Long distance ride

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, October 6, 2004

Richard Hotson of Penn, England, drives his 1965 Jaguar XKE past the Illinois Memorial in the Vicksburg National Military Park Tuesday morning followed by another member of a Jaguar enthusiast club from overseas. The club is made up of members from England, Scotland, Ireland and Belgium who have Jaguars made as early as 1929. About 40 members had their cars shipped by ship to Galveston, Texas, where they started a 17-day U.S. tour on Oct. 1. They left Natchez Tuesday morning and toured the park here before heading to Memphis.(Meredith Spencer The Vicksburg Post)
