We were featured in the November-December 2020 issue of Jensen’s Owners Club Magazine for a Jensen 541S we restored a few years back for Ronald Everaert who recently wrote a piece for the magazine about his Jensen.
One of our favourite parts of restoring cars is being able to see the owners enjoy their pride and joys again, ready to make more memories in. It’s particularly lovely to hear from them via photos and articles such as this!
Our 1974 De Tomaso Pantera features in Alison Hammond’s recreation of Kylie Minogue’s iconic music video ‘Can’t get you out of my head’.
Last week the team took our restored De Tomaso Pantera up to the ITV studios to meet director, Harry Bott. Harry went to great lengths to find the same model and colour De Tomaso that featured in the original music video. Fortunately, we had restored this iconic Pantera, and the owner was happy to help out.
If you’re looking for a certain car for your production, whether it be an old classic or a more modern vintage number, we can help you out! As a company, we’ve had a number of our cars feature in TV and Film.
The full video will air on This Morning on 12th November so keep your eyes peeled.
You can see the car’s history with us here.
We were recently mentioned in Vision Suffolk’s magazine in an article about two recent Mini winners.
Chris Allitt and Courtney Barker both won Minis as a result of entering our monthly competitions.
You can see the article in edition 28 available here.
We run our competitions each month. By entering you could win a classic car for under £20! You can find out more by visiting our competition website here.
Our 1990 Austin Mini Thirty winner Courtney Barker couldn’t help but share this gushy Instagram post about her new toy!
“Always wanted one of these and still cant believe its mine!” – Well you better believe it Courtney, its certainly all yours!
Courtney has been a classic car fan since she was a child and has even set up her own car fan club – East Coast Japanese. She’s clearly been having so much fun with her new Mini, she’s forgotten to take pictures!
If you fancy winning your own classic Mini, we’re currently running a competition for someone to win this fantastic 1991 Rover Mini. To pick up your tickets, head to our competitions website.
Our Austin Mini has sparked some online conversation!
Bridge Classic Cars has undertaken the bodywork preparation and paintwork. Our Paint Shop finished the vehicle in this dazzling ‘Surf Blue’.
The team at Electric Classic Cars have now begun installing the braking system. With 300+ horsepower now coursing through the wheels, this Mini was going to need a bit of an upgrade!
With over 3,000 likes, comments and shares, this little electric Mini certainly is a talking point! What do you think of the build? Spoiling an iconic classic or adapting to survive in the 21st century? We’ll keep you updated as the build progresses.
A former classic of ours, a 1980 MG Midget, has been featured in Enjoying MG Magazine. Her owner, Arthur Civill, gave a brilliant write-up on her history and talked about how he bought the car.
“I was fortunate to be able to purchase the car in 2018 following a fairly comprehensive recommissioning programme carried out by Bridge Classic Cars.” Arthur describes, “the car is absolutely mint and drives superbly.”
Prior to coming to Bridge Classic Cars, the MG Midget was in the same family for over 37 years. We hope she spends the next 37 with our good friend Arthur Civill, it sounds like she’s found a fantastic home.
Ahead of the Live Draw tonight, our biker buddy tomboy_a_bit shared this cool picture of herself on our 1963 BSA Trials Bike.
There’s now only a couple of hours to go before we finally find out who the lucky winner is. This bike is great fun, easy to ride and a firm biker classic.
Even though tomboy_a_bit is new to the world of classic motorbikes, she too couldn’t help fall in love with them; “It’s got so much character!” She said about our BSA, “I can’t wait to ride another classic bike soon.”
Make sure you tune in to watch the Live Draw tonight at 7pm over on our Facebook page.
If you want to be involved in the action, check out our current competition line up to see what other cars and bikes we have up for grabs.
Colin Dixon, winner of our 1966 Ford Mustang, has appeared in his local newspaper this week – The Stourbridge News.
Colin won the American muscle car through our classic car competitions site. He bought a single entry for just £7.50 which turned out to be the winning ticket!
Since then, Colin has been enjoying the Mustang with his wife Christine, describing the win as “a dream come true.”
For your chance to have a dream come true and win your very own classic, head to the competition site to check out our current prizes.
Our eye-catching lemon-yellow 1973 TR6 was spotted having a quick pit-stop at First. Coffee Shop this afternoon.
We completed a full roof restoration on this sporty little number a few months ago, and we’re super pleased with the final look. It’s only fitting that lemonade was the drink of choice!
Our 1971 Lotus Europa was spotted near Debenham this morning by some eagle-eyed classic car fans while being transported to our workshop in Pettistree. It was then appropriately posted on the Facebook Group ‘Cars You Don’t See Anymore’.
They’ve clearly got a keen eye, as not only did they spot straight away that she’s a Lotus, they also spotted that she’s in need of a good wash!
Well, we’re happy to oblige… So, next on the ‘to-do’ list is give this stunner a well deserved wash. Thereafter, we’ll be figuring out what work needs to be done to get her back on the road.
Our 1989 BMW M3 E30 was left gleaming this week after a full valet by Viper Auto Valet, following the paint job we carried out on her recently.
So happy was her owner, he just had to share the news with our good friends at Vint-tro. Including some gleaming pictures of his pride and joy.
She’s looking as fierce as ever!
Thanks to Mike at Shine Supply UK for opening up on a Saturday morning to help get our 2012 BMW 640D Convertible ready for collection. A quick turnaround was required on this one as we were contacted on Friday evening by a buyer who wanted to collect the car on Saturday evening.
Seeing as the weather at the moment is so brilliant we have been using the car. Although it was nice and clean it was not acceptable to be handed over to the new owner.
And whilst in the Shine Supply UK HQ we had a little look at some of his other cars.
We are now one step closer to being able to hand the keys over to the new owners, father and son who will look to enjoy the car and carry out small remedial jobs on the car in the coming years. What a great way to spend some quality father and son time.
The launch of Bridge Classic Cars Competitions has featured in Classic Car weekly.
Our story begins with one of our Classic Car Technician’s, Mauro.
Mauro won his dream car, whilst in a service station, by buying a ticket in a car giveaway competition. We saw what a life-changing effect winning his dream car had on Mauro so we thought, ‘How great would it be to offer a classic car enthusiast that very same feeling?’
This was when the idea of Bridge Classic Cars Competitions was born. For less than a tenner and very realistic odds one lucky winner will be driving away in their dream classic car.
Our MGB Roadster winner will be drawn this Saturday. To keep up to date with all of our competitions, make sure to ‘Like’ us on Facebook.
