I am Andy Lockwood, and along with my wife Joy we initially put together a site called Classic Vehicle Data as a means of making information on classic vehicles available to vehicle owners and restorers. It started when my Dad died and left us a collection of information in the form of books, notes and data sheets he had saved during his life in the motor and agricultural engineering business, read more about him on Skeff’s pages.
Over the last 12 years we have been offered a large quantity of Motor Trader data sheets and other manuals which we started to sell to help pay the site costs.
As well as the books and information my Dad left us the proud owners of seven classic vehicles in various states of repair, lots of spares and tools, and after spending a lot of my spare time working alongside him, he left me with a lot of useful know how.
Having Mum to care for following Dad’s death we did not really do much with the vehicles other than sell the three that were complete and driving in order to cover outstanding bills.
Two years ago with a moderate works pension becoming available I left the Steel industry where I had spent 39 years in engineering and made a start at sorting out the old garage and remaining vehicles, with view to gradually restoring them to a stage where some of them can be sold to supplement our income, and allow us to get round a few shows etc.
It is now clear that we also have quite a lot of unused old stock and second hand spares which we want to make available at moderate price, so we plan to extend this site to form a sort of on line Autojumble to include Old Tools, Spares, Consumables etc as well as the books and service data.
Over the years we have gained a lot of varied skills and are now looking to take on some work to help others with their projects, this is not limited to vehicles, we are also keen to help charity’s and carry out some work at a cost covering only rate.
