If you’ve visited the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, you’ll know what a brilliant place it is, with displays to keep every car enthusiast entertained. Now, you can have your own classic looked after by their own skilled engineers.
The Museum has announced that its workshop will now be open to customers’ cars, and with almost half a century of experience maintaining their collection of more than 280 vehicles, you can be sure that yours will be in safe hands. That collection includes everything from vehicles dating back to the earliest days of motoring, up to the pre-1970s – basically, before electronics started to make things a bit complicated!
National Motor Museum Manager and Chief Engineer Doug Hill said: “We are proud to be offering our skills to owners of older motor vehicles, helping them to keep their much-loved vehicles in fine working order. Between us, we have built up a collective experience of more than 100 years, working on some of the finest motor vehicles in the world. Now we are delighted to be helping other enthusiasts to look after their own cars and preserve their historic importance.”
The Museum told us that they will be able to tackle just about any job, from general maintenance to bigger repairs and full restorations. And if your classic has been off the road and needs recommissioning, they can do that, too. The experience of the engineers also means they look forward to working on any vehicle, the workshop currently containing a customer’s 1913 Hudson and a 1955 Morris Minor.
So if you’re looking for a new garage to work on your treasured motor, you can e-mail the Museum at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
Mike Brewer says: “I’ve always been a huge fan of the Museum, and with such a cracking range of vehicles, there really is something for everyone to enjoy. I reckon this is a great idea, and means your cherished classic will be looked after by real experts. With the difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, I’d definitely encourage people to show their support and give this a try.”
