The MX5 world continues to move on at some rate and these days, I find myself spending more time tracking down cars that need a variety of jobs doing rather than cars that are ready to go immediately. Think of it as a smaller version of 'Wheeler Dealers' and you have a better idea of what I do. A small handful have morphed into near-full on restorations. However, the strength of Mk1 prices mean that this kind of extensive work is now financially viable and this situation will continue as prices of good Mk1s continue their slow but steady climb.
The big news this month is that we are slowly beginning to track down and import good cars from Japan again. The fact that the Japanese don't use salt on their roads mean that most of their cars are pretty well rust-free and thats quite a big deal if you want a really clean Eunos. First to arrive is a 1992 S-Special 1.6, something we're very excited about and it should be here within the next couple of weeks.
More big news: I'm about to launch an MX5 hire service. The idea is that you will be able to hire a nice Mk1 MX5 (actually a Eunos) to drive yourself. Plans are well advanced and I'll be taking bookings within the next couple of weeks with the cars available from January 1st 2020. Watch this space!
Another magazine article worth mentioning is the October issue of Classic and Sportscar which covers 30 years of the MX5. This features a particularly nice RS-Ltd and a rare LeMans special edition.
My cars sell very quickly which gives me a nice problem in that my website can become out of date very quickly. I try and keep on top of it but cars can come and go very quickly. Its always best to drop me a quick line to see what I have due in. If you are looking for something special, contact me and let me know. Who knows what I have up my sleeve!
As ever, I'm still using Facebook to give regular and quick news updates so please check out my pages on there: there are links on the 'Links' page here.
