CLASSIC CAR SERVICE REPAIR AND RESTORATION
BY ENTHUSIASTS FOR ENTHUSIASTS
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL
SPORT80 was founded in 2015 by Mitch Pashavair and Steve Harrington
who after a lifetime working as passionate classic car mechanics decided to
offer their services to other car enthusiasts with high quality detailed work.
I have restored and driven classic cars as daily drivers all my life and use my experience to
build cars which are totally reliable and are quite happy sitting in 20 mile traffic jams on the M25
driving across Europe or used in Central London for daily work commutes.
My teenage years were spent scanning THE LOOT paper and buying rusty classics from all over London
dragging them out of gardens driveways and lockups where they had languished for decades untouched and
getting them home to restore.
Freeing seized brake calipers and draining stinking Tango coloured stale fuel became routine as did searching for
and finding rust or bodged repairs which was cut out and welded with hand beaten repair sections - a student
budget did not allow for new panels which more often than not did not exist.
As my parents driveway and entire garden slowly became filled with classics in varying states of repair (and decay)
and any spare space in the house was stuffed with carbs lights and assorted engine parts it became obvious this was
an obsession and looking through shoeboxes of old photos makes we wish I had kept them all.
The thrill of restoring and repairing classic cars remains a romantic mix of nostalgia and time travel and any
vehicles left in our care will be looked after fastidiously and repaired to the highest standards.
The devil really is in the detail.
