Classic Friendly was founded by TV’s ‘Car SOS’ presenter and former Practical Classics magazine Technical Editor, Fuzz Townshend and Longmynd Classic owner, Lee Reynolds. With the newest, third member of the team and marketing manager-Simon Downing. Who’s passion for classics started at a young age, before working for Vicarage {Jaguar Specialists} and entering the world of classic cars. Between the three of them, they have more than 70 years of experience in the motor trade, with long histories in classic repairs and ownership.

Between them, they have built the Classic Friendly business and devised the vehicle inspections with a view to assisting motorists to maintain their cars at an optimum service condition and thus comply with the law. This is especially important with regards to pre-1960 cars and motorcycles in use on today’s roads, as these are no longer required to undertake an annual MoT test, yet there were over 200,000 such vehicles tested in the year 2012.
