Brian Chant is very pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Thompson
Brian Chant is very pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Thompson as a new area representative for Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions, covering Central Southern England.
Jim is a well known figure in the world of historic motor cars. From running a vintage vehicle transportation service in his ‘early days’ and directing his own auctioneering business in the 1980’s, through to the ownership for over twenty-five years of Berkshire-based Pioneer Automobiles, Jim comes to the auction house with a life-times worth of knowledge and passion for all things motor related.
Jim cites selling a collection of motor cars on behalf of a Saudi Prince, including a Low Chassis Invicta, as amongst his career ‘highs’. His past interests have included four years as competition secretary for the Vintage Sports Car Club’s Light Car Section, organising events all over the country. When given the opportunity, Jim is also a keen cricketer; a hobby that began for Jim at Sherborne School.
With his past links to the area, Jim is delighted to be involved with Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions and his depth of knowledge in the field will certainly be an asset to the company.
Jim can be contacted on 07768 630969 or 01264 362339.
