One Man's Humber Collection

MailOnline: "They were once loved by the British Army, prime ministers, and kings and queens alike. Humbers were known as the poor man’s Rolls-Royce.

But while more than 80 per cent of all the Rolls-Royces ever built can still be traced today, fewer than one in 100 Humbers has survived. Even more surprising, the largest collection in Britain isn’t kept in a national museum but belongs to a potato merchant from Hull.

Allan Marshall, 55, keeps 27 Humbers in a 10,000 sq ft building next to his lorry depot".

Obviously this collection would be totally worthless if it wasn't for that Gold Humber Sceptre MKIII! ;) For more info check out the HumberCarMuseum.
