A great article in the East Anglian Daily Times about one of our recent local winners, Matthew Sudgen and his 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight.
“I didn’t realise at first that I had won, so when they called me I thought it was a wind-up. I only bought one ticket – it was incredible. It’s brilliant to drive. It’s very rustic and very different to drive than modern cars.”
Matthew tells us he’s taken it out a few times already and is loving it.
In a wonderful cyclical move, the Morris Minor that started its life in Ipswich and then moved around the UK has found its way back to Ipswich with its new owner.
We wish you many more happy miles, Matthew!

Last night we hosted our live draw where we announced the winners of our Morris Minor and Triumph Stag, congratulations to Matthew and Gamal.
It was our first live show working alongside local production company, Bruzier.
As we look to continually improve on our live streams, we endeavour to create exciting and interactive content.
Soon we hope to open our doors so that many of you can join us in our productions.
Extra cameras, microphones, and the new large display all help make the experience from watching at home more exciting. But of course week 1 comes with its teething problems.
With the launch of three exciting minis, we hope you can join us for the next one.
Congratulations to Matthew Sudgen who won our 1949 Morris Minor MM Lowlight with ticket number 25 and to Gamal Zindani who won our 1971 Triumph Stag with ticket number 1047!
Today we had Luke Deal from BBC Radio Suffolk come down to join us at our Hanger at Bentwaters. Luke popped down to chat with our director Craig about our Morris Minor, our raffles and all things classic cars! Luke is a classic car enthusiast himself and was keen to have a go in our Morris Minor. Take a look at the behind the scenes photos and interview below.
Luke talks about his fascination for Morris Minors as his father ‘had many’ he tells us; “my father had many a Morris Minor so it’s a privilege to be here this morning to find out more about this classic car.”
Luke took a look around our little Morris and remarked “Something that strikes me is that It’s in immaculate condition for something that’s so old”.
We love getting involved with local businesses and people so it was great to have Luke down at the hangar today.
The internet is a wonderful thing. No sooner had we released images of our latest competition car did we hear from Daz!
Daz resides in Lancashire and happen to stumble across one of our advertisements for the competition. He was shocked to see that the car that Charlotte was happily driving around the Suffolk roads was in fact his old from many years ago.
So don’t just take our word for it, hear it from Daz ‘I used to own this very car, superb little MM, had fun in this!’
Great to hear from you Daz…
In February, we shot this characterful Morris Minor ‘Lowlight’, which you may recognise as out current competition car. We were lucky with the weather as a warm late winter sun graced the skies over Bentwaters RAF base. Ellie and Freddie headed down to our hanger to start photographing and filming our beloved Morris in preparation to be launched on the website.
Alongside our stationary photos, we always capture in-motion shots of the car driving, as well as videos to capture the spirit of the motor.
Detailed shots of the exterior and interior are captured in several locations, giving the team plenty of content to post over the course of the competition.
We were lucky to have our presenter Charlotte join us for the shoot as well, allowing Ellie to snap some portraits of her with our characterful moggy. Charlotte selected her outfit carefully to compliment our motor and set the scene of a sunny roadtrip.
One of our skilled technicians, Lydia, a vintage lifestyle enthusiast joined us on the shoot as well for some portraits. With a carefully selected colour co-ordinating outfit, Lydia perfectly captured the era and charm of our Morris.
James has continued with correct the rust and corrosion on the chassis of the 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight. James made a template and then cut With the chassis now welded up, it has left the fabrication bay and made its way over to our hanger.
We managed to snap a few teaser photos of the Morris as it sat in our work shop before it went down to be stored at Bentwaters for the photoshoot. The interior is just stunning!
Our new Morris Minor Lowlight has undergone some welding fixes including repairing the leaf spring hanger which had begun to corrode. James soon got to work on repairing this in our fabrication bay.
Late one evening last week, a Russell’s transporter lorry arrived with two new additions to the Bridge Classic Car family, one of which being this 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight.
This is soon to be a competition car but before we can shoot and release it, it needs some TLC. Stay tuned…
We may be expecting both of these beautiful Morris’s into the workshop sometime in the near future. The photos below are a 1935 Morris 12/4 Coupe 1500cc and 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight. Morris’s are known for their iconic British charm and trustworthy engineering.
