Ultimate Movie Car Collection

Mark Perkins has spent the last 25 years putting together an unmatched collection of vehicles from famous movies and TV series. Mr. Perkins says owning a Ferrari or a Bentley is nice too, but he’s just not that type of guy. He’s rather interested in finding and acquiring famous vehicles that everyone recognizes. After a quarter century of scouring for this definitive movie motors, he’s now the proud owner of the original Flintstones car, Del Boy’s Reliant Regal, Batman’s Batcycle, Mr. Bean’s Mini, Starsky and Hutch’s Ford Torino, and the Aston Martin James Bond drove in Goldfinger. He also owns replicas of the Batmobile, the Ghostbusters’ Ectomobile and Noddy’s Toyland car. They’re all stored in his basement , in Ascot, Berkshire. Aware of their value, Mark Perkins has insured them for a hefty sum, 500,000 pounds.

Dude, that Batmobile is not just every kid’s fantasy, vintage car collectors love them as well! I’ve heard that there are only 4 built by the original creator and only one successful replica. That definitely deserves being part of the so-called “collector’s” edition.

One thing that would really make me happy is to meet a man that has a lot of awesome cars in his garage! Hahaha! Gosh! Those wheels are just fabulous! And I’m sure they’re more than just eye candy because all those are clearly precious pieces of automobile history! :p
