Two Beautiful Classics

Every now and again, we have two classic cars side-by-side that just have to be photographed together. Today, this happened with our 1929 Riley 9 Tourer and our 1927 Delage DI Sport Boat Tail.

From the front, there are some similarities in the look of these two cars that are just two years apart in age but, from the rear, it’s a very different story!

Our Riley 9 Tourer and our Delage DI Sport Boat Tail are stunning on their own but, when seen together, the resulting picture is something very special indeed.

A Boat Tail Arrives

Our 1927 Delage DI Sport Boat Tail has recently arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. This stunning classic car has come to us for a service and to fix an issue with its fuel pump.

We often get unique and interesting vehicles come through our doors but our boat tail is a particularly eye-catching car and it is already drawing lots of attention.

A Visit From The Jensen Owners Club

This morning, we welcomed members of the Jensen Owners Club into The Atelier at Bridge Classic Cars.

Our workshop was the meeting point for the group before they headed off for a photo shoot in the local area. While they were with us, they enjoyed a drink and some cake, as well as taking a look at some of the current restoration projects the team are working on.

It was great to meet a group of enthusiasts who have a passion for Jensens as much as we do (and their cars looked incredible too!)

Appreciated it and I will see you all at the next one.

Almost Up And Running

Our 1984 Suzuki GSX 400T has continued its restoration progress.

The headlamp bracket and the rear lights still need to be sorted and all of the electrics are currently being positioned out of sight.

The tank will be fitted soon. Once this is fitted, it can then be decided where the electrics will go. The tank has been lowered so space is more limited. The bike will also be rewired with a new harness as this will be more time effective than trying to make the existing wiring fit.

A KTM ignition switch that fits the top yoke should be able to be re-purposed so the positions include lights ‘on’. This means that just the starter button, horn button, and dip and main will be on the bars. The bike should be complete in around 10 days, although the exhaust still needs to be fitted up.

The footrests have been positioned 5-6″ further back so, when riding, you can stretch over the bike to get a more comfortable position. The only mechanical work left to do is the exhaust and fit the bodywork, and then the wiring will be finished before the bike gets up and running.

A Finished Riley

The time has almost come to say goodbye to our 1929 Riley 9 Tourer. After spending some time in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it is clear to see the transformation that it has gone through.

When it first arrived, the interior needed quite a bit of work to bring it back to its current state. Fortunately, classic car technician Brian has been able to do a fantastic job and masterfully took the almost empty interior and turned it into one that perfectly fits this rare classic hill climber.


As you can see from the photos below, our Riley 9 Tourer has come a long way and we are very excited to see it return to its owner very soon.

Supercar Showtime

The 5th Supercar Showtime 2023 took place on Sunday 11th June. This is a not-for-profit car event run for the benefit of the charity Derian House Children’s Hospice.

More than 150 supercars and hypercars were on show for those in attendance to admire. An auction also took place where items such as road trip packages, artwork, luggage, and hot air balloon flights could be purchased.

The event raises money for Chorley-based Derian House which provides 24/7 palliative, specialist respite and end-of-life care for over 400 children and young adults throughout the North West. Seeing supercars up close is exciting enough but knowing that you are helping to raise vital funds for a special charity like this makes the day even more important.

Friend of Bridge Classic Cars Malc, and his grandson Owen, went to Supercar Showtime and were kind enough to send us a whole load of photos. As you can see, there were some very interesting and exciting cars on display and it looked to be a successful event.

Daimler Service

Classic car technician Steve has been servicing our 1994 Daimler Double Six.

During his work on the car, he fitted new air, fuel, and oil filters. Steve also removed the air conditioning pump and coil so he could change all 12 spark plugs. The spare wheel retainer had to be repaired as the roll pin had broken.

Steve noted that a new expansion tank cap was needed as the rubber seal on the current cap has split.
