Current automotive news is not exactly our main shtick, but Bristol Cars has been building new Curbside Classics since 1946, all on essentially the same platform/frame. My brief history of the remarkably slow evolution of the last traditional coach built British luxury car is here. The Telegraph reports that Bristol Cars is in “administration”, the British equivalent of bankruptcy court. The court appointed receivers “aim to find buyers for Bristol who could keep it running as a going concern.” Good luck with that.
