Stuart MacNeill, our Director is a renown Classic XK Jaguar Specialist, an ex-Jaguar stores (CPS), accredited Group Leader and (quite probably the only one you will ever find in the Jaguar aftermarket). Coventry born and bred, he has been in the motor trade for over 35 years (in 2019) and he has run the company since 1994. Not just a parts box-opener, he actually understands engineering of parts from the material construction, right through manufacture to supply and correct finish and fitting, how it works and why it works. He can advise you on correct procedures for logical and progressive assembly of the vehicle, which is great for you chaps that don’t like to read the instruction manuals! He also writes articles for specialist Jaguar magazines such as XK Club and also publications that are available on new-stands worldwide. Some are to be found above, reproduced in the 'Articles' section on this website.

When not at work, he can be found playing with his XK 4.2, Classic Camaro Z28, hovercraft or practising stunts on his wakeboard at Kingsbury Water Park behind a powerboat. He’s not really getting old gracefully, as he has 'The Need For Speed!'

Salesman Barry (BAZ) Ruddock is an amazing mechanic, who is as good with repairing modern Jaguars as he is with classics and everyday cars, and in fact loves messing with anything mechanical.

Lorna is the company’s Accounts and Office Manager and has been with the company for over 26 years. She’s the quiet one in the corner that everyone loves chatting to when they call.

Our Storeman, Gordon, has been with us over 20 years and ensures all your parts parcels are professionally packed and received undamaged. Yes, it's his beautiful handwriting that you admired on your parcel and his careful packing you have had to fight your way through!
 
We are a very 'personal' company and many customers become lifelong friends as well as loyal customers, even after their cars are completed, and customers are always welcomed with a cuppa and regulars know to pre-order parts to ensure they are all  here as stock is constantly changing.

We can always help you, whether your XK is a racer, a daily driver or a concours show car.
