Sept. 16, 2009 - PRLog -- Graham Smart now offers classic and vintage car owners the opportunity of having first class hand made manifolds built and shipped right to their door anywhere in the world.

After a lifetime of building manifolds, the urge to help others enjoy the thrill of classic sports cars still lives on. Graham Smart, a true craftsman of international standing, loves to build manifolds, Brooklands silencers and fishtails particularly for classic sports cars and their owners.

Graham had a solid grounding in engineering from the early age of 15 .He took his apprenticeship in the age old art of blacksmithing. He learned everything about metal from how to drill it, machine it, thread it, file it, cut it, fire weld it, gas, arc, MIG and TIG weld it.

Let Graham pick up the story...

"I learned about triangulation and gussets then once all that was in my head and my hands I know that once whatever I am building is built, it will work first time because there are no weak areas."

At the end of his apprenticeship, Graham moved from Brackley in Northhamptonshire to Hull in Yorkshire where among other things he picked up his guitar and played.... He returned to Brackley which is famous as the "Silicone Valley" of race-car engineering in the UK and around the world. The "creme de la creme" of performance car developers and engineers dominate the area..

Wallcolmondy Corporation, a forward thinking American company, employed Graham Smart in the research and development department. There he dealt with coatings in nickel and cobalt. In fact the company  employed only him in R&D. Graham was the research and development department for Wallcolmondy Corporation!

Graham again...

"A small claim to fame lies in the fact that we sprayed the telescopic legs for the Explorer lunar landing and at least I can say that one of the parts I worked on is on the moon..."

Graham started his own company and made exhausts, manifolds and Brooklands silencers for classic sports cars, motorbikes, boats, aircraft, hovercraft, racing chainsaws (yes, RACING CHAINSAWS) and in fact anything that had an engine! Hand made manifolds and silencers for classic sports cars are Graham's area of expertise.
