About James Ewing

Cars are my passion in my business and private life. I run James Ewing Limited - International Brokers of Collectors Cars and I also have a successful restoration business. I navigate on classic rallies in the UK and europe and in my time have competed in many types of motorsport. At home we have an interesting collection of micro/mini cars, a 1958 Renault 4cv, 1962 Fiat 600d Multipla and a 1967 Subaru 360. All in all I spend most of my time 'dickingaroundwitholdcars'

An amazing day with some winter wonderland scenery. They really had an awful LOT of snow recently! The day went respectably well with some interesting regularities, an ice test and a very enjoyable navigation section. Great fun in sunny Austria … Continue reading
