Favourite Aston Martin

DB4 and a 1980 V8 Vantage with the black crackle dash. The DB4 because it was the original penning and is simple and the lightest of the DB 4,5 and 6s and feels more nimble. The V8 Vantage as I always liked the muscle car look of it and they are great motorway cruisers. You can do 800 miles of driving in a day and still feel relatively comfortable at the other end.

When I’m Not At Work I like to

Fine wine and fine food. Driving my classic cars on empty roads early in the morning in England and any time in France. Working on my classic cars. Running on country paths and woods. Off road running basically. Doing a bit of all sorts of exercise to burn off the excess of fine wine and fine food. Used to do a bit of motor racing with almost 200 wins. Not raced for a few years but have recently done a few classic races. I got Grade 8 piano when young and want to get back to playing as good as I used to.

Specialities at work

Attention to detail and mechanics particularly cylinder head rebuilds and complete suspension rebuilds.

Favourite Aston Martin

A DB4 with no bumpers. Because of how they look and drive yet are very simple in relation to later DB models. For modern Astons my favourite is a Vanquish Volante.

When I’m Not At Work I like to

Go racing and to the gym. I am currently developing a highly modified engine for a Citroen Saxo to compete in Hot Hatch. Got a passion for Aston Martins as Dad has a DB7 i6, DB9 and a 1977 V8 which we plan to restore together at home.

Favourite Aston Martin

Aston Martin DB6 - being the first Aston I did a body restoration on and later drove. Great drivability and comfort due to being a later model.

Specialities at work

I am an apprentice so still learning. I originally came here for work experience at school and was offered an apprenticeship. I currently learning how to rebuild the doors on a V8 that has been re sprayed. I enjoy doing suspension work as how it all works and how important it is interests me.

Favourite Aston Martin

Aston Martin DB4 Zagato. I like the styling and also the rarity of them makes them interesting. They are a part of the companies history.

Work on my own car and other projects I have, go to the gym and attend Aston Martin Owners Club events.

Favourite Aston Martin

Series 3 V8 Vantage. First car I worked on when I started at P & L was a Series 3 V8. Second car was an X-pack V8. The look and sounds of these cars have grown on me since I started working. Road testing of the X-pack was a great drive and the acceleration of the car amazed me.
