The Jaguar Car Club of Victoria is about you. It’s about connecting people of all backgrounds with varying interests in the marque, so that you and your family can enjoy and fully realise the numerous benefits of being a member of the JCCV. The club seeks to provide, through its various activities, a happy and fulfilling environment for you...
Although admiration for the Jaguar marque is an all important aspect of the JCCV, the club's emphasis is not just on the cars. Our members are what makes the club and their enjoyment and welfare are also of primary importance. Accordingly, we plan activities throughout the year so that members, their partners, children and grandchildren can participate and enjoy a wide variety of activities and social functions through out the year. Members and their families are encouraged to attend the monthly general meetings at our club rooms, which provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere...
The Club Permit Scheme (CPS) allows members of the JCCV to have limited use of historic vehicles on the road network. Vehicles must be at least 25 years old to participate in the scheme. You MUST be a member of the JCCV for a minimum of 30 days before being eligible to apply for a Club Permit under the Club's CPS for a Jaguar and 12-months for a non-Jaguar.
The focal point of the club is of course the Jaguar cars that we greatly admire and to this end, one thing our members love is to join other enthusiasts and show off their pride and joy. The Jaguar Car Club of Victoria (JCCV) participates and supports various interclub displays, charities and events each year, the highlight of which is our annual Concours & Display Day held in November.
For those interested in driving their Jaguars in a somewhat more spirited manner, the JCCV offers members the opportunity to participate in a variety of events in a controlled and safe environment on one of the many race circuits around Victoria including; Winton, Philip Island, Sandown, etc. Through the club's affiliation with the Marque Sports Car Association (MSCA), the JCCV offers...
The year was 1962 Dawn Fraser broke the minute barrier for 100m freestyle, NASA's Mariner 2 becomes the first spacecraft to fly by Venus, Lawrence of Arabia was voted the movie of the year and a dozen Jaguar owners got together and founded what is now the oldest Jaguar Club in Australia.
Our meeting place is a credit to the vision of early members who formed an alliance with the Austin Healey Club and purchased our own clubrooms. They are discreetly located in Springvale and offer members a comfortable club ambience and relaxed atmosphere befitting these fine British marques and their owners. The club rooms offer a large meeting room equipped with full audio visual facilities, lounge room, conference room, library, merchandise shop, kitchen and licensed bar. The club rooms have easy access for wheelchairs and provide comfortable seating and conveniences to make anyone's visit a pleasurable experience.
This is my last President’s report. I have been honoured to be your president for the last two years and I leave the position knowing the club will be in good hands led by President-elect Lyn Belcher. The club is prospering, new members are continuing to join, we have lots of activities and we are financially sound. It is pleasing to know that our office building owned jointly with the Austin Healey club is now leased.
The club has done well mainly due to all the members who take an active role in organising events and happenings such as track meetings, club runs, producing Cat-A-Log, packing Cat-A-Log, register secretaries, the library, the club merchandise, administering the Club Plates scheme, managing our finances,

How would you like to have these two daily drivers to use regularly? Well JCCV Geelong register secretary Steve Temple is one member many might envy. Steve’s award-winning XF takes him to work at the Geelong railyards where he then swaps turbo diesels for the City of Warrnambool locomotive.
Steve’s immaculate XF took out the Brighton Jaguar trophy for the overall Concours d’Etat winner at our recent Concours and Display Day. He has only had the car for a few months after deciding to switch from another late model Jag to the XF. Steve is delighted with the XF as it “drives like a real Jaguar”, and has great road-handling ability and torque. He spent a solid two weeks before the Concours preparing the XF which paid off in a strong field of entrants.Read More
The Jaguar and Daimler XJ Coupes are amongst the world’s most beautiful cars. It is also Jaguar’s rarest production car with fewer than 10,500 built between 1975 and 1977.
These cars are the two door version of the XJ6 four door saloon. When Sir William Lyons began styling exercises for the new XJ models in the mid 1960’s, it was obvious that he had notions of a two door coupe in mind for eventual production. Many of these early styling mock-ups were based on the coupe theme in various shapes, forms and sizes, and the XJC was the last Jaguar car to be designed and built by Sir William Lyons.Read More
