Master Mechanic Fuzz Townshend Renews Carole Nash Contract


Classic cars are some of the most beautiful cars in the world, and motor enthusiast Fuzz Townshend has been passionate about them for years. We’re pleased to announce he’s renewed his ambassador contract with us. Fuzz is incredibly versatile, being a musician, journalist, TV presenter, mechanic and garage owner. His love of cars makes him one of the most knowledge people in the industry.


Fuzz got his start as a motor journalist by writing for Practical Classics, eventually becoming Technical Editor. In 2011, he decided to go freelance and started a classic car restoration business called Westgate Classics.


Fuzz is best known for being the co-presenter of Car SOS alongside engineering enthusiast Tim Shaw. The show airs on National Geographic and Channel 4. It focuses on Fuzz and Tim restoring classic cars from scratch across the UK and Europe. Each car owner is nominated by a relative or friend without them knowing about it because of their inability to restore the vehicle themselves. This might be due to medical or financial reasons.


Fuzz’s most recent car projects include setting up a new garage called To-Ta Classics with fellow car lover David Tassell. He’s also set up a network of classic car-friendly garages called Classic Friendly Ltd.


Outside the classic car industry, Fuzz is also a successful musician. He’s been a drummer in several bands, including General Public, Pop Will Eat Itself, Bentley Rhythm Ace and The Beat. Fuzz has also released two albums called Far In and Fuzz Townshend.


Fuzz is a regular contributor to our blog and has given his thoughts on a number of classic cars, with some of his favourites being an Aston Martin DB2/4 and Alvis Speed 100. He’s also been involved with our Mazda MX5 Eunos giveaway free prize draw*, having given his recommendation on what makes the car so spectacular.


Fuzz’s dedication to classic cars is a wonderful reminder of following what you’re passionate about. We can’t wait to see what he gets up to in 2017.
