  • I wouldn't trust anybody else with my 'baby'. They will look after your car as if it were their own, and they will give you time and service money can't buy. It's a pleasure being their customer.
    Helen Burman // VW Karmann Ghia
  • Very high quality of work, profound knowledge of everything air cooled and friendly and helpful to go with it. Won't take my bus anywhere else.
    Paul Silom // 1972 Bay Window Camper
  • Fabulous company who have given us fantastic service looking after our bay Hatty for the past five years.
    Helen Shepherd // Brazilian Bay
  • Found Larry and his team on the internet. Been looking for an aircooled specialist for ages. Hey got one in Baldock. From stage one to completing a absolute full overhaul checking all the nuts and bolts and completing a major service these guys were brilliant. And at an affordable price. Magic.
