This 1967 Jaguar XKE "E Type" one owner from
new and all original. This one got lots of attention from everyone who came into our shop in March 2008.
We rebuilt and tuned the carburetor to cure a fuel leak and fitted new brakes and exhaust
to make this car a joy to drive again.
We rebuilt the engine for the owners of this classic Austin Mini Cooper in early 2008.
This lovely 1959 Morris Minor is called Rupert, he's been in the same
family in Hendersonville for many years and is a daily driver, we are happy to be part of keeping him on the road.
1967 Healey 3000. Came in for a check over, tune up and oil change.
No, you're not seeing double - we had two Austin Healey Sprites in the
shop. Known as a Bugeye here, known to us Brits as a Frogeye, you cannot help but smile when you see one!
The Sprite on the left had been in our shop for several months, it came in
as a painted rolling bodyshell, we refitted the engine and all electricals and got it running again. The car won
a trophy at Autumn in the Mountains 2007 and can been seen at many local car shows and British Car Club events.
The Sprite on the right came in for a new fuel tank.
This 1952 MG TD came into the shop for recomission
after standing for several years.
With all new brakes, tires, exhaust, gaskets, hoses, belts, suspension, thermostat, carbuetor jets, fuel pump,
and many more new parts we went through every component on the car to make it
safe to drive again. The original owners daughter drives it now, a new lease of life for a much loved car.
This stunning 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II belongs
to a local customer, we tuned the carburetors and sorted out some wiring problems.
Customer comments: Thank you for the work you did on my Silver Cloud II, the
lights work properly and people can actually tell when I put my brakes on. The car runs much smoother - more Rolls like.
Thanks again for all of your help, we are very pleased that you are there to help! R.W. Asheville NC
