Off to Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Apologies to anyone on Norwich Road in Ipswich this morning as we unexpectedly slowed down the traffic whilst loading our fantastic classics ready for the trip to Olympia, Kensington for this weekend’s Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

It was lovely to see so many people come out of their homes to take a look at the cars being loaded…hopefully it wasn’t to shout at us for causing disruption.

Here we have our Jaguar E-Type V12 and Jensen 541 waiting patiently for the sign from Robin at Russell’s Transport to load on. As you can see the Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite and the Fiat 500L got the top bunk.

Thanks again if you were along Norwich Road today. If you were late for work, just blame Bridge Classic Cars.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The seamless work continues on our Jaguar E-Type Racing Bonnet

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We’ve just had confirmation from SNG Barratt that our missing headlight diaphragm is now in stock and will be shipped to us very shortly. Once this has arrived the bonnet preparation will be complete and ready for paint preparation.

This is a very unique project as we are pushing the boundaries of design. A lot of the ideas are bespoke and therefore require our skilled team of technicians to manufacture parts rather than relying on the traditional method of purchasing ‘off the shelf’.

As you can see from the latest pictures, the bonnet has really taken shape. The seams have been removed. These seams act as strengthening in certain places so extra enforcement has been introduced where necessary. Everything is hidden to give this beautiful smooth look.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”10079,10080,10081,10082,10083,10084,10085,10086,10087″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
