A-Jaguar-key Vintage Jaguar Key Rings 1955-1980

By JCNA member Morril "Bud" Marston this story of post WWII Jaguar Key Fobs is complete!  Although largely forgotten for more than half a century this story wrapped in an impenetrable mist and now exposed by a dedicated researcher and Jaguar enthusiast. Bud Marston's book reveals the story of Jaguar heritage of more than three hundred splendid motoring talismans form Jaguar's storied past.

During the period in question Jaguar produced more than 350,000 cars yet it is possible that fewer than 1000 of these beautiful hand crafted fobs survive. Certainly no living individual has seen more than a fraction of them. Bud Marston was determined to assemble a collection of these fobs and now shares his careful research with the public. 

288 pages hard cover with illustrated dust cover and many full color photographs.

A-JAGUAR-SIX JAGUAR E-Type Six Cylinder Originality Guide by Haddock/Mueller

This is the continued work of Dr. Haddock who has two previous editions of the E-Type Originality guide in circulation. Previous editions of his work escalated in price once out of print. This work is simply the first two works on steroids. It is granular in detail down to the correct original wheel weights, minor casting changes, hidden identification numbers and factory markings. We are quite sure some of these documented changes were not realized even by the maker.

Both authors are proud JCNA members with Dr. Mueller serving on the JCNA rules committee (JCRC). JCNA is proud that the publisher has given us this first opportunity to have this necessary and seminal work!

Offered again to JCNA members at significant savings. ORDER YOURS NOW!!!

Thorley The Complete book of Jaguar by Thorley

The Complete Book of Jaguarcovers every production model from the original SS to today’s F-Type sports cars and X-Type sedans, with narratives, photos, and spec tables for each.

In 1935, when a small company in Coventry, England, launched a sporting saloon (i.e., sedan) called the Jaguar SS, it set in motion an inexorable process that would lead to Britain’s most beloved line of high-performance automobiles. The Complete Book of Jaguar covers the SS and all of the Jaguar's subsequent production models, from the original SS Jaguar to today’s F-Type sports cars, F-Pace SUV, X-Type sedans, as well as concept cars.

As with other books in the Complete Book Series, author Nigel Thorley organizes the content chronologically with entries for each yearNarratives for each discuss the cars and technology, while spec tables highlight key technical and performance specifications.

Originally begun by a couple of motorcycle enthusiasts—William Lyons and William Walmsley—as a firm called the Swallow Sidecar Company, Jaguar would become one of the world's most celebrated automakers. In England’s bleak postwar years, Jaguar became a shining star—first with its XK120, followed by the XK140 and XK150. Sporting sedans like the Mark 2 and Mark X set the bar for luxury four-door transport in the '50s and '60s. Then Jaguar stunned the world with the achingly beautiful E-Type in 1961, a genuine 150 mph super sports car.

Along the way, the company competed on road courses around the world, going head to head with greats like Ferrari and Aston Martin. Though Jaguar lost its way periodically in the modern era, it has bounded back stronger than ever in the twenty-first century with a strong lineup, including the new F-Type sports car and F-Pace SUV.

The Complete Book of Jaguar is the essential guide to this important chapter in the history of sports and luxury automobiles.
