About the Seattle Jaguar Club:

The Jaguar Drivers and Restorers Club of Northwest America (with new dba Seattle Jaguar Club) welcomes enthusiasts of new and old Jaguar automobiles

Jaguar ownership is not necessary, just a passion for these beautiful cars. There are several events that appeal to a range of enthusiasts including drives, shows, technical sessions.


The club is fun and friendly

Members include both young families and mature members who remember when some of the older cars were new on the road. Cars in the club range from new Jaguar models like the new F-Types and its new SUV the F-Pace to classics such as E-Types from the 1960's and XK models from the 1940's and 1950's.  


Our History

The predecessor to the Seattle Jaguar Club was the Jaguar Drivers Club started in 1958.  There was another club called XK Jaguar Restoration Club that was formed in 1971.  Many members belonged to both clubs. They decided to merge, and they combined the two organizations in 1989.  That became our current club, the Jaguar Drivers and Restorers Club/Northwest America (JDRC/NWA).  Our club was commonly known as the Seattle Jaguar Club, and this officially became our DBA in 2020.
