About Us

Who we are

Proprietor. John Simmons CAE AMIMI

I am a member of the Institute of the Motor Industry and the Federation of Small Businesses. I still attend training sessions and seminars to keep up to date with the modern motor industry.

With vehicles from the 1930s to those of the present day, my skills, experience and equipment allows me to work efficiently and professionally on any job.

I started my life in the motor industry in 1971 and served my apprenticeship and subsequent City & Guilds qualifications in the restoration of Packard, Rolls Royce and Bentley motor vehicles, at one of the UK’s leading independent restorers.

I have been repairing and restoring American vehicles all of my working life, which gives me an amount of experience that many UK repairers are unable to equal.

As well as a solid customer base in the South East, we have regular customers throughout the UK and into Europe. With regular clients in France, Spain, Switzerland and even on the Algarve in Portugal, to whom I offer an on-site service if required.

Many of our customers cars feature regularly in Classic American Magazine.
