One made in Bristol the other made in Bristol Avenue
One no longer in use
Other going strong and used
One first flew in March 1969 and the other first rolled out of the factory in November 1969
One was the first passenger supersonic plane
Other was the first long wheel based TVR
RIP Concord may the TVR go on forever

I’m filling up...

I still have the JAP Magna wheels, they've been sitting in my garage for over 4 years.
