His classic 1964 Jaguar MK 2 Sedan was also baked.  Ken tells us; “It was a very traumatic experience for our family to see our house in flames and fearing the worst.”

We don’t have details on the cause of the fire at this time.  The value of the car losses and damage to the property appears significant and the insurance adjuster has already sealed off the garage until their expert reviews the scene.  Given the value of DS Chaprons in the car collector market, Ken’s preference is to save and restore his car.
