ABOUT INVESTOR CLASSICS
Investor Classics was started by its founder Graham Turnbull in 2016 as a means to keep the skills and expertise for the repair and restoration of classic cars alive in the Edinburgh area.
Graham is a qualified engineer, having graduated with a degree in Motorsport Engineering & Design in 2003. Following a career in the automotive industry, he wanted an outlet for his creative and mechanical flair.
Investor Classics was born from this passion, and it has evolved slowly into a thriving small family business.
We love motoring, particularly classic cars that were built between the 60s and the 90s, an era where cars were homologated for racing and the road going versions were lairy, lightweight and fun.
Classic cars to us are not the older Bentley Boys cars - they are the cars we lusted over on posters and the TV. The fire breathing Group B rally cars. Cossies, and turbocharged four wheel drive specials. The beautiful lines of aluminium hand crafted bodies. Think pre-cat and the smell of unburnt fuel. The sound of huge turbos or carbs. Peugeot winning the Pikes Peak, Lancia winning Group A, Senna winning F1. Thundercats were on the telly and excess was everywhere.
Most of all, excess was in the classic cars of the era - the wings, the box arches and the power! No electronic aids and lightweight nimble chassis. This is what we love and this is what Investor Classics is all about.
WeI started Investor Classics as a culmination of a lifetime of passion for classic and sports cars. From the boys who had the posters of the white Ferrari Testarossa and red Porsche 959 on their bedroom walls to the spotty youths who watched Mansell, Senna, Mouton and McRae racing the fastest machines on Earth, we have always had a love affair with the fast and the powerful.
We're never far away from classic cars and can generally be found at UK motoring events, particularly GT Scotland and Tartan Tarmac. We also sit on the committee of the annual Run to classic and sports car rallies.
We're geeky car enthusiasts, but also proper old fashioned engineers. We take personal pride in all the vehicles that we restore and service at Investor Classics.
If you are looking to buy, maintain, restore or sell a classic car in Edinburgh, Scotland, or the rest of the world, we'd love to meet you and to help you realise your dream.
