We are Delighted to offer this remarkable Aston...
In this Autumn/Winter 2023 edition content includes, 4 fantastic new videos featuring a behind the scenes look at life on the Farm as we reflect on our 30th year at Nicholas Mee. Alongside this our 2023 Market Review looks back at an interesting year for the Classic Car Sector and Aston Martin Marque. We also bring to you a new case study featuring "The Royal Cherry," a 1986 Aston Martin V8 EFI that we partially restored this summer and finally we bring you a video featuring our award winning Apprentice Neil.
Also included is our 1st Generation Vanquish Guide and much more.
See below for a breakdown of the contents:
Peter Tomalin, motoring journalist and former editor of Vantage magazine, drives, comments on and offers a comprehensive buyer’s guide for the first-generation Vanquish. His considered views come from a position of great experience and authority and arrive just at the right time as the model transitions from used car to classic car status.
In this year’s market roundup video we are in conversation with guests David Lillywhite, editor of Magneto magazine and co-organiser of the annual Saville Row concours, and senior Private Client manager at Hagerty Classic Car Insurance Dan Cogger, a passionate devotee of classic cars – and Aston Martin owner. Both are industry professionals and highly active in the classic car world. Their views make interesting listening, along with a little input from us, the show ably steered as always by Steve Wakefield, our very own Michael Parkinson.
Existing classic V8 owners will be interested in our case study, the refurbishment of a 1986 V8 Efi. Now 35 years or more old, many V8s can need varying levels of renovation and recommissioning rather than a costly full-blown restoration. A fine line exists between the two. Our video presentation goes into the detail of a typically ‘lightly dilapidated’ AM V8 our team of technicians recently rescued and preserved for the future.
We’re also delighted to bring you a film of life on the Farm, beautifully shot by videographer (and neighbour) Simon Friedberg who recorded it in his own time and on his own terms. Simon has captured the working life of our team quite beautifully, and you’ll get a lot of insight on why we love these cars so much. Sit back and enjoy it, and do let us know what you think.
With classic and exotic car events rising in popularity, planning has never been more challenging. Premier shows such as the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace, the Goodwoods, the Silverstone Classic and Aston Martin-related events have never been more popular. Please see the guide to our favoured events in 2024 at which we will either be exhibiting or attending.
The Historic & Classic Vehicles Alliance, known in shorthand as the HCVA, is on a roll and now gaining traction at government level. The HCVA is a trade body that represents the UK’s classic car industry, a sector that provides over 110,000 jobs in the UK, turning over £15 billion+ last year whilst delivering over £3 billion to HMRC. Lobbying on our (and your) behalf, the HCVA looks at all important matters of the moment: liquid fuels, sustainability, apprenticeships, the DVLA and more. In a rapidly changing world, it’s an organisation we are delighted to support
We’re delighted bring a cheering video about our current apprenticed rising star. An award winner at this year NEC Classic Car Show, his off-the-cuff, revealing and encouraging comments speak for themselves.
Do please take a look at our changing stock of cars for sale, and if there is anything there which would look better in your garage than ours, let us know and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
