Hi. My name is John Leathley alias 'the Superpom'
a nickname given to me back in the early 70's by Harold Davies the
then sales manager of the company I worked for 'Girlock'. The nickname
was also sought after by the state manager also a "Pom",
of the "stiff upper lip" type, Major, ex Royal Marines
I have spent 42 years of my life in the
auto repair industry culminating in the ownership of my own business
'Amfor Motors' of East Perth, Western Australia.
I am now retired and enjoying every minute
to the full.
I migrated to Australia in 1973 with my
wife Sandra and two sons Christopher and Anthony. Born of a marriage
between my Father (English) and Mother (Swiss) who went to England
in 1939 to learn the language, but couldn't get back home due to
the hostilities, I Have a Brother who lives in Ulm Germany and a
Sister in York England. We are a well spread family.
I enjoy working on old classic cars and
flying planes (MS Flight Simulator) between Perth and Rottnest Island,
a local holiday resort.
On my site you will find links to some of
the cars I am working on or special events which have featured these
cars aswell as other interests I have such as electronics and ham
