THE SACRAMENTO JAGUAR CREW

Toward the end of 2008, a group of SJC members who liked to maintain their own Jaguars, discussed the possibility of working on project Jaguars. That would entail finding distressed Jaguars to repair to avoid seeing them go to the wrecking yard. And, the Crew was born.

The initial projects were conducted in Crew member's garages. In September 2009, one bay in a three bay detached garage in Loomis was rented to accommodate a longer duration project (it took two years). Over time the work space was expanded to two bays, then two and a half bays and a four post lift was added. 

In addition to completing a variety of Crew member Jaguar maintenance chores, we are now up to major project number nine. Four projects were successful (and the Jaguars stayed in the club). Two failed and eventually went to salvage and three are now in progress. We have rebuilt three XK type engines, completely rewired two Jaguars and repaired three XK hydraulic brake systems and installed two convertible tops.

Our current projects include a 1953 XK120 FHC full body off restoration, a 1958 Mark IX Saloon that had not been operated for 40 years and a 1985 XJ6 that has a list of 19 issues to be resolved. Monthly progress is reported in each issue of the JagWyre newsletter.
