Attack of the flying Ants

July 29, 2017

I had heard about the swarms of flying Ants this year but this was incredible, the car was almost black with the little buggers but by the time I took shelter, then got my camera, most had moved on (thank goodness as they had even got inside)

Lets not forget about George

Border Reivers Support The Edinburgh Watch Company at the world of Supercars

July 26, 2017

What do we like more than spending time around super cars? Being around watches and supercars. This weekend Edinburgh Watch Company was up at Knockhill racing circuit for the annual World of Supercars event, which was magnificent.
Knockhill are continuously hosting fantastic events for all the family and seeing the huge variety of people’s beloved cars was truly impressive. From track day kit cars, to some of the most expensive hyper cars in the world, there was something for everyone.
With everyone bringing such amazing cars, we felt that having something really special on our stand was essential.

On this particular occasion we we’re offered an absolutely timeless classic 1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A by our good friends at Border Reivers. This particular car has a truly fascinating history.

 

Being surrounded by such wonderful creations we really felt we had to bring an outstanding collection of new and used timepieces, and so as always, the best of the best were put on display for our visitors to enjoy.
As part of our display we chose to feature a very special timepiece, a limited edition Scuderia Ferrari Girrard-Peregaux, 1 of 250 which was snapped up almost immediately after our radio interview with Knockhill presenter Duncan Vincent. The new owner very much looks forward to wearing his fantastic rare timepiece.

We’d like to say a very special thank you to each and every person who stopped by our stand for a chat and a look at our collection. We had a fantastic day out and we are very much looking forward to our next motoring event.

Barn Find Frogeye sprite

July 15, 2017

One of our clients discovered this frogeye/bugeye Sprite in a barn. It now has a finished value that makes it worth restoring. Apart from the fiberglass arches and wider wheels it’s a very original matching numbers car.

Gorgeous George’s new truck

July 13, 2017

When you make a purchase from Border Reivers it will now be delivered by Gorgeous George in his new truck.

He’s named it (Abbey-Leigh) after his daughter. So when you see it on the motor way give him a toot.

Headlamp upgrade

July 13, 2017

Its always good to upgrade the headlights when you upgrade an engine. Having already converted from 6 to 12 volts & to a charging system that allows the running of halogen head lights. We carried out the pretty simple conversion from sealed beams headlamp units to halogen headlamp units, what a difference in the end result. We also removed the basket style stone guards at the same time by replacing the outer rims with nos (new old stock) items. I personally think it looks cleaner.

Testimonial

angle2 EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLAND Porsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut! Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen. Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert. Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren. Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist. Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you!

Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you! ThomasEder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
