Peter Hugo — Sales
Peter is the Salesman, but just a little more than that! He’s a bit of a Historian and also an aesthete. He is as ‘picky’ about the cars that he sells as he is about those that he owns. He has a critical eye and will only stock cars with which he feels comfortable. Since buying his first car – an Austin 7 – in 1963 when he was 14, Peter has owned and competed in cars from the 1930’s to the present day – Riley, Lagonda, BMW and above all Jaguar! His mentors were Bill Meredith-Owen of The Stratford on Avon Motor Museum and also the legendary Rivers-Fletcher who taught him the ‘art’ of Speed Hill Climb.
Peter’s small collection of cars includes three Jaguar E-Types and a Jaguar XK150 Roadster and he is justifiably proud to have owned, until recently, one of the earliest E-Types: 1961 Chassis No. 850055. With external bonnet locks and separate bonnet louvre panels, it is the 55th RHD Roadster to have been produced.
Chris Window — Engineering
Chris is the Engineer – every job, whether large or small, is viewed with an engineer’s eye and a determination to “do the job properly”; for Chris there is no compromise – it is either done correctly or not at all. He has a no-nonsense approach, preferring to find the cause of the problem rather than just fit another part. His experience in this field has enabled him to accumulate a vast fund of knowledge to the benefit of both the car… and, of course, the customer!
Chris’ Jaguar XK120 Roadster, recently sold to its fourth owner, is a fitting testimony to his inherent abilities and determination to get things ‘just right’… it is a purist’s dream! He makes no apology, however, for owning also a Porsche 996 Turbo.
