    @Fat Controller to answer your question on the other thread. For some reason, I cant find a lot of the photos from the museum I mentioned, but here are some of them. First, a bit of history.

    Just after WW2, there was a well known magician here in Sweden known as Svedino. During the 1950's and early '60's, he bought up basically any vehicle he could find in barns, or in one case, a swamp! Rather than restore them, he simply put them in storage as a kind of record as to how things were. At the time, people thought he was a bit mad, and thats putting things mildly.

    Anyway, a few photos….

    Never raced or rallied…(note the Jag in the background).

    This, believe it or not, is a Motorhome!...

    Direct from a Swedish Air Force base. I had to add this, as the father of my oldest friend in the UK was a part of Frank Whittles team...

      :wow:

      Folk might have thought he was mad back then, but he did a great thing! That wee Jag is some sort of toy, surely? It looks really small.

        A better photo of the Jag...

        I dont know much about it, other than what is written on the card in front of the steering wheel. All that says is that it is a model of a D-type, and the name of the man that built it. The photo on the bonnet shows the real car, taken at Le Mans?
