As our 1976 Morris Mini was won last night, classic car technician Jonn has been doing some work to make sure it is ready to go to its new owner very soon.
Some of the work included fitting a new wheel bearing, replacing a wheel stud, and fitting a new fog light switch.
Once Jonn is happy, our classic Mini will be making its way to the lucky winner.
Our 1976 TVR 2500M has been having some work completed by classic car technician Jonn.
Jonn looked at a number of areas of our classic TVR in preparation for it to eventually be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
As well as repairing the bonnet strap, Jonn attached the DAB aerial to the nearside of the windscreen and a new stereo was fitted utilising the original stereo front backing.
Since returning to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for a service recently, our 1991 Volkswagen Transporter T4 has been in the care of classic car technician Jonn.
During the service, Jonn noticed that the wheels needed replacing. This has now been done along with new centre caps also being fitted.
Our 1976 Aston Martin AMV8 recently sold at auction and is now on its way to its new owner.
The journey of our AMV8 started in America before heading over to us here at Bridge Classic Cars. Following its sale, its travels are not quite over just yet, as it is now being shipped over to join its owner’s collection in Dubai.
Seeing our 1976 Aston Martin AMV8 leave the workshop after being with us for quite some time was both exciting and slightly sad at the same time. We are very excited that the car will now be enjoyed as it should but we are also slightly sad that we will no longer be able to admire it every day.
We hope the new owner enjoys our beautiful AMV8.
On Saturday, we held our movie night at The Riverside Theatre in Woodbridge.
We teamed up with our local cinema to host a screening of the 1969 classic ‘The Italian Job’. The evening began at 7 pm when attendees parked their classic cars and spent some time admiring the other special vehicles that made the trip.
The A Listers was also open and drinks were available ready for the screening of the film at 7:45 pm.
One of the highlights of the evening was the live draw of our 1976 Morris Mini which was won by Dan Robinson with ticket number 3410.
We would like to thank everyone who attended for helping us all have a great time and, of course, congratulations to Dan on becoming the new owner of his very own classic Mini.
One of the newest additions to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop is our 1957 Austin Healey 100-6. Coming to us from a good friend of ours in South Africa, this beautiful classic will eventually go on to be a competition car through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
However, before that happens, classic car technician Tom has been hard at work inspecting and assessing the car as well as repairing and replacing various issues and parts found along the way.
Classic car technician Steve has been working on our 1926 Clyno to help get it back out on the road.
Newly relined brake shoes were fitted before Steve noticed that a manifold gasket was leaking. 2 gaskets ended up being removed and replaced.
Classic car technician Chris has been completing more repair work on the frame of our Ford Transit MKII Tipper.
Things are moving along nicely on this restoration project and we hope it won’t be too much longer until it is ready to move on to the next stage of its restoration.
