For many years now I have been a “petrol head” and for the last 15 years or so fortunate enough to be in a financial position to indulge it. Cars are a fascination for me, the sound, the smell, raw power and of course the fun factor in hitting the road. I unashamedly say that I have had a large number of super cars which have all been amazing (and still are)but for some time I’ve felt there was something missing from my car collection and after getting a copy of classic car I realised what it was….. the legendary Triumph Stag. Being born in the 60’s this was THE car when I was growing up and ticked all the boxes with it’s stunning lines, beautiful V8 sound and of course what has become a retro look. The problem I was faced with next was that whilst I had loads of enthusiasm for driving cars the extent of my mechanical know how was filling up with petrol on a Sunday afternoon !!!
Undeterred I started looking into acquiring one and was quickly faced with the problem of varying prices, quite iffy pasts and also how do I know what on earth i’m buying here ! And it was the realisation of this that I decided to look for a company to restore one for me, not just paintwork and a tidy up but a complete restoration project that could deliver to be a “brand new” 1975 Stag or as my friends have reliably informed me “triggers new broom”.
Having contacted the Triumph Stag Owners Club i was recommended to engage with AM Restorations in Plymouth. I had my first meeting with Andy Moss mid 2016 and was immediately impressed with both his passion for Stags and his understanding of what I wanted to achieve with this project. As a result of this meeting I engages with AM Restorations to source a suitable vehicle (£1500) and start the painstaking job of restoring the car back to its former glory. Since the very first meeting AM Restorations have delivered a first class professional service at every single level, they have kept me in regular communication with frequent updates about the progress on my car, monthly billing has enabled me to have a completely transparent insight into the work they are doing and of course the cost plus regular photos of my car going through the various stages of the project, they have been a real pleasure to deal with and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
It is very easy to get into a project of this nature and have misgivings on either the company you have engaged with or the finished project but I must say I am 100% happy with everything.
Many thanks go to Andy, Lauren and the whole team at AM Restorations, you have delivered me a fantastic product and you have been a wonderful organisation to deal with.
