Ghosts of Bristol

Bristol sports cars

An interesting article, the journalism is a bit rubbish and repetitive but the pictures of what remains of Bristol is fascinating. I'd love to know where they end up, hopefully they get the retirement they deserve.

That's an understatement!

Thanks for posting though, interesting to see. I had no idea that was how metal bodywork panels were formed.

They certainly made some good looking cars, a shame they are no more.

Very interesting!!


I personally consider the Daily Mail to be the lowest form of journalism but they often post interesting articles

At least they reported it with good photos. The auction catalogue is very interesting. Another iconic British motor manufacturer gone to the wall and with Morgan now owned by Italians who is left?
