Assembled over many years, this is an eclectic collection of motor vehicles made by a professional. The vehicles were chiefly mid twentieth century and included several with competition history as well as others with a unique South Australian connection. Fine collection of model cars too.

I went through quite some years ago and the owner was very accommodating in answering questions and obviously enjoyed the chat about old cars and bikes.
