De Tomaso Pantera Wheel Bearings

We first saw our stunning 1974 De Tomaso Pantera in February 2017 as an insurance valuation but we welcome her back to the Bridge Classic Cars workshops for a wheel bearing change as well as an oil and filter change.

Work will start tomorrow with all of the parts (hopefully) ready and here waiting.

John With Son Conner Experiencing The High Performance Driver Training

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last weekend John, along with his son Conner to part in Car Limits – The High Performance Driver Training on North Weald Airfield, Essex.

Alongside their instructor, Andrew Walsh, Conner concuered the high speed bend experiencing both under-steer and over-steer. He learnt the skills to correct them and improve his steering. On the day he learnt balanced and trailing throttle, left foot braking, heel and toe and even how to control the rotation of his car and get it back inline from 90 degrees!

With an amazing choice of cars on the day: Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Lotus’, BMW’s, Aston Martin’s, Jaguar’s. Conner’s chosen vehicle, the Ford Mustang GT.

Re-Manufacturing The Maserati Merak Horn Push

We’ve been hunting high and low for a replacement badge for the horn push on our Maserati Merak. Unfortunately the only results we could find was a full horn itself. Thinking this was the best solution we snapped it up but we soon realised that it was not what we needed. The size was right but the set up and finish was all wrong for what we were looking for so back to the drawing board…

… quite literally.

We’ve worked with Pamela David Enamels in the past on our now, world famous 1961 Jensen 541S project so we put a call in to them to see whether they could help in our hour of need. Andy guess what, they have come up trumps once again. A brand new badge is being manufactured as we speak and will be an exact match to the one broken from the car.
