    Hi everyone,

    I trust you're all well.
    Haven't been on here for so long, thought it was about time to post some update pics etc for the Land family.

    I hope everyone and their families have come out of Covid unscathed

    My dealership has it's 1 year anniversary coming up, and it's been quite a ride with lots learned, plenty of great vehicles and just generally farting about with the machines we on here all love.

    Some pics first and foremost...//cloud.tapatalk.com/s/61d9304dbef26/VID_56950713_114541_832.mp4 SmartSelect_20220107-154236_Google.jpg SmartSelect_20220107-154220_Google.jpg SmartSelect_20220107-154146_Google.jpg //cloud.tapatalk.com/s/61d930abb5c76/2ab5e0e92c3f85bb6006da38b0f22bcd.mp4 IMG_20211225_101101_480.jpg

    Thanks @neemz appreciate it.
    Please do follow on Instagram to keep up to date, that's my main social media channel.

    Its retroclassicautomotive

    Yes it's coming up to 1 year since we openend now qnd I've learnt lots and continue to be schooled

    I need to speak to TheCO about getting some Land affiliations set up with discounts for members and badges for my website, as tbh my engagement with the Land of old, and this forum, has a lot to do with my journey.

    I really need to do a post at some point setting it all out - will try to find the time asap.

    Hope you're well mate.

    Kind regards,

    Yasser

    I remember your username from back in the day, as a mega e39 fan myself I could never forget.

    I am sorry to say I am not an Instagram user or I would follow you on there. Strong social profiles are key it seems for all specialist dealerships for engagement, sales etc. Two very good friends of mine run AT Performance https://www.atpcars.co.uk and started that up a few years ago. I'm always amazed at their growth and love to see someone going out on their own and making a success of themselves so I wish you the very best.

    Thanks gents, appreciate the feedback. It hasn't been easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is I suppose.

    Dealing with cars has never felt like work

    I’ll echo what the other guys have said - congrats on building the business. Looks a very professional outfit, all credit to you.

    Out of interest, what did you do previously? Have you always worked with cars?

    Thanks Duncan, hope you and yours are well my friend. What are you driving nowadays? Last I saw you were driving a Macan.

    Before starting the business I trained as a lawyer in Central London, and then worked for a well known non departmental public body investigating the police, HMRC and UKBA among other agencies.

    Currently Im consulting for major investigations, with Retro Classic as a business born out of my passion for vehicles of this era. Also involved in some other businesses.

    Please follow my Instagram page 'retroclassicautomotive' - for my most up to date content

    Some interesting cars I've been bringing back to life recently. The E60 is a VERY rare colour and apparently the only one in Europe in this shade.... any guesses?

    The W124 limo is part of my private collection, and so much fun to drive (and be driven in).
