Trustees, Patrons and Officers

The Trustees serve for a term of three years, and may serve up to two terms only. This means there is always an opportunity for an interested person to join as a Trustee. In addition we have a number of positions to assist in the running of the trust; namely our Patrons, Hon. Treasurer, Membership Secretary,  and Acquisitions  agent.

Dr Stefan Cembrowicz – Chairman


Retired Bristol GP Stefan has owned Bristol cars continuously  since 1971. He is fatally drawn to their fine engineering, exotic aeroengineering roots, and strong local social history. He will argue (endlessly) that surely these were  Britain’s most advanced cars. He has enjoyed  tracing, interviewing and video recording some 20 key personnel connected with Bristol cars from the 1940s to today.

Jonathan Bird









Jonathan is a semi-retired Consultant Neuropsychiatrist. He ran a 411 for 20 years until recently and has been fascinated by Bristol Cars since he was a lad. As a 15 year old he and a friend managed to get a peak inside the Filton factory before being ushered out. He owns a few other old cars but feels he should not leave it for long before he runs a Bristol again.
