I found myself driving up to Gaydon last year, or maybe the year before, on my way back from somewhere or other.  Thought it would be a nice little interlude.  Drove around until I found what I thought was a suitable parking slot.  Approached the door.  Saw the price of admission.  Got the hell out of Dodge!

I remember when the current premises was launched as the “heritage motor centre” (hence my username) in about 1993.

Its very much more of a broad church now with acquisitions such as the David hill collection, which is A Good Thing.

A little bit of me is sorry about the 2003 sell off of some of the collection. Before then it was a bit of a shite lovers dream of various esoteric first and lasts. Last allegro VDP? Don’t sell it to a semi crippled pensioner have it wheeled off to gaydon. ETC. I guess that’s a bit harder to monetise.

It’s a bit less niche now with Less of an emphasis on various automotive orphans- some do remain thankfully.
