Classic Cars Around The World

Whenever the team at Bridge Classic Cars are out and about, we are always on the lookout for interesting classic cars.

One of our good friends, Josh from Poundgates, has been in Turkey recently and has sent us these pictures of a Tofa Dagon SLX that he spotted. We always love seeing a variety of classics and this one fits the bill perfectly.

Thanks Josh.

A Day At Bridge Classic Cars – Behind The Scenes

There is always something exciting going on in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. Whether it is the restoration of a rare classic or filming the next competition car, there’s not usually much downtime to be had.

Earlier this week, Nick captured some behind-the-scenes photos of a day in the life of Bridge Classic Cars. This was clearly an extra busy day, as the marketing team can be seen outside the workshop planning the filming of a lucky winner coming to collect their car, won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions. Mauro was hard at work in the paint shop preparing a panel from our Amphicar 770 for paintwork. Steve was working on our 1935 Wolseley Super Hornet Special, and workshop manager John was working on a Bristol just outside the main door. There were lots of other exciting things going on too which weren’t caught on camera!

The Bridge Classic Cars workshop is a busy place and it’s always nice to show just a little glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes.

A Winner Comes To Collect His Car

On 25th July 2023, Nick Friar was randomly selected, with ticket number 1569, as the lucky winner of our 2000 TVR Chimaera 450.

Yesterday, Nick came to see us at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop to pick up his car in person. As Nick and his family are relatively local to us, he decided to collect the car and drive it home himself.

We had a great time speaking with Nick and finding out about the previous TVR Chimaera he owned many years ago. With his plan to join the TVR club that he used to be a member of, we are sure that Nick will love being a TVR owner once more.

Looking Back On A Mini Collection

Our 1976 Morris Mini hasn’t been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for very long but it is already live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

As we haven’t had much time to update the project, we thought we would take a quick look back at the collection of our eye-catching Mini, known as Alfie.

Bradley from Drivers4You collected the classic mini on our behalf and delivered it safely to the workshop. Very soon after it arrived it was taken by Molly and Freddie to film, ready to be won at our Bridge Classic Cars Movie Night.

A Special Delivery

A container recently arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop with a collection of cars that have made their way to us all the way from South Africa.

Our special delivery included our 1957 Austin Healey 100-6 and our 1970 Lotus Europa. Both of these are currently going through a workshop assessment and inspection before going on to be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions soon.

Also in the container was our 1935 Bentley Van Den Plas Saloon which will soon be going up for sale.

An Exciting Addition To Our Collection

We have recently added an extremely exciting classic car to the Bridge Classic Cars collection. Director, Gordon has purchased our 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 and it is beautiful.

There has been a DB2/4 in the workshop for a while as we have been restoring it for a customer. However, this new addition is currently in our personal collection. First impressions show that the car is in great condition, although there is obviously some work to be done.

As a full inspection of the car is underway, we look forward to seeing what the future holds for our 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4.

A Finished Service And Going Home

Since our 1935 Wolseley Super Hornet Special arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, classic car technician Steve has been giving it a full service. This has continued with Steve finding that the bottom of the carburettor was leaking and a new gasket kit was needed. There was also play in both track rod ends but this has been adjusted and resolved.

Steve stripped the carburettors ready for them to be cleaned and the new gaskets fitted. The owner of the car had found the timing advance linkage on the floor of their garage. Steve fitted this back onto the car in preparation for it to return home. New points, condenser, and rotor arm were also fitted.

As our 1935 Wolseley Super Hornet Special gets ready to leave us in the next day or two, we are enjoying admiring it in the workshop for as long as we can.

Arrived And Ready To Win

We recently welcomed our 1976 Morris Mini to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

Known as Alfie, this classic Mini has clearly undergone quite a bit of work and care from its previous owners and it is now live and ready to win on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

Classic Minis are always popular competition cars and we are expecting nothing less from this eye-catching example.

The winner will be drawn at our movie night at the Riverside Theatre when we are hosting a special viewing of The Italian Job.
