Car museum pics - Dezerland


Cheezey

Recommended Posts

I visited Dezerland car museum the other day. Apparently there are 2000 vehicles here. I was the only person in the Bond museum. 
Quite a few UK reg cars. I had a feeling of deja vu with a few. I think they may have previously been in the Cars the Star museum in Cumbria.

you didn't happen per chance, to grab any details on its chassis number did you? :) that ones been eluding me for a fair few years now as to which it is exactly! 

but I believe it to be the same one that has about 94K on the clock! :) 

 

Sorry, I didn’t. I’m not usually even this dedicated with pics. 
It might be worth emailing them. It did feel like an enthusiasts collection rather than just a commercial enterprise.

I enjoyed that, looks a brill place.

It was cool. When I pulled up the car park was empty. It is like a shopping centre inside. A third of it is the car and Bond museum. The rest is a go kart track, cinema, bowling alley, arcade, axe throwing, food outlets and unoccupied units. 
There is a huge Pro Bass Fishing shop next door. I bought a Moon Pie. What a time to be alive.

Michael Dezer went on a bit of a buying spree about 15 years ago. He bought up loads of mundane rare cars in the UK including my Simca Aronde. He bought it through ebay and I thought it was a wind up until the truck arrived. The transport company had been working for him full time just picking up crap he had bought. I did see a picture of my car out there some years ago as his collection wasn't a proper museum at the time and everything was for sale. First 2 pictures are of it in L.A the second two are from when I owned it after buying it from a Lady who used to race at the Le Mans classic

Funnily enough I was making a point of trying to find a Simca on display for my Dad as my grandfather had a very small Simca dealership. I had my Dad on FaceTime a couple of times when walking round to show him stuff. It was that quiet I could FaceTime without being obnoxious.
