Your Series 1 E-Type Judging Guide is good, but if we want well educated
judges, they need photos to go with your text. We are asking judges to LOOK
at something to judge whether or not it is correct, such as your reference
to 4 different radio finishing panels. Most people don’t know that there is
more than one style or what to look for if they do.
With your permission, I am willing to take your guide and add photos to it.
There are enough E-Types out there, each of which may have just one
component that is correct and that they could send me a photo of to make the
Series 1 E-Type Judging Guide more visually helpful for judging.
I no longer have editing access to the JCNA site, but I can post the guide
on my web site and add information and photos as they become available.

Subject: Re: [concours] Judging question
I thought that your name seemed familiar, probably as I seem to remember
that we traded messages when you were starting on your quest to produce a
XK120 judging guide. Like you I wish Steve well on his quest but I’m afraid
that the facts of life are that the people that researched these cars years
are and built Concours winners themselves are pretty much gone, pessimistic,
but I’m afraid true.
PS I just remembered that Bassett Jaguar is an old time Jaguar repair shop
on the east coast, I wonder if any one has ever contacted him about helping
on a guide.

Robert I too will hope the same… HOWEVER based on results … there
aren’t enough of them! After over twelve years of careful research.
and numerous requests, including eventually begging , grovelling and
pleading for others to assist me in the endeavour… I came to the
reluctant conclusion that there just wasn’t the support to see the 120
judging guide completed. I eventually threw in the towel a couple of
years ago. Steve Kennedy has taken up the mantle… and from what I
understand ( correct me if I am wrong Steve) he is now facing exactly
the same problem. Where as it is in everyones best interest to have a
reliable resource of model specific guides, the aggregate will to see
these completed just isn’t happening. So we will continue to see
‘‘pretty faces’’ win over original cars because that is by default
what is happening. Each one of us has something valuable to
contribute… get with it guys!
The original message included these comments:
Who would train these Paid Judges and what training material would
they be using? And who would raise the money to pay them. Entry fees
would have to be $300 to $500 per car.
