Good afternoon

Robin LawtonI have been involved with Vintage and Classic motor cars since the mid-1960s when I acquired my first car – a Riley Monaco - at the age of 15. I entered the motor trade in 1968 with Wadhams Group, before moving onto University Motors in the 1970s. In 1982 I successfully set up my own specialist Garage – Guildford Sports & Classic Cars - offering MG, Triumph TR and Austin Healey along with a range of quality pre-war cars.

For many years I was head of the Classic and Historic Automobile Division of British Car Auctions, which included the consignment and sale of Vintage & Classic Cars from all over the UK & Europe, attracting marques such as Aston Martin, Lagonda, Bentley, MG, Riley, Alvis, Packard, Rolls-Royce to name but a few.

This lifetime of living and breathing Vintage and Classic cars has given me an amazing network of contacts and a wealth of experience and knowledge of sales, service and restoration. I have owned and restored a number of vintage and 1930s motor cars over the years, including Austin, Morris, MG and Riley.

I am a keen and active member of several clubs, including the VSCC, Riley Register and Austin Ten Drivers’ Club, of which I am President.  I am often invited to provide commentary and concours judging at many Club events.

I believe my absolute passion for Vintage and Classic Cars coupled with my depth of experience will ensure you are given sound advice whether buying, selling or running and owning such motor cars.
