December Newsletter


I can't quite believe that Christmas is nearly upon us (where's the year gone?) and hence it's time for the last newsletter of 2018.

At this time of the year, a key part of our business is restoration work with owners taking advantage of our cheaper winter labour rates to carry out major works. Also, it's a natural time of the year to take a car off the road and carry out extensive works in preparation for the spring or summer 'driving season'. This newsletter has details on work we're doing to a Lotus Elan +2 and a Morgan +8.

As we normally do, we'll close for the whole of the Christmas and New Year period and let the team recharge batteries and fully enjoy the Christmas break with family and friends. We'll close as of 4pm on Saturday 22nd December and re-open 8am on Wednesday 2nd January.

I hope you enjoy this newsletter and a big thank you for your support and interest in us over this last year. And may I wish you an excellent Christmas and New Year!

£2 million Lotus...?

An interesting article appeared in Autocar earlier this month. News of a project by Lotus to build a £2 million electric 'hypercar'...

Understandably, the project is shrouded in secrecy, but a concept is set to be revealed next year. This is yet more sign of the ambitions that new owners Geely have for Lotus, and the investment they're prepared to put into the company to place it firmly at the cutting edge of performance cars.

Great offer on 110 Year Anniversary Morgans

As mentioned in our last newsletter, Morgan currently have a very attractive offer on their 110th Anniversary Models to be built in the coming year.

This offer allows some of Morgan's most popular performance and styling upgrades to be included at no additional cost and could mean potential savings of:

  • £3,300 on the 3 Wheeler
  • £8,500 on the Plus 4
  • £8,000 on the Roadster

However, this rather generous offer will only apply to cars ordered by 31st January for production any time in 2019. For any cars ordered after 31st January, the options revert to their normal price.

Lotus Elan +2 restoration

Prices of classic Lotus have increased rather rather nicely over the last few years. As a result, owners are deciding they're well worth restoring and we're taking on ever increasing amounts of restoration type work for these fabulous cars.

A project we have just started working on is a Lotus Elan +2. It's a very original car, but has been off the road since 1992 and lots of work and TLC is needed!

We've set up a website page to keep track of this car through it's restoration process. So if you'd like to keep tabs on what we're up to, please click on:

Elan +2 Restoration

The first stage in the process was to strip out the complete car so we can properly assess what can be refurbished, what needs replacing and what is fine to leave well alone. The interior has now been completely gutted, the body removed from the chassis, a full inspection carried out and a very long list(!) compiled of work required and parts needed.

Morgan renovation

We're currently part way through some major renovation work on a 1987 Morgan +8 which will look super when finished.

The interior will be completely stripped out and then fully retrimmed with the worn and tired looking stone leather being replaced with Muirhead black leather. As part of this process, the seats will be fitted with heater elements and converted to a sports style with greater side support. New black carpets will also be installed.

Other works include: a full service; brake overhaul; fitting a harness bar; attending to a myriad of minor but annoying electrical problems; converting the reverse lights to much more elegant and brighter LED combination reverse/fog lights; fitting a mesh grill and a few other cosmetic enhancements.

The main challenge now is time, as our goal is to finish this project for our customer before the Christmas break. There's still plenty to do, but we're currently on schedule!

Project Mini

If you fancy taking on a restoration project for your garage at home, Steve, one of our Technicians, has his classic Mini project which he's regretfully decided to sell. Basically he hasn't the time to see it through to completion (he tells me we're working him too hard!).

The car is missing an engine, but most other parts are there and Steve's looking for offers in excess of £800. If you'd like to find out more, then please contact him on 07727 701616 or email

This would be a private sale, dealing with Steve direct, and this newsletter is just giving him a bit of free advertising - we think he's worth it - rather than it being a purchase through Allon White Sports Cars.

Workshop winter offer

As mentioned in last month's newsletter, if you're thinking of having work done to your Lotus or Morgan over the winter months, be it upgrade work, restoration type work or just routine servicing, then now could be a good time to get in touch...

From now until the 1st March we're running a winter offer in our main service workshop. This allows 20% off our normal labour prices as well as discounted rates on MOTs. So some useful savings!

To find out more, or talk through possible work to your car, please call Michael or Julie on 01234 750205 or email

(Please note that this offer only applies to our main service workshop and not our coach trimming workshop)

Breakfast Club

Our very successful Breakfast Clubs have been running for over 6 years. They take place on the first Saturday of the month, starting at 9:30am with bacon rolls and hot drinks, followed by a motoring themed talk or workshop

For our next breakfast club on Saturday 5th January, we won't have a theme as such. But instead we'll be firing up the BBQ and providing our normal bacon rolls along with hot drinks and cakes. So just a good excuse for a drive out and social catch up with like minded car enthusiasts.

All are welcome to our Breakfast Clubs - no need to book, but just turn up on the day. Or for more information, visit our website by clicking on Breakfast Club
