We recently welcomed our 1980 MGB GT into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. In an eye-catching shade of yellow, with an equally as beautiful black interior with yellow piping, we are very excited to have this as a competition car for Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Once it has been inspected by the workshop team, it will soon be live and ready to win.
Both said it was an extremely interesting place to visit and we will be looking to film a Talking Classics episode from the museum very soon. In the meantime though, you can see how fantastic the museum is from the photos below.
Our 1990 Rover Mini Cooper has been going through its pre-delivery inspection with classic car technician Jonn.
During his inspection, Jonn noticed that the rev counter wasn’t working correctly. To resolve this, he swapped the fascia of a replacement and rebuilt it in the old cluster. After adjusting the rheostat for the rev counter, everything was tested and reading correctly.
The car was then road tested and has now been signed off by Jonn to say it is ready to be delivered to its new owner very soon.
Lewis Hamilton recently sold his Pagani Zonda that was made specifically for him. Earlier this week, the new owner had an unfortunate incident in a tunnel in Wales that resulted in a crash.
While the driver was fine, the car came out of the tunnel looking somewhat beaten up and in need of some extensive (and highly likely, expensive) repairs.
Ironically, Lewis himself crashed the car during his ownership around seven years ago. This incredible car was bought back to life then so hopefully, the same will be true this time.
