DMG Pedal for Parkinson’s Update

You may remember that our sales guys are pedaling 60 miles for the Parkinson’s charity. Its only a couple of weeks away now, and we would love it if you could spare a couple of pounds on our Just Giving Page.

The guys had just finished a long shift yesterday, before tackling a humid 10 mile bike ride. Sorry about the lyrca shorts

Stunning Fire Engine Red Jaguar XKR at DMG

Only time will tell, but the departure in shape from the Jaguar XJ-S to the Jaguar XK8/XKR was probably what the E-type to the XJ-S needed all those years before. The XKR shape is almost 20 years old and yet it still has a lot of love for its modern sporty shape. It’s a testament to how forward thinking Jaguar was at the time and how we rarely see them in nothing short than a well looked after state today.

The XKR and XK8 models are very popular visitors to our trade counter. DVLA statistics show there are 1000’s still currently on the road with many owners looking after them, the number is not likely to decrease any time soon. Our customers have also commented that an early version can still be purchased relatively cheaply making it an exciting purchase for many people.

Rare Triumph Burlington Arrow

We would forgive you for not being familiar with the Triumph Burlington Arrow, after all only 500 were built. You may however spot certain similarities with the Triumph Herald, Triumph Vitesse or GT6 as many parts were used from these cars.

This example is owned by a regular customer of ours who has just completed a full restoration including re-spray. It must be one of the finest examples left so it’s also a pleasure to see it being used daily instead of special occasions.

The majority of parts can be purchased from us as we specialise in Triumph Cars. Many of the engine parts are interchangeable with the aforementioned models. You can view our Triumph Parts lists by clicking here.

Jaguar MK2 Restoration Project

You probably won’t see a more modern version of the Classic Jaguar MK2 around. In the late 1990’s, our customer invested a small fortune into bringing the car into the 21st century with complete mod cons, whilst staying as true as possible to its original interior look and feel.

So, if you sit in the car you would not notice too much of a difference. Maybe your eyes would glance towards the additional dash buttons. These control the electrics windows, the newly installed air conditioning and of course. ..the electric sunroof.

Mechanically this Jaguar MK2 has been rebuilt from the ground upwards. The recent re-spray compliments the car amicably and it certainly surpasses concours condition.

At the David Manners Group, we are possibly the world’s leading parts specialists for the Jaguar MK2. We certainly hold the largest amount of stock for the most fast moving part lines. You can download a free price list by visiting our website here.
