Aww thanks guys, it’s really humbling. Well I am delighted to let you know that I will be back on UKTV for the next episode of Secrets of the Transport Museum this coming Tuesday, 15 February. More info on the button below, set your Betamax or VHS’ to record… Secrets of the Transport Museum
If you’ve been keeping your eye on our Auction Page you may have noticed that we have a couple of Austins on there, which I’m obviously delighted about!

The Shed will be at the Straightliners Open Weekend at Elvington Airfield on February 12 and 13, where he will join a display of top speed and drag race vehicles.
