While some find it easiest working professionally alongside their family, Paul Mathewson labels it to be “tricky.” But then again, it was the chemistry between the Mathewson family members, that made Bangers And Cash so interesting to watch.
Keep reading this Paul Mathewson Bio to learn more about him.
Paul Mathewson On Bangers And Cash
Yesterdays’ Bangers And Cash was all about the Mathewson family, who hunt for rare vehicles to resell, and also in doing so, uncovers some remarkable and heart-warming stories behind the cars.
“Each car has a unique story to tell. It was the dad’s car, the car you first bought as a teenager, the car you always wanted but never had the cash to buy,” Derek explained.
As for Paul, he joked that he was still figuring out what the show was all about. He was surprised at the pieces some of the cars go for. And that includes the big and the small numbers as well.
But despite the randomness of numbers, Paul understands the value of some cars and even had a list of his favorites as well. The last we checked, he was drinking an Mk1 Cortina and a Rover SD1. Also, he owned a TED20 grey Fergie Tractor.
Reportedly, Paul joined the family business back in 1996 straight after finishing school. He even turned down an apprenticeship at Peugeot to join the others!
So, when the family business got its show in 2019 and cameras started following him around, it was kind of a nuisance at the start. “But now it’s second nature,” Paul added.
The show’s fifth installment returned to Yesterday in January 2022, and also its spin-off Bangers And Cash: Restoring Classics was being filmed then — soon to air.

Over time, the company expanded its branches throughout the UK, but it was only after their most awaited venture into the world of Classic Car Auctions in 2011, the company gained country-wide recognition.
Now, Mathewsons offers a variety of Classic and Vintage cars. Their most well-known location, Thornton-Dale has a 300+ Car / Coach park within a few hundred yards of the showroom. To be specific it featured Fast Fords from the ’80s, Jags, Rovers, a Cobra, Standards, a Bentley Continental, a Chevy Stepside, a Bond Bug, and many more.
Their only dream in 2022 was to hold all of their total operations in one location someday. Well, we can’t even imagine how big that very showroom is going to be.
