Dave Mathewson (full name David Mathewson) is no stranger among Bangers & Cash fans.
The Yesterday network program continues to be one of the most popular shows on the channel, with the previous fourth series being the strongest so far, bringing in an average of 555k viewers across the eight episodes. A new fifth series Bangers & Cash: Restoring Classics premiered in January 2022 encircling the everyday dealings of the family-run classic car auctioneers Mathewsons, like old times.
Mathewson’s, as you know, is a dynasty of classic car auctioneers from picturesque North Yorkshire. And now Dave Mathewson, whom we are going to discuss in the rest of this writing, is not just the company’s trusted lieutenant but also its heir.
Dave Mathewson On Bangers & Cash
Yes. Dave Mathewson is the son of Derek Mathewson, the founder/owner of Mathewsons. And the show Bangers & Cash is about their family’s unique auction business as well as their passion for classic cars.
In Dave’s words, the show is predominantly about re-homing classic vehicles from one eccentric’s garage into another eccentric’s garage. He believes that the world would be a boring place to be without their small level of “harmless insanity”.
So on this show, the audience gets to see him working at Mathewsons, the place he has been all his life. Though it was as of 1988 that Dave started working as a full-timer after leaving school. Before that, at the age of 13, he had his workshop. (As per LinkedIn, he got his Engineer’s Degree (diploma) in Automotive Engineering Technology (1984 – 1989) at Wootton High School.)
Anyway, the Mathewson family business featured in Bangers & Cash includes three generations Derek, his sons Paul and Dave, the grandchildren, and (of course) Sarah, their family friend, and office manager.
York-based Air TV, the production company behind the series, putting it all in a sentence said, “There’s Derek’s expertise and wit, sons Dave and Paul’s great knowledge, humor and hard work, and office manager Sarah is holding it all together.”

Who Are Dave Mathewson’s Parents And Siblings?
As you already know Derek to be Dave’s father, let us tell you it is Sue Mathewson who his mother is. As per her BIO on Facebook, Sue is from Luton, now based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, and still married to her husband Derek Mathewson.
For siblings, Dave only has his brother Paul who like him is a trusted lieutenant and heir of their family business. Paul turned down an apprenticeship at Peugeot to start straight from school in 1996. His son still very-young son Charlie is also appointed in the company as its general helper.
When asked “What’s it like working with family?”, Derek said its “Challenging!”, “Tricky”, Paul said and Dave elaborating a bit said, “Life’s a challenge… and then you work with your family!”
Together, Dave’s folks started the company in 1970 with the sale of modern cars and commercial vehicles in Bedfordshire. By the 1990’s they were operating two main agencies with the Classic & Vintage side of the business very secondary. Fast forward to now, the company continues to grow strongly and proves so much more interesting than modern vehicles. They claimed to have around 60 classic cars, 50 motorbikes, half a dozen classic commercial vehicles, and a large collection of automobilia.
Now, they say, the dream is to one-day own premises large enough to hold their total operation in one location.
