Re: Matrix Models Jensen GT

Yes all Matrix Models are thoroughly researched, and the detail is wonderful.
As for price, I know that Raj has ordered some of each colour in, and they will be a better price than on ebay!

Matrix Models Jensen GT

At Last, a 1:43 model of a Jensen GT is about to hit the Regalia and model world, hopefully for Christmas! Made after consultation with myself, Rob Heydon, Ken Cassell and Alison Lawrence, it promises to be a really accurate example, and the only model made of the GT. Made in China and commissioned ...

Re: Hampton Court Concours 4-6 Sept (Photos / Video)

Thanks for all the kind words folks, and Chris and I really enjoyed the day too. The herd of deer was a wonderful display as well - amazing that they were so attracted to our Jensens that they ran past once then turned and ran past again! Thanks to all of your who attended, whether with your cars, s...

Hampton Court Concours Jensen Display - STOP PRESS**

Due to two cancellations, we have spaces funded by the club for driver/car, in the Display at Hampton Court on Saturday 5th September. Ideally, I'd like an FF and a 541, as we have many Interceptors, but anyone with a nice, presentable Jensen please contact me on southdowns@joc.org.uk for more detai...

Re: E10 Petrol

I'm pleased to report that now that Brian has filled up with Esso Supreme again recently, his previous findings on this petrol remain sound. He emailed me with the following announcement - The fuel I picked up was in Camberley, and was zero ethanol. However, the Esso website still says that the only...

Re: E10 Petrol

This topic was covered by Brian Philpott in a letter in the February 2019 issue of the magazine. Brian tests his petrol every time he fills up, and confirmed then that Esso Supreme was still free of ethanol, despite what may be written on the pump. Apparently, this may not apply to Devon and Cornwal...

Re: Cranleigh Classic Car Show Sunday 9th August

Yes indeed, certainly see you there in 2021! Fortunately, their booking arrangements mean that everyone of the 9 Jensen owners who booked will all have received their cancellation notification. What a blow, I'd hoped that Cranleigh would have been the great day out for us after a long summer that it...

Re: A Responsible Approach to Classic Car Motoring

I believe, and sincerely hope, we should view my proposals as a small yet sensible approach to improving the climate/atmosphere of our planet. I also hope that most people already know of the elliptical axis, mini ice ages and their effects, and also realise that climate scientists around the globe ...

Re: A Responsible Approach to Classic Car Motoring

I can recommend a small and local to me organisation - the Sussex Wildlife Trust, that has launched a project called "Help Our Kelp" and all monies sent to the trust intended for this project will be spent on it. It has been set up to restore the Kelp forests along the south coast of Engla...

Re: A Responsible Approach to Classic Car Motoring

Thanks for your support Adrian and Colin. On average I do about 800 miles per year in my C-V8. Entering that figure and 15 mpg, the Carbon Care Calculator gives me a carbon offset value of £4.02 - not a terrible burden! We can either do this individually, or together as a club. We'd just need to kno...

A Responsible Approach to Classic Car Motoring

It’s time we as a classic car club of some standing took a lead in the field of Climate change. In a nutshell, I would like to propose that after taking into account the annual mileage of its members in their Jensens, the club, or individual members, then calculate the value of the carbon emitted, a...

Re: Hampton Court Concours Saturday 5th September

Hi Phil,
I'm right on the limit of numbers at the moment, so you'll be first reserve, and we''ll see how the whole plan unfolds.
Please can you email me with full details of your car, age, reg, colour and number of passengers and we 'll go from there if that's OK with you.
Cheers
David
