Welcome to Classic Heroes
Specialists in the sale, restoration, trackday or race preparation of those automotive performance icons of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s that ushered in a new direction for motoring.
This short video takes you on a tour of our Workshop and Barney takes the opportunity to explain a little about what we do at Classic Heroes.
Everybody who knows me well, will know that my love affair with German cars, especially BMW started many, many years ago with the E9 3.0 coupe, BMW’s range of luxurious GT Coupes built in the first half of the 1970s.
The powerful yet unassuming E28 M5 has been a favourite and constant companion to Randy Balingit-Hartmann since he bought it brand new in 1989. They have now completed over 400,000 miles together with total enjoyment and no major problems.
I hate to admit it, but sometimes I catch myself becoming a little complacent and have to remind myself just how very lucky I am to be surrounded by the most amazing motoring icons.
Readers may recall my past blogs when I competed in Targa Tasmania in my E30 M3 tarmac rally car?
We have just finished fitting the roll cage and rear brace to our E46 M3 track car. We use a code name for the E46 M3 track cars that we have built for customers. This car is CH-T46
Back in the 1990’s we enjoyed looking after many Alpina C2 2.7s in all their body designs reasonably often and looked after many. Who would have thought that these cars would be so tricky to find twenty years later. We just took these things for granted.
The Highline 635 was the last incarnation of the E24 and the most luxurious. This final evolution was produced between June 1987 and April 1989 and was a massive success for BMW. The Highline remains the most desirable of the E24 range and therefore the most collectable.
I hate to admit it, but sometimes I catch myself becoming a little complacent and have to remind myself just how very lucky I am to be surrounded by the most amazing motoring icons. I am well and truly spoilt by the incredibly high quality of cars that I have the passion and privilege to work with.
