Michael, the owner, has lots of interesting stories of the cars he has owned and people he has known, worth visiting just to hear his past. Only about 30 vehicles on display but well worth the visit to see some very unique cars. A collection of memorabilia and model cars to view as well. Good way to fill in an... More

Engage with the owner Michael Finnis and he will explain his familys history working with cars and stories relating to the cars on display which enhances the experience. Ask him the story about the red Jaguar. A good collection of Chryslers and some very rare cars, some I... More

The shed looks like nothing from outside, but when you step inside, your eyes light up to the vintage, classic and newer collection from the Finnis family. A small fee to enter, lots of model cars in showcases, posters and photos. The owner is very friendly and loves to tell a story about his collection. Enjoyed looking at the Singer,... More

The owner of this is a private collector who needed to keep his wife happy and move all his cars out of the family home. So up went a massive shed and in came his cars. It's great value for money and we spent hours there looking, chatting and loving it.
