  • Southspeed  Phone 07976222151 or 07980598287 I want to take this opportunity to recommend Jess and Justin. They market a front end package which was recently fitted to the front of one of the cars in our club, a 1932 Dooster roadster. Unfortunately, the guy who owns the car, didn't fit the re-enforcing plates that were supplied and had to take the car to Southspeed to get it sorted properly. The guys sorted the front out, made sure it was set correctly and didn't question whether they needed to do this or not. Consequently, as I have said publicly, the car handles better, looks better and stops better. If anyone in the southwest needs any rod work undertaken, they should seriously consider going to these guys, they are a credit to the hobby!. Andy
