Sorry on moist days the odors do get a bit hard. Cats don't live thee though, just wander in time by time. Come on a sunny day when we haven't been starting cars and yuo'll be happy :-)

This was great. Took the kid with the grandson who is 10.. We where able to walk around through all the old sports cars.. There was a couple of cars that my kid had never seen.. But the reaction of the grandkid was just priceless.

The owner is really nice. He let us wander around, sit in any car, pretty cool. These are not top show quality, museum cars. That is some of the charm. Tons and tons of rare and significant British cars of all ages, TVR, Jaguars, Lotuses,...More
