Illinois Jaguar Club
Club information 

The Illinois Jaguar Club (IJC) was formed in the fall of 1999 by combining the two Chicago-area Jaguar Clubs: the Jaguar Association of Greater Chicago (JAGC, a JCNA affiliate) and the Northern Illinois Jaguar Driver's Club (NIJDC, an independent organization). The goal of the IJC is to provide a JCNA-affiliated club that supports all types of Jaguar enthusiast, including concours enthusiasts, drivers, tinkerers, rebuilders, polishers, etc. Currently the IJC has a roster of approximately 150 members from all over Illinois and the Chicago area. IJC members own, show, and drive a wide variety of Jaguar cars, encompassing everything from an SS-100 to the brand-new I-Pace Suv. For additional info please go to:


Check our newsletter for this years upcoming events. We have a drive in the Spring and Fall, a Jaguar Festival and Concours d'Elegance in the summer and wild holiday party in January, plus occasional ad hoc events.
