Since the age of 12, Ben has been developing his knowledge of VW’s; when in 2005 he purchased his first project a 1970’s Beetle in order to get to school. Ben and Perry were also working on their panel van project. Trained as a sound engineer and professional drummer in his own band, he was then employed by Bromsgrove Auto Trimmers; where he built on his love for VW’s, with Angie and Pete. Since the business began Ben has been working there full-time building Subaru engine conversions.
