Smyth Imports, (Authorized Independent Bentley Workshop) travels each year to Cheshire, England. From 1941 to 2002 the production warehouse of Bentley and Rolls-Royce
was located on the east side of town in Crewe. Crewe is a railway town within the unitary authority of Cheshire
East. Bentley has since moved to the west side of Cheshire to the Pyms lane factory where they produce Bentley Motor Cars

Samuel M. Smyth II, and family represents Cincinnati's first
(since the 1950's) and oldest
European car Specialist repair center. With almost 4 decades
training started as a nine year old going to
his Grandfathers and Father’s garages and learning from
them and their factory trained, certified,
and mechanical engineers. After several years of very closely
supervised restorations, Sam was ready to
rebuild an entire car. His father brought in his own
personal Jaguar XK120 and Sam pulled the
engine, stripped the car to the frame, and reconditioned
all the parts and reinstalled everything,
from engine, drive train, Instrumentation and accessories.
(This was just the lead of many other exciting motorcar restorations
including, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin DB MKIII, Lotus Seven, Mercedes-Benz
300 models, MG TC TD TF, Ferrari 365, AC Bristol, BMW 507, Porsche 356, Maserati 3500GT and Quattroporte, Land Rover (Series 1,2,3,Defender), Volvo P1800, Delahaye 178, Deusenberg SJ) His
father told him he was passing on to
him generations of his experience and knowledge. These Strong
basics and almost forty years of hands
on experience have enabled Sam to understand how to repair
all components of a motorcar.
