1951 Jaguar C-Type Racer -- August 28, 2014

We visited the Blackhawk Museum in June, 2013 to drool over their collection of classic autos.  This 1951 Jaguar C-Type Racer is number 14 of 53 built.  C-Types won Le Mans in 1951 and 1953. 

When I see Jaguars, I always think of San Francisco columnist Herb Caen, who had a love-hate relationship with the marque.  I believe he wrote "Owning a Jaguar is like having a beautiful mistress with a social disease."  I think newer Jaguars don't leak oil.
