Top Recommended Classic Car Experts
‘The market is buoyant,’ says Nigel Woodward, who’s delighted about his new role as MD at Bridgnorth-based CMC, which he has joined from Jaguar Land Rover, where he ran the classic car department. ‘It’s the culmination of my career,’ says Woodward, who started out as a technician at BMW and later worked at Aston Martin.
Renowned in particular for its Jaguar restorations, CMC’s team of engineers and technicians provides an international client base with a range of services, including full restorations and even bespoke car design and manufacture, as well as storage.
‘Hopefully we offer not just the ability to restore cars and bring them back to their former glory, but also to help maintain and service and prepare them and keep them on the road,’ says Woodward. ‘Everything is under one roof, and because the entire process takes place here, we have complete quality control.’
As well as restoring and stocking some of the world’s most desirable E-types, CMC also deals with anything from Aston Martins to Bugattis and even has a Mustang in the workshop at the moment. Woodward is passionate about the Ferrari 512 and Alfa Romeos from the Sixties, while his career highlight was restoring a Stirling Moss Aston Martin DB3S.
