owned by

Laurie and Sue Pearce. Middlemount.

Laurie and Sue managed to visit the Browns Plain Plant  while in the U.K in 1993. (The plant was only three weeks into production after Its major overhaul/refit)

    After  returning, Laurie decided he wold  like to take on a simple restoration

Project.  The Photo above  shows the Jaguar as it turned up.  Simple was not the most apt word

Laurie had originally been looking for a 3.8 Litre mark11 but settled for "STANLEY" 3.8 's'

(Stanley S Type)

The car was bought from

Brisbane; But it had gone to Brisbane from Gladstone, and before that Biloela - So it would seem it's destined to stay in

Central Queensland.

'Wiring Harness'

(Looks simple)

    A bit over three years saw it reshape to the general stage it's at presently and  Laurie is "Still mucking about with a coupla fiddly things"  It is basically complete.

   There has been a number of little glitches along the way and Laurie says "being in the Jag Club, with expert advice to call on, is a must" his undying Gratitude goes to Max Parnell of the Capricorn Register for his invaluable help and support.  Also to never  forget to have the family on-side

(Most importantly  " She who must be obeyed")  Sue, and Laurie's three sons who all put up with a lot and helped accomplish much.
