A very fine collection of of shiny cars.  Couple of less shiny ones in the garage as the camera pans round. 
What is the silver grey four wheeler in he background ?, did not recognise it.  Mopetta is mad, clearly the Germans
didn't always get it right  :D
Have always admired the Tiger with its distinctive registration

The silver car is a replica of a Klienschniggeter, not sure if there were any other replicas in the line up , the Tiger is of course but there may be others too. I dont suppose Andy would have let him drive it if it was a real one.

What is a Schnittger to have a small one of it. I think Messerschmitt translates as Cutler (chap who made knifes and swords) doesn't it? Any way I have yet to view but as I said Andy has a fair few working machines be they original or otherwise, well they are original AC and you never know, his products might become collectable in their own right. So a safe pair of hands for showing stuff without malfunctions and poor set up marring the effect and giving the chance to ridicule that would be grasped by certain media enterprises that spring to mind.

Hello Grant, thank you very much  for your advice.
Andy indead has a wonderful collection of bubblecars. Watching the movie makes me more addicted in british microcars, and it seems there is some more space in my barn for another car.  :)
I could imagine a Bond would fit my collection.

Only answer is a second floor/mezzanine, looks like there is room. Might mean you have no money left to buy the extra car but I did not suggest the idea was foolproof.

You are right Alan, and there is a second floor. It will be decorated soon with some old mopeds and stuff pf the 50th.
I could lift the Peels and the Comtesse upstairs as well, and i win some more space for  "bigger" bubblecars  ;D

Agreed, I spent six months building the loft conversion, when I suggested to er indoors that I build a p50 replica  and keep it upstarts well I wont tell you the response but it still hurts!  :D
