Hat Trick Winners

Last week, we had a hat trick give away! Three cars and three winners certainly kept the live draw exciting.

A big congratulations to James Colwell for winning our 1979 Mini Clubman with his lucky ticket number 850. The Mini will be making its way to Gloucester soon.

Our 1998 Jaguar XJR Supercharged was won by Sam Holmes with his ticket number 134. Our Jaguar will be prowling up to Cheshire to truly become the Cheshire Cat!

Finally, our 1999 Mercedes was won by Robert Read with ticket number 131. This lovely modern classic will soon be making its way down to Surrey!

Although Robert’s ticket number was selected, it wasn’t the first ticket number to be chosen by Google’s random number generator. The first ticket pulled was 183 was a number assigned to an unbought ticket. This just goes to show it’s worth buying those extra tickets as that could have been you!

We’ve got our 1972 MGB Roadster to give away tomorrow and with less than 400 tickets left, this beautiful Blaze Orange number is selling out fast!

This has been guaranteed for tomorrow so regardless, this car will find its new owner tomorrow! Could it be you?

Workshop Walkabout

This morning we took a walk around the workshop to take a peak at how our engineers are getting on with the current projects.

1996 Nissan Patrol

The Nissan Patrol is almost ready to be set free on adventures again. Pete has given it a general ‘health check’ and service to ensure its exploration spirit is still intact.

The last stage on the Nissan is to ‘blacken’ the underside to protect it from rust and erosion, which is all the more important for adventurous vehicles like this Patrol!

1972 MGB Blaze Orange

Tamas has been working hard on the latest refurbishments to the MGB which has recently included a new radiator as the old one had developed some rust and holes.

The thermostat has also been refurbished along with its housing and the grill. Tamas has also installed new reversing lights as well.

The Rosytle wheels are currently in the hands of our paint specialist Darren who’s just finished applying the first layer of paint to neaten them up.

1960 MGA

The Red MGA has had a seasonal refurbishment with a heater being added to accommodate for the cold months approaching!

Paul tells us that “the car originally never had a heater in, so the parts have been shipped in from America.”

Its not uncommon to see our classic cars fitted with modern creature comforts such as heaters and radios.

1972 Peugeot 504

Scott has been working on fitting the doors, making sure the latches catch and shut efficiently.

Darren has also been working on the Peugeot, painting the engine bay. This needed two sets of paint, one for the inner parts and a separate colour for the outer parts to match the body of the car.

1957 Jensen 541R

The Jensen is still in the trimming shop where Brian is installing the leather padding that sits just above the windscreen. This piece followed the original design but still had to be cut and made by hand.

Brian tells us ‘It’s quite a fiddly job to fit this panel’.

We can’t wait to see the Jensen completed with its smart new leather from our trim experts.

1965 Amphicar

Our classic car electrician Adam has been working on tidying up the Amphicar’s wires and installing a second pump to ensure enough water is removed from within the vehicle. This means a custom made pump bracket will have to be designed and fitted when the second pump is installed.

1987 Mercedes 500SL

Our engineer Anthony is currently applying a filler to the engine bay to smooth out any bumps.

A keen eye for detail from Anthony is needed to ensure that the Mercedes doesn’t leave the fabrication bay with any imperfections.

Strap Yourself In!

Our 1972 MGB Roadster has had a quick pit-stop in the trim shop this week. Kath has been taking care of the front seats as the base webbing straps were in a pretty bad state.

“All the old webbing straps were falling apart” Kath describes. “So I’ve taken off the seat clips to get to the webbing hooks. I then made new webbing straps and attached those to the base frame”.

Once the new straps were attached, Kath could then pull the cover back over and clip it into place. The seats are now ready to get fitted back into the our little MGB. Lovely work Kath!

Roadster’s Rub Down

Our striking 1972 MGB Roadster had been treated to a full valet this week. All thanks to Colin at Viper Auto Valet.

Finished in the eye-catching ‘Blaze Orange’, a good clean is sure to make her shine even brighter! This lovely little sportscar is now at home in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. That is, until we decide what to do with her next.

By all means, we’re open to suggestions….

All Guns Blazing

We have a new arrival here at Bridge Classic Cars HQ. Our delightful 1972 ‘Blaze Orange’ MGB Roadster.

First things first, we gave her a good check over to see what work (if any) needed doing. As it turns out, she’s a brilliant little runner as she is with very little engine work to be done.

Therefore, we plan to touch up the odd scuff and scratch here and there to make her shine bright once more!

The future looks bright for our blaze orange MGB. But who knows what’s in store for her…

MG Car Club Championships – Snetterton

Friend to Bridge Classic Cars, Tony Burgess of Wyatt Polishing in Thetford, attended the MG Car Club Championships this weekend and kindly sent us a few snaps.

Racing on the 300 circuit, the MG Car Club had all of its Championships in attendance, including the history-rich Cockshoot Cup. There’s a brilliant weekend to be had at this MG specific event, where guests can get up close to many a historic MG race car as well as watching them race too.

We’re big fans of the MG here at Bridge Classic Cars and have worked on many over the years.

One of our favourites was our 1947 MG TC we did a lot of restoration work on, you can read more about the project here.

Another favourite of ours was this gorgeous 1960 MG A. She came to us for a full restoration including paint, engine, interior and body work. Her owner was so chuffed with the restoration he’d written a poem especially for the occasion. You can read about all the work we did on this stunning MG A here.

We’ve even featured an MG in Bridge Classic Car Competitions. Our 1964 MBG Roadster was our first ever prize. Lucky winner Graham Haigh has since been enjoying his new Roadster throughout the summer.

Freddie and Craig hand delivered our very frist competition prize to lucky winner, Graham Haigh. Graham who won our MGB Roadster with ticket number 2201!
