It certainly is show time and at this time of year it is if you are a proud owner of a gleaming clean classic car. Not a single weekend passes by without a local or national event, Cars ‘n Coffee or a club meeting. We know that we are as reliable as a Swiss watch but there are a lot of real life humans in OTTO too and if one common denominator was to prevail across the business, all of our branches then it would be our car based hobbies, pastimes or passions.
Whether your thing is to go and race your classic within an inch of its (or your own) life or to very occasionally bring out the concours d’elegance sure thing and reluctantly allow the unwashed masses flirt with your thing of beauty for an afternoon, we probably have service parts for your pride and joy on the shelf or at least access to them! If there is one thing we do aside from insisting on quality it is range . Our range of parts is vast and covers models back a couple of decades into the last century. Regular service parts are what we do, everyday shipping tons of product to the motor trade and hobbyist alike. We get all sorts of requests and to serve you in the way you have become accustomed we carry a huge range.
Air filter for your 1970 Mercedes 220? On the shelf, come and collect it or just ask and we’ll have it to you next day!
How about rear brake disk rotors for your Porsche 911 SC? So it was built in 1979, a whole 35 years before next week’s show but hey, we have them, they’re in stock and yes, come and collect or push the button and we’ll get them to you quick smart!
This is what we do and those who rely on us really don’t know how they would get by otherwise. It doesn’t really matter if your’re looking for a front wheel bearing for an air cooled Type 1 VW, a rear wheel bearing for a Type 17 Gti or a control arm for your Audi 80, like I say, it’s what we do!
We had a great time last year at the Terenure show where we exhibited two of our BMW “M” cars, one a four-door E36 M3, the one to have if you ask us and something of a rarity on Irish plates, an E34 M5, the ultimate wolf in a sheep’s frock! We also had our Land Rover Defender on show, a full nut and bolt restoration yielding an effectively brand new Landy. Keep an eye out for us during the season and don’t feel shy about asking for classic car parts. Like I said, it’s what we do!
For the record the parts I mention above are in stock today, July 18th 2016 but there is nothing unusual about that!
