The Land Rover Discovery. 31 years old
In the mid 1980s, a new Land Rover model was being designed under the code name Project Jay, subsequently named Discovery. At the 1989 Press and Dealer launch in Plymouth there were 86 cars, all with consecutive registration numbers from G451WAC to G537WAC, enthusiast call them “gee-wacks”. (G-WAC)
In 2007, a few owners of these early cars met at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, and formed a group called the Project Jay Preservation Group to find the launch cars and any other Jay of interest. Jays were built from 1989 to 1993, which we know as the ‘200’. The ‘300’ had the code name Romulus.
The group have found 22 launch cars that are still “alive”; together with several other factory registered G-WACs that were used in the factory demonstration fleet, and as test cars. The group formed a club in January 2019 and have a website at www.pjpg.co.uk
