We wrote to Penrite Oils to ask for their support with our Social Enterprise. They must have a very efficient set-up. Within 72 hours we have had a response from no other than their Managing Director and we are due to to talk soon.
PLEASE NOTE: This post is a little out of date now as I no longer sell classic car parts but seek to promote others who do. However it gives you an idea of the journey I have been on.
Having had a read of their website it appears they are a very forward thinking Company. How about this for a Mission Statement .
To partner with our customers to deliver sustainable and long term growth through our passion and commitment to excellent service, delivery and product quality
We are so excited and looking forward to speaking with them.

Above is the Penrite 1934 Frazer Nash. I wasn’t expecting to see one these down Australia. As a child I used to run around in a 1932 Fraser Nash which belonged to my school buddy Eddie Gibbs, son of Mike Gibbs who back in those days ran MGA Developments an automotive design and build company based opposite the Vauxhall Factory in Coventry. I can remember in 1984 developed a BMW with an all glass roof. If my memory serves me correctly it was called the Observer Coupe and was shown at the 1984 NEC Motor Show Birmingham.
So I’m thinking …there’s an ice breaking topic for our up and coming communication.
