Retro & Classic Car repair in Birmingham

Retro & Classic Car repairs & Servicing in Redditch

At Lakeside Service Centre, we also cater for classic and retro cars that most garages in Redditch overlook.

We have decades of experience with carb tuning, changing points and setting spark plug gaps on cars such as Ford Escorts, Minis and VWs. It's sometimes hard to find a garage in and around Redditch that can undertake mechanical repair work and MOTs on classic and retro cars.

Because our passion is for classic and retro cars from the 60s, 70s & 90s, we can maintain your old school fords, hot hatches, retro performance cars and more.
We know how to MOT your classic and retro car and even if your car is MOT exempt, we will still welcome you for a full health check.

Cars we've worked on

We pride ourselves on keeping classic and retro cars on the road in and around Redditch and because we know how to diagnose faults and issues on cars that don't have a diagnostic port, Lakeside Service Centre can keep your classic or retro car running!

1990 Ford Fiesta RS Turbo

Fiesta RS Turbo

Full re-build

Our very own project car, this Fiesta RS turbo has had a full mechanical rebuild including engine re-bore and turbo. The bodywork has had new rear quarter panels, front panel, battery box followed by a full, glass-out re-spray.


Rover Metro GTi

1.8 VVC Engine conversion

We fitted a 1.8VVC engine and uprated gearbox to this car along with a new cambelt, water pump and head gasket. It has since had a new exhaust system followed by some welding and under sealing and refreshed suspension prior to the MOT.


Mk1 Ford Escort

Rally Car

This old school Ford Escort visits us for its annual MOT and check-up. We recently had the car on our Hoffman 3D wheel alignment ramp for a full geometry set up to ensure it performs as well as it looks on the rally stages.
