AC Bluebird at Brooklands Garage
In august company

A recent visit to Brooklands Garage, on the old Brooklands Racing Circuit in Weybridge, was a real eye owner. AC Bluebird is having some suspension and steering work done and needs to be held on a special jig for the precision work to take place.

Steve and Charlie, who run Brooklands Garage, are master craftsmen and have real enthusiasm for AC Cars. My little AC was in the august company of many distinguished ACs. Ken Rudd’s bright red AC Ace was there, which has the original engine taken from AC Bluebird.

Also, the very first Ace built, and displayed in glorious white alongside VPL 441 at the 1954 Motor Show, was also at the Brookland Garage.

It’s a very silly thought, but when everyone who works at the Garage has gone for the day and the lights are switched off, if these cars could talk then what wonderful stories they could tell.
