Welcome to Scotland - Glasgow

A short history of JEC GLASGOW REGION

The Regional Club was founded in 1990.

The story began shortly after Jim Colville purchased his Series II Jaguar XJ6.

Jim did not know how to restore the car so he asked around and he was advised to join the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club. When he started reading the Club's Magazine he thought there might be a need for a Glasgow Region.

He contacted the area liaison person at that time and assistance was duly rendered. The Club gave Jim a note of all the existing signed up national members in his area and off he went. Jim then sent out 80 letters inviting them to form a JEC Glasgow Regional Club and received three replies.

The four resulting founding members were:

Ken Gorman, Chris Magnus, Ken Rae and Jim Colville. The first meeting was held in August 1990 at the Burnside Hotel in Burnside, Rutherglen. The four members each took a turn with the expenses to help get the club off the ground.

After 28 years the Region's club night is still at the Burnside Hotel.

Three of the four founding members, Jim Colville, Ken Gorman & Chris Magnus, are still active members of JEC Glasgow Region. If you need advice, or just want to talk Jaguar for an evening, the Burnside Hotel is a must. Within the Regional membership there is a vast body of knowledge on all things Jaguar.
