Let the Concours commence….

Just about there now aren’t we?  Silly season is upon us where we all get torn as to which event to attend most every weekend…. Between hosting viewings at the showroom on a Saturday, to my never-ending list of jobs that my wife seemingly dreams up for me at home on a Sunday, my ability […]

“Old Money” Bristol at just 1/16th the value of an Aston DB5….for now.

Bristol Cars, once dubbed “Britain’s most exclusive luxury car” are often misunderstood, occasionally overlooked, and too commonly underestimated, yet, they’re handsome, imposing, quality-built and over-engineered cars, they just lack the sex appeal of an Aston Martin or Jaguar.  Well, not this one!…

Bring on the Spring…

It’s been a long time coming, but the sun is finally here…  Well, some days anyway! We love this time of year as we see those tentative first drives for many old cars and motorcycles after their winter hibernation.  We also love that it’s a great time of year to be selling with many customers […]

Happy (belated) New Year!

So I’m clear, just how far into January is it reasonable to continue to wish Happy New year? In case I’ve missed the window, please rest assured that despite my not actually saying the words on the 1st January it was in my thoughts….

Will everyone please stop using the ‘C’ word….

It’s not even remotely close to “Christmas”.  There’s plenty of life still left in 2016 and we’re quite prepared to exhaust every inch of it to marry you with your dream classic or collectible car…. To that end, here’s just a small selection of the cars we’re very pleased to present to you.  Starting with […]

A fine month for fine cars….

After a flurry of sales in August we’re delighted to welcome some fresh cars into stock as we continue to enjoy what we anticipate will be an extended motoring season this year, thanks in no small part to the fine weather.  Even here in North Yorkshire we’re enjoying blue skies and sunshine, not that I’ve […]

New premises, new motor cars, and a brave new post-Brexit market…

It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that I have now succeeded in securing first-rate showroom and storage space from which to accommodate a greater number of cars in a Fort Knox-esque facility on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.  Fear not, I’m still only 12 miles from York railway station in […]

Wedding bells at Manor Classic Cars ….

I am delighted to announce that this Saturday Manor Classic Cars will not be hosting viewings on the cars we have for sale as I’ll instead be marrying the gorgeous (and exceedingly understanding!) Louise, and making her the happiest woman in the world… or something very close to that… We will be having a short […]

New summer stock

We’re pleased to welcome into stock two Lotus cars from 1965, one a spirited Super Seven Series II, the other an inimitable Cortina Mk.I in classic White with Green Cortina flashes. We’re also very privileged to be asked to help rehome a 1952 Aston Martin DB2 Saloon, part-restored, but a relatively simple project to complete […]

A fine day out at Swinton Park

We were delighted to last week sponsor and attend the Yorkshire Charity Clay Day shoot at Swinton Park in aid of the Countryside Alliance and The Prince’s Trust.  Well done to all those who participated and helped to raise a handsome sum for each cause.  Thank you also to those of you who took a […]
