Daras Rich

Based in Worthing, West Sussex. Daras is a fully trained vehicle technician with around 40 years experience of all types of car, specialising in classic cars. He is particularly passionate about classic Citroëns.

After spending many years in a small Surrey garage with an excellent reputation for quality restorations and repairs on classic and contemporary cars, Daras then moved to a Peugeot main dealership and worked his way up through the workshop, to the position of After-Sales Manager.  The next step was to a well-known Classic Citroën Specialist garage in Sussex.

In 2003 Daras decided to use his wealth of experience to set up his own business, repairing cars of all types.  Now, as the business has progressed, Daras enjoys being able to concentrate almost exclusively on repairing classic French cars and supplying parts for them on-line through the RetroSpecParts website, where he has also published various technical articles and compiled useful technical information for classic car enthusiasts.
