NOTE: This contest is now closed and Thomas Inwood is the winner. A new contest will be coming soon!
Here we go! Our new contest for the month of March is for two of pieces of collectible Jaguar merchandise. I received these from Jaguar themselves at the Hilton Head Motoring Festival when Jaguar and Autoweek held a private event featuring Ian Callum and unveiling the F-TYPE. You can see the video of this at the end of this article. The items are a Jaguar pen and notebook set.
The pen is a Cross ballpoint in its original box. The pen has the Jaguar name and emblem on the matte black barrel. Note that the items I am picturing here are my own. Yes, I managed to get two of both from the Jaguar folk, so one set is mine to keep and one is for you to win. Lucky you! Although the color may be a bit off in the pictures, the body of the pen and the cover of the notebook are both deep black.
The notebook, which features the impression of the F-Type on the cover, is of a Moleskine-type, with lined pages, an elastic band to hold it closed, and a pocket in the back. I measure about 5 inches by 8.5 inches and I would guess has about one hundred-fifty to two-hundred pages. Oh, it also has one of those little red ribbon type placeholders. It would make a great car maintenance or restoration journal, a diary, or just a keepsake.
I will tell you honestly, I like the journal, but I love the pen. I am a bit of a pen collector – more than a bit my wife might say – and this really is a quality pen. It has some honest heft to it, and feels solid in your hand. The ink flows smoothly and evenly. I promise, not only will you enjoy using this pen, but it will impress people who borrow and then try to steal it from you.
