WHO WE ARE
Retro Classica was born out of an “I can do better then that!” attitude, having had a Mercedes Benz 190SL restored by a specialist to an apparently concourse condition and paying £18,000 for the privilege! I then find out over the course of a few months that it’s far from concourse. So I started Retro classica, having been involved in the motor trade for the last 20 years primarily in the body shop industry I set about finding premises local to me with a view to creating a transparent service for my clients. At the moment 50% of the cars that are currently being restored are my own and will be sold as and when they are ready. The other 50% belong to customers and an old friend who is a famous petrol head! The service that we offer our clients is slightly different in that we welcome a little hands on from the customer if need be, that way the owner can see all the stages of repair as they happen. This approach to the restoration will help to keep the costs at a controllable level at all times. As the web site progresses more and more detail of current repairs will be shown as the quality of our paintwork is excellent and while we’re incredibly enthusiastic about all things car we’re also mindful of cost to repair and as such we carryout a usable restoration at a minimum cost in a bid to enable the classic to be used and enjoyed rather then shown and stored and to that end we will not be beaten on cost/quality ratio.
