FROM THE WORKSHOP
Stunning and unique restorations have emerged under th e leadership of Guy Black and his Retrotec engineering team. Darren Harbar discovers the firm’s exciting work and a lifetime of future projects
I’m surrounded by amazing memorabilia while sitting with Guy Black in his Retrotec office at Westfield, near Hastings, East Sussex. Notably, on the wall is a photograph of a young RAF recruit labelled ‘Pilot Officer Anthony Black’. When asked about the photo, Guy explains that it was his dad who inspired him, which in turn led to restoring and collecting aircraft.
