|Consolidated Auto Works opened its doors for
business in 1969. During
their 41 years in business Ed and Barbara Grayson have had the
opportunity of servicing Jaguar’s for both the
enthusiasts and the every day driver.
They have enjoyed every aspect of the marque and
have been involved in the Jaguar clubs both local and national. Both have held the position of president in the local club
and currently Barbara is treasurer of the local Jaguar club. Also on the local level they have put together many events
including rallies, slaloms, dinners with both the Group 44 and TWR
Jaguar race teams and the Western States Meet, a multi western club
event. They were both involved with the All British Field Meet since its
inception at Portland International Raceway. In 1992 Barbara was the
chairman of the ABFM in which Jaguar was the featured marque.
Ed has been working on Jaguar’s since 1974 and is
quite passionate about the marque. In 1982 Ed campaigned a 1966 Jaguar E
Coupe on the concours circuit and won National champion in his class that year.
He has also held many technical sessions at the shop.
