Clas­sic ren­tal for Ir­ish Pres­i­dent

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - www.jk­clas­

Lin­coln-based JK Clas­sics can count the Pres­i­dent of Ire­land as one of its first cus­tomers af­ter launch­ing its ren­tal busi­ness in time for the Easter week­end.

Michael Hig­gins drove the com­pany’s fully-re­stored 1938 Rover P2 16 Sports Saloon in Dublin as part of the city’s Easter Bank Hol­i­day celebrations.

John O’Mal­ley, owner of lo­gis­tics com­pany JK Move­ments, set up his ren­tal ven­ture af­ter build­ing his own col­lec­tion of 25 cars and restor­ing them in-house. JK Clas­sics’ man­ager Lau­rence Mo­ran says: ‘Af­ter build­ing up such a great col­lec­tion John wanted to get them out driv­ing and to start earn­ing a bit of money af­ter putting in the work to re­store them.

‘Send­ing out a ve­hi­cle to the pres­i­dent of Ire­land was built up with a bit of mys­tery. It took a few se­cre­tive emails be­fore the per­son who con­tacted us fi­nally re­vealed who the P2 was go­ing to.’
