My name is James Geddes; I have passion for Tractions that has been with me for 30 years.

After attending engineering college, I worked in the Garage Industry for 39 years, first for our family business and then for a Fast Fit Centre as a Fitter, MOT Tester, Supervisor and Manager.

I bought my first Traction in 2009, and whilst I enjoyed driving it, I was far more interested in taking it apart, seeing how it worked and fixing the parts that others said couldn’t be fixed. I visited John Gillard during a trip to London and the rest is history. Building on my interest I asked John if I could work with him on a voluntary basis and I used my leave from work to do this. I realised that working on tractions what I really wanted to do and reducing my employed hours to part time I started to work for John on a part time basis.

I continued to work with John and over the years, and have built up a vast amount of knowledge and have tackled some challenging projects for him. During Traction rally’s both home and abroad I have fixed cars on the side of the road and in fields, using my initiative and at times great imagination to get cars mobile again.

Over a year ago I opened my own business based in Northumberland, repairing Tractions from all over the Country.

Our Work Examples

Substandard Findings

My experience in discovering sub standard work previously carried out is why I photograph all my projects. I like my customers to see the bits that
are usually hidden from view.

Why Traction Repairs?

I am a practical problem solver and no job is too big, but I will always be honest and advise if a project is not feasible.

As each job is unique I like to work on one car at a time, this ensures that it gets my undivided attention, and I can concentrate on the fine detail. This I feel is my trade mark.

I have maintained my MOT status and each job is carried out to this standard and above.

Each element of a project is photographed so that customers can see the detail of the repairs or restoration before the car is put back together. I feel that this is very important aspect of the work I do.

I am situated a short distance from Morpeth Railway Station which is on the London to Scotland East Coast line.
