Maggie McNeal
(Sjoukje van 't Spijker)

The Netherlands First owner.
Dutch singer, former part of "Mouth & McNeal"
Her website says (translated & slightly edited):
"It was August 1972 when Sjoukje bought an Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato.
These were the days of Mouth & McNeal and because these were busy days, Sjoukje couldn't pick-up her car at the dealership right away.
When returning to their home in the Amsterdam Jordan quarter from a performance late at night with husband Frans, they would often drive by the dealership to take a peek at het new car through the showroom windows.
Once Sjoukje took delivery of the car, it quickly raked up the miles as after a mere 8 days, the odometer showed 866 KM and after two months it had already clocked 6.769 KM.
Frans & Sjoukje didn't have much fun with the Alfa as, in February 1973, at the end of the Swedish Mouth & McNeal Tour, the car ended up in a ravine... Sjoukje overtook a truck which swerved to the left, leaving Sjoukje no choice but to do the same with all consequences...
The Alfa was badly damaged but Frans & Sjoukje escaped unharmed.
Despite of the Alfa being a rare car of which only some 1117 were made and of which only 9 were in The Netherlands, Sjoukje decided to trade the car in on a Jaguar shortly after the accident."

Please note on the picture below that in 1972 / 1973, the JZ wore license plate 94-08-UR and that it now wears 94-80-UR. The reason for this is unknown but I expect an error on the original license plate which was later corrected as 94-08 renders no results and 94-80 shows a JZ which was first registered on August 14, 1972.

(March ?) 1973
