Order and Collect from DMG at the Stoneleigh Jaguar Show October 2013

The Jaguar Parts Day at Stoneleigh is nearly upon us. Incase you didn’t know, the Stoneleigh Event is probably the biggest Jaguar Spares day in the world. It has been an important day in the calendar for many years, and the David Manners Group are regulars.

In recent times, our customers have told us its increasingly more convenient for them to order and collect from the show. So we now offer this service, no matter how big or small your order.

If you order from us between now and Thursday October 10th, we will pack your order and take with us to the Stoneleigh Show. Then simply find us at the show and collect your goods when convenient.

For more updates on the Stoneleigh show and other calendar events, please follow our Facebook or Twitter Pages

Sporting Triumph Car at the 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals

One of our American MG & Triumph Customers sent us some pictures from the 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals earlier this month.

We are all used to seeing various hybrids of so called ‘Big Foots’ but at the David Manners Group, we  have never seen a Triumph car sported as such. Classic MG & Triumph Cars have always been embraced in the US and there is still a huge interest in them today. And if this wasn’t the case, we may never have seen this conversion as it is highly unlikely us Brits would turn up to a Triumph Car show with one of these, let’s face it (feel free to prove us wrong ;).

We may have inadvertently assisted with some parts for this Triumph. We are currently trying to find out.

E-Type Jaguar & Aston Martin DB-5 Arrive at the David Manners Group

In the past week, our customers have been kind enough to send us thank you letters posted with the New Classic Car Stamps that were released earlier this summer.

It was particularly fitting that one of our Jaguar E-Type Customers addressed his with an E-Type Stamp (we think he bought the West Midlands’ Post Office Allocation  – sshh).

The second letter we have received is a 1963 Aston Martin DB5 – The Classic James Bond Car.
We do sell parts for this car but in my time here, I have never seen one on our car park. If you have one of the new Classic Stamps, why not send us a letter and get featured here. Or better still, if you do have an Aston Martin DB5, bring that along instead 🙂
If you are lucky enough to own an Aston Martin DB5, check out our David Manners Group Selection of parts here.

1966 MK1 MGB GT Bargain Find

1966 MK1 MGB GT Bargain Find

One of our regular customers brought along his latest find, a green MGB GT to our shop at the David Manners Group this week to show us the progress of his restoration project. A few weeks ago, the owner who already owns a selection of restored classics came across this MGB GT with near perfect body work but with question marks over the engine.

Our customer was able to spend time giving the car a once over before deciding it was worth the investment. It does help to be mechanically minded and astute in these situations!

Once the newly acquired MGB GT was in his garage, the decision to make the purchase was proved correct as the majority of work that needed doing was mainly based around the car sitting idle for some time.

In addition, a few accessories and new seat trims were added both from our shop and ebay store and it already feels like we were in a time warp. We were particularly impressed with the original wheels. We have many MGB GT cars on our car park but rarely see original wheels that finish off the car.

We hope to keep you informed of his other restoration projects in the near future. Thanks for the pictures.

North Yorkshire Triumph Car Weekend

Earlier this year, the David Manners Group once again proudly sponsored the annual North Yorkshire Triumph Car Weekend. Despite the weather, the event now in its 28th year has seen a steady increase in numbers and support over recent times and this year has been no different.

Most if not all Triumph Car Models were represented, as can be seen by visiting the North Yorkshire Triumph Weekend Facebook Group here, if you are a Triumph enthusiast then it’s well worth taking a look at their pictures of the show.

Amongst the Triumph Cars in attendance were some rather nice examples of the Triumph Dolomite, Triumph GT6, Triumph Herald, Triumph Spitfire & Triumph TR2-Triumph TR7 models.

We look forward to sponsoring the Triumph Weekend once again next year.

Jaguar XF becomes David Manners Group Pin Up

We are seeing a lot of Jaguar XF cars at the David Manners Group this year. As we usually showcase the older Models of Jaguar, we have now decided to focus on some of the later Models that attract particular interest in the street. This Silver Jaguar XF looked delightful after a rainy morning in Birmingham with the light hitting the water marks on its silver curves.

The much obliging owner let us take a few pictures whilst he was waiting for his XF Parts to be picked, and even agreed to let us use his car to be the Pin up girl on our Jaguar XF Price list cover! Thank you very much.
