Lawrence's apprenticeship with British Aerospace started in 1974, and after 4 years he progressed to Autokraft in 1978 where he developed his skills and ability while incorporating his love of AC cars. Towards the end of his 12 year employment at Autokraft, fuelled by passion and a hunger to expand his skill range, Lawrence decided he wanted to open his own workshop, specialising in the repair and restoration of historic road and race cars. In 1990, G&A Fabrications opened their roller shutter to their first job, aptly, a 1963 AC Cobra race car.
Since opening their doors, G&A Fabrications have undertaken work on some of the rarest and most beautiful cars ever to have graced the road or track and the projects have been as interesting as they are varied. From overnight rebuilds in time to make the starting grid the morning after to extensive, delicate and sympathetic restorations on some of the world's most famous and valuable cars. On the timeline below are a few examples of work that stand out to us as being exceptional and we are proud to have been involved in the heritage of such vehicles.
