No more so than now, a classic vehicle is a timepiece of beauty. Here at Bridge Classic Cars, we have a love and passion in restoring classic vehicles to their former glory.

Every single classic vehicle has a story; the motorbike that friends used to travel to the coast in the summer, the local bus that rallied the children to school, the van that delivered the veg to market and the car that remained with the same family through the generations, they all had purpose and they deserve to be cherished. Along the way, sometimes this means upgrading them to suit customer and driving requirements. Whatever the vision and goal for your classic vehicle, let Bridge Classic Cars carry you on the restoration journey of your prize possession.

You can follow yours and many other projects online in a specially designed ‘Projects’ section, a digital service history and restoration log.
