FUEL THE PASSION

The Jaguar Car Club of Victoria is about you. It’s about connecting people of all backgrounds with varying interests in the marque, so that you and your family can enjoy and fully realise the numerous benefits of being a member of the JCCV. The club seeks to provide, through its various activities, a happy and fulfilling environment for you...

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Although admiration for the Jaguar marque is an all important aspect of the JCCV, the club's emphasis is not just on the cars. Our members are what makes the club and their enjoyment and welfare are also of primary importance. Accordingly, we plan activities throughout the year so that members, their partners, children and grandchildren can participate and enjoy a wide variety of activities and social functions through out the year. Members and their families are encouraged to attend the monthly general meetings at our club rooms, which provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere...

CLUB PERMIT SCHEME

The Club Permit Scheme (CPS) allows members of the JCCV to have limited use of historic vehicles on the road network. Vehicles must be at least 25 years old to participate in the scheme. You MUST be a member of the JCCV for a minimum of 30 days before being eligible to apply for a Club Permit under the Club's CPS for a Jaguar and 12-months for a non-Jaguar.

SHOW OFF

The focal point of the club is of course the Jaguar cars that we greatly admire and to this end, one thing our members love is to join other enthusiasts and show off their pride and joy. The Jaguar Car Club of Victoria (JCCV) participates and supports various interclub displays, charities and events each year, the highlight of which is our annual Concours & Display Day held in November.

SPORTING

For those interested in driving their Jaguars in a somewhat more spirited manner, the JCCV offers members the opportunity to participate in a variety of events in a controlled and safe environment on one of the many race circuits around Victoria including; Winton, Philip Island, Sandown, etc. Through the club's affiliation with the Marque Sports Car Association (MSCA), the JCCV offers...

WE'VE COME A LONG WAY

The year was 1962 Dawn Fraser broke the minute barrier for 100m freestyle, NASA's Mariner 2 becomes the first spacecraft to fly by Venus, Lawrence of Arabia was voted the movie of the year and a dozen Jaguar owners got together and founded what is now the oldest Jaguar Club in Australia.

OUR MEETING PLACE

Our meeting place is a credit to the vision of early members who formed an alliance with the Austin Healey Club and purchased our own clubrooms. They are discreetly located in Springvale and offer members a comfortable club ambience and relaxed atmosphere befitting these fine British marques and their owners. The club rooms offer a large meeting room equipped with full audio visual facilities, lounge room, conference room, library, merchandise shop, kitchen and licensed bar. The club rooms have easy access for wheelchairs and provide comfortable seating and conveniences to make anyone's visit a pleasurable experience.

  • The President's Report

    by Stuart Cleland
     President - Stuart Cleland 

    I opened a weekend magazine recently and there was a panoramic photo of the five current Jaguar models, with the Thames river and Tower Bridge in

    the background. Five models, as the ad said, “is the broadest range in Jaguar’s history, each built from lightweight aluminium” (I guess not heavyweight aluminium). The base drive-away prices for the five models are XJ $218,000 ; F-Type $130,000; XF $93,000; the new SUV F-Pace $83,000; and XE $70,000.

    Jaguar XJ-S Turns 40!

    With the XJC 40th Anniversary and all the hype surrounding Sir William Lyons last hands-on creation and rarest production model we should also pause for a moment to consider the legendary XJ-S. In fact the XJ-S was unveiled in Australia alongside the XJC, up on the banks of the Murray in Mildura.The XJ-S was the key focus, being the much anticipated replacement of the E-Type and was draped in an elaborate striped cover, whilst the XJC had a plain white cover set in the background. 40 years on, the celebrations taking place in Echuca will now turn the focus on the XJC with a select number of XJ-S’s being interspersed amongst the 35 or so contingent of XJC’s. Amongst the XJ-S’s will be Gavin & Lynda Moore’s exquisitely presented XJ-S, as it appears on the front of this month’s CAT-A-LOG.

    The Jaguar XJC Story

    Amongst the world’s most beautiful cars.
    1973 German Motor Show Jaguar XJ6C by John Mann

    The Jaguar and Daimler XJ Coupes are amongst the world’s most beautiful cars. It is also Jaguar’s rarest production car with fewer than 10,500 built between 1975 and 1977.

    These cars are the two door version of the XJ6 four door saloon. When Sir William Lyons began styling exercises for the new XJ models in the mid 1960’s, it was obvious that he had notions of a two door coupe in mind for eventual production. Many of these early styling mock-ups were based on the coupe theme in various shapes, forms and sizes, and the XJC was the last Jaguar car to be designed and built by Sir William Lyons.

    Club Permit Scheme

    by Robyn & Neville Lockstone, JCCV Club Permit Officers

     

    We have had a busy past year which saw the introduction of major changes in the way the Scheme/System operates. The total number of members’ vehicles managed by our Club is now almost 400 which represents an increase of over 100 per cent in

    the last 3 years. To assist all permit holders the A.O.M.C. have published a Permit Holders Handbook which fully explains the Scheme, answers questions and explains the Vic Roads regulations applicable. These Handbooks are now available from your Club at cost, $5.00 per copy, and it is recommended that a copy be kept in your vehicle with the Log book.

    Vic Roads have delegated the major responsibility for administration of the Scheme to sponsoring Clubs. At current growth rate we will have 500 members’ vehicles to manage in 2016/2017 and we need members’ co-operation.

    The following are current problems:

    - When a new permit is finalised it is the permit holder’s responsibility to advise us of the issued Plate number. This is not always happening.

    - If a permit holder disposes of the vehicle the date of sale/disposal must be advised to us.

    - All documents must be forwarded to us in full. For instance we have had half road worthy certificates sent. This makes it hard to keep a full file copy as required by Vic Roads. Also renewals are sent to us with log book sticker and car sticker removed. We cannot authenticate and sign what we do not have and Vic Road cannot print on a receipt validation.

    Renewals are normally sent out up to 8 weeks before they are due. If not approved and paid by the due date the vehicle cannot be driven on the road. It is treated as unregistered. The permit can be renewed after the due date but only up to three (3) months maximum. After that the permit is cancelled, with no right of appeal (Vic Roads written instruction).

    The current Club Permit Scheme is a good system with enormous savings to members. We ask your help in making it work for the benefit of all. It would greatly assist us if a stamped addressed return enveloped is included.
