So far

The side vents, ( one mesh / one slatted )
I've been wondering about the mesh side vents on my car. Most (all?) of the cars I have seen have slats. Were the mesh side vents an option or are they a later modification to my car?

Felix:

very nice. I wasn't at all sure that I was going to like the white color but I've come to think that Interceptors look very good in white!

All the best

There is an article in Motor Trend Classic on Nissan Skyline GT-R. I thought that the 1973 Kenmeri GT-R, of which only 197 were made, has an Interceptor look to it.

My Interceptor

Here are three views of my 1974 Interceptor, 2210-9495. The pictures were taken at Cold Spring Harbor, on the north shore of Long Island New York. The buildings that can be seen in the background of the photos are Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. https://www.joc.org.uk/forum_images/albums/j421/JanAWit...

I haven't felt so cool since I was featured in "Wired" magazine. Which Issue of Wired (I must have missed it)? It was way back in 2003 in an article on "The Connectors: Meet the hypernetworked nodes who secretly run the world." Wired's language not mine. This is a link to a shor...

I have had my 1974 Interceptor for just over three months and it continues to arouse intense interest here on Long Island, New York, especially among the young faculty and graduate students. I haven't felt so cool since I was featured in "Wired" magazine. In the USA, the scarcity of Jensen...

This car wasn't exactly on the road -it was a couple of minutes later - but I thought it was worth showing. It is a Fiat 8V, one of only 12 with the Supersonic body by Ghia. (I wish I had had my friend take a photo of the rear lights - they look like rocket engines.) This particular one was sold in ...

car chase

Rather off topic as there is not a Jensen in sight but entertaining and interesting nevertheless. (Apologies if this is already known to the list.)

Long Island Jensens

I live in Huntington, Long Island, NY, and have just taken possession of my first Jensen Interceptor, a 1974 Mk III.

I'd like to take it to mechanics and restorers on Long Island who have experience of Jensens. Are there any JOC members on Long Island who can make recommendations?

Thank you.
