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...
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...
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.
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.
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...
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 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.
Our February monthly meeting, the first for the year, began early with a barbecue to allow members to mingle and catch up. Thanks to David Lyon and Keith Mortimer for organising the food and cooking the barbecue. Thank you for your donations, the money will be used for charity. It was encouraging to see so many members in attendance. I guess you must have missed “chewing the fat (or should I say the sausage) about all things Jaguar”.

How would you like to have these two daily drivers to use regularly? Well JCCV Geelong register secretary Steve Temple is one member many might envy. Steve’s award-winning XF takes him to work at the Geelong railyards where he then swaps turbo diesels for the City of Warrnambool locomotive.
Steve’s immaculate XF took out the Brighton Jaguar trophy for the overall Concours d’Etat winner at our recent Concours and Display Day. He has only had the car for a few months after deciding to switch from another late model Jag to the XF. Steve is delighted with the XF as it “drives like a real Jaguar”, and has great road-handling ability and torque. He spent a solid two weeks before the Concours preparing the XF which paid off in a strong field of entrants.Read More

XJC gathering before the 2017 Port Stephens National Rally.
Following the hugely successful 2015 Muster of XJC’s in Echuca to celebrate 40 years of the marque, there was enthusiastic agreement from all States to participate in a road trip in March 2017 which will incorporate the National Rally in Port Stephens. The group of Victorian XJC owners agreed that it would be a good idea to meet before some of them set off in March so there was a pre-gathering in early February. What better venue than at the beautiful Mandala winery in the Yarra Valley over a superb lunch.
