Lakeside Classics Ltd’ was born out of the passion for classic cars. My father has worked in the automotive industry all his life, building a career through the mass rental of lorries, vans and cars. Cars have always been a monumental part of his life, driving Porsches, Jaguars and many other now classic sports cars of his generation from an early age.
His enthusiasm for these beautiful items was inadvertently passed down to my brother and I for as long as I can remember. The catalyst for the creation of Lakeside Classics Ltd was born out the recent nut and bolt restoration of a Jaguar XK150 Drophead.
Witnessing this restoration first hand as well as seeing potential in the market spurred us to create the business and within a year the showroom was constructed. Numerous cars have been carefully selected over the last 18 months all now resting in the showroom, turning our dream of ‘Lakeside Classics Ltd.’ into reality.
