Spring 2015. Here comes the Summer!

It is fair to say that we are off to a flyer.  2 Broadsport xk120 build projects are nearing completion with new owners awaiting there imminent completion. The first Broadsport e type is body beautiful in a stunning Aston Martin apple green colour. The long time jaguar fan owner can hardly contain his excitement at the thought of the finished car.

We have 2 Bristol cars nearing completion and a nicely varied workshop of day to day servicing, upgrades and rebuilds.

Such is the busy times we are enjoying that we have taken on miles as an apprentice. He’s a 17 year old young man who cycles in with a smile on his face every morning. Today he’s working with our supposedly retired but ever present john pope restoring a cylinder head. This afternoon he will join Alan and Charlie stripping an e type for a fresh coat of paint. James is working on completing the restoration of ex works tr3a 46hp ready for its new owner to collect later in the week.

Stock

Our stock of XK’s for sale is simply superb. Something for everybody. The chap who bought the e type remarked that we must have the best stock of XK’s available in the country. I suspect JD Classics may argue not, but there are some stunning cars ready to drive home today. All with a warranty to take the doubt out of ownership

Racing

Our own racing has taken a bit of a back step this year. We have Chateau Impney booked in and Goodwood is highly likely for our ex works tr2. A back step because angus fender has taken rather as a duck to water the new British championship class of junior karting with the X30 iame engine. In a supposed development year he won the second round of the 8 round championship with  50+  hopefuls fighting for the win! Could get expensive and we do need a sponsor. So if you want to help develop and invest in a young talent then please let me know. We will make it worth your investment. There is no such thing as a free lunch as they say!

Broadsport XK’s

We have 3 new projects to build over the next period of time. One is a very early right hand drive car. The other 2 are back from America and can be whatever your dream XK is.

Spring servicing

We are in full swing. Please book ASAP to get your car fettled for the spring/summer

What we do

Occasionally in life, there comes a time when second best simply isn't good enough. A time when you've worked hard and dealt with the tough issues life throws at you to the point when you can say 'this time I want the best'. 6 years ago I reached that moment.

We are enthusiasts and enjoy nothing more than competing in race, rally and hillclimb events. Following our Le Mans Classic exploits in 2010 where we were the first drum braked car home in our XK120, things went a lttle quiet until Guy had a fantastic result at the Goodwood revival in the same 120 and then again in the Cooper Bristol.

Our stock of classic cars is changing on a regular basis. We have cars that are 'turn key' and ready to go. Others are in the latter stages of restoration or final preparation. Please call and discuss your requirements. We can usually find what it is you would like even if we don't have it presently in stock. We are always looking for similar stock.
