Who are we?
Well - the intention is that serveral of us will co-oparate and provide interesting cars for sale. But in particular Charles Fripp and Alistair Hacking who have worked together over the last twenty years concentrating particularly on Jaguar XKs and more recently ACs and Bristols. For some background see below.

Why?
It is a great opportunity to savour short term alternative motor cars prior to selling them for someone else to indulge and enjoy. Our background may give you some insight into the pursuit of searching for, purchasing and ultimately selling these sort of cars.

Where?
Charles is in Somerset and Alistair in West Sussex but some of the cars are in Hampshire. For details of who to phone and where each car can be viewed go to the "click here for more pictures" link below the photo of the car on the Cars For Sale page and bring up the detailed page for the individual car.
Charles was brought up in a family of motoring enthusiasts. His father Archie had a passion for ACs and for more than 50 years his daily transport was a Thames Ditton AC. Charles first car was a 1936 AC 2-4-6 coupe which was restored over some fifteen years moving from house to house and spending time with many parts in boxes under beds. Later an AC 428 was used as everyday transport for seven years giving many passengers white knuckle rides before the onslaught of radar traps and speed cameras.

Whilst AC Acecas and Greyhounds came and went there were also MGs, Austin Healeys, Alfas and many others sporting machines before a serious involvement with Jaguar XKs began about 20 years ago. Athough and architecht by profession and an antique dealer by inclination Charles established Twyford Moors Garage at Twyford near Winchester to specialize in the restoration and sale of XKs. This grew into the present enterprise which is one of the leading single marque specialists in the UK.

Twyford Moors built a series of very fast racing XKs - particularly remembered are the "Yellow"Peril" XK 120 roadster and the XK 150S Fixed Head well known as Goodwood. In earlier years a Camaro was a long term favourite at a time when American cars were not as common on the historic racing scene as they are nowadays.

Charles current stable includes the family's old 1936 AC four seater sports recently acquired after many years in USA and the well known racing AC Aceca Bristol 49 VMT extensively campaigned by Ron Brightman and Hugh Dibley from 1957 to 1962 and which ran at the 2005 Goodwood Revival meeting

Having concentrated for many years on Jaguar XKs and with Twyford Moors now in new ownership it seems a natural progression to involve ourselves with other interesting motor cars.

Alistair has had a passion for cars since early childhood with a tradition of enthusiasm for fine motor cars on both sides of the family. Albums from the late 1920s show a Weymann bodies 6 1/2 litre Bentley on one side and a 40 hp Lanchester on the other. And SSs then a succession of Jaguars as family cars fondly remembered - including driving lessons on a Cotswold Blue Mark 1 3.4. Nowadays a Jaguar would not be considered a suitable car for driving lessons but in those days it did not seem remotely strange to be learning to drive on the family car.
Nowadays Alistair has a particular interest in Veteran cars and specifically the early years of the motor industry and motoring in Scotland. His stable includes a 1902 Paisley built Arrol-Johnston Dogcart originally owned by a doctor in Beauly near Inverness and subsequently in the Sword Collection.

Also a 1913 Arrol-Johnston 15.9 Tourer built in Dumfries and a rare 1905 Glasgow built Albion car with limousine bodywork by AC Penman of Dumfries - coachbuilders established in 1859 and still in business today. This car spent 45 years in a Swiss Motor Museum.

A particular favourite - the 1955 Bristol 405 DHC
The Albion A3 model was introduced in 1903 and continued in production until 1914 - it was the model on which Albions legendary reputation for reliability was based. Most were built as commercial vehicles - shooting breaks, wagonettes or post buses for use in rural Scotland. But large numbers were also exported to the colonies.
Alistair is also a Bristol enthusiast - specifically the BMW derived 2 litre Bristols manufactured by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in the late 1940s and during the 1950s when the quality of the engineering was exceptional. These were expensive cars in their day and good examples drive remarkably well. The charismatic Bristol engine was used by AC in Aces, Acecas and Greyhounds so Alistairs enthusiasm for things Bristol fits with Charles interest in ACs.
