[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For some time now we’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our latest restoration project, a 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 Convertible.

After a long trip over from the states it was great to finally hear the news that she had arrived safely into Felixstowe docks.

So at 8am this morning we set off up the A14 to the docks at Felixstowe to collect her.

It’s situations like these that have make you realise just how lucky we are to have one of the largest container ports in the UK right here on our doorstep. In a way, I think we take it for granted just how close we are to Felixstowe.

So we arrived at the warehouse and sat ourselves amongst the large queue of HGV’s, all waiting to collect their loads ready for the day ahead.

We were eventually advised to drive round the back of the warehouse and await further instruction from the guys there…so we set off.

I half expected to go round the last bend of the warehouse and see our Jaguar E-Type hidden between a huge stack of empty pallets but no, far from it intact…

…turns out Bridge Classic Cars wasn’t the only company awaiting the arrival of their imported classic car today.

Now the fun starts![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”4169,4170,4171,4172,4173,4174,4175,4176,4177,4178,4179,4180,4181,4182,4183,4184″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
