A few years ago I was contacted by a member of the Jensen Car Club who told me he had found kids t-shirts with an old illustration of a Jensen FF on them at Best and Less. I had to get one for Lucas, even though he would not be able to wear it for a number of years. In fact, I am not even sure if he was born at the time. We checked out all the Best and Less stores here and none had them so we had the club member send down one of the ones he had bought. (He had bought all the ones he could find…) Some time after we actually found one in the Glenorchy store, and it was a different size, so we grabbed that and now Lucas has two of them. I want one for myself!
If you didn’t know, Lucas’s middle name is Jensen… 🙂
I finally got around to renewing my membership with the Jensen Car Club of Australia. This is a great club for any Jensen owner to be a part of, with a massive knowledge base and a fantastic bunch of Jensen nerds. It is also a good idea to join or at least make contact with the club if you are looking to find a good Interceptor, Healey or any other Jensen for sale.
The club does not currently have a website, but they do publish an excellent magazine. Here is the cover of an older issue I have.
I also joined the Jensen Owners Club of the UK, who also have an excellent magazine. Not much chance of ever attending any of their events though I am afraid. But they do have a brilliant forum.
Welcome along to my brand new blog Interceptor III, which will follow the fixing up of Jensen Interceptor III 128/4633. To kick things off, here is a video I made back in 2005 when I first fired the car up after a 10 year layup in Dads shed. I bought it home in Jan ’05 and have not done a whole lot to it, but that is about to change, wife permitting of course.
