florian sounds very typical for a car restoration to run over time. ask anyone who has ever done one if it was completed "on time", or for many, if it was even ever completed! :o
so i wouldn't be too hard on yourself. most things car take longer than they should, but will be all the more rewarding when its finished.
look forward to seeing it one day at a show.

You are right of course but I was still sad a little bit.

But the Chasseur becomes a new car, that makes me very happy

NO, there is no leaper, only a joke from the mechanic to covert it :roll: :o

I will only start a new planning, when he is registered.
The southern day is not possible for us, because my wife gets no leave on this date.

I'm looking forward to see you any time and hope to see many meetings in future.
Maybe next year when there will be a new "black sheep meet"?

best wishes

The northern day was quite far north and the southern day couldnt be much further south, why not a midlands day? After all, thats where they were built. Just a thought..... Not really complaning, driving a 40 for a couple of hours is no hardship, except on the wallet!

What about a trip to Browns lane Jaguar Heritage Museum before it moves in September :?:

(I hope I got that info right, I'm sure Neil McPherson told me that at the Black Sheep meet - I actually do have a poor memory after recent medical issues, just need to remember where i put the notes to jog my memory :lol: )

I've got a free calendar during August weekends (will check with the Boss when she gets back from work) and as I've never been to the museum, or Coventry come to think of it, would be well up for a day out in the Midlands :D

This is from the website -

"OUR HISTORY FIRST HAND

The Jaguar Heritage Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of this remarkable company. Based on the site of the former Browns Lane plant in Coventry - Jaguar's spiritual home - the museum was opened in 1998 and celebrates the history of Jaguar Cars and associated marques including Swallow, SS, Lanchester and Daimler. It contains a selection from Jaguar Heritage's collection of over 120 vehicles dating from 1896 onwards.

The collection began life in the mid-1950s when Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons brought together some of his early models. These can now be seen alongside classic Jaguar racing cars and other iconic models from the past. Images, brochures and factory records from an extensive archive give valuable insights into how these beautiful cars were produced.

Jaguar Heritage works closely with schools and colleges to introduce a new generation to Coventry’s motoring heritage, and hosts educational activities at the museum. It also provides a range of services to owners and enthusiasts including Heritage Certificates, Classic Parts and a shop that offers a wide range of merchandise and technical publications.

VISITING THE MUSEUM

The museum is open during business hours from Monday to Friday and on the last Sunday of every month.
The displays change regularly as vehicles are sometimes loaned out for events or to dealers.

For more information, please call +44 (0) 24 76 401291 or click here.

I've just had a good look at the JDHT website, and can see no mention of a move in September, which means I may be wildly mistaken :oops:

However, what about Sunday 28th Aug?

Never having been, I bow to those with superior knowledge and contacts, any advice?

Cheers,

Your country isn't so big that you couldn't drive from north to south?! :o :lol:

And the Northern Day is in the middle of GB, not in the Highlands?


It's a perfect idea to visit the jdht!
It will move??
The september would be much better for us.

Florian , you have to understand it is easier to travel 2 or 300 miles in Germany than the UK , to be fair to the JEC though i think they try very hard to organise meetings to make it accessible to as many members as possible but you will never please everybody ;)

well chaps there is no Northern or Southern days next year within the JEC, just one big national event at Weston Park

there was a Midlands Day at Coventry airport in June

I too also understand thet JH have to be off site by September, but be aware the 120 cars quoted are not all available for veiwing, about 25/30 are on show at any one time, the rest are in secure storage, i now know where too, after many questions after the Browns Lane storage closed and was demolished
