Well I am still having fun with the Porsches and have just finished restoring a 1964 Volkswagen panel van. Also we have just finished restoring the outside of the Pub building we are now located in. I have a couple of new projects on the go. A light weight 911 swb street car and another pub and barns to restore. The cycling is going well with a couple of new bikes in the stable! Italy is still my favourite playground for cycling and eating and most things! I am planning to step back from the retail business in the near future and the guys will I'm sure carry on the K.K. Flame into the future! Ciao Ritchie.

I've been into Classic cars for as long as I can remember and have owned a few ‘interesting' rides during that time! I`ve been at Karmann Konnection for over 10 years now & I am very fortunate to spend my days working with the Porsche vehicles, its my ideal job! Away from work I enjoy cycling & the gym when time allows!

My love of cars began when I first watched American Graffitti, then back in 1988, I started my working carreer at KK and witnessed the 959 BAN car being built by Ritchie. That was enough for me to fall in love with all Vws and Porsches, ever since then they have been my passion and my life. I still attend as many shows as I possibly can throughout the year. Im also into Art deco furniture, 1970s furniture and a big collector of Vinyl records. Also enjoy a beer with the boys and the odd wild night out.


Jon - Mechanic


I have been a mechanic for 25 years and am now fortunate enough to earn my living fixing vintage Volkswagens and Porsche's.

I am heavily into the VW scene and enjoy spending time with my family and getting down to the West Country as often as possible.
