On Sunday, Molly and Lily visited the Ipswich to Felixstowe rally.

Starting at Christchurch Park in Ipswich before travelling to Felixstowe Seafront, the rally was organised by the Ipswich Transport Museum and has been an annual event for many years (with the exception of a COVID-led hiatus), and it was extremely well attended.

While at the event, Molly and Lily spoke to a number of attendees about their vehicles and they had a fantastic time. The vehicle owners they spoke to included:

  • Glen and Barbara Hurlock. They had a Ford Zodiac that they were very pleased made it to the rally in one piece as it broke down and didn’t quite make it on their last attempt!
  • Nigel Hodder. Nigel is a former customer of Bridge Classic Cars as we worked on the interior of his TR6.
  • Peter Meredith also showed off his 1971 MGB GT which he has had the pleasure of owning for the last decade.

A particular highlight of the day for Molly and Lily was the tour of a 1939 Bristol Low Bridge Bus that was partly built at Eastern Coachworks in Lowestoft. One of the bus’s owners, Martin, was kind enough to give them a tour and told the story of how a group of bus drivers had bought and restored the bus so that future generations get to enjoy and admire it too.

The bus used to have a retractable roof but this has since been replaced with a solid roof.

Bridge Classic Cars Director, Gordon also attended the rally and he too had a great day spending time with other classic car enthusiasts and admiring the wide range of classic vehicles that made the drive from Ipswich to Felixstowe.
