Michael Murty, Big Pete’s owner, said: “We attend all sorts of events and exhibitions and we have
to start every show with the vehicle in tip-top sparkling condition – from the massive tyres to the tall chrome chimneys, and the vast areas of bright red bodywork in between. We frequently have a variety of different car care products offered to us, but we’ve always used Autoglym. We sometimes take a little longer than it took these experts, but we’re always pleased to be able to achieve a brilliant shine to impress the crowds before we go car crushing.”
