As many of you will already be aware, New Elms Classic Cars and Rutherford Engineering will be moving to “new” premises at the end of October 2020.

From 1st November 2020 our workshop address will be:
New Elms Garage, Sherborne Causeway, Shaftesbury SP7 9PY

This is located on the main A30 2 miles west of Shaftesbury in the direction of Sherborne and Yeovil.

We already have a full workload for October and November but welcome fresh bookings for December and into 2021.

We very much look forward to seeing all our friends and customers at our new location, but we will be adhering strictly to COVID 19 regulations, so respectfully ask you not to “just drop in” without first making an appointment.

The A30 is a very busy fast road, so please take extra care when turning into the parking area on the east side of our new showroom.

A Brief History of New Elms

Tim and Chrissy Ayres, supported on the technical side by Darren Bunn, started New Elms in 2008.

Tim has a long, successful history in the retail motor industry, and with his wife Chrissy, launched Tim Ayres Vehicles in 1991.

Darren started his career in the motor business with “Four Elms Morgan”. He has built up an enviable knowledge and reputation with classic cars, in particular Morgans.

We have been lucky to expand our premises and our workforce with two further exceptional staff namely, David Mears, Nathan Jones.

Together we have enjoyed over twenty years of working on, competing in and dealing with Classic Cars, particularly Morgans.

In 2010 New Elms acquired Rutherford Engineering and continue to manufacture and distribute the legendary Morgan suspension and chassis modifications designed and developed by Dave Rutherford.

But the passion for Classic Cars really started in 1979 when Tim ordered his first Morgan, an Old English White Plus 8 registration MOP8X, called George…..
