WORDS FROM THE
PRESIDENT
EDITOR’S NOTES
Malcolm Baster
Graham Walker
Judging by the unkempt appearance of our
lawn, Spring has at last sprung. All across the Island,
lawnmower blades are being sharpened, gardening stuff
bought, weeds sprayed, and Jaguars being polished.
I was pleased to hear of the good turn-out for
Peter and Judy’s Prowl, and I hope “good turn-out” is a
phrase that will apply to all our club events this year. We
have been forced to miss a few events recently due to
Lucille’s medical woes, but we hope to re-appear soon. In
the meantime, thanks to Wayne Watkins, Alan Heartfield,
Marke Simmons and Dorothy Moleski for sending event
pictures and write-ups for the Growler.
And thanks to Lois Smith, Peter and Judy
Jeffrey, Wayne Watkins, Marke Simmons and Dorothy
Moleski for their other contributions.
For some years it has been observed that clubs in
Texas and states elsewhere seem to have an astounding
number of cars in championship and driven division scoring 100s and 10s, clubs with multiple perfect scores. Long
before now, this seemed to require an explanation and at
last JCNA has established a Concours Committee to
work in parallel with JCRC to assess whether this is just
the product of fanatical zeal coupled with deep pockets,
or carelessness, incompetent judging or other factors leading to unfairness. While the first can be expected, the others obviously discourage competition.
Some issues may be resolved by training judges better
and by having them apply more uniform and critical
standards perhaps subject to the oversight of the director
of each region. In my view the committee will have its
work cut out.
There are complex practical and social issues that I
fear can never be resolved to the satisfaction of all. Tom
Doyle, a past president of the Vancouver club, Canadian
XK Jaguar Register, is serving as a member of that Committee. Some of us know him. He’s a retired engineer who
has rebuilt two Jaguars from the ground up and done superb work so I’m sure his appointment is an affirmative
step.
But in all of this, I wonder whether we have lost sight
of the underlying purpose of a concours - to inspire members to maintain and present their cars in the highest degree of perfection aided by knowledgeable, informed criticism from competent judges. I know that imbues much of
the philosophy on the subject by our current but now retiring Chief Judge, Gregory Andrachuk. So in my view, abhorrent as it may seem, the only goal when judging is to
detect and note every defect and then to determine subjectively the number of points to be deducted for each
within the allowed range. That has to be done without fear
or favour. The only purpose of judging is negative. The
intention is positive: to assist the owner to bring the car
closer to perfection.
Viewed thus, are awards simply the carrot, an acceptance of that element in human nature to come out on
top? Do we do better if we compete? I suspect so. In any
event, not only does the JCNA Concours Committee have
a lot of work to do, so do we.
On a different subject, Coventry West has cancelled
its ad with The Island Growler. While the reason given
purports to be a general cutting back, I suspect it deemed
it wasn’t getting its money’s worth from us. We are in no
position to prove otherwise. I can’t emphasize enough
that members should always be careful to identify themselves to our advertisers when they make a purchase.
Impractical and cumbersome as it seems, I wonder
whether we could have members send in or deposit with
us at each meeting copies of any invoice showing a purchase from our advertisers. That might conceivably enable us to prove the benefit of advertising in our publication. Please think about it. Any ideas you have would be
appreciated.

COVER ART by Graham Turner
The D-Type Jaguar burst onto the motorsport scene
60 years ago, in 1954. The car was of revolutionary design, being of monocoque construction derived from the
aviation industry. Aeronautical aerodynamics were also
applied to the design by Malcolm Sayers from the Bristol
Aeroplane Company.
The D-Type #14 driven by Duncan Hamilton and Tony
Rolt finished second to a Ferrari 375 in the 1954 24 hours
of Le Mans, despite losing considerable time in the pits
because of fuel starvation problems. Superior aerodynamics permitted the Jaguar to reach almost 173 MPH on
the Mulsanne straight, compared to 160 MPH by the
more powerful Ferrari.
The cover picture by Graham Turner shows #14 in
pursuit of the Ferrari near the end of the rain-soaked
race.

mother and sister spent seven months in the UK, where a
friend took him to the Earl’s Court Motor Show. As it happened, it was the year Jaguar introduced the E-Type. “It
was love at first sight,” Alan remembers. And he was
hooked. In 1999, he purchased his first Jaguar - an XJS
TWR - on EBay and has it to this day. It wasn’t suitable for
Winnipeg in winter, so he also picked up an XJ40 which he
called his “winter beater.” Today in Victoria he drives an
XJ8. Some years ago, Alan did finally acquire the E-Type of
his dreams, which he says was a “basket case.” He has
documented his restoration of the E-Type in an online diary. Interested members can access it at:
http://heartfield.net/cars/e_story/index.html
Caught up with Alan on his
return from three months in
Manitoba during the coldest
winter in a century (shudder).
However, it wasn’t quite the
shock it could have been, as
Alan lived in Winnipeg for 30some years so is a little more
hardened to a prairie winter
Born in London, England, Alan was six when his family
came to Canada. Then his father joined the Air Force, and
the family moved around for the next 10 years until they
settled in North Bay, ON, where Alan completed his high
school. He went on to study electrical engineering at the
University of Waterloo, and began his career with American
Motors in Toronto before slowly working his way west to
Winnipeg. In 2007, he began his own business - consulting
in industrial power and control systems and hydro-electrical
utilities - which continues to take him for weeks at a time to
places like Manitoba in winter! Alan is one of only a few
engineers registered in every province from Ontario to BC!
When Alan moved to Victoria in 2010, the E-Type had to go
and it was replaced by two motorcycles. One of his current
interests is taking cycle trips and he is a member of both
the Vancouver Island Bikers and the Yamaha VStar 1100
club. Another interest is photography and Alan is on the
executive of the Victoria Camera Club. JCCV members are
accustomed to seeing Alan with his camera at many
events. A divorcee, Alan has a son and two daughters, plus
three grandchildren. “I’m quite happy to go back to Winnipeg, even in winter,” he says, as it gives him time with his
two granddaughters. He sees his grandson on his trips
back to Ontario.
While his father was stationed in Goose Bay, Alan, his

When Barry and Jennifer retired to Victoria, he was looking for a project. “I’ve always enjoyed tinkering with cars,”
he says. While most members are Jaguar owners who,
sooner or later, find their way to the club, Barry started by
researching local car clubs. Deciding JCCV was the right
one dictated his decision to buy and restore a 1952
XK120. They also now have a 1994 XJ40 which has become the daily driver. Spending two years restoring a car
can hardly be daunting to a man who has previously built
his own airplane – and Barry has done that too! But we’ll
get to the flying.
Originally from Sherbrooke, PQ, Barry first met Jennifer
while he was taking his BA in Business at Bishop’s University and they married a few years later in Montreal. With
an MBA from what is now Concordia, Barry then fulfilled
his ROTC obligations with a stint in the military. The
McCallans decided to leave Quebec in 1971 after the
“October Crisis” and settled in Toronto, where Barry spent
several years in advertising and marketing with Proctor
and Gamble and later with a packaged goods company
handling such national brands as Vaseline.
In 1979, Barry struck out on his own when they bought a
small furniture manufacturing company, which eventually
developed into the Gendron line of baby goods and made
them a buyout target. By 1992, after some years as a
Manufacturer’s Agent, Barry and Jennifer were looking to
get out of Toronto. The opportunity came with Beaver
Lumber, where they became store owners in Halifax and
Barry also became District Manager.
two-store operation. “We
loved the Yukon,” Barry
says. “It’s so expansive
and gives you such a
sense of personal freedom.
The people are great and
the outdoor activities are
fantastic.” Barry and Jennifer still have a house
there as well as keeping a
plane in both Whitehorse
and Victoria. It was in the
Yukon that Barry took up
flying as a means of quick
and easy access to their
business operations which
had expanded as far afield
as Calgary, Trail and the Island. In fact, it was the amount
of time they spent overseeing their Island businesses that
convinced them to relocate once again, this time to Victoria,
where they custom-built their “final” home in Ardmore.
When he’s not keeping busy with his cars and club business, Barry and Jennifer spend time on their 52-foot power
boat, escape to sunny Scottsdale, or visit their son in Alberta or daughter and two grandchildren in Ottawa. Barry has
also recently taken up watercolour painting. “I’m terribly
unaccomplished, “ he laughs, “but I really enjoy it.”
Once again, looking for new opportunities, they relocated
to Whitehorse with the same company and took over a

JCCV Sunday Prowl
April 6, 2014
Story by Peter and Judy Jeffrey
Photos by Wayne Watkins and Alan Heartfield
On Sunday April 4th thirty Jaguars and their owners gathered at Tillicum Mall, and after coffee and chat in the
spring sunshine, everyone set off on their way up the
Saanich Peninsula. The route took them on a leisurely
tour along West Saanich Road, with an interesting detour
using some less-known roads.
Everyone found their way successfully to the Roost, a
farm centre owned by the Crawford family, and it was
quite a sight to see all the Jaguars parked along the farm
road. Hamish Crawford was waiting to introduce us to his
classic cars: his interesting collection consisted of two
Jaguars (E-type and XKE), two MG TCs, two Model A
Fords, a Mini and a Land Rover – something for everyone! Hamish invited everyone to wander round the
Roost, and everyone enjoyed seeing the farm with its winery, bakery, bistro – and chickens, of course.
Julie and Anne explain why The Roost is called The Roost
Our home is near the Roost, so we thought it would be
fun to have lunch here. There was a wonderful turnout
and we were thankful for good weather as almost sixty
people chatted and socialized inside and spilled out onto
the deck and into the garden. After lunch, everyone was
encouraged to take part in the “Crawford Car Collection
quiz”, with Terry Sturgeon and Jeremy Why sharing 1st
place.
Thank you to Hamish Crawford for a relaxed, interesting
tour, and to everyone who took part in the April Prowl and
made it such a friendly outing.
We hope there is a drip tray!

The Old English Car Club's Restoration Fair and Swap
Meet, held in conjunction with the Saanich Historical Artifacts Society, was well attended, with hundreds
of enthusiasts through the gate. The weather was perfect
and local British Car Clubs were well represented, including the Jaguar Car Club of Victoria. Twenty British car
owners signed up for the British Cars For Sale section.
The choices included an Alvis, TVR, Lotus 7, Vanguard,
Mini, MGF, MG Magnette, Morgan, TR8, 2 MGB roadsters, MGB GT, Austin Healey, Triumph Herald project
car, Jaguar E-Type Coupe and three Jaguar XJS models.
A total of five cars sold with discussions ongoing on three
more. The swap meet vendors did a brisk business with
lots of parts and accessories being sold. Our Jaguar Car
Club of Victoria was well represented with Merritt
Chisholm having arranged for more than a dozen Jaguars
on display. To sum it up - a good time was had by all.

The next meeting of the
JAGUAR CAR CLUB OF VICTORIA
is on Tuesday, April 22, 2014
at 7:30 pm
Members are requested to arrive at the
SERVICE department at the rear lower level at

at the Chief & Petty Officers’ Mess CFB
Esquimalt, 1575 Lyall Street, Victoria
Our Speaker:
A light lunch will be provided by Jaguar Victoria.
An indication of how many people will attend is
required for catering.
Eleanor Smith is a Realtor with MacDonald
Realty and has been a Jaguar Car Club of
Victoria member since 2005.
She will speak about buying and selling real
estate in this area and the options we have
in Greater Victoria.
She will certainly address the issue of Jaguar enthusiasts having adequate space in the
'motor house' portion of the home, be it a detached home, townhome or condominium
building. Being a club member Eleanor is
very familiar with that requirement. She has
a 25 year interior design background and
will touch on the latest trends for today's
homeowners - (including choices like storage cabinets for the garage I am sure).

PARKSVILLE
Several streaks of Dove crawled toward the horizon on
Friday morning, April 11, revealing an empty expanse
of soft azure. We departed Julie B’s home in Dean Park
at 8:39 - destination Sussex Automotive, Parksville.
Merritt and Benni’s immaculate 1965 S type had been
at Alan Petrie’s for the annual service, and was eagerly
awaiting the Friday afternoon southbound blast to the
coast. A quick stop for morsel intake at Tigh-Na-Mara in
Parksville, and we were on the road again. It was our
first day-trip of the cruising season, and the two classic
Jaguars performed superbly.

here is probably not much point in JCCV members
applying for jobs at Bletchley Park. It seems that no one
was able to decipher the coded message in last month’s
Growler.
ZQWKQH - JXU UNUCFBQH EV WHQSU IFQSU FQSU
The lead-in paragraph mentioned the message was of
interest to Jaguar owners. So perhaps “Jaguar” is a coded word here. Let’s see. Jaguar. Six letters, and the second and second last are the same, namely A’s.
Hmm. There is a six letter word here, the first word in
fact. And the second and second last letters are the
same! We will assume the first word is “Jaguar.”
So we write down our “clear” alphabet. (Blue ink.)
Under it we write down our “code” alphabet. (Red ink,)
lining up the “Q’s in the first word of the message with the
“A”s of the clear alphabet:
