Visit to New Forest Classic Cars 1st October

classic-cars-2016On  1st October members enjoyed an informal open morning  at New Forest Classic Cars at their unit on the Ampress industrial estate.  This fascinating local business employs highly skilled engineers and craftsmen to restore and rebuild classic cars, principally E-Type Jaguars.
Their starting point can be a car which is little more than a rusting relic, but they have the skills to completely rebuild and re-engineer by hand, going so far as to source original paint and upholstery colours. All work is carried out on site, so we had the opportunity to see not only the engineering but the upholstery section and the body and paint shops, as well as cars in various stages of restoration.
It really is encouraging to see these skills being developed and employed locally, and these same experts were on hand all morning to answer our questions. It certainly was thoroughly enjoyable and informative.
Refreshments were provided and we would really like to thank the whole team at NFCC for their hospitality. We also wish them luck in their new home, as they have bought the classic car garage in Beaulieu and will be relocating there.
