America is always thought to be the home of Motor Car Collections, and if one takes sheer numbers into consideration, then this is so.

However, in Great Britain, small collections of hand-picked motor cars have been quietly accumulated and restored over the years.

More than twenty of these private collections have been visited by Peter Hugo: the likes of T.A. Roberts, A. Bamford, A. Blight, Hon A. Clark, E.N. Corner, G.B Corser, Lord Doune, J.L. Goddard, B.K. Goodman, G.A. Griffin, C.W.P. Hampton, D.S. Johnson, W.A. Lockley-Cook, R. Melville-Smith, A. Meredith-Owens, A.C.M. Millar, Lord O’Neill, R.A. Parker, R.A. Pilkinton, S.E. Sears, H.R. Wilkins, and G.A. Wingrove (the latter being on a slightly different scale, being the works of this master model maker).

This book is a car by car description of these visits, illustrated with over 300 photographs. Some of the finest and most exotic examples of the motor car industry are shown as well as some of the most unusual, from the likes of Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Talbot, Sunbeam, Maserati…etc
