David Claghorn's 1967 Jaguar Model S was purchased by his grandfather and eventually passed down to him when he was in his 20s. Over the three years after the car became his, he painstakingly rebuilt the entire car at night after his day job of selling cars. His daughter, Liza Claghorn Donato, used to talk about driving away from her wedding in it. For her wedding last year, Claghorn surprised Liza by bringing the car two hours north of their home near Philadelphia up to the Poconos.
The leather of the seats is original.
