Win your dream classic car with Bridge Classic Cars Competitions

1956 Jensen 541

Reaching 46,000 thanks to the Instagram love at Olympia

We’ve had an amazing weekend at Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

With our 1956 Jensen 541 taking pride of place beside the auction area, our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 attracting the largest crowd, our 1972 Fiat 500L seemed to get the most photographic attention and our 1959 Austin Healey Sprite getting the best feedback from auctioneer Guy, the weekend couldn’t have been better for Bridge Classic Cars.

Not only did we receive fantastic feedback over the weekend but a quick search on Instagram showed that our cars were potentially seen by over 46000 Instagram followers. We can not thank the visitors of Olympia and the Instagram members enough for their amazing photos.

It’s lovely to see our cars being photographed and enjoyed by many others…

Off to Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction

Apologies to anyone on Norwich Road in Ipswich this morning as we unexpectedly slowed down the traffic whilst loading our fantastic classics ready for the trip to Olympia, Kensington for this weekend’s Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

It was lovely to see so many people come out of their homes to take a look at the cars being loaded…hopefully it wasn’t to shout at us for causing disruption.

Here we have our Jaguar E-Type V12 and Jensen 541 waiting patiently for the sign from Robin at Russell’s Transport to load on. As you can see the Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite and the Fiat 500L got the top bunk.

Hopefully we’ll see some of you this weekend at Olympia, we’ll probably be somewhere around the The Whisky Exchange Masterclasses.

Thanks again if you were along Norwich Road today. If you were late for work, just blame Bridge Classic Cars.

Getting ready for Coys Of Kensington

She’s out of hiding and today, we welcome into the Bridge Classic Cars workshops our 1956 Jensen 541.

A quick once over to make sure she’s tip top ready for the trip to Kensington for this weekend’s Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

Wherever she goes she draws quite the crowd and today is no exception.

Amongst the spectators was film producer Paul Dolden from Paul Dolden Details. Great to meet Paul and hopefully we’ll see much more of you and your work in the future.
