About Us

I. Stojanov & Sons LTD was started in 1964 by Ivan Stojanov who was taken from the Ukraine by the Germans in 1942 during the war and after severe hardships ended up in England just after the war.

He started the little village garage at Stoke Orchard near Cheltenham from nothing by just selling a few gallons of petrol a day and repairing cars. Over the years the garage has become larger by adding a car showroom and he started selling used cars. Later the garage started selling new cars too, and over the years have sold makes such as Mitsubishi, Skoda, Alfa Romeo, Lada and Proton.

In 1988 Ivan retired and his son Peter took over the business. In 1991 Peter decided to branch out into Gloucester and built a brand new dealership on the Bristol road called Clearwater cars, selling new Fiat, Kia and Proton cars. 

In 2011 he opened his third dealership on the Bristol road called Bristol road cars selling all makes of used cars from £2999 up to £50,000 with a lot of prestige cars such as Jaguar, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and Audi.

Clearwater Cars on Bristol road is an official Kia authorised repairers and have the latest Kia equipment to service and carry out warranty work on all Kia vehicles under the seven Year warranty policy, as well as stocking around 50 used Kia cars with huge savings against new car prices.
