In Adelaide Australia are 297 cars in a collection, none for sale of course. An amazing find though!

The range of body styles includes sedans, coupes, roadsters and convertibles trucks and vans which range from the 1930s to the 1980s.
The collector regards himself as a guy who is keeping cars from the crusher. He maintains that even humble cars, such as pre-war Austins, should not be scrapped and that he’s is not hoarding them but saving them for future generations. He’d like to build a museum and restore some of the cars - and about one hundred and fifty cars on another farm.
The passion began when the collector gained his driving licence but he became serious when he bought his farm in the 1970s. He stored cars in sheds until they filled up, then the collections spread into paddocks.
