Carl: some notes on the C type you mentioned. Terry Larson must have had
a hell of a job trying to verify the tangled histories of these few cars!

Fri, 2 Jan 1998 John, A fellow in our club just purchased XKC034. I will
get his name and details shortly.
See Jaguar Journal, May/Jun 01, page 12: big article on this car. Nicely
restored, owner George Missetzis, USA. Jun 2000: came in from England
having been restored there by John Wilkinson, and sent to Houston Texas.
Bought by George c 1998 from a well known and highly successful racer in
England who had owned and raced the car since the 1980s. 1984 - article in
Classic and Sports Car magazine by Mike McCarthy, interviewed then owner
John Harper. Various race crashes etc recorded in that article. Sold
originally to Hoffmans, New York in 1953 and said to have had an
undistinguished racing career until reduced to an incomplete pile of parts
(about half a car, said Harper) when purchased by Harper in the early
1970s. He did not get the chassis or ID plate at that time. Later, Harper
became involved in the restoration of XKC 015 and found (how, is not
explained) that 015 had been repaired with parts from 034. 015 was
acquired by Harper and the parts were enough to restore 034. He then went
on to race it successfully for a number of years. Regd MHP494 (UK).From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Cleo Bay Jr.) Subject: XKC034 and other Topics Date:
