Mike Cook, a retired Jaguar product public relations manager, has been part of the British car world since his start at Triumph in 1958. Now as the archivist for Jaguar and the editor of Jaguar Journal, he's been a professional observer of the marque for years. When it comes to cars, he insists that "passion can be described as part inspiration and part impact." Or to put it another way, inspired automotive design that makes a big impact fosters passion.
