Having dropped in to the Haynes Museum last Saturday with X9OC chums for a cup of tea at the end of the West Country Rideout, I decided to ride down again and 'do' the museum itself - it's a bare 50 minutes down the road from Salisbury. It's fantastic and well worth at least another visit fairly soon.

The cars are immaculate and the variety astonishing.

There is a small but perfectly formed Motorcycle Gallery which includes a comprehensive collection of Speedway Bikes.

One thing which particularly made me think: A 1931 Duesenberg, bought at the time by the wife of Whitney (of Pratt & Whitney fame) for the huge-at-the-time sum of £15,000 is now worth £8,000,000! In contrast, the 1996 F1 Ferrari driven by Michael Schumacher cost £8,000,000 to build but is now worth only £30,000! The Duesenberg is enormous - Cruella Deville, eat your heart out! :D

The Dues is the one with the man in the maroon jacket standing at the front of it:

It really is worth it.

It's not the cheapest but if you do the 'charity' bit you get unlimited entry for a year.

Shop's good, cafe's good, plenty of level parking and very close to the A303. Smile
