The car has arrived, and it is absolutely stunning. It also drives like a dream. As promised I gave Anthony 20 euro (gave him a tip as well, as he was very nice to deal with) to make up for the shortfall in the asking.
It’s been a real pleasure doing business with you. You’re an old school gent- I will be coming to you for any future classic car purchases and so will my family.
Good Evening Martin,
Thank you for the courtesy extended to me on my visit today. It was indeed a pleasure to see such a beautiful example of a 500SEL nicely presented. As promised I have forwarded the Aston Martin pictures to David Clouston who has nice vehicle collection.
Having seen the standard of vehicles on your site today I would have no problem recommending customers to you and will do so if the opportunity arises. Good luck with the sale of the car to Joe, he is a gentleman to deal with and I am sure he will want to own it.
Just a word to confirm that the Austin Healey has well arrived and been properly delivered by Anthony today.
The car is even more beautiful than expected. Thanks. I hope now that all parts will operate properly in the future!
Lovely to talk to you Martin,
What a lovely gentleman makes a real change in this day and age.
Would you be kind enough to send more pics front on... and the inside including the dash board etc.
Absolutely fantastic, the car is exactly as described I am well impressed thanks. Stephen’s delivery was on time professional and very attentive pleasure to deal with.
I am sure we will do more business in the future.
If you have a client that is interested please send him to wonderful Somerset. (on your terms)
I cannot allow her off my property unless sold.
100k to me is hard earned and deserved, you deal daily with 500k cars with a blink of an eye, i do not.
Bless you Martin for your interest and care, i have never dealt with a classic car dealer before and you are truly a gentleman.
All the best,
Car arrived safely (virtually wrapped in cotton wool) and is a real pleasure to drive – my old 320 was nice but this reminds me of the enjoyment of my old 1990 500SL. One disappointment was that the “hot” weather caused the almost all hardtop roof lining to come unstuck from the hardtop – we’ll get it fixed before I put the hardtop way in storage.
Once again many thanks for your patience with all this.
Best wishes to you your family and your colleagues.
Have today sent money for car. It should reach you tomorrow. Please let me know if it doesn’t arrive.
It was really nice meeting Peter. I could have talked shop all day with him. Such a nice person and a talented restorer who loves what he does.
Looking forward to seeing the Vauxhall again and taking it for a long drive. Delivery when convenient for you, but it would be helpful to have advance notice because away in motor caravan quite often.
Nice doing business with you.
Thank you so much the car looks amazing! A first class job thank you so much! If you ever need anyone for a reference (you most likely don’t because it speaks for itself) please give them my name.
Peter has done a superb job and you can see the attention to detail.
Thank you again and hope to do business again soon.
