About Us

Joe, Rob and Walt Osborn

Vintage Jag Works is a family business that started in Utah in the late 1980's. The business moved to eastern Idaho in 1993. We specialize in mechanical and restoration services, component rebuilding and parts sales for older Jaguars.

Walt has always had a love of automobiles and especially of Jaguars. His first full-time job was at the local Studebaker dealership as an assistant parts man. He bought his first Jaguar when he was 19 years old. Since then he has owned and operated Jaguar parts and repair shops in Arizona, Illinois, Utah and now in Idaho.

Joe has been working on Jaguars since he was 10 years old. He became ASE Master Certified in 2009. He is the head mechanic and his specialties are troubleshooting mechanical and electrical problems and rebuilding components, especially electrical and carburetors and steering gears and other things that are very difficult to work on. Joe is careful, methodical and finds the problem.

Rob started working in the family business when he was 12 years old. He got involved with the assembly and detail work on Jaguars and then started painting cars. He is especially good at the details whether it is leading a joint on a body panel or making a grill fit just right.

Ray is the computer and business expert and although he doesn't work full-time for the company, his assistance is invaluable. He is responsible for the technical part of this website.

Arlene has a degree in English, so naturally she keeps the books and runs the office.
