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.

John Shuck, Beijing, 15 Oct 1996:

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".
