With 42 years in the business of restoration, Lance McCormack started out in 1976 as a Rolls-Royce apprentice. In 1990 he started Romance of Rust, his very own car restoration business. Today he works alongside his sons Algernon and Merlin (see right)
to offer a one-stop shop to their loyal client base.
Craftsman McCormack starred in the TV show Salvage Squad and shares his expertise with product design MA students at the Royal College of Art.
His fantasy car is an early Bentley T1 two-door fixed-head coupe by Mulliner Park Ward.
‘You can park it outside the Dorchester next to the most blingtastic Bentley and it would outclass it,’ he says.
