Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.

I think the Merc is actually an R107 (Panzerwagon).

A couple of years ago a taxi-driver neighbour of mine described that collection to me, he had taken a passenger to the house and James Martin had given him a tour of the garages. Nice to see them for myself, thanks for posting.

Great collection & thanks for posting Richard

I wonder if he's still got the Maserati he spent bucket loads of money on and then fell out with it 'cos it broke down ?

He did an amazing Diva performance at that event.

I was lucky enough a few years ago to be shown around his collection by James Martin and then had dinner in his kitchen with a group of people.

He is a guy who genuinely loves cars and was good fun to be with- the collection you see in the garage at the house is only part of it- the others are in a secret barn. His biggest complaint was that he was so busy he didn’t really get time to drive and enjoy them enough.

Thanks for reminding me of a very enjoyable visit.

The food was pretty good too!
