Applecross club members Corrie and Ian Maitland will have four Jaguars on display – two mids-60s Series 1 E-Types, a 1958 XK150 and a modern 2012 XJ.

Mr Maitland, now an experienced mechanic, fell in love with Jaguars while repairing them as a teen in the UK.

“I started working on them when I was an apprentice and first drove an E-type when I was 19,” he said.

“I thought to myself I’d like one of these one day – it took quite a while but now I do.” Mrs Maitland said the Jaguar Car Club of WA met monthly at its Osborne Park headquarters and hosted a runs throughout the year.

“It’s a great family club with about 400 members, male and female,” she said.

The 50th anniversary display day is at Sir James Mitchell Park on October 30. Entry is free.
