The story of a life
A life at 100 miles an hour. Dreams in the corner of his mind and a myriad of anecdotes, often about cars, have shaped the life of this "young" collector as he likes to call himself. Although collecting came late in his life, the automobile has always been central to it. During a conversation, he reminds us of one of his first automotive emotions on the benches of the faculty, when he was taken in hitch-hiking by a Jaguar Type E, it was in 1966. That's how the first car to join the collection was the Jaguar E Type.
