Concours Sportscar Restorations Australian Classic Wire Wheels

Garry Baxter

Garry with his Heritage Register Cars 

This role really suits me best, I was born in 1956 which is the mist of the registers’ many model release dates. I find it interesting listening to the stories from Jaguar owners who speak of their experiences with many of these heritage saloon models from years gone by. I am also quite intrigued with the life histories of many of these cars.

My first involvement with this register was in February 2021 when I purchased a 1950 Mark 5 that needs a full restoration as it has been in storage in a partially dismantled condition for over 30 years.  This was followed by the vehicles listed below which are currently registered on HVS with the JDCA.

1948 Mark 4 - purchased March 2022.

1965 Mark 10 - purchased May 2022.

1950 Mark 5 - purchased October 2022.

1957 Mark 8 - purchased May 2023.

My aim is to learn and share knowledge regarding Jaguars belonging to this register and to keep them in circulation for generations to come.

Please note, I do have a few newer Jaguars as my wife Susan appreciates a few of the finer things in life, such as air conditioning, seat belts, power steering, power windows and a modern level of comfort for long-distance journeys.

Please join me on this journey into the past where we can learn and traveltogether.
