Re: 1936 Jensen For Sale at Auction

Agree that this is a lovely looking car.

The listing is now no longer available and listed as expired today - does that mean it is sold?
Can any of our ace sleuths discover where it has gone or who owns it?

Bridal car for aficionado

Had the pleasure of giving H5 a special run to take my son's bride to their wedding. Jonny was a frequent visitor to the Jensen Weekends, actively participating in the socialising and fun of the Jensen dinner and dance, so naturally there was only one car for his big occasion. The wedding was in Ble...

Re: Dave Newby

Thanks to all who gave Dave a fitting send off, with a touching report, he will be missed by all but never forgotten plus I am sure his family will continue to be part of the JOC family!

Re: Radiator grille Jensen S- or H- Type?

The obvious question to ask is where this came from - I can see the sellers interest in it due to his name, but which of the rare cars did this come from? I would have my doubts that the S type and H type radiator shells are the same, but Richard may be able to comment - I assume thsi would have com...

Clarkson article on the Interceptor

It seems that Clarkson has written an article on the Interceptor in the Sunday Times - this was on the 3rd March. I have looked but cannot get the whole article as you need to subscribe - did anyone spot this? It seems that he has been disparaging (how unusual) but reckons you can pick up a good one...

Re: New Lansdowne Model Jensen

Thank you - will order one.
Any chance they might be doing the 4 1/4 litre, PW, or the original Interceptor (1950's) next?

Re: New Lansdowne Model Jensen

Mike
I would like to have one, but they don't seem to actually be selling them yet - perhaps I need to block off a few cylinders to make my Jensen a 3.5 convertible and so become eligible!
Should I wait a little longer or is there a magic inside track?
Regards

Re: 1939 Jensen

This would either be an S type, with the ford 3.5 litre V8 or the H type, like mine, with the Nash 4 1/4 litre straight 8.
Would be great if you could post the pictures and provide more information!

As previously stated - great photos! I may be mistaken, but is the convertible in photo Jensen 07-0002 an FF with the 2 side air intakes? It also appears in a few other pictures - was this the special prepared for Dave Horton? I believe is still in the club so perhaps the current owner will like the...

Waddesdon Manor

Can we get back to John's original suggestion - the CV8 was designed as a Gentleman's express for high speed touring without being held up by mere mortals Fords or Triumphs (or Messerschmidts), not for screaming round a race track, especially after 50 years! Obviously the Nurburgring would be great ...

Wonderful weekend with nice people, even if Dan is better able at sorting out old british leyland V8s rather than the hi-tech Chrysler units!
Would anyone be able to give me a contact for Mike Jensen? - I promised to give him my e-mail, but missed him before he went!
Thanks

I have to concede that the best team won - I have now switched allegiance to my fathers's land (being half German) and have replaced my English flag with a German one

Sorry - I did not realise that you think we take our football players seriously!
It seems both our teams can only manage 1 goal each!
:oops:
(we don't count goals against Australia!)

Wir werden gewinnen!!!
