It seems to have everything from a 1926 Rolls Royce to an ultra-rare MG X Power SV.
Tucked away in a nook in Cheshire, UK, an area home to many football stars, is arguably the most eclectic collection of vehicles, featuring a wide variety of vehicles indiscriminately.
The owner of the collection is a certain Tony, who has been collecting it for three decades. At the same time, he was guided by one rule: buy cars that he likes.
As Tony explained to Johnny Smith of The Late Brake Show, he got into cars at a very early age thanks to his father who was a service owner and race car driver. This is what led to such a diverse collection, stored in the three barns of Tony’s estate.
According to Tony, the collection began with a 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera, which he bought brand new and kept for 35 years. The black Porsche is still in great shape with just over 69,000 miles (111,000 km) on it. His next purchase was… a 1944 Jeep Willys.
If this collection has a common theme, it is probably the maximum possible difference between one exhibit and another. And each car is unique in its characteristics. Tony admits his collection is certainly eclectic, with a Ferguson tractor standing next to a Datsun 240Z “Super Samuri” and a 1969 Ford Mustang convertible. A couple of cars away is a 1920s speed-record holder 1926 Rolls Royce 20HP Tourer (which Tony says was an “impulse buy” at Goodwood).
One of the true rarities is the MG X Power SV, a front-engined road racing car produced from 2003 to 2005. Its body is made of carbon fiber, and under the hood is a 4.6-liter V8 turbo engine from Ford.
An even rarer car than the MG is the 2012 360hp Ginetta G60. This is one of only 50 produced copies. The car in Tony’s collection is one of the first to come off the assembly line.
These are just some of the cars featured in Tony’s collection. And the collection is not finished.
