WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Pemberton Cars is owned and run by Johnny Stokes. From an early age cars have been his life, hobby and a business since 2005. Earlier on in his career he spent a considerable amount of time at Stratton Motor Company dealing in high performance and prestige brands including Aston Martin, Lotus and Morgan with guidance from Guy Munday, Charlie Skelton, Kevin Jordan, Tim Reed and the owner Roger Bennington – all names that are well known in the automotive world.
Johnny is a perfectionist and takes great pride in his cars, using extensive knowledge, experience and attention to detail to source the best cars possible, interesting cars, always searching for the rarities that have that something different about them, be they limited or special editions, or one offs. Whatever it may be, the car must meet high standards; as such, all vehicles acquired will have been driven and possibly owned by Johnny to ensure that the car performs as demanded.
Before Johnny purchases a car, he carries out fully comprehensive checks and paperwork verification process that is performed to ensure that all is complete and correct. Any information he gathers during the course of this exercise is happily passed on to the new owner within the cars portfolio.
Time and general wear and tear will eventually take their toll, so every car that Johnny does purchase goes through an in-depth preparation programme that includes a full MOT with no advisories, a what he has titled the 360 check that includes a full service along with looking at anything else that he feel needs to be up to his level of requirements.
Once workshop prepared, the joy of detailing upon valeting the car that can include trims removed, checked and cleaned. Every car has to be to its best presentation and strength before he will even consider handing over the ownership to someone else.
Within the whole time doing what Johnny does, he still strongly believes and stands by that honesty is always the best procedure, especially with how the world is operated today. Johnny will give every individual a positive, friendly experience with the assurances about the vehicle at any stage during the process.
