From pre-purchase inspection of a used 2005 Lotus Elise, Bill has been my mentor and mechanic. From valued information, normal service, performance modifications, and major bodywork after a track mishap, Bill has completed it all with high quality, detailed workmanship and a fair and reasonable cost. I can wholeheartedly recommend his services.


My wife and I bought a house not to far from Bill about 8 years ago. I was shocked and amazed, and also feeling a little bit lucky, to discover a mechanic of Bill's aptitude in the area after we settled in. At the time my 1964 Austin Healey (currently in the photo album) was in fair original condition having been in my family since it was brand new. My grandfather bought it new in Atlanta in 1964. He sold it to my dad for $1 shortly thereafter. My dad gave it to me when I was about 25 years old. My wife and I decided that we wanted to restore it for our now 5 year old son and there was clearly no better candidate for the work than Bill. The amount of effort, attention to detail and love that he put into restoring this car to perfection is unparalleled. I really couldn't be happier with it and it has become a reliable treasure. I currently have the car in California and get to drive it regularly. Everywhere it goes, people come up to admire it. The pant still looks wet. I would not hesitate to recommend Bill to anyone considering undertaking a project like this, or any other level of work you might require on your British car, Lotus or Caterham.

I first met Bill Thomas in 2006 following a recommendation from Richard Miller of the MG Driver's Club.I was in the process of restoring a 1955 MGTF 1500 and Bill's expertise, support and work product during this endeavor proved invaluable. Bill is extremely professional, fair priced, knowledgeable and goes out of his way to support his customers. He is currently assisting with some "issues" with my TR3B. I value his opinions and his experience. I would recommend WTR to everyone.

I’d had some issues with a previous mechanic that left me with my 1964 Triumph TR4 not running and with what turned out to be some serious issues with the transmission caused by the same guy. I got in touch with Bill, had my car shipped across to him and he had diagnosed the running issue within 15 minutes of the car arriving. He went on to speedily fix the transmission and I was up and running again. The car is running great now and I cannot recommend Bill enough.

I met Bill his first year in business. The timing was perfect, as my TR-6 had come back from a local shop with the initial problem still not repaired. Bill fixed the problem along with several other issues previously not diagnosed. A few years later, a 1974 MGB-GT landed in our garage. Bill also did a complete service on our 1974 MGB-GT, coordinated painting, did all of the chrome work and interior. I still marvel at his very detailed itemization on his repair orders. He treats every customer car like his own which is a rare trait in automotive service today!

What a blessing to find Bill. He is a superb, efficient, honest technician. He cares for 3 of my cars, a 2005 Lotus Elise, a 1962 MG Midget, and a 1964 Type 14 Lotus Elite. The local Lotus dealer had mishandled the installation of the super charger on the Elise, which caused rather dangerous oil leaks.They never could resolve the problem. Bill diagnosed and quickly rectified the problem.

The Lotus dealer had also been caring for the MG Midget, and had caused multiple problems with the car. Their latest expensive blunder was to replace the entire braking system and then returned the car with the rear shocks literally falling off the car!!! Bill diagnosed and fixed this situation among other problems and now the car is fun to drive again and has never run better....even than when my Father bought it 49 years ago.

From a quick tour of his work shop it was easy see his meticulous approach to all the jobs he had in progress and from the condition of his own classics he’s capable of excellent results. The next time a problem arose with one of our cars we took it to Bill. We were thrilled with his work, the attention to detail, the job done right and all for a fair price. We rely on Bill’s way of caring about our cars and the passion for what he does convinced me.

    Bill is honest; meticulous; and an outstanding technician. My wife likes him because his shop is cleaner than our family room. Great to have a friend in the business.

    I met Bill three years ago through a friend who is also one of his customers. I had some very bad experiences with two other shops and had my doubts about another one. All I can say is THANK YOU BILL for taking care of my problems on the TR3 and for reducing my stress level!!! Jim (black '61 TR3A)
