Motor Heritage Museum, Gaydon

Whilst not as big as Coventry Transport Museum this permanent exhibition at Gaydon has many distinctive and unique motor cars. Astons, Rovers and various other British marques feature highly but this can easily be forgiven. I particularly liked the Tracked Land Rover Cuthbertson conversion and the Alec Issigonis Lightweight Special Race Car.
