The Larson C & D Type Jaguars

This page will be dedicated to Terry and Darlene Larson's C Type and D Type Jaguars which I had the extreme privilege of road testing for an article that I wrote for "Victory Lane" magazine.
I have that particular issue stored away and I will try to dig it out but the time frame was approximately 1993 if memory serves me correctly! 

Well let's start with the memory...


Yes


Yes!


Oh Yeah!


Oh really...Yeah Baby!!!

Now that I got your attention lets get on with the show!!!


Here is the charming couple and caretakers that made this whole experience possible...Terry and Darlene Larson. We had a wonderful time exercising their C and D Type Jaguars along the roads east of Mesa up along the Salt River and having dinner at Roosevelt Lake. We had a lot of fun and I really got an appreciation for Terry's philosophy that we do not own these wonderful works of mechanical joy, but are just the caretakers until the they find their next home!


This and some of the following photos do no require my commentary so please just enjoy!


Nice mountain reflection in the water!








Appreciating a wonderful experience and absorbing some of the knowledge that Terry Larson was so generous with sharing! His passion for this marque is unsurpassed!

What fun...taking photos back and forth!!!


At a crossroads...which way from here???


What a view...and the mountain, road and landscape is nice too!!!


Getting late, time to head back to the barn and put these fillies away for the night!


Thank you so much Mr. Terry Larson and your wonderful wife Darlene for affording me an experience that I will never forget and so few will ever partake in.
I am humbled and feel even now, some 20 plus years later, excited by being able to drive these two wonderful examples of not only Jaguar, but also Automotive History!
I'm a pretty lucky guy!!!
