannot be interpreted. Is it beautiful now? The yellow license plates are confusing me. You expect blue with such an antique model, right? And is there on the More

    Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 LWB … Smooth Operator – drive with a smile

    Say “X300” and the connoisseur will know it is the fifth Jaguar XJ generation, built from 1994 to 1997. The executive Jag came on the market in several versions. One of the top versions in the range was the Daimler Sovereign trim level. For example, it was regularly ordered in combination with a long wheelbase. It was also possible to order the extended Edelbrit as a Jaguar Sovereign. And we had the opportunity to drive precisely this version. A masterful executive, which is equipped with the blissful 4.0 liter six-in-line engine.

    Jaguar Mk10: A plus size model

    They have been considered parts donors for years. Because such an obese Jaguar Mark Ten (and the 420 G) according to Jaguar terms had quite a few things that you could use for a Jaguar that looked like a Jaguar was intended. More

    A concours d'élégance.

    A Concours d'élégance. Kind of like a beauty pageant for classics. And just like a beauty pageant, it is about so much more than a nice face above a pleasantly sculpted body. It's about quality and perfection down to the last detail. More

    SS Party!

    SS Cars is the progenitor of the respected and esteemed Jaguar. 'SS' of course stood for 'Swallow Sidecars', later for Swallow Special. But through Sir William Lyons himself, 'SS' already stands for 'Standard Swallow' in the pre-war 'Jaguars'. Standard was the supplier of the engine blocks. And that that brand name after the Second World War did not seem to be the pinnacle of tight marketing? So something was found there. SS Cars became 'Jaguar'. Sir Lyons had traditionally chosen that name from 500 animal names. And it turned out not to be a bad choice. More

    Jaguar SS: Purchase and restoration

    An unrestored Jaguar SS is still rarely offered… For 3-5 mille you can already start a challenging project with a lot of welding. An imported example from a dry American state usually starts at about 8-10 grand. Although in these strange times and with drifting government policy, an (American!) seller sometimes panics More

    Jaguar E-Type noses

    The Jaguar E-Type is without a doubt a fantastically beautiful automobile. People who disagree with that are one hundred percent brand blind or extra gloomy. But beauty, of course, is only outward appearances. And impermanent. And the old adage is 'he who defiles his nose, desecrates his face'. The nose of a Jaguar E-Type More

    Jaguar XJ12 ... so British

    For us as classic enthusiasts, this is not a happy atmosphere for this stylish Brit. Despite the state of the Jaguar XJ12, we can still enjoy the curvaceous body lines. We are sometimes attacked by a melancholic thought to get the classic out of the long grass for next to nothing. This symbol of wealth More

    Jaguar SS100. And a party

    The Jaguar Daimler Club Holland is a club where they are not afraid of events that involve a lot of work. And one of the biggest brains behind those exclusive events is Rob van Pernis. And so it came to the Happy Birthday SS-Event Sir William Lyons' birthday on More
