After 30 Years as a civil engineer, in construction. He retired to take on the Speed shop full time. In 2005 Perry took on his first VW Project with his son Ben. They brought a panel van from Rick of Schofields and stripped it to bear metal, then began buying parts and re-building it to show and shine standard. During the project build, Perry started producing parts for his Subaru conversion and has been reviewing these and making improvements every year to date; to ensure they remain the best on the market.
