What a collection !!

looking at the Sierra 4x4 reg no ending in NKO (red one ) my brother had one with a reg no. D111 NKO must have been a Ford owned car at the time I drove it and thought what an awesome car it was !

glad you all like them

The cars are all still used for photoshoots, lap rides, press days etc.

I could easlily have spent all day in there Having grown up my whole life with Fords and mainly the RS range being in there is like home from home. RS200's my favourite car of all time. Im lucky enough to have a friend who owns a 500+ bhp version that does 0-60 in 2.1 seconds been round brands in it and its amazing!

Im not allowed to disclose the location for obvious reasons. I could take as many pics as I liked as long as there was none of the out side of the building!

Can't wait to go back again!

I really think they could make a packet displaying them all and charging £10-£20 to have a look round them!

Even the chaps office is like a museum! all those models are the official models the cars were signed off with! they weight a tone and are exact minuture prototypes of the real thing.

I would quite happily own any one of those!

It reminds me why I am still a blue oval fan
