Concours Events and XKs
Terry K. Wagner, 22 Apr 1996:
I own a 1960 XK150 Drophead Vin
S838756DN, Engine number VA1650-9, Body P8288, Gearbox JLS45693JS, Carmen
Red with Black Interior and black hood. Built 14 March 60. This car scored
99.40 at last years JCNA show at Coatsville, Pa. And it never had a ground
up. The judges loved the originality of the car although I felt that the
car would only score a 96 or 97. The seats in the car are still the original
in excellent condition and it upsets me when replacement seats that naturally
look better than mine contribute to a better score.

I wish you luck with your series
one 1 restoration Terry in PA ... but, unless you were given the car and
all the parts to restore it, it ain't gonna happen. I've helped restore
many cars over the years, many went on to win events. The 100 point car
first time out is a dream. Those last few points are the toughest and not
the cheapest ... when I was in the business, many folks would come in and
ask for the perfect restoration ... I would always say ... "pull up
a stool and watch me work. When you think it is perfect enough and you
have spent enough money, that's when I stop!" .... good luck though..

I have found Concours to be a good
way to meet other people with the same interests. I find it sad that people
won't go to a Concours because of the preconceived notion that Concours
consists only of "trailer queens".
