1985 Porsche 911

Headed Home – 1985 Porsche 911 & 2007 Jaguar XKR Off to Their New Homes

The 2007 Jaguar XKR and 1985 Porsche 911 have left the Bridge Classic Cars workshop at our Suffolk HQ bound for their new homes with their excited new owners.

The cars were collected and delivered straight to the doorsteps of the winners.

We want to wish both of them many happy miles and years with their dream classics.

Final Piece – New Dust Covers on the 1985 Porsche 911

Whilst our friends at Tyre Assist changed the tyres on the 1985 Porsche 911, the Bridge Classic Cars workshop team installed the new dust covers.

The team had previously replaced the corroded dust covers which sit behind the brake discs on the classic 911. The new replacements are a direct change over from the original set taken off the car and bolt straight back onto the hub.

With this now done the discs can be refitted onto the car, brakes reinstalled and adjusted before the wheels are torqued down and it is finally on its way to its new home.

All Change – New Tyres for the 1985 Porsche 911

The Porsche 911 is having new tyres fitted before it leaves us here at Bridge Classic Cars and makes its way to its new owner.

For all of our tyres, we use our friends over at Tyre Assist. They’re mobile tyre fitters and come to our workshop when any of our projects.

The old tyres were removed and replaced with brand new replacements before being reinflated and perfectly balanced by the onboard computer. With this done, there’s just one last job…

The Once Over – PDI and Work on the 1985 Porsche 911

The 1985 Porsche 911 has been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop to have the last small bits and pieces done on the car before it is delivered to its new owner.

The workshop team have gone through the process of removing the original dust covers from the back of the brakes on the classic 911. These had corroded and begun to split, and are not a safety-related item for the car so the team have worked on getting them removed from the car. Replacement dust covers have been ordered and will be fitted to the car before it leaves our workshop bound for its new home.

Behind the Scenes – Live Draw of the 1985 Porsche 911, TAG Heuer Carrera & 2007 Jaguar XKR at Beach Street Felixstowe

With the weather getting better and better, the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions team decided to change things up a little bit. For this, we took our latest competition cars down to Beach Street in Felixstowe to find out who the lucky winners were of our amazing 1985 Porsche 911, TAG Heuer Carrera and the 2007 Jaguar XKR.

The setting was perfect by the coast as the late spring sun began to move back towards the horizon. The team set up the cars ready to show everyone online and everyone at Beach Street to look around, including a newly launched 1980 supercharged Mini Van.

After the usual walk around, it was time to find out who’s lucky day it really was. The team input the numbers for the Google Random Number Generator to choose from and then with a single click, it was done.

The winners:

  • 1985 Porsche 911 – Gareth Evans with Ticket Number 4541
  • 2007 Jaguar XKR – William Pearson with Ticket Number 3102
  • TAG Heuer Carrera – Andrew Parry with Ticket Number 2367

It was a brilliant evening for all and we, at Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, want to say a big thank you to Beach Street Felixstowe for inviting us down and we cannot wait to come back soon!

Pre-clean – 1985 Porsche 911 Prepared for Wash

The beautiful 1985 Porsche 911 in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop has gotten a whole lot more beautiful over the weekend as it had its full valet carried out.

The classic air-cooled Porsche was prepped and readied for the valet by our restoration team ahead of the work starting. So, we thought we would show you a few before photos of the classic 911 still with road grime and dust.

Keep an eye out for the after photos on the stunning 1985 Porsche 911 very soon on the Bridge Classic Cars news page.
