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