We are pleased to have an established group of staff working with us, all of whom are passionate classic car enthusiasts with the technical skill to back it up.
Owner & genius with the welder, panel beating hammers & paint spraying. Steve has over 20 years of experience in the car restoration field. Whilst working on ‘modern’ cars, he started off by helping his Dad – Lawrie Green at home with his recently aquired classic TR2. From that moment on, Steve had fallen in love with classic cars and his future was set in the world of classic car restoration.
Mechanic and fount of much knowledge, Lawrie Green is perhaps responsible for RBW Classic Cars. Lawrie is an experienced Routes man and when he bought his lifelong dream – a classicTR2 home to work on with his son – Steve – ignited the spark of passion that led Steve Green to dedicate his career to the restoration of classic cars.
Former nurse and HR Director turned business manager and all support functions in the office and workshop. She knew very little about cars let alone classics before coming to work at RBW but now has a reasonable knowledge. When she first started she was the blaster – which was the source of some amusement to customers when the blaster took off their helmet, cries of ‘its a lass’ were not uncommon!
Rob came to us on the Heritage Lottery funded training scheme, and he specialised in bodywork. He is an expert in welding and body forming and has extended his skills to jig work and fibre glassing.
Mechanic, Jim came from a previous life as an MOT tester and mechanic with a hobby that was based on classic cars. Working alongside Lawrie he is quickly becoming expert in older car mechanics, including the use of our Crypton Tuner. Jim is a Stag & Beetle enthusiast.
Our blaster – Andrew’s skills in the blasting department are second to none!
Top security dog and general meeter, greeter and motivator.
Our trainee in the paint shop, Dave comes from a background of valeting and enthusiasm for classic cars – his attention to detail is essential in the paint shop
We were the first classic car garage to have apprentices via the Heritage Lottery funded scheme, it is good to now have classic cars recognised as part of our heritage. Sadly this funding stream has now ceased but we have 2 young men working with us who have benefited hugely from it and who have a very positive future as a result of it.
