John started out working for Holton’s in Old Stratford from the age of 17. He then left Holton’s when they closed and decided to work for himself as a mobile mechanic, doing general repairs and services out of the back of a mini van for about 12 months.  

His work was then done from a lock up which, as he became busier, needed expansion. He then moved into a 2 bay garage on Mill Lane, Stony Stratford where he took on one of the apprentices from Holton’s. They were there for 9 years and grew the business up. Mrs Spademan would also help with driving and delivering vehicles.


The business then moved into its current location on Vicarage Road, Stony Stratford and has been here for over 16 years. 

The business expanded and they started doing MOT, services and general repairs. John would also work on the restoration and maintenance of classic vehicles and vintage Rolls-Royce’s. He has rebuilt many classic cars from MG’s to Rolls Royces from bare shells to finished classic vehicles. 

We now have 5 employees with over 100 years’ combined knowledge in the motor trade. 

John still works on many classic cars and continues to restore and maintain them. We also look after vintage vehicles that are still used for weddings and special occasions.
