and chrome. Other classic cars are more

Classic cars often require a lot of work and

would be the ultimate solution for us.''
Jesmond and Gloria are exceptionally
professional in their attitude, and one
quote from a client on their website sums up
''Jesmond is an outstanding professional,
extremely polite, helpful and informative. He
made the process of purchasing a pleasure
due to his efficiency and knowledge. We were
very impressed with the standard and
