The key to a successful classic car project is about people and their skills.  When we couldn’t find the people with the right skills to meet the type and standard of work we do, we decided to create them.  The Great Escape Workshop is run by Julian Mills, a highly knowledgeable classic car restorer with 30 years experience.  He manages a young, enthusiastic team that he has developed and trained over several years.  So rather than relying on inherited experience, the skills we sell are ones that we’ve created to exactly match the standards we set.

The team honed its skills maintaining the Great Escape Cars high mileage hire fleet.  That really is life at the sharp end of classic car restoration – these cars typically cover 1,000 miles a week and require 100% reliability.

To arrange a visit to view our workshop and meet the team call 01527 893733 or email graham@greatescapecars.co.uk.
