Hi all,

While away in the Cotswolds, a visit to the motor museum in Bourton-on-the-Water was a must. To say that it's a fascinating place to visit is something of an understatement. The place is packed to the rafters with not just interesting cars, but mountains of memorabilia including signs, posters, tools, accessories, and just about everything else that relates to motoring from the earliest days of the 20th Century. And of course it's home to TV star "Brum".

The collection of pedal cars is amazing, especially as the majority are in un-restored condition. These photos will be added to the pedal car section of the main site soon, below are photos of the remaining exhibits.

Well worth a visit if you're in that area.

Lots of interesting stuff there, thank Rick. I was particularly taken with the green Flying Standard (photo 15), as it looks very much like the one that I used to own, but mine was red, so would probably go faster!

Good photos of a nice collection. I particularly liked the MG1100 Monte set.

Thanks,

Peter

Remember when it was put up for sale about 20 years back? In the end saved by the CSMA, and every time I am in the area I pay a visit.
