The collection of memorabilia is astonishing, something that can only be amassed from decades of collection.  As an automotive enthusiast it is very easy to spend hours looking at every small item from the 1910s through the 70s.  Even the collection of oil cans is extensive, some of these brands I had never heard of before.

It would be great to see this on shelves today, as I’m sure much of the advice still applies today.

It also gave me a chance to shoot some of my favorite cars in Jeff’s collection.  This 1964 Jaguar MKII is a great example of what a proper sedan should be like.  Tray tables in the rear seating area, a four speed manual transmission, and of course a powerful inline, twin cam, six cylinder up front.

No Jaguar collection could be without the iconic XKE, and Jeff doesn’t disappoint here.  A pristine Series 1 was in his workshop getting a tune up prior to the summer driving season.

Jeff’s collection is also home to some very unique and clean vintage race cars.  This is one of several he actively campaigns during the season, a 1956 Lotus XI LeMans.  This car was originally designed by Lotus as a factory racing car, and participated in LeMans for several years before being brought stateside.  This car has an amazing history and pedigree, but more on that at a later date.
This video is made to be a preview of whats available there, expect a full feature on this Lotus in the coming months.
