Testimonials

Mr Wilson – Colchester, Essex

“Just wanted to say how much smoother my Pantera feels after the work you have done on it. There used to be a bit of a mid-range dip in power but that has now disappeared. It obviously pulls much better than before and has less vibrations, so over all very pleased.”

Mrs Kulyski – Toronto, Canada

“I write to thank you for allowing me to see the wonderful skilful work that is done in your plant. I am so impressed with what is achieved by the great work to these beautiful cars back to life. On checking your website I see you have a new build going on so hearty congratulations on that. It looks great. I wish to further congratulate you and the men who work with you for their passion for the work that is so very evident. It is such a privilege and treat to have been allowed a visit to your premises. I will never forget your kindness in allowing this.”

Mr Belford

“Hi, I’m the former owner of the Jensen 541 S (prototype) that you have been restoring. I’ve been following the progress of its rebirth online over the past months and now it is complete it looks stunning, well done to all those skills for returning her to her former glory.”

Mr White – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Dear SVEC members. I wish to compliment the services I have received from Bridge Classic Cars Restorers. I arranged to meet Gordon (Owner) at the Bridge Classic and Sports Car Show at Pettistree on the 26th August 2018. (As was advertised on a flyer in a summer newsletter) The upholstery on my 30 year old BMW 635CSi was in need of repair. The leather on the driver’s seat had perished and both front seats were in need of refurbishing and various pieces of trim within the cabin needed refitting. I arrived at the show and parked in the Classic Car area and walked toward the showroom to find on-route, a replica of Dave Pearce’s 320 Superstock! That made me smile! I then walked to the showroom and was immediately impressed by not only the quality of the prestigious cars being restored, (XK, E Type Jag’s, Aston Martin’s…) but the immaculate state of both the showroom and workshops. The floors are spotless! And they did a good job! The replacement biscuit coloured leather in my Beema has matched well with the original colour, it all fits well and although one of my requests to refit the upholstery to the driver’s door had been overlooked, my car was re-collected, the work was undertaken, returned to me and at no further cost. Honest business men! I would also like to compliment Gordon’s son Craig who markets the company and has introduced updates on work being undertaken to your car online. Modern technology put to good use! David White”

Mr Paget – Chichester, West Sussex

“Top guys. Lovely workshop and some very worthy projects and a team with superb restoration skills. I was absolutely spoilt with time and effort from the team. Thanks to all!”

Mrs King – Ipswich, Suffolk

“The car looks and sounds stunning, we got there in the end! I am thrilled with it, thank you so much and thank the guys too…I love them all. I love glitter too!”

Mr Jankowski – Cornwall

“Just a note to let you know the car has arrived safely in Cornwall and thank you for sorting out my mothers car. My mother would be delighted with what you have done, it was her pride and joy. “It’s for me and my handbag” was her claim, but her grandchildren loved to ride in it, squashing into the back.”

Mr Merson

Received a lovely email this evening from George Merson… “Craig. I just looked at all of the restoration pictures of “Finnigen”, my 51 MG TD. I must say you did a fantastic restoration, the car looks absolutely fantastic. It should be good for another 60 years. I do hope the new owner appreciates all the work you and your employees put into the restoration. And of  course I hope you made a good profit. Take care.  George”

Mr Goldsmith – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Just a quick message to let you know about the red MGB GT you put a wiring loom in for me. I would just like to say how happy and pleased I am with the work undertaken. Its very nice for everything to be working on the car and not to jiggle the wires round anymore, to get lights working.  The service was fantastic and allowing me to drop and pick the car up on a Saturday morning was very good of you. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. Many Thanks”

Mr and Mrs Johnson – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Hi, just an email to thank you and your colleagues for all your hard work carried out on the Granada. We found the pictures on your website when it was under going different stages of the respray. She looks stunning and now drives like she used to when we first owned her in 1994. Regards, two very happy customers Mr and Mrs Johnson.”

Mr Grant – Bacton, Suffolk

“I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the restoration work you did on my beloved Midget. I was worried that you might be sniffy about the job as it is just a Midget. I should not have worried. From day 1 your care and attention was beyond anything I could have imagined. The quality of work is fabulous and receives rave reviews from other classic car owners I meet. The fact that you tried to chase down a new badge plinth and then oversaw the restoration of the original plinth was a small example of your commitment to doing the right thing throughout. I felt you were as thrilled with the outcome of the restoration as I was. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. The fact that I immediately asked if you could take on my 1966 Massey Ferguson 35 for restoration should be evidence enough that your work is outstanding.”

Mr Good – Henley On Thames, Oxfordshire

eBay Sale – 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 – Restoration Project “Again thank you and I thought you might appreciate this note, good to deal with honest people! Note from my mechanic: The old girl is on a ramp, nothing really bad to report 🙂 A nice buy and for its age in good shape, a good service and change all fluids, attend to the leaky rocker covers and hose and it should give good service for some time to come.”

Mr Stemp – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Having recently purchased a 35th anniversary Ford Mustang GT from these guys I quickly worked out what a professional, friendly and helpful company they were to deal with.” See the review on our Facebook page

Mrs King – Ipswich, Suffolk

“Thank you for the recent re-upholstery work you completed on my Spitfire driving seat. I was extremely pleased with the quality of work done, speed of service, cost and professionalism. This work hasn’t been a snap decision on my part, I’ve been looking for a garage to do this work for three plus years (my husband says a lot longer), but never found, until now, anyone I was happy to leave my car with. It is a loved and cherished car. Thank you for all your help.”

Mr Hooker – Stafford, Staffordshire

“I recently purchased a Mk2 RS2000 from Bridge Classic Cars. From the first phone call I found Gordon and the team very easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. I arranged a viewing and the car was exactly as listed. I was encouraged to give the car a full inspection including putting it on the ramp to look underneath and was given as much time as I wanted to inspect the car and its paperwork. Any little bits and pieces were listed by the team and sorted prior to collection. A very pleasant and easy purchase, I would highly recommend them”

Mr and Mrs Fry – Droitwich, Worcestershire

“We are very pleased that we found Bridge Classic Cars. We have wanted an Austin Nippy for some time and Asa was more than happy to carry out little things that we found could be improved on. Nothing was too much trouble.”

Mr Tolchard, Sudbury, Suffolk

“I have now bought 2 classic cars off Craig and his team at Bridge Classic Cars. The service I have received on both purchases as been second to none. The cars were fully prepared and everything they said they were going to do they did. I could not recommend them enough for classic car purchases and for looking after the servicing and day to day maintenance on any classic vehicle.”

Mr Payne – Selsey, West Sussex

“I recently brought my 1947 Humber Super Snipe from Gordon and Asa at Bridge Classic Cars of Ipswich. I am delighted with the car and the service I received. Even after the sale, they really went the extra mile getting me the old service history and advice. I would recommend to anyone.”
