Spanish blog

Forum members might be interested to see this Spanish blog. Nothing new but perhaps an interesting read. ( ( Need to keep scrolling down ).

404

I have acquired for the Bristol Hertitage Trust a rare 1950’s publication which contains an article describing in detail the design and manufacture of the 404, followed by a review of the car.

I would like to share the article with any forum member who may be interested.

blog

I rarely post links to blogs on Bristol cars these days. They are mostly inadequate and contain many errors. However, this one seems to be reasonably comprehensive and might be of interest to some members ( if only to indulge in ‘ spot the error ‘ ). There are many links which could be worth looking at.

Bullet coupe?

Interest in the Bullet from the motoring press and online has been worldwide. This is a different viewpoint which members may find interesting. There are 2 photographs from different angles.

This is in this week’s Country Life magazine. From Michael Barton.

Another article

I have acquired for the Hertitage Trust an article from a 1970’s publication. It is a seemingly well researched and very detailed review of the car company from its origins to date. It might be that this article is well known but I, for one, had not seen this article before now.

I would like to share the article with any forum member who may be interested.

Spanish appreciation

It seems that the Bristol marque has aficionados in Spain. I like the translation.
