Author Biography - Nigel Thorley
Brought up on Jaguar ownership, Nigel Thorley got his first model at the age of 17, and to date has owned a total of 67 Jaguars! A founder member of the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, he is one of its directors, and editor of its prestigious Jaguar Enthusiast magazine. Nigel has also written some twenty books on the marque. He regularly gives talks and seminars on the cars and company, and contributes to many magazines on the subject.
Nigel Thorley has been involved with Jaguars from a very early age, his father and older brother having owned many examples of the marque. One of his earliest memories is of traveling in the passenger seat of his father's SS 21/2-liter saloon at the age of five. Since learning to drive, Nigel has owned all kinds of Jaguars, including no fewer than sixteen examples of the MkII series. This practical experience has allowed him to study this Jaguar model range in depth over many years, making him ideally qualified to write this book. He has been a director of the Jaguars Drivers' Club and at one time was editor of its magazine, Jaguar Driver. Subsequently he was founder member and chairman of the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, today being a director of the club and editor of the magazine, Jaguar Enthusiast. As well as many magazine articles about Jaguar, he has written over twenty books on the marque and its models.
