CMC’s annual open day in 2021 is to celebrate the 60th birthday of the  Jaguar E-Type and everyone is invited to the party.

The event will take place at CMC’s headquarters in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, on Saturday August 28th and the company would like to see as many E-Types attending as possible. They will have the opportunity to  be entered into a grand E-Type Concours for a variety of prizes from CMC.

But of course, the celebration is not restricted to E-Types. Guests are welcome to turn up in whatever car they own. Last years’ event, which celebrated the Jaguar Mark 2 saw some 5,000 people attending with more than 100 classic cars on display. CMC would like to break that record.

CMC’s Managing Director Nigel Woodward said: “ We want this open day to be an  enjoyable day for the whole family,  so like last year, we will have live music, food and beverage stalls, indoor markets and  activities for children. There will be an array of Automobilia traders, toy dealers  heritage parts dealers, motoring art and books and much more.”

He added: “ We will be opening the doors to our fantastic workshop so that people  can  look around and see some of the skills and craftsmanship involved in Classic Car restorations. Practical demonstrations will take place and our skilled technicians will be on site ready to answer technical questions.”

Nigel said: “ Over the next few months we will be announcing a range of exciting additional activities, including  items we will be producing to mark the E-Type anniversary. This  is particularly  important to CMC which was founded on the excellent restoration of many early Jaguar E-Types, work which it is still carrying on today.”

He added:  “ We want to make this  a Birthday party to remember. The event will be masterminded as usual by Sarah Bulger who this year will be assisted by Harry Wassell. If you would like to register your car for the E-Type Concours, have a stall, or have any queries then please make contact with Harry, who can be contacted on 01746 765804 or email him:
