As a result of previous efforts by our Members Messrs Peter Clark/e-s, who are/were also running/members of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, the JEC Regional Committee had again extended an invitation to the SVVS to join them at their Thursday July meeting. The invitation was specific to Members attending in their oldies and to display them along with JEC Jaguars. 

The turnout was probably the best of the current joint venture. It was difficult to say who provided the greater numbers because some of the SVVS Members came in their Jaguars and some of the JEC Members in their 'other' cars!  Nobody took official note of SVVS attendees, but from the photos it is possible to spot some proper SVVS cars. Jaguars
included Messers Chairman Mohaceks in the go-faster supercharged XKR (which would have been frowned on at an SVVS meeting as a 'modern', but Chairman is also member of the JEC ; so there!). A couple of SVVS XKs were there belonging to Messers Goisset and Messers Curtis. A brace of Midgets came the circuitous route driven by Rick Hone and Simon Mohacek.  MGB GT of Alan Pratt and the Ireland Rolls were there too. The white NG belonged to Peter Clark and the blue Morgan to Ken Berry. Bruce Glover came in, I think, a TR. As I do not have a current 'car list with reg numbers', apologies for them wot was missed out. 

The Museum complex houses exhibits of cars, motorcycles, cycles, and aircraft. Some vehicles are exhibited in the Clubhouse, mostly in the Malcolm Cable & ERA Shed, and the adjacent Jackson Shed. The vintage aircraft are housed in the massive Hangar. A number of military and civil aircraft are scattered outside in the grounds, including the magnificent CONCORDE. That is some beastie!!

During the evening arrangements had been made for all of the Museums buildings to be open to both sets of assembled visitors and for them to be able to wander around at will. Guides were available in each building to give expert information. It was  a wonderful opportunity for those who had not been to Brooklands, or those who had not been for a while, to go at a time that the place is not packed out with screaming weekend kids spilling ice cream over ancient machinery. 

After more than adequate time to slowly peruse and photograph all the exhibits, everybody retired to the splendid Brooklands Members Bar for a glass of pop and a chat. Many Thanks to JEC for a superb evening and many thanks to Brooklands for opening the exhibits!
