Garage87 was established in 2015 by Chris, fuelled by his passion for classic VW’s. Chris has grown up surrounded by Volkswagens and used to attend many shows from a young age with his family. This developed into an obsession with mechanical and engineering based hobbies which then lead to him taking an apprenticeship in mechanics at a local garage. Chris did this along side restoring a classic beetle and modifying daily water cooled cars in his spare time.
After 8 years experience working on numerous types of cars, Chris then spent a short time at a main dealer workshop and gained service technician and MOT qualifications. It then felt time to turn his enthusiasm and hard working ethic to garage87, specialising in the vehicles Chris is passionate about and passing this on to customers.
Over the years as garage87 has grown, the team has expanded to allow us to take on bigger projects. We also work with other businesses which enable us to offer a wider range of services.
Chris’ passion mainly revolves around air and water cooled Volkswagens, and in his own garage he has a variety of vehicles from stock to extremely modified, performance, patina and show stopping! All which get regular use and attend shows with his family, starting the next generation of garage87!
