    The car is stored at my engineer's workshop near Silverstone and once we start work on it I would be delighted to meet you there and show you the car again.

    Best, John

    Hi Gerald,
    I got your email with the great pic (many thanks!) but every time I try to reply to your email address it is rejected "due to possible spam content" which it certainly doesn't have! Any ideas??

    Gerald, I tried sending emails with pictures, then with no pictures - same result, even when I tried not replying, but starting a fresh email from scratch... Sent a personal message on Facebook, too. Maybe better to communicate there, rather than hijacking this thread? Could be something to do with your spam settings, perhaps...?

    Great thread. Thanks for saving AQ5800. Fabulous car.

    I own a Pearl Grey Jaguar Mark I - originally delivered with a 2.4 engine to Archibald’s Garage, Christchurch, New Zealand, ostensibly ordered for Dr Philip Melville-Heath. However, this car arrived on 27 March 1958 and was used by Archibald for 17 months until 2 September 1959, when it was finally registered AL 6200 to Dr Melville-Heath.

    Does anyone have pictures of Ray's Mark I cars? (I believe he had two, the second one likely a 1959 car arriving right when my car was finally registered).

    I'm also looking for the original NZ plates for the car (or reproductions) AL 6200. Does anyone know where to get 1958 type NZ plates made up?

    My car is now looked after by CKL and I am planning to race some select races in Europe in 2021.
    All best, Simon

    Another pic from 1975, outside our student flat in Ranfurly Rd, Epsom, Auckland. I was known to sport a deerstalker hat and a calabash pipe a la Sherlock Holmes...what a twit!

    ChrisL,

    turned the photo - and also had a look at the " Carjam " site [ connected to NZTA Motor Registrations - Both Rego plates ;
    " DU6477 " and " DJ5788 " are no longer showing.

    Do you know where the XK120 is now ?
