About Wight Classics
Wight Classics is a friendly garage that offers restoration, repairs and maintenance for classic and vintage cars. We are careful to research the needs for a wide variety of cars, from pre-War sports cars to 70s and 80s saloons. However, we don’t generally work on cars that rely upon electronic systems: “if the car think’s for itself, then it’s not for us“.
Our team at Wight Classics
Charlie and Nigel run the mechanical side of the workshop, whilst Mick runs the bodywork side of the business with regular help from Stef and John. All share a love for classic vehicles and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to Wight Classics. Our owner Tim Addison has a long association with classic motorsport having been part of the original organising team for the International Historic Festival (now Silverstone Classic) at Silverstone in 1990. Just don’t get him talking about it… Tim is also involved in organising the Island’s first closed-road motorsport event since the 1950s – the Sandown Sprint over 28th & 29th March 2020, part of the Isle of Wight Speed Trials.
Full inhouse facilties
Having been founded in 2013, Wight Classics moved to Arreton Barns in 2014. The workshop has two inspection ramps as well as an engineering shop for engine and transmission rebuilds. Alongside is a large bodywork preparation space with full sized spray booth.
The team at Wight Classics work hard to provide value for money and we are never too busy to discuss car issues with our customers. Most of our business comes from personal recommendations and we aim to keep it that way.
