Default Videos of Bristol personnel on Bristol Owners Heritage Trust website.

While we endure the tedium of our latest (and let us hope final?) lockdown, Bristol enthusiasts might like to have a look at the 20 or so videos Matt Wenner and I made of various Bristol - related people; including factory, services and showroom staff, works and privateer racing drivers, apprentices from the 1950s, Sir George White, Syd Lovesy, Geoff Marsh, Toby Silvertonís Fighter story and other relevant , characterful voices- warts and all.
Do have a look!
They are all available to view (free to all) via our Bristol Owners Heritage Trust website - search for bristolownersht.com.
The Bristol story isnít over- even if Bristol Cars Ltd is no more.


KH edit- You can find it here https://bristolownersht.com/videos/

This is wonderful. Syd had some interesting views on the later cars! (e.g the 603 - "a botch job").

I was pleased to hear his comment about the Chrysler engines being standard engines that were not modified by Bristol.

PS. I hadn't watched the whole thing - it gets much more interesting!

This video is a bit tedious initially because Syd can't recall (or wasn't party to) what went on 60 years earlier, but stick with it, because it gets more interesting as you get into the latter half of the interview. Sadly there are many things that most of us don't want to hear.
