In Practical Classics there’s a Bristol 400 that’s been saved after being covered in brambles for 30 years.
I havent got the magazines permission to post the extract on here sadly.

Oddly enough I can remember seeing those ones just not the one I posted.

I’ve always admired the elegant lines of the Bristol 411 - completely understated and comparatively light compared to modern cars, but with a 6.3 - 6.6 litre V8.

Originally named the Kestrel. Is that one?

Yes, that’s the one. Also just realised that it was the P1127, not P1128……
