Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Once upon a time there was a tramway & carriage operator in Bristol unhappy with the performance of horseless omnibuses...


So this operator, already experienced in the tramway production, started to build its own buses. Since 1908, Bristol Tramways and Carriage Company Ltd. (which gave birth to the famous Bristol Aeroplane Company) was a part of the British automotive industry. Let's see some:

Sleek, though I wouldn't want to ride in one.

But of course!

Every one of these designs is a classic example of British conservatism in design, It is functional mixed with art and a bauble that the child in us wants to reach out and grab.

Thank you Lord_K.for creating this portfolio.

Postscript:Besides building aircraft, Bristol also built the finest, and one of the fastest race-cars the world has ever seen. The words it brings to mind is character, vintage, competition and beauty. It is the 1953 Bristol 450 Competition Coupe.
