Dear Adrian
I would like to thank you for your superb service regarding my purchase of (Archie) Morris Minor. I took it out for a spin yesterday, and was very pleased with the car’s performance. Also I would like to mention the lad who delivered the car, he was very pleasant and extremely helpful. I would certainly have no hesitation of dealing with yourselves again, It was a pleasure.
Hope to see you again in the near future.
Regards Brian

I must apologies for not e-mailing you yesterday but time caught up with me .... as per usual ! So, many thanks for the efficient manner in which you conducted the swap of the 2 cars, also I must comment on the gentleman who came yesterday. He is efficient and courteous, rare in these times but he is perfect for the job. I hope you are successful with the Minor and it sells speedily. The only thing “missing” on the Metro would appear to be the “advertised” spare key? Do you you have it there or has it gone walkabout?
Take care and thanks again,

Hi Adrian
ive just tried to leave some well deserved comments on your testimonials page however it appears the page is no longer available and as I'm not a user of facebook or twitter I cannot sing your praises to the world. I wish to express my sincere thanks to yourself and your employees for turning out such outstanding classic vehicles whether they be on two or four wheels. You are a gentleman Adrian and in my experience of the motor trade they are seldom found. I thank you for providing me with a spectacular classic car which I can enjoy and cherish. I wish you well for the future.
Best Regards

I was delighted with the service that I received from Adrian and his team at Spinning Wheel when I recently bought a Honda CL350 from him. The bike was prepared beautifully and runs extremely well. The sale went through very easily and all was done just as I would have hoped for. I can recommend Adrian for his really high quality of service and his attention to detail.
The bike is wonderful!

Hi Adrian,
I’m delighted with it!
By 2pm yesterday it had been taxed, insured, driven, and washed. I know it’s a cliche but it really was a pleasure doing business with you. Reliant Tempest
Thank you once again.

Hello Adrian
Having taken the car for a long drive in Derbyshire I can say it’s awesome, pulls well in all gears with the engine no longer sounding like it was struggling, gear stick excellent, so many thanks for spotting these upgrades,13 years and now it’s a new car, See you later In the year for service and mot.
The formalities completed on Wednesday 26-9 I am now the proud owner of the Puch M125!
 As you know the purchase depended on taking a part-exchange which you accepted, subject to an accurate description, without trial. In fact you made an improved offer than first discussed helping me to proceed.
Although my purchase of the M125 became protracted due to some quite major unforeseen defects, I must thank you for the identification and the task of repairs which were taken to completion in a wholly responsible fashion before release from the workshop.
Culminating with delivery I was treated to Brian's friendly manner and resourcefulness to introduce me to the M125 and complete the sale formalities easily.
Again my thanks for dealing with you in a business which isn't always so trusting and fair.
All the best
Good evening Ardian,
Many, many thanks for selling me the Bantam D1 earlier today. All now home safe and sound.  Thanks to you and your wife for the hospitality, it was good to meet
with you both. I am extremley pleased with the motorcycle
kind regards

Hi Adrian
Just a quick email to thank you for the excellent work you’ve done on the Rover.  We gave a good long run back and the drive is outstanding. Far better than its ever been. Really smooth and the engine just feels remarkably responsive, much quieter too!
Thanks again.

Hi Adrian,
Pleased with Rover good as you said it was, Phil very helpful, Top marks to you and your staff.
Jim See you again  Rover P4 100
Adrian –  Austin Healey
Thanks for making the buying process such a pleasure, the aftercare advice essential. I really appreciate the efforts you went to in preparing the Austin Healy for me – it was a pleasure to drive back and continues to be a fantastic driving experience. Looking forward to the next one!

Heĺlo Adrian,
went for a ride on the Bonnie for the first time yesterday mate.. well impressed mate, rode like a dream..
cheers mate


Just to confirm that Dave dropped my car off about an hour ago - he was very helpful and I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks when you see him next.
I also wanted to say thank you for your help, time and of course my little Fiat 500 - she is now safely tucked up in my garage and all I need is some decent Classic Car Weather!
It was a pleasure to do business with you - you answered all of my questions, provided extra photos and a very honest assessment before I made the 170 mile journey to view. The car was exactly as described and I was really grateful for the fact that you allowed a test drive and offered an Independent Assessment to provide additional reassurance. All in all, a first class buying experience - honest, open and painless. Thank you.
With kind regards
Hi Adrian And Brian
Just a quick note to say thanks for the delivery of the Bultaco 250. All was in order and Brian took his time to go through the bike with me which went first kick from stone cold. I am very pleased with the bike which arrived as described - now need to just get on a ride it.
Would recommend Spinning Wheels if you need a classic.

Good afternoon. Just a quick line to say it has been a pleasure doing business with Spinning wheel classics. I have owned many classics over the year's, but dealing with your team has been by far the best. Brian was also a pleasure to deal with and very professional

Hi Adrian
May I Please Convey my special thanks to yourself and brain for allowing what I consider a privilege to purchase the sunbeam S8.from you and brain. On saying this it will be kept in pride and place in the garage. and will be the last motorcycle that I ever sell. As mentioned I would very much like to purchase another two motorcycles from you to add to my collection I always work on a gentleman’s agreement and I won’t have to view prior
Kind Regards Colin
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. It is refreshing to know that there are still companies such as yours who offer good old fashioned service to customers such as myself.
Kind Regards,
Hi Adrian,
Many thanks for your very efficient straight forward service for me during my purchase of the Daytona. I was especially pleased when on delivery today Brian took great trouble to explain the workings of the bike and the documentation. Very useful, after forty years out of the saddle! Rode the bike this afternoon and it went like a dream.
Best wishes,
Adrian, good afternoon!
Now we are solvent again, I wish you did not have a web site, it's like a wish list, the matchless is wonderful, not quite as shiny, done 700 miles so far, it gets a crowd, it's lovely to ride, easy starter, another great buy from spinning wheel, getting BSA out this weekend. Can't wait for the next one.
Will be over for a coffee soon, love my yacht, sold one so the one I wanted turned out a gift.
I know that we have been conducting business together for many years on the purchase of classic cars and motorcycles and as such have become friends. I just wanted to write a short email to recognize the time and effort that you and your team have put into preparing the BMW Z3M Coupe and the MGB LE that you delivered to me yesterday. Both vehicles presented as described and in particular the detailing carried out on the MGB exceeded my expectation.
A big thank you to you and the team.

Hi Adrian
Just had a 40 mile ride on Commando and she runs really great.
Thanks for the deal.
All the best Mark

Hello Adrian,
The bike was well delivered today (Chas Mortimer called me yesterday afternoon), it looks really great! I can't barely wait for the weekend for the first ride!
I would like to thank you once again for the support and the top notch service you provided these last weeks! Many thanks!
Kind regards,
Christian, France
Hi Adrian,
Just dropping you a line to thank you for your swift and efficient handling of the sale of my Mk2 Zephyr.
You sold it to me ten years ago and after all those years of trouble-free and enjoyable classic motoring you were the logical choice to help me when I decided that now was the time to hand it on to the next caring owner. Within a fortnight of you collecting the car from my house the money was in the bank; great service, thank you.
Mervyn (Wisbech)

I have just purchased a classic motorcycle from Adrian at Spinning Wheel.  As I live 200 miles away I agreed to buy the bike, put down a small deposit, subject to me being 100% happy with it when it arrived and I could see it "in the flesh". I was not disappointed and didn't hesitate to pay the balance. If I had not been happy the bike would be returned and my deposit refunded in full. Dealing with Adrian over the phone was an easy and pleasant experience and I knew exactly what the "deal" entailed. Delivery was spot on too and I appreciated Brian's advice upon delivery.

Hi Adrian,
Thanks for bike delivery, all good and happy
Could you possibly find out what 2 stroke oil is in the tank from previous owner
Thanks very much for selling my two cars for me. From the collection of the cars, up until the sale, I was kept informed and everything was handled in a totally professional manner. I now have experienced both buying and selling cars with you, and have been delighted on both counts. Many thanks once again.
Recently purchased a Classic Motorcycle from Spinning Wheel Classics. The bike was bought blind and I was not disappointed. Adrian was very helpful and the transaction was easy.
Would recommend Spinning Wheel Classics for your next purchase.

Hi Adrian we arrived home safely this morning and we are delighted with the car. It performed brilliantly and we averaged 33mpg. We hope your hand is getting better and even though things didn't go to plan it was a pleasure to meet and deal with you and your staff. I will send any business I can your way.
Kind regards

Dear Adrian,
Thank you for your good service, collecting and selling the Trident so quickly. The money landed in my bank account yesterday. I always keep an eye on your website, and there may be something else in future, I may either want to buy or sell.
Cheers, Laurence

Dear Adrian,
Fintail arrived in London safely

Kind regards

Hello Adrian,

Many thanks for selling the Rover P3 75 for me, the dealings I have had with you have been exemplary, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone

Hello Adrian,
Bike transported and received without a hitch. Started and ran OK but then I took it for a spin and found it wouldn't pull above 5,000. Changed plugs (Now 9's not 8's) and cleaned out the float bowls, main and pilot jets. The Main jets were quite heavily corroded but I had some more 118's so fitted them. Now pulling like a train. So much nicer to ride than my Jota with good power all the way through. Love it!
To say I am happy with the bike would be an understatement. Absolutely thrilled!
Thank you so much and do keep in touch if you ever come across something similar. I tend to concentrate on the 80's and 90's Italian Superbikes, although I do also have a 1995 Triumph Daytona Super III which is also wonderful.
Great to do business with you.
Many thanks,
Dear Adrian
Funds safely received.  The document is now posted to you.
Thank you so much for your excellent professional services. We have enjoyed working with you in this and are most grateful.
Kind regards.
Ian Morris Minor
Just to say I found your service trust worthy, reliable and true to your word. I hope the buyer of my Jaguar has many a happy hour enjoying the classic car that it is.
Hope to do business with you again in the future.

Best wishes, Karl
Hi Adrian
Thanks for the set of keys! They went to my work address so only just got them as I've been away for a week.
Been meaning to message and say very happy with the Datsun. Its in with my mechanic having a big service, but the car is in such nice condition it is more of a formality than essential work.
As I said this car will be in my family for a long time and will be cherished. I will be keeping it in original condition, as it is too good to start on a restoration, there is something very charming about a car that has survived and is still so full of character. I will be replacing and upgrading items on the mechanicals and engine and running gear as and when necessary to ensure the car runs great and may replace carpets etc like for like and will re-bolster the drivers chair but it is such a great vehicle I will mostly leave as it is.
Thank you again for pleasant trouble free transaction.
Kindest regards
With so much going on Health wise in my life at the moment I cannot tell you how appreciative I am about how you have bent over backwards to try and help me  onto 2 wheels.
Please feel free to use this as a testimonial.
With sincere best wishes
Dear Adrian
I'm sure you will be pleased to know that I got back to the Isle of Man without incident.
It has been a pleasure doing business with you. I thought the car was well described and fairly priced. Moreover, your recommissioning seems to be absolutely spot on. It starts on the button and merrily trundles along all day with a glorious V8 sound track. I began to get anxious in a long traffic queue for fear of over-heating but although the gauge inevitably rose a bit there was no drama. The brakes worked strongly and the steering was light and precise. Most importantly, my 'better half' is very impressed.

Excellent service ERIBA purchased and delivered in an immaculate condition at a good price. We were very pleased.

Dear Adrian
I hope you like the Harley.  It will make a great display piece.
I have to say that Brian who brought the bike down is a real Gem.  He spent real time and effort in explaining the workings of the bike.
In fact his knowledge and enthusiasm is so great that it was fascinating, almost like have a chat with Guy Martin.  He does great credit to Spinning Wheel.
One day, probably next year, I would love to pay you a visit and negotiate the purchase of a classic car from your good selves.   I might be leaving myself open to ridicule here, but I quite fancy an early to mid 1960s Rootes model.  Perhaps you would be kind enough to let me know when you get one.
With best regards
just a special thank you to you and your wife and the team for giving me a warm welcome and taking the time to show me around all the lovely stock you have. And without doubt I will purchase another vehicle from you when the time is right thank you once again
Hi Adrian,
Just a note thank you and your team for making the acquisition of the little Panda such a fun experience. The run home (double the distance the car has covered since May 2013) was enjoyable and uneventful, and I look forward to fun days of closer acquaintance.
I have already discovered that the car actually needs three keys to operate all the locks and ignition, leaving just one over! My past close association with Fiat UK's Press Garage should produce sufficient spares, as well as another handbook. Typically Fiat, this one covers every conceivable Panda variation, 4x4, diesel, even van etc. but no Selecta! Luckily I bought a Haynes manual years ago which deals with Selecta.
My thanks again for putting a bigger grin on my face.
Regards, Patrick R-M
I would just like to mention that Brian and Karen, who delivered the motorbike, were extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Could you thank Brian, on my behalf, for his help in dealing with all the paper work.
Regards Roger
Dear Adrian and Gail
Another wonderful buy from the stable of Spinning Wheel. The Z3 is a joy to behold and what timing for roof down motoring just as the sun started shining. You would never know it is nearly 20 years old and despite its classic potential this will be an everyday use car for us. Automatic fun fun fun in the sun sun sun!
Thanks once again Adrian it's such a great pleasure to deal with you and Gail.
Pete and Karen
Firstly I'd like to apologise for the delay in contacting you but I missed the postman yesterday and have just managed to retrieve my watch from the delivery office this afternoon! However it was worth the wait! I'm very happy with my watch and it looks great on my wrist. I'd like to thank you for being so prompt with the sending and being flexible, efficient and honest! It is indeed, a very fine timepiece. I'll keep an eye on your website in future to see if anything else takes my interest.
All the very Best,
Thanks for all your help and support. The car has driven well and is wonderful. The file makes interesting reading too. Quite an archive!
Hope your hospital visit went OK
Best Wishes
Mini One, a true delight.
Well Adrian you have done it again! The 2005 Mini One D I bought from you a few weeks ago has brought a real smile to my face because it is everything you said it would be, and then some. Like all the other cars I have had from you over the years, I bought it without as much as seeing it and, as I told you when we first spoke about the car, I had never even sat in one before, let alone driven one. As always, your description was absolutely spot on, although as usual you under-described it a bit. Both Wendy and I really enjoy driving it, and from my point of view it makes a change from some of the more classic luxury vehicles I have had from you in the past. But, of course, in my garage I also have the lovely X308 Jaguar that came from Spinning Wheel when I feel like a change!
Once again, thank you for your honesty, cheerfulness and patience. I cannot recommend Spinning Wheel highly enough.
We would like to thank you for the excellent service we have had from you. We are delighted with the Buick, It is exactly as you described it. Hope to do business with you again in the future.
Best wishes
John and Margaret
Hi Adrian
Just a quick line to thank you for selling my two cars
As you know, over the last few years we have had several dealings with yourself , both buying and selling classic cars. I must say that I have always found you very easy to deal with because of your friendly manner. We found you very fair and it goes without saying, extremely knowledgeable about classic cars, and sell excellent quality vehicles.
I would recommend Spinning Wheel to anyone either buying or selling a car, all they have to do is pick up the phone and talk to you.
Rest assured any future classic car needs I will contact you.
Tom and Christine Co. Durham
Thank you Adrian for your service and received the parts and fuel tank today. I am very happy and your service is commendable. Kind regards and will recommend you highly.
Mark Uxxx
Just  to say how sorry I am about the brakes on the zephyr, I will take this opportunity to say how much I have enjoyed dealing with yourself and spinning wheel, I will gladly recommend you to any of my friends. Dear Adrian and Gail
Once again thank you for providing a superb vehicle in the Mercedes 200t 1984. Just as described (as usual) it was delivered with your usual attention to detail.  Fantastically presented it truly represents stunning value for money and I can't wait to open her up on the open road.  I will keep on saying it till i'm blue in the face, if you ever want to own a classic vehicle with the total confidence that it's right and true just come to Spinning Wheel and you'll be well served and looked after.
Thanks again
Pete - Nottingham

Many thanks, and many thanks for the 'extra'
Much appreciated

I just wanted to say what a delight it was to meet you and purchase my Pacific Coast. It was a pleasure to deal with a true gent and someone who genuinely wants to deliver customer satisfaction. The bike is running like a dream just wish the weather would do it's bit to enhance the experience. I really must find time to call in and have a look around again but work waits for no man. I have told anyone who will listen about your establishment in the hope some of them will visit you and have a good experience as I did.
p.s. can you let me have details of the yellow avenger for Howard I sent him a pic he was drooling over it.

Hi Adrian,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the little flintlock which arrived safely today. I'm very pleased with it. It's a nice little thing which slots perfectly into my small collection.
Another great deal from the Spinning Wheel. (very poetic!)
Best regards, Robin
Hello Adrian.
Taken delivery of the Suzuki super six and what a lovely bike, runs as good as she looks, really delighted with the bike. also give my thanks to Brian who delivered the bike, arrived on time as promised. Brian brought the bike over, was here for a hour and a half going through everything to do with the bike and documentation, really went to town and explained everything to me, can't thank Him enough, he was brilliant, if you are thinking of purchasing a classic car or bike can recommend spinning wheel classics they did everything they promised to do regarding the purchase, thanks once again to Adrian and Brian.
Kind regard.  Terry.
Thanks for Report; well presented and reads well!
A note for your web-site....'very happy with the attentive service and professional support'
Maybe see you on Thursday sometime,
For what seems like a lifetime I have hung my nose over the S7 and dreamt of owning one. I knew even mentioning it you was a bit of a long shot. However due to your resourcefulness and attention to customer service I took my delivery of the "dream machine" on Friday. Anybody who wants to own a classic , whether its a car or a bike, would be very hard pushed to find a better dealer than Adrian and Gail at Spinning Wheel.

Hello Adrian,
Lovely car, 1st time I’ve been able to see clearly underneath, looks more like under 22 months old rather than 22 years, everything tight, clean & perfect, obviously flew through the MOT with no advisories and everybody at the garage I use very impressed.
Many thanks for all your kind attention. 
Kind regards

Very pleased with the Rover P6.
Its a weird colour and lumbers around like a Labrador Dog.
Happy to say I have never met a car dealer (Classic or otherwise) that is better to do business with.
Genuine cars - Nice People.
Just a quick note to let you know that my jewelry arrived safely yesterday morning. I love all the items that we ordered and i am looking forward to wearing it all. I especially wanted to thank you for the gift that you enclosed, it is as beautiful as it looked on your website.
Many thanks.
Hi Adrian
Many thanks for the bike as swiftly delivered by Brian yesterday. It was exactly as described which does make a pleasant change! Thanks once again.
Thank you Adrian for supplying me with the Orange BMW R60/7 . The bike is as described over the phone and web pics did not lie . It is reassuring to find a company that operates in a trustworthy manner and with integrity in this day and age , doing exactly what was agreed and delivering it to Cambridge on time almost to the minute.. Would recommend spinning wheel classics without a second thought Hi Adrian
Thanks for the excellent service for the purchase of the Stuart Taylor Loxflow very pleased with the car, nothing was too much trouble. Phil and Adrian fitted the car to me so i could drive in comfort, also thanks to all the family and to Gail for the coffee when it was very cold, brilliant service, thanks
regards Ray L.
Hi Adrian,
Many thanks again for the exchange of the two bikes for the 1960 Bonneville and the safe delivery by Brian, always a pleasure to do business with you best wishes to all your team.
Cheers Graham.

Hi Adrian,
Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with the Star Twin. I have made a few adjustments once I arrived home with it to improve the braking as part of the running in process and the bike is running beautifully. The bike attracts a crowd wherever I park it, from the old guy that tells me the tale of when he owned one back in the day to those less knowledgeable who just stop to look and comment on what a lovely machine it is. And to top it off, it won best 1950's bike today at the 42nd Nottinghamshire Classic Car & Bike Show at Thoresby Hall; how good is that!
Many thanks and hope to see you again soon.

Just had a chance to get out in the A30 and she is absolutely lovely to drive. Gets a lot of attention and I seem to have met neighbours that I never knew existed as everyone wants to stop and chat.
Thank You Adrian

Hi Adrian
RE WR09CWK Suzuki Hayabusa
I just wanted to say thank you for the smooth completion of the sale and the bike is as described though I am e mailing you to ask a favour.

Hi Adrian, I received a massive cheque the other day & don’t know what to do with it ?
It was from the Suzuki Tax, I had written that off not expecting anything back ?
This is just to let you know the DVLA system does work !!!!
The Crossfire is sitting on the drive looking pretty, planning to put it on the road first week in may, after our hols.
Hope all is good with you ?
Best wishes,
Almost forgot, the cheque was for £9:66 WOW !!!!!!!!
Better in my pocket than the Government Ha Ha.
Thank you for the delivery of the Masons ironstone bowl, It arrived safely,
We are very pleased
Best regards
Hi Adrian,
it was like a magic-carpet ride home, and the car shrinks around you
on country lanes.
Much as I loved the Merc, driving this straight after makes you realise how nobody does ride/handling better than Jag.
However there has been a gremlin already. The bonnet catch doesn't
work. Pulls through 90 degrees, and nothing happens. Hopefully it will be easy to fix.
I was going to take it to the garage to have the rear tyres changed
anyway. At the mo there's one Pirelli and one A.N Other on the rear
axle; I will change for two of the same A.N.Others.
Mark.  Jaguar XJ V8 3.5 Saloon
Hello Adrian and Team,
I've received the cheque for £1700 today. I am very pleased with the sale and your involvement with it - many thanks.
I will keep a regular check on your website, as always, and look forward to seeing you again,
Thank you again
Kind Regards,
Hi Adrian,
What a nice man Tim is, he got the car here safe and sound, I was just concerned about what time he would get home?
I had a good look at the Crossfire on Saturday and sorted a couple of things, as you do !!!
We have decided to register it SORN for now and maybe put it on the road after our holidays in April, maybe the beginning of May?
I trust the Suzuki didn’t disappoint you and hope it goes to a good home?
Hope to meet up with you some time?
Kev Chrysler Crossfire

Hi adrian.
At last i have my bike. My son in-law and myself went to the transport warehouse to pick it up.
Well i thought the old guys would turn there heads to see it ,but the youngsters just at the docks loved it. On the way back with it in the trailer truck drivers bus drivers all admired it.
Well i can see i will have to keep a eye on it when i do have it on the road.
Adrian thanks for your help i am glad that i found this bike, most of all i am glad it was from you.
I will have to pop in and see you, when i come over later this year July-August.
All the best.

I'd like to finally say thanks so much for getting the car ready for us in time for Christmas especially at only three days notice before hand! It was an absolute pleasure to be welcomed when first viewing the car, especially after having traveled all the way from London and discussing any concerns was an up front and refreshingly open process that alot of car dealers seem to have forgotten to do these days! One month on and I am delighted with the car and am looking forward for the weather to improve so I can treat the paintwork to a full clay bar and detail. I've also invested in some fully tailored seat covers to keep the car in the immaculate condition in which I purchased it from you. I would be happy to recommend you and the garage to anyone thinking about making a long journey like I did to view a car. It was the best choice I made after having viewed plenty of awful cars and garages closer to home. Just finally I was also wondering if the invoice/paperwork for the service items had come through from Vw yet? if you could forward those over that would be great!
Many thanks
Hi Adrian,
I just received my package today. The Princess Mary tin is just beautiful! Also the bullet pencil, card, and her picture are very unique indeed. This will make a great display here and is a great remembrance of all those who fought and gave their lives in WW1. Thank you for packing this so securely as all the items made it here safely.
Thank you again Adrian!
Happy New Year!
Bob, USA

This is just to thank you both for your hospitality today. We enjoyed our visit very much. Lovely coffee and cakes and beautiful cars. I am thrilled to bits with my pieces of vintage jewellery. Unfortunately I have almost completed my Xmas shopping or I would have purchased a few more pieces as they would make wonderful Christmas presents. Still never mind, we will certainly consider this for next year.
Look forward to seeing you again at Spinning Wheel/Vintage fairs in the very near future
Many thanks
Jean and Brian.

Hi Adrian
It was great to Meet Brian and his wife on Saturday. 
The bike is great fun although I expect to get carbonmanoxide Poisoning haha. Rides nice but I think I will run it in for 500 miles or so.
Thanks again and will keep In touch for the 1959 British bike next year although will have to butter the wife up first.
Regards to all your end.

Hello Adrian,
s you know Brian delivered the Norton this morning & I'm very pleased. She looks just as I expected (a little oily rag). Adrian, many thanks for sorting out the mag, lets hope that it has a long life, Brian has explained to me an issue with the carb, we'll see how she performs on the open road when I get a chance to get her out.
Once again thanks & thanks to Brian, his wealth of knowledge is priceless.
Kind regards

Adrian, I just wanted to say thank you for making my 4th purchase in 12 years from you so easy and enjoyable.
The professionalism and hospitality show by you and Gail is the reason I keep coming back, all I need to do now is learn to drive the new one in the way it deserves!
Once again many thanks and see you again soon.
Kind regards
Andrew  Porsche 911
As you will have been told the MG arrived safe and sound. We are Very happy with it.
We were also pleased with the smoothness of the transaction with You and the delivery with Brian.
Hope you are happy with the Fiat and the Bantam
Best Regards
Carol and Roger

Hi Adrian
Thank you for delivering the TY 250 to me today. The bike is brilliant and I'm really happy with it. Please also pass my thanks onto Brian. His customer care was first-class.
Thanks again - perhaps we will speak in the future.
With best and kind regards,
Hi Adrian
Brian arrived with the bike and all the documentation. Fantastic machine - shame about the weather. Brian was extremely helpful giving me plenty of info about the bike. Thanks again.
Just a few lines to say that the SLK 230 lives up to expectations
Hard to believe that this is car number ten from the spinning wheel
Where on earth has twenty two years gone. Anyway retirement
Next month top down blonde in the passenger seat life gets no better.
All the best mate

Good Afternoon Adrian
Whilst early days and I have not had a chance to use the bike, I would like to thank you for the smooth purchase and delivery of the 400F yesterday.
In this day and age it was great to do business with someone who was not pushy, straight forward and friendly, no wonder you have built up a solid reputation. Such a contrast to most of the dealings I have with other firms on a day to day basis.  The icing on the cake for me was the delivery by Brian. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional, he took the time to pass on many pearls of wisdom on owning a classic bike which made me feel quite comfortable. So many times deliveries seem to be a matter of “drop and run”, but Brian was a real ambassador for you. Please pass on my thanks to him.  Just need some warmer weather to give the 400F a run out.
No doubt we shall meet again as I intend to call in with my wife next time we are in your vicinity, if only for a cup of tea.
Kind regards

Thank you for delivering my two wonderful toys on Monday night. Just to let you know that I will wait until the nasty weather goes away before uncovering the BSA but its safe and warm where it is In the meanwhile I have ordered a new bulb for the horn.
I have the clock ticking away at the top of the stairs and it sounds lovely . i will give it a good wax soon and it will look really good. Once they are set up well they just sit there ticking and soon become part of the home.
Batten down the hatches over the next few days and speak soon.
Pete and Karen
Hi Adrian.
Just to let you know that i am very pleased with the aircraft clock and the T T race replica. Now i understand all the workings and settings of the clock its running great and keeping excellent time. another nice timepiece for my collection.

best regards Mike.
Hello Adrian just a line all is well, and Gail is on her way home, hope you enjoy your small gift* Sandra is very happy with the painting* and I thought Gail was very charming. Many thanks till next time. John & Sandra. Hi Adrian, Well the car arrived safely thank you very much, she's a peach. and just as you described. Hope bikes arrived ok ,Tim did say he was having trouble with his van. He did not get here till 8pm so time we off loaded and reloaded it was10pm, so we felt sorry for him and gave him a bed. what a nice man he is. Regards Mike
Hello Adrian, Hope all is well.

I wanted to let you know I finally picked up the bike today and it is now resting at home. See pic attached.
The bike went through 3 Canada Customs exams, 1 in Montreal for contraband material, 1 for VIN # check in Toronto and another for soil sample in Toronto. Lol. I couldn’t believe it! Paid a little extra for the inspection fees also.  The crate was fantastic and well done. I see no damage on the bike at first glance. I would like to Thank you again for all your efforts in making this happen. I really appreciate your trust and honesty!
All the best to you and yours! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!


Hello Adrian,
I was hoping to put virtual pen to paper before now, but, as usual,
I've been away alot.  Just to say that you've sold me a few good cars over the past few years, but this really is something else.  This is my fourth XJ-based saloon now, and easily the best. I know I'm biased, but, for the aspects about a car that matter to me, I can't think of any real progress in engineering anyone's made in the past 45 years. This becomes clear when you sit in such an example, and take it out for a drive. Aesthetically, it seems all they've learned how to make is four-wheeled domestic appliances. Even Jags ride poorly these days, at least compared with this. OK, so the modern ones might be a bit faster, but that's all hypothetical in real life. How many modern cars can lay claim to an engine with direct ascendence to a 5-time Le Mans winner?  Truly sublime, this Daimler Sovereign Series 1 4.2. Walking into my garage is now like a time warp, as if I've been transported back to Kenning's on West Street in Sheffield ca. 1973.So, you won't be seeing this one back for a long, long time!
Happy Christmas to you and your family, and all the best for 2014.

Thank you Adrian.
Good Morning Adrian, after a long drive, Clarence Irene and myself arrived home at 9pm last night.
I am delighted with the purchase of my Bianchi and will send some photos to you once I get new retro tyres fitted. The computer has already been taken off. Amazingly this is the first bike I have had that I have not had oil from head to toe on me. It is so clean!!!!
I will put it on the turbo later this afternoon and get it set to my own position.
Oddly enough, as we were travelling back up the road yesterday, I received a text from L'erocica Brittania vintage cycle event clarifying that I am indeed guaranteed entry to the event in the Peak District in June 2014. It must have been meant as I now have a suitable bike for the fun challenge!
Can I just thank you for the deal and accommodating me so much. It is appreciated very much.
Many thanks,
Hello Adrian,
Just inquiring about the the log book, do I need to do anything, or are you sending it off, I didn't seem to get the slip, for being the new owner and just got previous owner, I have got a photo copy blank page for it should I fill that out and send it off, I just don't want DVLA breathing down my neck, you know what they can be like. I have given it a little run out not far, with my dad in the side car he really enjoyed it, said it brought back memories, in fact every body that seen it thought it was great and it brought back memories of their youth we had a good three hours out, just around the town and we only broke down once, Don't worry it was only a loose wire, had use both scratching our heads though :) . I think it will need a few more short runs just to shake it down and get acquainted with its peculiar habits, (its not a bike and its not a car ) its both, the name is a giveaway I suppose. Sunday will be my brothers turn for a spin, weather permitting .Thanks Adrian for helping one of my dreams come true (a strange dream it may be ).
All the very best to you

“I bought my (mimosa yellow) 1975 Triumph Stag manual o/d from Adrian at Spinning Wheel in July this year. Adrian, you kindly stored the car for me for the best part of a month until I could take possession. The description of the car (excellent condition, solid bodywork, detailed history etc) was exactly the case and the few blemishes were honestly represented. My friend who has had his Stag for 31 years (yes 31!) and knows a thing or two about them reckons it’s a good one, as do others who know their classic cars.
Given our great summer the car has been used regularly and has now covered just short of an extra 1,000 miles (North Yorkshire is a big area!). It has performed really well throughout and is proving to be totally reliable. The only issues to date have been the need to replace a worn overdrive switch and rear light bulb and holder. Both easily sourced.
In addition to the car being exactly what I had hoped for at a very fair price, at least as important to me is the degree of service and confidence in buying that you provide to your customers. Obviously you are in business to sell cars and bikes and make a profit, but you go out of your way to help your customers and to provide a first rate service. Your reputation means that good vehicles find you and in turn you provide your customers with the reassurance that they are getting good quality products. This is especially important when buying something mechanical that is 30-40-50 years old or more!
So, to any potential buyers I can happily recommend Spinning Wheel and Adrian and his dad’s business to you. He and his team will provide you with great products and service. Just remember though that you need to do your research and be sure that you want a classic vehicle as that is your choice and yours alone. Personally, I have no regrets but then I knew what I was looking for – and I saw both trade and private Stags that failed to match the quality and price offered by Spinning Wheel. Many thanks Adrian and all the very best to you and your business.”

Dear Gail and Adrian,
Thanks for your very kind hospitality today and the lovely deal on the sticks. They already look great in my collection. I have to say it was a pleasure to visit your new shop on such a grey and miserable day. It was so very welcoming and full of lovely things. I really enjoyed my visit and I think you have it just right in terms of content and appearance and your friendly welcome adds to the ambience. Coffee and pie were great as many place I visit just don't do that. So at last a proper antique shop to visit run by enthusiastic people - well done!

Hi Adrian,

Many thanks for sorting things out, I'm Looking forward to getting the car.
I'm certain I will be seeing you in the future, maybe a TR6 or something exotic, if I can persuade the wife.
Thanks again for the good experience.
Best regards

Hello Adrian and Gail.
 Just to say thanks for your wonderful hospitality on my first visit to your set up. I was quite taken with all the bikes and though I was only "window shopping" you gave me your full attention. When the time comes and the inevitable happens with the closure at work I know where to come.
I enjoyed the lengthy chat with you over coffee and biscuits. I will be back, next time for some cake.
I have attached an old pic. from circa.1970 and a new one .
I will be looking for the old "bonnie" in the near future.

Hi Adrian,

Thanks again for the good experience.
Best regards Richard

Dear Adrian,
the bike is here :-)))
Looks very good. We were very pleased.
Thanks also for the documents.
Have a tip about certain mixture and oil ......
Is there anything else to consider?
For the next time we need to improve the delivery (faster)
Thanks again & sunny greetings
Hi Adrian,
Just a quick note of thanks for being so accommodating over weekend, and really please with the Bike, so big thanks...
Let me know if you ever get around to selling that Trials Sidecar, I've got lovely B40 I could bolt it to !!....
If you get down to Cornwall then please give us a shout !!..

Hi Adrian,
Thanks for the email, I have now had the XJS valeted and it now exceeds my pre-conceived expectations. I haven't been able to drive it more than a dozen or so miles as yet, but certainly hope to get out on the road for a decent run soon. The valet job was sorted in a couple of hours and has just made a 'silk purse' into a 'golden one'. I paid the chap for the valet but didn't bother with an invoice and am happy to bear that cost myself.
Kind regards
Dear Adrian,
The exquisite baton arrived today. SAFELY. I'm very pleased and found the entire experience (after the bank business) enjoyable and informative. If you come across another such item, inform me, please. With every good wish,
Hi Adrian.
Just a note to say thankyou for all your help with the recent purchase of my 1600E Cortina. You made everything so easy and the delivery was just as you described. I found dealing with the Spinning Wheel friendly and relaxing and your commitment to detail second to none and how purchasing a car should be conducted, I would have no hesitation in purchasing from you again. I would be certainly recommending you to any one who is in the market for a classic car.

Hi Adrian,
I have now had the bike a few weeks and am really pleased with it. It is really nice to ride and although I am used to modern bikes it does not  feel like a 38 year old bike to ride. Than you again for the buying experience as I was apprehensive about buying such an old bike but everything went very smoothly. It was good to have someone deliver the bike who was so knowledgeable.
Kind regards
Geoff B****

Hi Adrian, got back no problems - thanks for all your help yesterday :)
Just wondered if you know if she needs lead replacement treatment in the fuel, or if shes fine on unleaded??
Thanks again
Hi Adrian,
Just to let you know that the Landie made it back no problem to Nantwich - ran like a dream the whole way. Hot work on this lovely day, but great fun! The temp gauge packed up within a mile, but she never missed a beat and that was the only issue.
Many thanks for having her well prepared


I may almost be on the racing line (purely by accident). Hadn't realised how well my leathers match the bike until I saw this picture.

CRMC Snetterton race of the year meeting last weekend. Qualified and finished every race I was entered for.


Hi Adrian,
Thanks for your comments,i am so pleased you like the carriage, be sure to treat her like the old lady that she is. The little moggie is a belter, she is loved by all the family, including the dogs. On Saturday my wife and I went for a trip out in the moggie and were held up by some kids on skate boards on the road, as we passed slowly by one of them shouted "hello old lady", Kate turned to me and said "I am not sure if they're talking to me or the car", I kept my mouth tightly shut! If you ever need any help with carriage matters I will do my best to help, I do hope we can have another deal sometime in the future,
best wishes,
Hi Adrian,
Just a quick note to let you now the pistol arrived safely today, and to say that I am delighted with it.
This is a real quality piece at a sensible price and fits into my small collection perfectly. Thank you for a great item and a friendly and professional service. Long may you prosper.
Best regards, Robin.
To be honest the couple of little things have given me a great excuse to "tinker" and get my Haynes manual out!! My overall experience of buying the car has been great, I found you open and honest about the car and very straight forward to deal with. The car is exactly as described and in amazing condition given it is over 40 years old. Delivery happened as you said it would and the car arrived as planned. If I find myself in the position of looking for another old car you would probably be my first port of call. 
Regards, Ken
Just a short note to inform that the Car arrived safely in Guernsey last week. The Sun even made a surprise appearance this weekend allowing me to drive it at last - everything appears to be in ‘ship’ shape! When we first spoke I joked that I was a little sceptical about all of the great testimonials on your site but having flown over to meet you and seen the car, I can state that my skepticism was totally unfounded and I find myself joining the happy Group! Your descriptions on e mail and the telephone were very accurate and you delivered on your undertaking to fix the small issues identified in the engineer’s report which helped enormously. Thank you for your assistance in securing my first classic car purchase which has brought back many happy memories of way back when - I am looking forward to experience them again. No doubt I will be faced with large bills also but such is the price of pleasure! You never know, in time I might be back to Spinning Wheel to dip again …..
Thank you once again and best regards

Hi Adrian,
I have not been back to UK since February and am still in China until August, I just want to thank you and your Dad for the exemplary service in assisting with the log book application with regards to the Porsche Carerra 2 I purchased from you. I still check your web site on a daily basis to check what gems you have available. I also advise other guys working with me whom are interested in cars and bikes to check your site. Who knows, they may call you, you have many outstanding bikes and cars available. I see you have a Yamaha 250U for sale, I have a 250 U and a W along with my 250K, 250L and 250S. I note you advise the U has the later front forks, which is correct. the U is a special model, a lot of one year only parts on a U model. The calipers are from a later model also are also from a later model, a period modification. If you need copies of parts books I have many for Yamaha race bikes. You are welcome to any copies you need. Please, it was not my intention to critisise your advert, I think your site is great, please send my regards to your Dad, he made Maria my Wife most welcome as did yourself at the time of the purchase of the Porsche.
Thanks again, We will definately be back for more treasures.
I've owned my Alfetta GTV 2.0 about a year now and thought I'd give you a quick update.It's still running great you'll be pleased to hear and I've hardly had to do anything to it except for a few problems with the clutch last summer (now sorted). I sold the old wheels quite easily, re-fitted the original gearknob and bought a set of mats to protect the carpet but apart from that it's pretty much how it was when I bought it from you. I still love driving it and it generates quite a bit of interest from passers-by who know what it is, used to own an Alfasud, tell me not to take it out in the rain because it will rust away... ha ha etc etc. Anyway I'm still really glad I bought it, definitely a dream come true! Done about 1,800 miles in the last 12 months which isn't bad considering the awful weather last summer, including a trip to Newby Hall near Ripon for the National Alfa Day
Anyway just thought I'd let you know how we're doing; hope this is of interest to you. Best regards B V
Hi Adrian, we got the TR6 into Australia just before Christmas. All arrived safe and sound and the car flew through its inspection and safety check. All we had to do was have inertia reel seat belts fitted.

Thank you for your excellent service, the MG is superb, totally delighted, I would have not hesitation in recommending Spinning Wheel to anyone looking for a quality classic car.
Kind Regards

Hi Adrian
Just to let you know that the bayonet has arrived, amazing condition for its age.

Thought Roy might like these pictures of the old K4 taken at Cadwell last week
Definitely getting to grips with it now, looking forward to Silverstone this weekend

Kind Regards

Hi Adrian, just to let you know you have done it again!. The bike is super rides and handles like a dream. I must stop looking at your site, too many nice bikes, I think 3 is enough for now (ha-ha). Thanks for super bikes and most of all, SUPER SERVICE. Thanks mate. Best regards Mike.
hi adrian, i would like to thank you for all your help recently when i purchased my triumph stag. down to every detail every thing you told me about the car was true the stag drives great and looks even better thanks again for all your help tom p***** dublin Hello Adrian ok for all , now I want buy  in the future one Silver Shadow! . 
(Rolls Royce Silver Spirit One)
Dear Adrian,
Just a short note to thank you for the outstanding service that I have received. My recent transactions both as a buyer and seller have been absolutely faultless. Both vehicles that I have bought from you have been exactly as described, in fact I would say under described in that they were in better condition than the photographs showed. The whole process of the sale was easy , pleasant and fun , communications superb and the delivery service second to none. I would recommend you highly to anyone and will most definitely come back to Spinning Wheel for my next vehicle change. You are one of life’s true gentlemen. Thanks again . Roger N

Dear Adrian,
I always wanted a nice Triumph Tiger Cub. When I saw the one on you web-site just before Christmas I felt that it was time to go ahead. Few weeks later that lovely little 1959 Tiger Cub arrived at my home in Hamburg. I was most delighted to see that its condition is exactly as you described it to me. Let me say that I am absolutely content with the purchase and your service.
Thank you and kind regards
N.B.: The papers arrived this morning. It is great that also the original log book was still with the bike.
Hi Adrian,
just a quick note to say Robert arrived ok in his transporter with my Jaguar XJS on the back, I did note some of my neighbors came out to take an envious look at the shining green paint and bright chrome work, the car looks really fantastic. And thank goodness my wife likes it.Thanks again Adrian for your honest service I would not hesitate to tell my friends to purchase from you as I am sure I will be doing so .
Very Best Regards
Dear Sy and Adrian,
The Orange R90S arrived all ok in Australia. Bike was detailed nicely and packed well. Thank you.

Hi Adrian. Just to let you know i took the bike out today and introduced her to the mountains and lochs. she loved it we did 90 miles. traffic was heavy we saw at least 10 cars. she is lovely. and got well admired and even had her picture taken out side a coffee shop. Thanks mate she is great. Regards Mike.
Hi Adrian, got the bike ok thanks, looks real good. Hope Jamie got back safely. long drive up and back in one day. Thanks again. Best Regards mike

hi adrian,

just a little line to say thank you for the goldwing i recently purchased off you. a superb machine and a joy to ride. and a special thank you for the prompt attention to the small radiator problem that developed, and without quibble.

     i am happy to recommend you to anyone who will listen.

best regards and ride safe........................martin w

Hi Adrian

Just wanted to say many thanks for the great service I received during the purchase of my Alfa GTV.

The car looks fantastic on its new wheels and tyres that you fitted and the new rear seatbelts mean that our nine year old can travel safely in the back. In fact the whole car was beautifully presented, it's a good job it's tucked away in its garage as I can't stop looking at it!
We got the car home safely and without a hitch on Saturday and then I couldn't help but take it out on Sunday again to show it off, during which time it ran faultlessly again. I am now looking forward to many more happy miles spent behind the wheel and would not hesitate to deal with you again or recommend you to others. It was great to deal with a genuine enthusiast rather than a salesman and the extra little touches were really appreciated, such as picking us up from the train station and your efforts to get the car taxed on a Saturday afternoon. It is so rare to get that sort of good old fashioned service these days which made it all the more welcome.

Thank you for the excellent service I experienced when purchasing my MGB Roadster at the Spinning Wheel recently.
I had been searching for some time for a suitable example at the right price and had travelled considerable distances to see cars described as "rust free and immaculate" that were anything but. Calling into your dealership on an off chance, I was lucky enough to see two good examples of MGB and you spent a good half morning showing me around them. It was this aspect of care and attention to detail that really impressed. There was no hard sell. Your obvious personal enthusiasm for cars (and a whole range of other items that we chatted about) shone through. I was able to test drive unhurried and even get the vehicle up on a ramp to thoroughly look it over.
Having decided to purchase, the after sales care continued to impress. The car was delivered to my home in a covered trailer and when a minor fault was discovered you dealt with it for me swiftly and professionally. The difference between a family run business and a main dealership was plain to see. The little personal touches making all the difference.
I'm sure that most people who buy cars from a dealer would agree, that the most important things they look for are value for money and honesty and integrity from the dealer. Not only did you display those in abundance but your friendly, cheerful and patient character made the buying of my beautiful car that much better an experience.
Many many thanks,
Michael G
Dear Adrian
We have now had William for a week and we would like to let you know how pleased we are with our new addition to the family. As you know, the drive home went beautifully despite the only "sensible" option being the M1/M42 - William performed faultlessly and cruised along at 60 - 70 mph without any drama.
We would like to express our thanks for the fantastic service you gave us - everything happened like you said it would and nothing was too much trouble. You gave us a totally pain-free buying experience and we would heartily recommend you to anyone wishing to buy a classic car or motorcycle (or fire engine!). We hope that, at some point in the future, we get the opportunity to do business with you again.
Many thanks and best wishes
Bill and Debbie
PS. If you ever trip over a Gordon Keeble in your travels, I've always fancied one. Funnily enough, we got overtaken by one, on the M42, when we were driving back from you which is the first time I have ever seen one other than at a show.

Hi Adrian,
Despite picking the worst weather day possible to pick up the MZ, I’m happy to say that it didn’t miss a beat on the way back to the ferry. I’m very pleased with the bike and it certainly was ready to eat up the miles as your ad said. Thanks also for showing me the rest of your treasures, they were all superb. I’d like to have taken a few more bikes back, and some of those beautiful firearms too.
All the best for now.

Hi Adrian,
just a quick thank you for all your help and honesty purchasing a Morris pick up for my husband, as you I told you I know nothing about vans but with your help I had the confidence to go ahead and buy it as a surprise he was really pleased with the pickup and said he could not have done better. Once again thank you very much.
Hi Adrian,

 I just want to thank you for selling the MGB  Roadster for me. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I hope the new owner is a very satisfied customer.

Regards Chris H********
Hi Adrian. Just a quick note to say that the Triumph TR6 arrived today safe and sound and looks superb. Every inch a classic roadster that's been prepared and presented to your very high standards. Fantastic. Margaret and I are looking forward to some sunny days "hopefully" so we can enjoy this lovely car. Once again many thanks to you and your team.

Kind Regards

Gary & Margaret

Adrian. Where do I start?
This is the 4th car that I have purchased from you and I have never been disappointed. My most resent purchase the 1973 3500s P6 is fantastic. It is an absolute dream to drive, the condition of this 1973 P6 is brilliant and is a further testiment to your total commitment to quality. If you read this, then it is a honest statement to this fantastic company, Spinning Wheel.
If its your first purchase, then do /not hesitate to spend your money with Adrian's company. You will not regret it and more so you will really enjoy the experience.

Hi Adrian

I have at last got out in the MG and I have to say we had a great drive in her today and she drives really well. So thanks very much for your efforts in preparing the car and then delivering it to my house.

All the best

Hi Adrian,

Tickled pink (or yellow?!) with Peugeot sign. Just arrived. Thank you. Amazing cos it can be hung for a double whammy dose! Of Peugeot if required!

Temporary location!

Hi Adrian. You will be pleased to know I made it home safely. Weather was not too clever from Worcester onward but i managed to miss the worst of it. Feel a bit battered today as the Laverda is certainly not a touring bike! I had to pull in at Clay cross motorbikes as i could not get the filler cap off. It had jammed on and the nice chaps found some large mole grips. The same thing happened at every refill so eventually I ditched it for a petrol station special. Apart from that hiccup, the journey was uneventful. Bike rides well. Very stiff but planted. Rides like a 90's bike and engine needs working like you said, but this makes the bike more engaging. Nothing happening below 4 thousand and then it builds speed rather than takes off. Feels a bit like an old 900ss without the low down torque and better handling. You do have to use the gearbox, even on the motorway and top is like an overdrive. Everything appears to work even after a good soaking. Lucia (as she will be known) is truly beautiful in the flesh and we are bonding well. Can't wait for a sunny spring day.
Thanks for selling her to me.
Best wishes.Paul Torquay

Hi Adrian.

Just a quick note to say how very pleased Sandie and I are with the Rover P4 we bought off you in the Summer. I remember when I first phoned you and, almost in desperation, said I was fed up with going around looking at rubbish and wanted to visit a dealer with a stock of good quality cars. I wasn't to be disappointed. "Archie" as the P4 has been named is a delight to own and drive. Yes, I've made one or two changes to the car but these were of my own choice and were not necessary. I guess that's part of the pleasure of owning an old car; being able to improve it to one's taste. If ever we tire of Archie and decide to replace him or even decide to add to our stable we'll certainly be making Spinning Wheel Classics our first port of call.

Kindest regards
Hello Adrian,

Started Georg after a bit of a struggle yesterday.  Again today, this time it was a bit easier and took him for a short (20miles) gentle canter, as befits his (and mine) age. 
Stopped the engine and re-started a few times for the practice. Moderate improvement!  Same with putting him on his centre stand.  I'll get there eventually.
He rides very nicely, almost like a new bike and is a real credit to George and yourselves for looking after him so well. Following my experience and listening to your description of the R 50, I  would have no hesitation in recommending Spinning Wheel to anyone looking for a classic bike or car and further, would look to yourselves first, should I decide to buy another classic vehicle.
Thanks for everything (just don't forget the keys!),


Hi Adrian, just to let you know how happy I am with this lovely car. I can't understand how undervalued they are by the market. For God's sake, it's 41 years old, and it still goes, stops, corners, and is as comfortable as anything they churn out today, but with so much more charm, elegance and presence; not to mention that wicked woofle from the exhaust. Or is that no longer required or desired in an object which, on average, costs several years savings? Anyhow, despite the best efforts of H.M. Government, long may your
business continue. And please don't sell that Ascot Fawn Daimler Sovereign without letting me know first.
Cheers. Mark

Dear Adrian

I just wanted to let you know that the split screen VW pick up I purchased from you recently is performing well and giving a great deal of pleasure.It is much admired wherever it goes,  and regarded as the coolest thing ever! by my niece and two young nephews.No doubt it will be required for the Junior Proms before too long. There have been no problems to date, and I have not had so much driving fun for years.

Kind regards.
Hello Adrian 
Just as promised on purchase day, I am dropping you a note to let you know what i think of my recent new classic
 I have been lucky enough to have owned in the last ten years four Capri's and have got to be straight to the point on this one. 
This is a superb car, the best Capri I have owned.
Great deal, super history file.
why spend hours trawling the net, driving up and down the country viewing mis-described vehicles?
 Cheers Adrian.

Hello Adrian

We hope that we find you well and apologise for leaving it so long in writing to thank you once again for the excellent service and for the time and attention given to our latest purchase by both you and your father. The XJS Convertible has been well received by not only myself but also Heather who has driven it more than i have so far !!! and by Sam our nine year old cocker spaniel who is happy to sit in the back with the top down with his ears flapping in the wind as the V12 purrs its way effortlessly along. As far as we can see this model is underrated model that lasted three decades and not only great value but also a pleasure to drive. This is not the first car purchased from yourself and we know that it will not be the last. The kindness shown by your family only matches your enthusiasm to preserve the heritage of great cars and motorbikes of the past.

I look forward to popping in soon to see you, that is when i am able to
get Heather to let me have the car for an hour ???
Had the P6 for a couple of weeks now and covered around 500 miles. Have to confess to a degree of trepidation on the way up to collect it, as I was buying a 37 year old car that I had not driven. My fears proved groundless the moment I drove away from your premises; the car does, as you said, drive extremely well and I enjoyed every minute of the 240 mile drive home (except the queue for the Dartford Tunnel). You may remember saying that you thought the recorded mileage was genuine but couldn't say for sure. Quite frankly, if it has been clocked it was wound the wrong way; it drives as I would expect with half the mileage shown.  The fast idle speed turned out to be a broken return spring, and when I got home there was petrol leaking from the pump where the diaphragm had perished. Both minor problems which were easilly fixed. Neither dampened my enthusiasm for the car, and I actually quite enjoy a bit of tinkering.  I am delighted with the car, and should I decide to add further to the collection (sadly, not very likely) you will be my first port of call.
Kind regards
Andy C
Dear Adrian,
Just dropping you a line to say thanks for your excellent service, and how pleased I am with the BMW. It is better than I could have hoped for and although I had to ride home in the rain it was washed the same day.
Friday I spent cleaning and polishing and now it looks as good as ever. It really is a credit to its last owners.
Just a quick question, what oil did you use for the change and did you use a new filter? No problem if not as I will make sure I change it next time.
To be picked up from the station in a Triumph Stag was the icing on the cake, and I would be happy for this letter to be added to your increasing large list of testimonials.

Hello Adrian,

We arrived without any problem except a big traffic jam near London (4 hours in the traffic!).

The spit run very well and she's very nice!

Please find attached some pictures of the spit in Normandy home father.

hi adrian.
I'd just like to say how delighted i am with the ford pop. Hopefully we can do business again in the future
many thanks


Hi Adrian
Robert arrived here with TSM 668 at about 11.30 this morning and I must say how delighted I was with her. Everything is as you said it would be and I'm very pleased indeed. If the rain had kept off I'd have taken her for a spin, but their will be pleny of time for that!I hope HXS 577H goes to a good home!
Many thanks again.

Hello Adrian,
Having bought blind from Spinning Wheel before, I was confident that my latest purchase - an MGA Coupe - would not disappoint. In fact, it exceeds my expectations. Flawless. All I have to do now is stay supple enough to get in and out with dignity!

Hi Adrian
Just wanted to say that on Sunday my son and I travelled to a Classic Car show at Moffat - a round trip of around 65 miles - in the old girl. She never missed a beat and kept up with traffic very well indeed. In fact, she was one of the best Minors on show!
Again, I have to say I'm delighted with her!
Many thanks again

Hi Adrian,
Just wanted to say thanks a lot for your help with my purchase and loading for transporting the BSA B31: your help was much appreciated. I am grateful for your honest appraisal of the bike and for the many photos you sent me. It was a pleasure doing business with you, and I'm looking forward to some sunny days riding the B31 around Northumberland.
kind regards,

Hi Adrian just to say very pleased with the van delivered yesterday along with the hillman for Ted, as always a pleasure doing business with you and look forward to speaking in near future two excellent vehicles again thanks again Tony &Ted.
Hello Adrian
Sorry to be a bit late sending you a note, but just to let you know how delighted we are with the MGB roadster. A big thank you for all your help and sorting out any queries we have had. We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is planning to buy a classic vehicle. We are fortunate to have a company like yourselves who are not too far away, and are happy to offer any help or advice on 'good old-fashioned motoring'
All the best and thank you again from Chris and Peter

A happy customer with his Jaguar 240

Dear Adrian,
Just a few words to say thank you for arranging such an easy transaction with my recent purchase of the BMW Z3M.
Sandy and I just love this car and we do appreciate the extra care which you took  with the final preparation.
I guess that we must have been dealing with Spinning Wheel for about 8 years now and I still find it a pleasure in this day and age to be able to negotiate face to face and then secure a trustworthy deal by the shaking of hands.
We look forward to a continuation of this  for many years to come.
Best regards,
Pete and Sandy

Hello Adrian
The X1/9 arrived safe and sound late yesterday afternoon and looks very nice as described. I've driven a short distance and everything seems to work OK other than a loose connection somewhere in the radio/speakers. Also, I haven't yet worked out what the added switch between the driver's seat and the handbrake is for! Any ideas?
I hope the Peugeot is to your satisfaction. I showed Rob, the transporter, the car with the hood up and down, so he will confirm that the mechanism all works OK. I've been charging the battery recently and had to reset the clock as a result, but I hope that being disconnected hasn't affected anything else electrical.
Thanks again

Hi Adrian
Just to let you know that the MGA is living up to our expectations. Looks superb in my garage. And even better on the road. A real head turner! I'm making minor adjustments to controls and tuning as I get used to it. Any sign of the CD with all the pictures on it? And did you say you knew what colour it is?
And William! You've done a splendid job of the pictures and write up - well done! One thing that struck a chord with me was your mention of the brakes. That was one of the first things that impressed me when I bought him, and they are better now with Goodridge brake hoses. What a difference they make.
Best Regards
Hello Adrian

Glad to see that you have marked the Mercedes as sold 'cos there is no way that you are getting it back!!!
Having done nearly 1,000 miles in it we love it!!!

Hi Adrian
The 1961 Triumph T120 Bonneville I Bought from you has just arrived and I am very pleased with the bike it is exactly as you described the bike plus the photos you sent when you live 12000 miles in Perth WA you do worry but dealing with Spinning Wheel Classic Cars was a pleasure and I would definitely buy from you again thank you again.
Michael M*****
The cub was delivered to me by Brian this morning. You have a good man working for you. Thanks for the sale and your description matched the details of the cub. I will recommend you if I hear friends are looking for motors. Thanks again.

Hi Adrian
Another great deal with you again very pleased with car how nice it was to meet you too after all the deals we have had so nice to meet a genuine dealer would recommend anyone to you at spinning wheel very happy customer again
Hello Adrian,
Thank you very much for the Honda CB 750 I am very pleased with the bike it is everything you said it was and more.
Kind Regards
Hi Adrian, thank you for a well organized and swift deal. Brian & Luke were great & it all made for an enjoyable morning. If you have any problems or glitches do not hesitate to contact me & I will do my best to help. Kind regards Sean

Hi Adrian
Thought you might like this picture of  Thomas on the TY125. He loves the bike and I think you were absolutely right about a TY80 being to small for him.
I have joined him in the Taverners section with me so hopefully he can take part in the winter trials. I might even  be back in the Autumn for something bigger for myself! ( I do like that BSA ZB32 you have)
Many thanks once again for  another pleasant transaction.
Kind Regards

Hi Adrian 
Received car yesterday very pleased with looks – due to the weather not had chance to drive yet but after all the ‘deals’ we have done I know I have no need to worry -  It will be more than OK I am sure. Just one favour:  If you still have the V5C could you please copy it or better still scan it and send it to me, I would like to keep the history file going.
Best Regards From ‘A Satisfied Customer – AGAIN’

Hi Adrian
Took delivery of the bike today; absolutely as described. Very pleased that I could buy a machine from 12,000 miles away and not be disappointed.


Hi Adrian.
Many thanks for the delivery of my Suzuki T 500, it was everything you said it would be, and i think, even better than the pictures on your website.Brian who delivered the bike was so helpful and knowledgeable, and he certainly knows his stuff where motorcycles are concerned.Could not be more pleased, and i look forward to doing business with you again soon.
Many thanks. Steve.

Dear Adrian
I was told you were a company you can Trust when looking for a classic bike and I am delighted that that has been my experience. Its been good doing business with you. The bike appears as described and the issues I've raised with you have been very promptly and correctly dealt with. It should be like  that with all classic bike and car dealers but it isnt. Im happy for you to put this email on your website with a clear endorsement of Spinning Wheel. I shall look to my another bike or car from you and definitely recommend you to others.
best wishes
Happy Xmas

Hi Adrian
Just a quick note to say all seems OK with the 1300. I spent a couple of hours cleaning and it does look spot on. It relay gleams i have only run it down the road so hope all will be OK with the engine. I will let you know tomorrow hopefully dry and can give it a good run. You do seem to get some great bikes don't know how you do it . I will keep an eye on your site. If you need a reference for the 400 no problem just get in touch. Will do all i can to help out. Also big thanks to Brian hew was a star. Speak soon.

 Best regards

Dear Adrian,

just a note to say how pleased i am with my Ducati mk3 350.
After some initial niggling faults with the bike which you kindly dealt with. It is now a joy to ride and puts a smile on my face every time and gets many looks wherever i go!
Many thanks to you at Spinning Wheel who dealt with me in a professional manner and were true to their word from the offset.
Best Regards 

Richard  in Norfolk

"It was a pleasure dealing with Adrian from Spinning Wheel Cars. I felt that he priced and described the car I bought accurately and the delivery service made the entire process painless. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another car in the future from this company."
Best Regards, Richard
Adrian  - with the hope you remember the name - Jon ******* - the 'globe man'.
I've been meaning to drop you a note for ages - the Dominion globe eventually made its way to the wilds of Suffolk. Very many thanks for your help and patience - it really is a great globe, and I am attaching a picture of it, in pride of place with a few of its friends.
Thanks again - best wishes - Jon
Dear Adrian
Once again, I'm delighted with a car I have bought from you. This time it's the 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC delivered to me by Tim a few weeks ago, and it's turned out to be even better than the W126 S-class I had from you a couple of years back -- and I thought that one was good!
As ever, my latest Mercedes was just as you'd described it, only better. The bodywork is truly excellent and fully blemish-free with a quality of finish that would be the envy of anyone with a brand-new car. The chrome is all first-rate, save for two or three minute spots on one corner of the front bumper. The alloy wheels are unmarked and even the tyres are nearly new.
The interior is stunning and absolutely everything electrical works as it did when it left the factory 20 years ago. The engine is superb, as is the gearbox, and starting from cold or hot is instantaneous.
The W126 cars are said by enthusiasts to be the last of the "true" Mercedes, built up to a specification and not down to a price. However, despite this quality of engineering, many of my car's contemporaries have fallen by the wayside... but the all-round excellence of this one demonstrates that a good car will remain a good car if properly looked after.
The quality of your stock is well known by those who have bought cars and bikes from you over the years, but I really must congratulate you on the quality of this particular Mercedes, on your honesty in describing it and, as ever, the pleasantness of dealing with you.
I wouldn't dream of buying a car, especially an older one, from anyone else without first seeing it and checking it,  but I have no hesitation at all in doing so with you. I would fully recommend you to any potential purchasers who have not dealt with you before. Like your dad, who I've known since the 1960s, you're one in a million. Just like your vehicles!

Martin H******

Hi Adrian,
Many apologies for the delayed reply. Thank you very much for the photos, and I'm pleased to say the car arrived safe and well with Brian on the Friday. I'm delighted with the car.
Unfortunately, I've not been very lucky. I took it out for a run on the Sunday after delivery and had a miserable time parking it up on arrival back at my garage. Firstly it started running quite hot as I was manoeuvering it into position, I panicked a bit and managed to scrape the wing on the garage door frame as I reversed it in. As you can imagine I was quite upset - not the start I would have wanted.
The overheating may be something or nothing, but I'm getting it looked at on Monday anyway as it happens to be a personal paranoia of mine with any car. They'll also have a look at the wing damage, which actually isn't as bad as it sounded when it happened. Some scratches and the Saab badge ripped off is all really. Hopefully straightforward to remedy.
In happier news, Mum & Dad came over last Sunday and we went out for a run which was excellent. They both really love it, and it brought back loads of good memories for them.
I am of course very pleased with the service you've provided - how could I not be? You've been very straightforward, helpful and accommodating and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Having said that, I can't help have a couple of minor lingering disappointments with the car. First is the colour matching of the new paint. I didn't notice anything amiss when the car was delivered, but since seeing photos (see attached) the difference in colour is pretty striking (albeit quite light condition sensitive). Secondly, is that the reversing lights still aren't working.
But like I say, these are minor issues compared to the excellent overall condition of the car, and I'm looking forward to many years of happy classic motoring with it.
Very best regards,
Hi Adrian,
Finally found the time to sit down and drop you a thank you line about the Triumph Spitfire.
From the moment I first saw her on your web site, I thought “she” was the car for me,
however buying a car “unseen” has never been my way.
Right from the start you were able to provide me with the information I requested about the car and your “honesty” was a refreshing change to normal car dealers! Never before either has a dealer put me in contact with the previous owner to chat about the car etc.
However, having said all that, I still made the long journey from Scotland down to your garage to “check her out”
Of course, now I can say
“Why did I bother” because your description, attention to detail and knowledge about the car,  meant I was looking at exactly what  you had described and I was so proud when she rolled off the low loader at my house the following week.
All the work I had requested (optional gauges) had been done, along with the service, independent valuation and new MOT.
But once again, you went beyond the call of duty, by getting the small dent removed from the passenger door (even though we had agreed I would do it later) simply amazing!
Everywhere I drive in her, people ask “Where did you get that from?” and I am confident to pass your web site details onto them, even comments from the Triumph Sports Club have resulted in  “What a Beauty, Best looking car I have seen for ages”
I can’t thank you enough for making this purchase so easy and stress free and I really am looking forward to doing business with you again soon, although I won’t be coming in to see you next time, unless I am passing your door.
Best Regard
Ian .
Spinning Wheel did a fantastic job for us on our special day.  Adrian and the team were friendly and helpful in the run up to the day, and on the day our driver was superb.  He was well prepared (having driven the route the day before), relaxed with Charlotte and her family and all in all a very friendly yet professional.  We'd recommend Spinning Wheel to anyone wanting a top notch wedding day chauffeur service. Good morning Adrian
Early RAC Badge arrived this morning in good fettle. Ideal for the use I have for it. Many thanks. It clearly has a tale to tell and has had the odd addition, repair and re-plate but frankly it is a hundred years old and part of it's rich history.
Thanks again
Subject: BMW R50 and Triumph Bonnie
Hi Adrian
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for an excellent job you did in delivering both bikes, considering I live in the south. Both bikes lived up to my expectations and I look forward to doing business with you in the near future. Great job and thanks again.

I received 2 Weeks ago the boots and gloves.
Thank you – and they fit perfect.
Looking forward for next shopping action in your shop
Best regards. Herzliche ******

hi adrian,
just a quick email just to say thank you and it is a pleasure to do business with yourself and hope we will do more, thank you.

  regards peter

I thought I would  let you know that I have ridden the GSXR that I bought from you last month and I'm really pleased, I rode at Rockingham and the handling was awesome.              

Hello Adrian,
Well, I have had the car for 3 weeks now and she is running well, I used the car for my granddaughters wedding as you will see by the attached picture. The car has been driving very well, I use it for my daily car, and it has been to a couple of local shows. There is a small windscreen leak in heavy rain but is not to bad at the moment. I am looking for a cap cover for the winter as it lives outside to keep the weather from the windows. Thank you for the help you gave me prior to purchase.
Regards, Gerry C****
Many thanks for the excellent deal that you did for me. The 1970 Triumph Herald is lovely, great to drive and it is a real head turner. The condition is brilliant and totally original which a nice touch.I came back to you after buying my first classic MG from you last year because of the quality of your vehicles and your total commitment to service. I had not one worry about purchasing the Herald from you even without seeing it. I know that your cars are always well cared for and in great condition.
I went out on the day the car arrived and could not believe the attention that the car received, amazing. The fact that you delivered and collected from me in Scotland is part of the reason I will always come to you first for any classic car purchase.
Kind Regards
Iain M*****

Dear Adrian
I live in south west France and work commitments here meant that I could not get over to meet you or to see the BMW R100RS motorcycle that you were selling on your website. I must confess to being a bit nervous when I, initially, came to deal with you. One reads constantly of scams and dodgy practices on the web and I was aiming to spend a fair amount of money. I need not have worried - you answered all my queries promptly and kindly took and sent me extra photos of the bike to confirm a few items. In addition (and totally above and beyond the call of duty) you sorted out both the paperwork and the delivery of the bike - after keeping it for me for several months; as I had nowhere to do so - all without charge! I am a confirmed fan and would not hesitate to (and will) recommend your services to all and sundry; a gem of a discovery.

I look forward to our next trade!
Thank you so much.

We wanted a luxurious looking car for our new business La Pause Parfaite, a chauffer driven short break experience in the South Of France, in which we will be providing, picnics in the vines, sailing in the Med and wines tastings and all things wonderful. We found the answer with Adrian. He instantly knew what would suit both in budget and style.- he even installed our champagne holder for the welcome pick up at the airport, as an extra treat for forthcoming guests.
His advise was truthful and honest, and we flew into Luton, trained to Chesterfield and then did the long drive down to the lovely Languedoc. The Jag purred along beautifully, we travelled in extreme comfort with Air conditioning and CD player, and arrived home with our new acquisition. If you want to follow the meanderings of a beautiful Jag, care of Adrian, you can find out more about us and La Pause Parfaite at
Adrian, just wanted to say thank for the Vespa's they are great and for arranging all the paperwork and plates hope to do business with you again soon

Hello Adrian,
After a trip of 750 miles I arrived here in South Germany on Saturday evening, deaf but happy.I spent the night near Brussels and had no trouble at all with the car. The TVR made his way like a clockwork. Now I have to prepare it for the rigid german TUV (MOT). But I think there is not too much to do... I'm very happy with the car 
With best wishes

Thanks for doing business today it was good to deal with someone who has good old fashioned service at the forefront of their business- very rare nowadays!!.The Bike drove lovely all the way, I will be in touch ref spares and perhaps even the S Shadow- Regards, Mark

Dear Adrian

Just a note to thank you for the Bentley. We are delighted with it and I'm really glad it all went through in the end.>



Dear Adrian,

this is to say I finally put some use in the Bonnie. It always starts first kick and it is a joy to drive. I am a very proud and happy owner.
Thank you very much again for the smooth transaction and for all the kind assistance you gave me throughout it for all the crossboarder intricancies.
Although I try to resist, I am afraid I will be your customer again in the near future!

 Best wishes. Francesco

Hello Adrian,
Once again, many thanks for all your help with the Greeves, a lovely bike. You certainly proved the point that delivery could be arranged - Chesterfield to the Outer Hebrides.  Marvellous!
Kind regards,
Hi Adrian,
As promised a photo of the Triumph with smart new French Plates. Something to add to your web - another very pleased customer who cannot praise Spinning Wheel Garage enough for the high level of service. In fact I would say that you went beyond the call of duty to get the car ready and send it off to France. However many thanks and I look forward perhaps someday buying another classic from you.
All the very best Nigel
Dear Adrian,
        notifies you that the bike came right to my home.
The packaging in wooden box made by Elite Shipping was very sturdy and well made. The bike was locked so perfect.
The Green Norton 850 is very nice and I like it.
I must say I am very happy with the bikes that you've sold me.
Thank you very much.
You deserve trust.
Now I greet you cordially.

Hi Adrian,
Thank you for the delivery of Henry now re-named Harriet, I am so glad you like Milly she was special to us and I was sorry to see her go, however she was very restricted in her use as her age would"nt let her go out in the wet or dark. Henry on the other hand ( oops Harriet ) will be used much more.  Seriously though I am pleased with the Triumph, I have just ordered some door edging from Rimmers and a new set of carpets from Coverdale. That should see her to show condition. Thanks for your integrity I will look forward to doing Business with you again. Regards John and alison
Hi Adrian,
 Just a note again to any potential purchasers from the Spinning Wheel Classic car collection. once again i have purchased another classic car from Adrian which is a pleasure to drive, looks good, totally as described, thank you!
 if you are thinking of buying from the Spinning Wheel relax, enjoy the garage atmosphere, drive away in confidence as we have four times now!!
 thank you,
 ps, what will i have next time?
Just a quick note to say that the 1962 Rover P4 purchased from you the other week is a delight. I have now covered a few hundred miles and she drives superbly. Buying a car I haven't seen from a man I don't know isn't the kind of thing I do and in general advice is not to do it. However from the first tentative email to you and from phone conversations I somehow felt that you were a man I could trust and my instinct was correct. Having waited 40 years to acquire a P4 I am delighted with the one I have. On arriving at your premises to see her all polished up and under cover sent out the right message. To find half a tank of petrol in her and a new car jack was the topping, or at least I thought until, while the paperwork was being sorted out you had the exhaust on my partners car welded up so we both had a good journey home. I would not hesitate to purchase another car from you should we require one in the future.
Many thanks
Brad and Sergey

I am just back from a great 3 days away touring with the new love of my life (don`t tell my wife) my 1973 MGB GT which I purchased from you very recently.
In buying this classic from you I did something that after 57 years on this earth I thought I would never do and that is buy a car without seeing it. To say the car is everything you stated is an understatement as you did not tell me that is drives brilliantly. Brian delivered the car and went though everything on the car for me, well done Brian and thanks for patience. The condition of the car is a you stated fabulous both outside and inside. I am so glad that I chose your company to make my first classic car purchase and I can see that it will not be the last purchase from you.I would and have already recommended Spinning Wheels to many of my friends.Many thanks for a fantastic service and the fact that you delivered the car all the way to Edinburgh from Chesterfield is testament of your calibre of service.
Kind reagrds
Hello Adrian, as you promised, the Porsche 944 Owners Manual and service books duly arrived last week. Unfortunately, due to the inclement weather, I have only been out in the car once, however, I did a 50 miles round trip just before Christmas and I have to say, not only does the Porsche look superb, it drives just as well. Most people who see the car simply don’t  believe that it is original and not the subject of a multi thousand pounds restoration. I now have a list of friends ( including several ladies I am glad to say), waiting for a drive, roll on Spring!Needless to say, I am delighted with my purchase, it is very refreshing in this day and age to deal with someone who has, what are now considered old fashioned virtues such as honesty and integrity, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to purchase a Classic Car in total confidence, indeed, I will be looking for a Convertible myself from you later this year.

Thanks’ once again and Kind regards,
Hello Adrian
Sorry we didn't get chance to speak again yesterday,just to say how both of us like the little Mini and once again a pleasure to do business! Tim was very helpful and everything went off fine.
Keep in touch
Kind regards

Good Morning Adrian, just a note to say thank you for the swift deal over our purchase of the Ford Capri 2.8i we are now on our third purchase from the Spinning Wheel and what a great hobby Classic cars are, why buy modern cars when classic do not depreciate?
will look forward to our next purchase from you meanwhile best regards to you all.
Chris, Paula

Hello Adrian.
Thanks for all what You do for me.,I am very Happy with the bike,its a nice bike, Many greeting to Brian nice people. When You more classic racer mail  me.
Best Regards.
Gerhard S****, Tubbergen,Holland





I’m a fully qualified motor vehicle engineer (cars, bikes and trucks). This is the second motorcycle I have purchased from Adrian at Spinning Wheel Classics. I have been delighted with each deal and was impressed on both occasions with the quality of the bikes, professionalism, knowledge and friendliness of Adrian and his team.
If you are interested in Classic Cars or Motorcycles, then the Spinning  Wheel  website should be on your 'favourites' list as Adrian’s  stock is always very interesting and changing on a regular basis (almost daily).
Keep up the good work Adrian and thanks again for your help in purchasing the two bikes. I look forward to doing some more business with you in the future.

Graham, M.I.M.I .
Hi Adrian...........just a quick email to say how well the Capri 2.8i drove on my 300 mile journey home..it never missed a beat and turned a few heads as well...!!!! I must say Adrian i do appreciate you giving me the opportunity to purchase the car in view of the huge interest you had in the vehicle...and thank you for that..!! As mentioned if i ever am tempted to sell the Capri i will let you have it back on SOR so as hopefully you will earn some more out of it 2nd time around..cheers and all the best John

Hi Adrian

Many thanks for the way you assisted me with the recent purchase of the MGB. It is truly an excellent example of a classic car and your professional manner made it easy to decide to go ahead with the sale and know that I could trust you in the future to look after the car. I think it is important that when you are buying a classic car you have all the fact and you were clearly open and honest throughout. Your recommendations for insurance proved to be very useful and got me a brilliant deal, and arranging the delivery of the car to my home by a very nice man (Tim Hunt) completed a very special experience.

 Regards Rod

Afternoon Adrian,
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for all the help and assistance with my recent purchase it was a pleasure to deal with you and the team from the first visits when I was like a child in a toy shop looking round all the toys you and you team were always happy to chat a discuss my requirements and advise accordingly.  My boys and Father were thrilled when you quite happily dedicated all Saturday morning to letting us test drive the MG with you.  It didn’t stop there your after sales service was just as good as the pre sales service which is like a breath of fresh air in this country which is sadly lacking in customer service at times.  I run my own business we drive our success through offering great service and value and its good to see we aren’t on our own.
Thanks again.


This is just a quick note to say thank you very much for all you assistance in the purchase of my Mini.
The car drove like a dream all the way to the boat and home.  It was even better than I had anticipated it to be.
 If you ever get a MKI Mini Cooper or S give me a shout as I would have no hesitation in doing business with you in the future.

 Kind Regards


Afternoon Adrian,
Just to let you know that I have just received the V5C and MOT for the MGV8 as you promised. I would like to thank you for your exceptionally good service from the start to the finish of this transaction. It is not without some trepidation that I embarked on spending quite a sum of money on a car that I had never seen, from a man that I had never met, 300 miles away. After years of buying smart German cars from smart suited salesmen who never quite measure up to the promise, it has been a pleasure to deal with a business that delivered  just what it promised. The vehicle was delivered at the time you said, it was in the condition you said, the history file was as complete as you said, and at a fair price, I don’t think anyone can ask much more! I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone who feels a little nervous about buying “unseen” In fact I already have, so please let me know if you obtain an MGB GT V8 I have a likely purchaser.
 Best Regards

Dear Adrian,
Many thanks for the delivery of the 1936 Standard Light 10. It was good to meet Brian. He was very helpful.
The car runs well and even my wife, who thinks i am truly mad, likes it and enjoyed her first run in it.
I shouldn't call the car an 'it'. ! She is definitely feminine and we have called her Georgina!
It was indeed good to do business with you.

 All good wishes.
Richard xxxx.

Hi Adrian

 The MGC i recently bought from you is to date the "Best" classic i have owned, it looks and drives superb,I'm off to Tatton Park classic car show this weekend to display it.
Thanks again for the great service,


Hi Adrian

     Just a short note to say what a pleasure it was to do business with you from start to finish ,the bike (250ducati ) was perfect better than I had hoped thank you for your help again and hope  and wouldn’t hesitate to buy again from yourself .

      Cheers Graham.

Dear Adrian,

Just to let you know the XR3i is still going strong (see photo taken at Notts classic show 7th may). We have enjoyed runs to shows and classic racing including Cadwell, this a quick fun car on twisty B roads!. Although one of your cheaper classics you presented the car in immaculate order, you offer a friendly, down to earth honest service, after 11 months we have had no faults or problems with the escort. We would certainly buy from you again.

Thanks C and M.

Thank you for finding my dream car. The "new" one is not only my ideal colour and trim combination, but it's as near perfection as you're realistically likely to get this side of a concours example, which would cost considerably more. So, similar engine, more responsive gearbox, silent suspension, positive, play-free steering; it all adds up to driving with a smile. I've been in some newer Jags, and they can't quite match this sublime combination of whisper-quiet performance, comfort, roadholding and handling, and other marques are still nowhere near, nearl thirty years on. Why Jaguar have spent all that development money over the past years, when all they had to do was equip the engine with a 4-valve head (Walkinshaw did one), a modern ECU and injection system, give it a modern gearbox and pay more attention to corrosion resistance, is quite beyond me. So it's off back to Friuli with a smile on my face, and I'll start looking for a nice Fiat 500 for you, and some Prosecco.

Cheers. Mark.

Hello Adrian,
 Since picking up my MGB from you last week, it has lived up to all your promises and assurances about the car. I am delighted with the whole experience and so pleased to at last be driving an MGB. 
As you know being my first classic car I had my concerns about making sure I got things right and did not want to buy something unsuitable for my needs. Your help in guiding me towards the right motor was very appreciated and for that I extremely greatful. In this day and age it is rare to find a business with such a high level of integrity and honesty, especially in the motor trade. You are what all businesses should be targeting to achieve, customer and dealer satisfaction so that both sides enjoy the experience and benefit. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other potential new comers to classic cars. 
Thank you again Adrian, I will certainly be back, but it will have to be MGB again!
 Best regards

A quick email to let you know that the Rover 3500S performed impeccably all the way to Edinburgh.  I wish the same could be said for my Vectra which broke down on the A1 south of Wetherby and went home on the back of a breakdown truck!  Modern cars......
I picked up the usual little foibles that classic cars suffer from but nothing I wasn’t expecting and certainly nothing that will cause my any great concern.  Things like a flickering ‘Brake’ light which is common and probably a result of the car having the longest run it’s had for a while.  The most bizarre being the front foglight which comes on when you press the brake pedal. I suspect the other would come on too but the bulb has blown.  The fog-light wiring will be a job for me one weekend soon as when you select foglights on the switch, all the lights go out and the foglights don’t come on.
Anyway, like I said apart from that it was impeccable.  It was a pleasure doing business with you.

 Kind regards

Hi Adrian, just a few words to say thanks for the swift and pleasant way you dealt with the sale and delivery of the DRK.  I'm delighted with the little car and am pleased with the way it handles and performs.It was good to meet up with Tim and his family and have some input about the vehicles previous history, very satisfactory altogether.

     I'm a happy customer

Kind regards,    Mark

 Thank you for everything on Friday. The MGA lives up fully to my expectations (and more) and I have had a grin on my face when travelling the road to Hull and then criss-crossing the Netherlands at the week-end. I have completed 600 miles in her since Friday and she has not missed a beat. Her water temperature and oil pressure are constant. She is full of character. She built up quite a fan club on the car deck of the ferry and seems to raise a smile most places she goes. I am submitting a testimonial on your website which I hope you will find useful for publication on the site.
With thanks and kind regards,

Hector  ( Netherlands)
Hello Adrian,

 What I can honestly say with no reservations at all is: "thank you". I know it's not much but thanks for the way the trans-national purchase of the 1976 Ossa 250 cc Enduro has been arranged.
The purchase went rather quickly and so did the delivery. It was well worth it. I am absolutely delighted with it !!!

 Best Regards

Re: TS20 Tiger Cub / Spinning Wheel 
Hello Adrian, I just want to say thank you for the excellent service you have given me on the purchase of the motorcycle.The machine is absolutly gorgeous and will play an important part of the collection.I will thoroughly recommend Spinning Wheel to anyone who is looking for a high standard of machine and service.Many thanks.
Hi Adrian,
Just to let you know that we are really happy with the Spitfire. It's exactly as you said it would be and we're trying to get it out between the showers as the weather has been terrible but we have managed to put up a few miles on it and are delighted with it. Thanks again. Dave B*****
Hi many thanks for the bike delivery the bike was just as described we are extremely please and had an enjoyable chat shame were not closer could have broke out the beers and gone on for hours.
Dad cant wait to get out on it now think im gona have to chain it down and mums trying like mad to squeeze into her leather jeans ...not pretty...
thanks again

Hi Adrian
A faultless drive back to Newthorpe where she is now safely garaged. Very impressed with the overdrive for such an "old lady", very smooth indeed. No problem now with the gear changing but had to remind myself to push the brakes harder due to years of power assisted driving.
I now have the classic I've been searching for over the last 2 yrs and was very pleased to be able to draw on your experience. I feel I've been dealt with honestly and would recommend you to anyone. Above all I feel I can discuss any future maintenance issues with you where my own knowledge is lacking.
I hope you wont mind me dropping by from time to time just to see what you have in stock and a chat, if you have the time. You look good on the video and picture!
Best regards,

hello adrian,
I am very content with the "superb" motor bike. Still thank you with the boys who came to Paris. Or are you on my command for the griffith?


Hi  just to thank you and brian for the great job on the mga

best regards,  Richard

Good to see you on Saturday and to be relieved of the readies for the Mini. It's an absolute dream to drive.
Sallyann had a grin all over her face on the way home. I still recognised her though, I've seen her grin once before....Thanks again,Spen.

Hi Adrian
Just a note to say how happy I am with the BSA A65 Lightning Clubmans, it really is a stunning looking bike, its just a pity I didn’t have it earlier to enjoy the fantastic summer we had up here this year. It’s very much the case if the rest of the UK has a poor summer we have a good one!!! The bike itself after a number of runs and a few adjustments, which my brother in law has done (he is a keen biker and runs his own garage), is really starting to run well, with hardly a crack or bang at all now after you start her from cold. I thought I should to say you were a pleasure to deal with, with a very relaxed and friendly style and if my wife allows it, you will definitely be one off the first classic dealer’s that I look up for any future purchases.
Best Regards


Hi Adrian,

Just a brief note to stay in touch and mark the occasion that it is actually a year ago today (can you believe it?) that I travelled up to "Spinning Wheel" to meet you and view the Zephyr and, of course, agree its purchase.The car has given me immense pleasure of ownership and it is still exiting just to turn the key and start the engine - quite apart from the fun of driving it.  Many thanks for your help in curing the problem I encountered in the first few weeks.It has covered over 1200 miles this year and been to three shows - picking up a trophy for "best convertible" on its first outing (which was Ford Mk2 owners club).I still regularly visit your web-site to see and read with great interest about the different models you have available.Please remember me to Brian, 

Best wishes,

Mervyn **** (Wisbech)

Dear Adrian,
Just a brief note to say that the Hillman is performing brilliantly.  Once again you have supplied a car that is just what was described – a lovely, lovely motor car.
It has solved the problem I was having with my arthritic knee, I took it on a couple of runs last week
– about 30 miles the first time and around 60 the second – to visit an old friend with a real passion in cars.  He was most impressed, he drove it briefly and now he wants one as well – well actually he wants a Hillman convertible (he has seen the Marks & Spencers advert on TV and wants one for the summer).
The car drove really well on a combination of dual carriageway, main road and country lanes and
so far I am enjoying it.
I will take it to see my cousin in a week or so, she ran Minx’s for years and will, I am sure, be delighted to see one in such lovely order.
Best wishes. 
Hi Adrian.......

just to let you know after the minor breakdown , which was soon rectified, the Dommie performed superbly all the way home. I was impressed with its ride and performance...cruising happily between 50 and 70....oil tight too.. after the 220 mile run...on £20 worth of fuel... The engine has lots of torque and i suspect a SS cam maybe inside due to the lively mid to top end performance. I got plenty of looks from passing modern bikers and car drivers alike. I hope you are happy with the Datsun...and the " sidearm "......!! Look forward to collecting the Ducati in due course.....

Best wishes


Hello Adrian, 

Just a note to say thanks for your help purchasing the mini clubman. I got her home ok Saturday night and is now safely garaged. She is totally as described and i am very happy with her. As discussed on Saturday over the phone, you might keep a look out for a 2000 mini cooper or 2001 mini cooper 500 with very small miles on it, preferably green or blue, i would be interested in purchasing. You might let me know if you do.

 Thanks again, Kind Regards,

Hi Adrian,

Just to let you know that I have collected the Scitsu/Triumph from Calgary, Alberta yesterday. Minus 44 an snowstorms on 4 hour drive back home! No problems with Customs or Paperwork...well done.Adrian. I would like to give you my grateful thanks, the Scitsu is exactly as per our conversation and your website. It is very re-assuring to find a straightforward, honest  transaction nowadays, particularly when you are dealing with somebody the other side of the World. It can be a little worrying! If you wish to use this E.mail as a testimonial or put any potential customer in touch with me, please do so. It was, and I am sure will remain so, a pleasure to do business with you. The bike is beautiful, can hardly wait for Spring!

Kind Regards.John xxxxxx

Hi Adrian
Having enjoyed a good relationship with you since the early 90s, initially when I wrote about some of your fine cars from time to time in classic car magazines, I am now writing to you as a very satisfied customer. I have now bought two cars from you "over the phone", the latest one being my fabulous Mercedes-Benz 420SE, and I would cheerfully commend you to anyone, like myself, who lives a very long distance from you and therefore cannot easily inspect a proposed purchase.
The Mercedes is precisely as described by you, both on your website and in telephone conversations. In 50 years of buying cars I have only ever encountered one other specialist dealer in whom I could place such trust. This was especially significant with the 420SE because it was a model I knew very little about, and one of the most sophisticated and complifcated cars of its period, meaning that it was a car requiring particular caution when purchasing.
It is now three weeks since I drove it home to Scotland, leaving Chesterfield just an hour after seeing it for the first time, and it is everything I had hoped it would be. One or two fellow enthusiasts have commented that I must be barking mad to have committed to buying such a car without seeing it, yet I can honestly say I did so without any qualms, and would recommend the same course of action to others in the same position.
The only problem has been the non-operational air conditioning, which you know about, and which I'm sure will be rectified by having it re-gassed. I will keep you informed in this respect.
Once again, thank you for the outstanding quality of your motor cars, your total honesty, your plain-speaking (well you are a native of Derbyshire!) and your friendliness. Spinning Wheel really is a business to be proud of.
Best wishes, Martin

Hello Adrian,

Just a few lines to say thanks for yet another spot-on car. It arrived, as promised, delivered by Brian and after giving it a good "going over" I have to say I am, once again, delighted. How nice in this day of shifty "Arthur Daley" merchants to find and be able to deal with a no flim-flam, no frills and sharp suits, just honest above-board straight people like you and your company. As Brian said on his departure, you'll probably see us again in another 18 months to do another deal, but we'll pop in to say "hello" when we're in the area and I'll have no hesitation in passing on my recommendations. Please give my regards to your Mum, Dad, Brian and the rest of the crew.

Take care and keep well, Gerald and Judith.

Hi Adrian - just a quick email to thank you for the excellent and friendly service (as usual) and car! I am really pleased. As promised I enclose a couple of pics taken at the wedding fayre this weekend - where she certainly created a stir and got some bookings....

All the best for now... Geoff

Hi Adrian,

 Just to let you know that we are really happy with the Spitfire.  It's
exactly as you said it would be and we're trying to get it out between the
showers as the weather has been terrible but we have managed to put up a few
miles on it and are delighted with it.

 Thanks again, Dave Byrnes

Mr & Mrs R. ******* Southport
As you will know we have purchased 3 cars from you over the past 5 years, one classic, one near classic and one modern day vehicle.
We travel from the Lancashire / Merseyside area to deal with you because we know that we will get the best all round honest deal for all types of vehicles. Your service from arriving at your Chesterfield site is second to none and
your honesty, understanding and help make us feel we are dealing with a personal friend not a Motor Dealer. We will of course always recommend “Spinning Wheel” to all our classic car contacts which  as you know are many, especially as we organise the annual Coast to Coast Classic Car Run and I (Ronn) am a registered Clerk of the Course for the MSA (Motor Sports Association)
 Thanks again
Ronn & Elaine

Hi Adrian.
Once again a beautiful car exactly as you described, What a pleasure it is to do business with you and your colleagues, What a pleasure it was to meet your father such a nice man also Brian it must be nice for you to have such people working with you knowing that they are going to promote your business with there excellent manner when meeting customers, I have not seen my brother Ted so excited since we were children at xmas i think xmas and birthday came all at once. I hope you found the M G as described and were not dissapointed.The only fault i can see with Jaguar is that it is my brothers and not mine,My day will come and when it does i will be sure to come to you, and i would recomend that anyone thinking of purchasing a classic vehicle contact you they wont be dissapointed. Thanks again on behalf of Ted and myself  and look forward to the time when i purchase my next car from you.
Regards Tony.
Dear Adrian
 I would just like to say what a pleasure it has been to do business with you again in the last couple of days.  Over the last 15 years or so I have been backwards and forwards to Spinning Wheel and sampled a large range of your stock.  In every case the car has been as described and has not disappointed, and if there have been any small issues you have always explained them in advance of the sale.  I feel lucky to have found such a genuinely nice family business, who are interested in their customers and their families.Our recent transaction regarding the Morris Minor Convertible took place over the phone and we agreed a deal based on your description.  The car duly arrived, on time, on Monday evening and I took the opportunity to get the hood down and try it as soon as possible.  Once again the car has been as described – a lovely little car.  I will enjoy driving it – and when the time comes to change again you know I will be back at the door.
Best wishes, Alistair”
Hi Adrian,

Just to let you know we have arrived back in Ireland safe and sound. Thanks for everything I am really enjoying the car.
I may even be back to you within the year for another (I'm rapidly getting hooked on the idea of an '80's SL) !

It was a wonderfully smooth transaction thanks to your refreshingly detailed and honest description of the car.

I can honesty say that I would highly recommend you to buyers from Ireland. With the early morning flight and afternoon sailing from Holyhead we were back in Ireland for 6pm on the same day, having had the benefit of a nice cruise across north Wales to familiarise ourselves with the car.

Thanks again
Cxxxxx Hxxxxx (& dad Dxxxx)

Dear Adrian
Further to our telephone conversation, we must record our delight and pleasure with regard to the Mini Traveller.  Firstly, your delivery driver, Brian, was most charming and helpful and a great ambassador for you and your company and explained in great detail all the things and replacement parts that were done to the car.  The car itself, which we haven't yet driven but have no reason to believe that it will not be to our expectations, is delightful and everything that you said it was - the condition report, the paintwork, the interior, the brightwork, the upholstery and general fabric of the car, not to mention the video, can only be described as first class.  We feel the Mini we received is just as excellent as the Mini we parted with and, considering they are some 30 years apart in age, this says a lot for the way you described the Traveller.  We are both delighted and looking forward to taking it to Poole Quay Mini Night next Friday and a Classic Car Show the same weekend.  Should you have any doubting Thomases buying a car on the same basis as ourselves then show them this e-mail to put their minds at rest.
From two very satisfied customers
Kindest Regards
Jxxx and Kxxx


I want to say thanks to you for all your honesty, kindness, help and friendship when we were dealing with you for our two cars the Austin 1300 GT and the Riley 1.5, which we are now enjoying very much.  Your standard of business is very high and it is always service with a smile, which is very encouraging to your customers.As we are now good friends, I would certainly have no hesitation in dealing with you again, and I look forward to doing so again in the future, and I will recommend you to all my colleagues in the old vehicle movement in Northern Ireland, and try to get you more customers and sales.Thanks again for all your assistance which was much appreciated by us both.

Best Wishes and Regards and every success to you and your business in the future.

Hello Adrian,
Sorry to have taken longer to contact you than I intended, am spending every spare minute looking for excuses to go out in ' matilda'!  I have to say the whole experience of buying a classic car from you was simplicity itself - despite not being able to see her being up here in Edinburgh.  Having never done anything like that before I was quite nervous making the initial contact.  After speaking to you for only a few minutes it was clear that everything about the way you conduct your business was completely transparent and extremely professional.  I instantly felt at ease and trusted you.  Nothing was too much trouble, from sending numerous photos from all angles, detailed history that showed complete knowledge of previous owners, not to mention your passion for the car being infectious!  On top of all of that you and Brian organised the delivery of 'matilda' all the way to Scotland in the most horrendous weather.  You stated that if she was not as described you would take her back as  I hadnt seen her prior to delivery.  True to form Brian did not leave until he was sure we were completely happy with every aspect of the car.  Suffice to say she was even more beautiful than described - everyone should have one and I couldnt recommend you highly enough to everyone who has admired her.  Thank you for making a dream come true!
Kindest regards, laurie
