Happy Holidays from Hyman Ltd.

Author: Hyman Ltd. Classic Cars Sunday, 24 December 2017

Happy Holidays from Hyman Ltd.The entire team at Hyman Ltd. Classic Cars would like to wish you and your family an enjoyable, safe and festive holiday season. We would like to take this opportunity to extend a personal thank you to everyone who helped to make 2017 the most successful of our 30 years in business!
 
Reflecting on our past year, we have seen several factors that have translated into this being our best on record. Demand within the classic car market is stronger than ever, yet buyers are becoming ever more sophisticated, educated and selective in their choices. Buyers recognize the importance of history and provenance, and as the popularity of road tours and rallies grows, event eligibility has become an essential factor. Now more than ever, the quality and importance of every car truly matters. Whether your interests lay in big-horsepower Brass-Era cars, coachbuilt classics, or post-war sports and GT cars, we remain committed to offering only the finest examples available.

In the past year, we have had the privilege to sell some truly spectacular automobiles; a particular highlight being the 2016 Pebble Beach Best in Show 1936 Lancia Astura Pinin Farina “Tipo Bocca” cabriolet. We had the opportunity to see a great many of you out on the road at concours, rallies, tours and events and we always look forward to seeing our friends and clients as we travel around the world.

2017 also saw us add new staff members to our team to ensure you get the best service possible. Recently, our state of the art workshop has undergone a major remodel so that every car that passes through our doors receives the finest quality care.

We at Hyman Ltd. are thrilled with our results of the past year, and we are eager to welcome 2018 with the same enthusiasm and passion that you have come to expect from our team. Our entire staff looks forward to the coming year and, as always, we are eager to serve you in any and all of your collector car needs.


Happy Holidays to All!


Sincerely,

The Hyman Ltd. Team

Author: Laurens Wednesday, 06 September 2017

I have been researching the RedeX product and Wayne Vernon Myers background for the past 12 months.
Is it possible that someone in the Post War Classic world can respond to the following questions?
Did they work for Wayne V Myers Co Ltd?
Who made the RedeX instruments?
Where was RedeX made?
Any information will be gratefully received.
