Today I would like to introduce you to a good friend and ambassador of EWC. Tom Fitzsimmons (FIMI) is the owner of Border Reivers, a company Tom established following an extensive career in the motor trade and fulfilling his passion for sports cars.
Located on the shores of Loch Lomond this is the home of an outstanding collection of classic sports and race cars each hand picked by Tom based on their condition, history, investment potential and provenance.
As a small business owner myself I was very interested to learn more about Tom’s business and I was kindly invited to spend an afternoon surrounded by millions of pounds worth of dream cars, some of which I remember having as poster s on my wall as a child. While Tom has a broad range of cars it is the famous Porsche brand that lies in his heart. Having being factory trained by Porsche and spent many years running their official bodyshop Tom really knows what to look for and how to restore classic cars to their former glory.
By listening to many stories Tom told me about his cars and customers it became clear that we both share a passion for excellence and building valued long term relationships with our customers.
You will see from the Border Reivers website that there are a whole range of facilities on offer which include buying, selling, restoration and finance. If you love your cars I would encourage you to take a good look at the website as there are some great photographs, testimonials, an opportunity to get behind the company and you may even spot a few striking EWC watches kindly promoted via Tom’s weekly newsletter.
Like myself Tom really enjoys that 1:1 relationship with his customers in order to really understand how he can best assist their requirements, so if you are thinking of an acquiring a classic sports car and have an empty space in your garage awaiting something special Border Reivers is well worth a visit.
Meantime here a few snaps of Tom’s collection.
