Cars, LLC is owned and run by Tony & Jennie Kipling.
They started Old
English Cars in July 2006, a small specialist repair shop working soley on classic British vehicles in their adopted
home of Western North Carolina, but have now moved back home to Yorkshire and are still working on vintage and classic British
cars. Our Website is currently being updated so please bear with us as most pages still reflect our USA life.
The business grew beyond their expectations thanks to good
old fashioned values and many word of mouth referals from loyal and happy customers who bring their cars from Alabama,
Tennessee and South Carolina as well as the local Western North Carolina area.
They were featured in a 2-page color article in the November 2007 issue of the international
LAND ROVER MONTHLY magazine, and have been featured as Small Business of the Week in the Asheville Citizen Times. In early 2011 the business premises were expanded to double the workshop and car storage space, and 2012 was
another very busy and sucessful year.
In December 2012 we announced to our customers that we are moving back
home to England in 2013 and would not be accepting any new work in the New Year. We closed the workshop once all restoration work was finished at the end of March 2013,
and after selling off our vehicles and equipment and a huge yard sale we left the Mills River premises at the end of April
to embark on an 8 week trip around the USA in an old motor home, visiting Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon among many other
wonderful places. A leisurely trip home concluded with a transatlantic crossing back home on Queen Mary II.
The new UK workshop opened in 2014 on a small scale without a website or advertising but as
the business re-grows we shall soon get the website going again. Do check back soon.
As a customer of Old English Cars
you were part of our success. Thank you!
