Every few years XKs Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, California has an open house and car show in April. This year (2011) the event is Saturday and Sunday, April 9th and 10th. The company is open on the Saturday and on the Sunday there will be a car show and a JCNA judged concours. Not only is XKs Unlimited a big parts supplier for Jags of all types – but they also have complete repair and restoration facilities. Aside from seeing great Jags and meetings lots of good people, the XKs open house presents an opportunity to see some great cars under restoration and speak to some extremely knowledgeable specialists. It is a real treat for any Jaguar fan. One of the huge benefits of attending the open house is the chance to purchase parts at a huge discount – and save on shipping by picking them up. Of course, San Luis Obispo and the central Coast region of California are a great place to visit any time. I have ordered a ton of parts to try and complete my restoration project. Alas – this means we will be going to the open house in a SUV rather than a sports car. Information on the 2011 open house and car show are available here – http://www.xks.com/open-house. Here are a few pictures from the 2009 car show and open house to entice you.
