  • For people interested in heavy vehickes this is a unique space. If you're a photographer be aware light levels in several areas are extremely low.

Countless rare and unusual machines that are obviously the result of a lifetime of dedication to building up and restoring this visual symphony for petrol and diesel heads. 😎
