A BROMSGROVE engine workshop has shot to fame following its numerous appearances on vehicle restoration show, Car SOS.

MJA Automotive Engineering on Station Street has worked with the well-loved show for the last three years.

The family business, which once started as a hobby ten years ago has grown into a regular feature on the programme.

Jane Adams who owns the business with husband Martin said the collaboration all began with a conversation in 2018.

“Martin met Fuzz, one of the presenters at Car SOS at The Chateau Impney in 2018,” said Jane.

“Fuzz was there with his company Classic Oils for The Chateau Impney Hill Climb event.

“After that conversation, the ball started rolling and now we fix engines for the show.”

Car SOS is presented by Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend who work with a specialist car restoration team to help bring classic cars back to life, unbeknownst to the car owner.

Jane added: “The engines usually come to us in a state, and we put them back in working order.

“Tim and Fuzz are both genuinely nice guys and are very down to earth.

“Tim has even been around our house.

“In a recent series the Car SOS team have done some filming in our house to give some background to who we are.”

Martin Adams formed the business in 2007 which specialises in engine reconditioning, performance engines and general engine machining.

Jane continued: “Martin started it off as a hobby years ago and now it has just grown from there.”

Martin and Jane’s son Andrew and son in law Aaron are next in line to take over the business once the couple retire.

Car SOS, which is currently in its tenth season, is aired on National Geographic and repeated on More4.
