The perfect 'pick-up'

When he's not advising, Neil Sheekey of Broadgate Financial Management can be found with a grease rag and spanner in hand as he restores some pretty amazing cars back to their former glory.

We caught up with Neil to give us the lowdown...

‘Ok, so I bought my first (truck) last July with the intention of using it as my wedding car.  Unfortunately there was far too much to do and there was no way it would be ready in time. I then got to thinking that there is nothing at all available to hire that isn’t a Rolls Royce. That’s when I hatched the plan to buy a few cars with the intention of starting a wedding hire business.

I bought this 1977 Ford Granada and to my knowledge it’s the only one in the country. I then decided to increase the fleet to include:-

  • 1951 Dodge Pick-up truck
  • 1967 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow
  • 1968 Cadillac Eldorado
  • 1968 Chrysler Town and Country Station Wagon
  • 1987 Pontiac Firebird
  • 1982 Chevy Camaro

The majority of the cars were bought with work needed doing. I have never done anything with cars before, but decided at age 40 it was a great time to learn!’

And from what we can see – Neil’s certainly learning fast – well done Neil, they look amazing!!
