Role within Barkaways:
Life before Barkaways:
I worked for 19 years at a specialist garage/engineering machine shop working on a variety of classic cars including early Corvettes and Mustangs, Shelby Cobras, De Tomaso Panteras, Maseratis, Iso Grifos and e-type Jaguars. Working in both the machine shop and garage side, I was able to carry out all the work involved in reconditioning the engines including crank grinding, head machining, dynamic balancing, re-boring blocks, rebuilding of engine, fitting and final tuning. I also restored and modified my own 1969 Ford Mustang – a 4 year project – eventually sold to an overseas buyer.
