Heart of America Jaguar Club
Club information 

Welcome to our website! The Heart Of America Jaguar Club (HOAJC) was formed in 1973 and serves Jaguar enthusiasts in the Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri area. We are part of the Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA, but we do have our own board of directors, club officers and own financial resources. Our main purpose is to enjoy our Jaguars. We do so through many different events throughout the year. On average there will be at least one event every month. We organize an annual JCNA sanctioned concours d’elegance and a slalom event. This means that your local results in the concours and or slalom will be recognized on a national level by the JCNA. It’s good fun. Everybody can participate on an appropriate level. Whether you’re a novice to slalom driving or use your Jaguar as your daily drive, you can still participate in the concours d’elegance! In addition we organize many events like tours, tech sessions, etc. We have regular club meetings where we discuss recent and upcoming events. Although it’s our passion for Jaguars that brings us together you will find that all our events are very much social gatherings as well, appealing to owners of both classic and modern Jaguars. As a member of our club you will also be receiving the quarterly JCNA magazine and our own club newsletter. And you will be able to use the on-line JCNA shoppe which offers a wide variety of goods, ranging from Jaguar memorabilia to Jaguar styled clothing, manuals and Jaguar car badges Click on the Upcoming Event link to view details of our upcoming events, and if you like what you see, you can now join online for immediate membership activation! Not sure yet? Come and see us and participate in one of our events to experience it for yourself! We’d be happy to provide some more information. Please contact our President Rick VanTuyl (816-718-3830 or or Jon Mensie (913-385-0643 or for more details




 2017 HOAJC Provisional Calender

The following has been received and we are passing the info along to club members:
Rick, my name is Jim Barber and I'm from Independence, MO. I think our paths have crossed before, long ago I was president of the KC Porsche Club. In any case, I have 3 Jag XKE's that I have ended up with the responsibility of selling. I wanted to offer them to Jag Club members first but have run afoul of problems with the national web site so thought I would ask you for advice.
The cars are: '69 ots, blue with blue leather, 4 speed, very nice car with an older (01) show winning (World of Wheels) restoration at a cost of $118,000, driven about 38k since, no trailer queen buy a very nice car. A '69 2+2 with automatic and air, also a very expensive older restoration with few miles, red with bisquit, and a '67 fhc , red with black interior, a beautiful car with next to no miles since restoration, 3 carb motor with stick.
If you could be kind enough to spare me a little time or point me to someone who might be of help I would be forever in your debt.  Phone (816) 260-7424, email ( Thank you.
