OK, I have to settle for 2nd place this year, but hey… I can’t win ALL the time. 😉

Here is the text from the notification I just received:

Results of the SNG Barratt Jaguar Photographic Competition 2007
The SNG Barratt Jaguar photographic competition was a great success for the second year running, many thanks to everyone that took the time to enter. We’ve all had great fun sifting through the entries. Below are the names of the lucky winners. If you weren’t successful this time, then there’s always next year!!!
Ist prize of £250 worth of SNG Barratt Vouchers goes to Tom Nelson from London, in second place was Chuck Goolsbee, Washington, USA who receives $275 and the third prize of £75 goes to Richard Colton from Stanwick, UK. Below are the winning entries….

My winning photograph this year is a shot of Philipe Reyns’ XKSS I snapped as we drove along the east shore of Swan Lake in NW Montana during this year’s Going To The Sun Rally. It was certainly the ride of my life and worthy of a prize. The prize however will be lavished upon the 65E, sorry Philippe!

Posting this (and Paul Wigton’s comment on my last post) also reminds me that I really need to get back into the “Car Photo of the Day” habit again, since I have so many good ones.

Stay tuned for more of that.


  1. Thanks for the update..if DF’s service is as good as yours..well, you got my vote!!
    Congrats on the second place prize! Honestly, it would have been a tuffie for me to choose, ‘cuz all the pix were astonishing! Hope when I get some of Tweetles up on Loveland Pass, SNG might bestow some swag on it!
    Wotcha gonna git fer ’65E’ this year?

  2. It needs:

    New mufflers
    a new tach generator
    a new OP sender
    a replacement exhaust stud nut (the brass ones)
    maybe a new water temp sender too

    I still need to build that radio console replacement cubby-hole thing

  4. Oddly enough Paul, I also have a photo that is very close to the first place winner. I use it as one of my desktop backgrounds on my computer:
