Jerry Litz, Les Connolly and Rick Vanek at the Jaguar Club of Ohio’s Concours D’ Elegance on August 7, 2010 at Ursuline College.

What a day for our concour! We all know how hot it has been this summer but for us good guys a beautiful 80 deg. and a slight breeze. Our Jags ranged from the two 2011's , an XJ and an XF from Jaguar Cleveland, our main sponsor, to two 1950 Jaguars, a Mark V sedan and a drop head. These cars are not nearly as technically advance or as reliable as the new models but who wouldn't love to own and drive them. GEORGOUS!. The Providence House lemonade stand, Irene Chudzik set it up and ran it, was graced by a Jaguar Mark VIII which our chief judge Paul Cusato drove in for the event. I think that brought in more than a few lemonade customers. Every once in a while I looked back at the new Jags and there were always a few people admiring them. Remember when you could always recognize a car from a distance? Jaguar is one of the few you can still recognize easily. We were fortunate to have an adequate number of judges this year and two delightful teenagers to be score runners, which brings me to our staff that man the scoring tent. What a job, they have computerized everything making it so much easier to record and put cars in their proper classes and their final places in the results. Our trusted finance chairman, Randy Brown, oversaw the recording of fees. So many good people to thank, but I'm sure you all appreciate them. So many beautiful Jags and so little time to see them all, I would love to have the time to take portrait pictures of them. I am in my 19th year as a JCO member and I never tire of seeing old friends and always meeting new, and of course enjoying their Jaguar works of art.

Thank you to Dan Shinkle, Zofia Chudzik (my mom) and a new member to the JCO, Anthony Cambert, for taking care of the Lemonade Stand at Ursuline. Love ya! Irene

In 2010 the Glenmoor Gathering will recognize not one automobile, but a large group of them -“The Historic Motorcars of Cleveland”- automobiles built in Cleveland, Ohio, that once rivaled Detroit as a center for automobile manufacturing; many examples will be on display in September. Among the Cleveland-built automobiles on display will be famous makes such as Peerless,White,Winton and Stearns-Knight as well as memorable makes such as Templar, Chandler and Jordan. Two of the best-known and most popular electric automobiles were built in Cleveland-Rauch & Lang and Baker - as well as a steam car, the White. A special group of a legendary American Classic - the mighty Duesenberg - will serve as a 2010 highlight; a variety of body styles will be displayed. For those with a passion for horsepower and European design the 2010 Gathering will recognize the talents of Italian designer Giotto Bizzarrini by displaying examples of some of his finest automobile designs. Bizzarrini's 50+ year career included not only design and production of the Bizzarrini sports car but design work on the Iso Rivolta, Iso Grifo and Ferrari 250 GTO. The 2010 Gathering will also feature Italian “Super-Bikes,” such as those built by Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, Ducati, Moto-Guzzi, and MV-Agusta from the 1960's to present. And, there'll be the usual great American and European antique and classic automobiles - plus a few surprises - that attendees have come to expect at the annual Gathering. The Grande Salon Antique and Classic Car Auction - the first-ever held at the Gathering - will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2010. It will be conducted by Classic Motorcar Auctions of Canton, Ohio, headed by long-time collector Bob Lichty. Serving as honorary chairman of the 2010 Gathering will be Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market, the leading magazine chronicling collector car marketplace values. The 2010 poster artwork will feature a unique American Classics: the one-of-a-kind 1932 Peerless Sixteen sedan prototype designed and built by Murphy Coachworks, from the collections of the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum. The 2010 poster artist is Ken Dallison of Mississaugua, Ontario. During his 50-year career, he has created elegant images for many blue chip clients. A founder of the Automotive Fine Arts Society, he began his professional career in London. During the 2010 concours automotive art by a variety of artists will be displayed and on sale and several automotive authors will be signing their books. The 2010 weekend activities will include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, a restoration seminar by the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum ( featuring a rare 1913 Austro-Daimler), a car collecting discussion led by Keith Martin of Sports Car Market, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges' program and other family activities. A new activity for the ladies will be “A Day of Classic Beauty and Pampering” at the Spa at Glenmoor on Saturday. Approximately 6,000 people attended the 2009 event, which included invitation-only vehicles from throughout the United States-from as far away as California and Florida.

Proceeds from this year's Gathering are designated for Mercy Medical Center's Emergency Department Expansion and Renovation project.

75 Years of Jaguar – Performance & Beauty

By Robert Barbero & Rick Vanek, Cleveland, Ohio July 2010

Jaguar was founded in 1922 by Sir Williams Lyon and William Walmsley, known as the Swallow Sidecar Company. They fabricated motorcycle sidecars and fitted them to used motorcycles. Lyons was the son of an Irish musician who settle in Blackpool, England. His mother was the daughter of a wealthy mill owner who disowned her because of the marriage. Lyons would be 109 year old if alive today. He tried his hand at selling automobiles, but wound up languishing in his father's music shop. This is where Lyons and Walmsley came together to form their company. The company soon began to produce the Swallow bodied cars in Coventry in 1931, a distinct marque, called the SS. Then in 1935, not wanting to be associated with the German SS, they re-badged as Jaguar. The Jaguar name was an ideal choice as it represented the feline grace and elegance, power and agility that set he cars apart. Sir Williams once said that has stood the test of time. The new brand name captured the essence of all of the cars created from that point forward. Known at the time for producing beautifully styled cars and priced at a fraction of the well know marques such as Bentley, Jaguar was off and running. The SS 100 was the forerunner to the XK120, XK140 and XK150s that would follow after World War II. The SS100 was the first Jaguar guaranteed to perform at 100 mph. Jaguar would continue the top speed to designate their models for the XK120, XK140 and XK150 – all milestone models, but not as well known to the general motoring public as the XKE. It was somewhere around this time frame that Jaguar began using the slogan of “Grace, Pace and Space” in their advertising materials. The E-Type, with its racing heritage of C-Types and D-Types, would go on to win many of motorcar racings' greatest accolades. To this day, the E-Type still remains the most recognizable Jaguar, whether they are 6 cylinders, commonly mistaken for V-12's or the actual Series III V-12's. The ear Series I covered headlight cars, are the most coveted, especially in roadster form. Some will still argue that the E-Type coupe was the purest design form ever produced. It was at one time the only automobile on permanent display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Jaguar didn't just produce sports cars however. Early on, they began building beautiful saloons, all of which had the heritage of Jaguar's sporting designs and performance at very affordable prices. Jaguar would follow later with the Mark IX, Mark 1 and Mark 2, all of which saw their share of track time. These sedans would lead to the current sedans still being sold today, just as the XK & XKEs lead to the XJS which became the current SK8 and now know simple as the XK or XKR. Jaguar, although it survives today, has had a checkered past of ownership and management challenges. It is almost a blueprint for the English motor manufacturer. Founded by a passionate enthusiast, absorbed by a misguided conglomerate, mismanaged, nationalized, mismanaged again, privatized, then sold to Ford Motor Company, wooed by its history. Now its future is in the hands of an Indian auto manufacturing giant, Ratan Tata; once again, England being controlled by the provincial territories. They seem to be showing signs of continued success with the introduction of the current XF and the most recently introduced and seductive XJ flagship. Hopefully it does survive because there are a lot of enthusiasts out there who would love to see the rumored E-Type replacement produced. A bit of local history about the Jaguar Club of Ohio – it was formed in 1972 by three local Jaguar enthusiasts, Ron Smith, Dave Pool and Phil Boyd. The club was founded originally to provide technical information to Jaguar owners, sponsoring events for driving and displaying th ecars and providing social activities for club members. It was officially recognized by Jaguar Club of North America (JCNA) December 9, 1973. From its small beginning, the club maintains a current membership of 140+ members. On August 7th, 2010, JCO presented its 38th continuous Concours d'Elegance, proudly in conjunction with the 24th continuous British Car Day. This event was presented by Northeastern Ohio British Car Council and sponsored by Jaguar Cleveland.

AKRON, Ohio - It is the moment everyone in Northeast Ohio has been waiting for, but not necessarily the news they were hoping for: LeBron is leaving Northeast Ohio. The biggest surprise may be his new home town. Chicago and New York were likely never considered. LeBron's new home will be Melbourne, Florida. LeBron, the jaguar that was born at the Akron Zoo in 2009, left for the Brevard Zoo in mid-June. The Zoo hosted a LeBron Appreciation Day on June 5, 2010. LeBron was the only male in a litter of three born at the Akron Zoo on March 3, 2009. (Mike Meyer featured a picture of the newborn cubs on the March/April 2009 JAGMAG). Through a public contest the name LeBron was chosen in honor of Akron native and NBA superstar LeBron James. The move is sanctioned by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP). The mission of the SSP is to help ensure the survival of selected wildlife species. Through scientifically-controlled managed breeding programs, SSP's are a proactive approach to preventing extinction. SSP's were formed back in 1981 to help ensure the survival of endangered species. SSP's are managed by the AZA, of which the Akron Zoo is an accredited member. LeBron will be paired with a female at the Brevard Zoo, Masaya, in hopes of breeding and rearing a successful litter of cubs. Jaguars are listed as an endangered species by the US Fish & Wildlife Service.There is currently less than 100 jaguars in the United States at AZA accredited facilities. The two females born in the litter with LeBron, Bella and Nakita (pictured below), will be at the zoo for the foreseeable future.The zoo expects to have a decision by the SSP on where they will be heading and when before the end of the summer. Currently the plan is for the parents of the cubs, Naom and Chack, to reside at the Akron Zoo. This was Naom and Chack's second litter. In 2005 three jaguar cubs were also born at the Akron Zoo and have since moved onto other accredited zoos in the U.S.

After having a few days of testing time, the first practice session on Friday, August 6th, went well as the tema continued to find what it would take for this car to be consistent around the 2.258-mile road course o f Mid-Ohio. By the afternoon, the car had gained over two seconds from its best time posted in the am., and only 2.3 seconds off the GT leaders pace. Marc Goossens was the qualifying driver, and posted the best time of the weekend with a time of 1:22.125 (98.981 mph) which put him 12th on the GT grid. Paul Gentilozzi took the green flag and had a good first stint. On lap 16, he recorded a best race lap time in the XKR GT of 1:24.382. Gentilozzi remained in the car for the first 49 minutes of the race, before taking advantage of a caution period to come into the pits for service and a driver change. Goossens then took over and stayed in the seat for the remainder of the 2 hour and 45 minute race. After running for 1 hour and 48 minutes, Goossens headed into the pits for tires and fuel. What should have been the last drive through in the pits of the race unfortunately was not. About 30 minutes later, the Belgian was issued a stop and go penalty for avoidable contact with one of the GTC class cars. Despite disagreeing with the call, the team served the 60-second penalty. No damage was done, and that didn't hurt the team position wise, so Goossens carried on to take the checkered flag a short time later. On the final lap of th e race, he gave it his all one last time and recorded the XKR's fastest race lap time of 1:24.272. A solid, consistent run by both drivers resulted in a ninth-place finish for th Jaguar RSR. Goossens earns two more championship points, while Gentilozzi earns his first ALMS points. Jaguar and Yokohama also benefited earning points to their name in the respective manufacturer standings. View COOL RACING Pictures at the Jaguar Website


is made of?

Do you know the main ingredient?

I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup. I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason). I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do.... probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm the paint job on the truck. I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew? 'Water Displacement #40'. The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a 'water displacement' compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Convair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts. Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you. When you read the 'shower door' part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stove top. It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

WD-40 Uses:

1. Protects silver from tarnishing; 2. Removes road tar and grime from cars; 3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings; 4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery; 5. Keeps flies off cows. (I love this one!); 6. Restores and cleans chalkboards; 7. Removes lipstick stains; 8. Loosens stubborn zippers; 9. Untangles jewelry chains; 10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks; 11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill; 12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing; 13. Removes tomato stains from clothing; 14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots; 15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors; 16. Keeps scissors working smoothly; 17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes; 18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks; 19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40! 20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide; 21. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers; 22. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises; 23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open; 24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close; 25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers; 26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles; 27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans; 28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling; 29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly; 30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools; 31. Removes splattered grease on stove; 32 Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging; 33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs; 34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell); 35. Removes all traces of duct tape; 36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain; 37. Florida’s favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'; 38. The favorite use in the state of New York, WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements; 39. WD-40 attracts fish; Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states; 40. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch; 41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag; 42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone! 43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
