Hard to believe September’s already here! With the workshop busy as ever, even throughout the summer (usually a quiet period for sports cars) we’re ready for the weather to cool a bit!
Speaking of cool, how’s this for a Griffith:
This pre-cat Griffith 430 is in with us for one of our full-chassis refurbs. The earlier cars do have a better powdercoating from new, but at some 21 years old it’s a fair game to now give this car the works! But Griffith 430s are a bit like buses. No, nothing to do with the way they drive! More to do with how they arrive, because to have one 4.3 Griffith here is a rarity, but two? Yup, there’s another one on the way also in for a refurb, along with an S. A winter of TVRs then!
Also on the cards for winter, a new website! Yeah, yeah, we know….this one isn’t exactly old! But contrary to what you might believe, the current site was more of a stop-gap thrown together. The fact it turned out as well as it did in a short space of time is down to our expert IT man, Andy. He’s now working on a fully polished version which will plugin to our Facebook page directly, meaning any update on there will be automatically replicated on here. The new site will fully feature the new logo, pages to projects past and present, detailed list of works available on TVR & MG models, aswell as kit cars. Also, a new page to feature the company’s demo cars including ‘Rob’ our slightly-battered TVR Chimaera, and the awesome Ultima GTR, which we’ll be running a competition to design the livery on in the near future.
Until then, our Facebook page can be found here: www.facebook.com/SouthwaysAutomotive
We’re delighted to announce that we will shortly be extending our range of services to cover MG cars. The decision to offer focused service and repairs to the MG range of cars was a straightforward one! With a number of us already enthusiasts of the marque (one of our staff members actually campaigns a ZS180 in the Peter Best Insurance Challenge) is seems a natural progression in the direction of the company to add the MG marque to our remit, which already covers TVR, Ultima and Tiger Racing to name just several British motor manufacturers.
MG is the longest established name in British motorsport, and one of the most well-known British marques since our motor industry began. The classics are often covered, but what about the later cars? Cars like the MGF/TF, and the ‘Zed’ range of vehicles? Mass-produced saloons and hatches they may be, but they’re often owned by people who are not in the dark about the importance of the history behind that octagon on the bonnet, and we believe these people would actively seek a workshop who view their car as they themselves do.
To that end, we’re currently compiling a fully-priced service menu, as well as a typical repair menu covering the usual suspects such as KV6 timing belt changes, K-series headgasket repair (and remedy) and even cures for the dreaded VIS ‘death rattle’, all of which to appear on our website shortly.
In the meantime, please contact us on 01329 220755, or email us via the ‘contact us’ link on this website for any enquiries you may have.
Until the end of September, we’re offering 6,000 & 12,000 mile services for only £250.00 or £400.00 (inc. VAT) respectively. Offer is limited to the first 100 customers only and applicable only to Chimaera and Griffith models. Get ’em booked while they’re hot!
