    Studebaker included, but my favorite was the silver car. 4:52 thru 6:08 Very art deco.

      Great video. I noticed they had the Kaiser Darren listed as a 1959. The Studebaker president was listed as a 1930 but I don't think that was right either. At the end of the video they showed a placard for a 1964 Cadillac and then showed a picture of a 1961.

      Now I know what happened to John Lennon's psychadelic Rolls, or did he have more than one? And what was that siver car at the 5 minute point? was that Alligator upholstry?

          The Studebaker is a 31. The Beatles Rolls Royce was owned for several years by BC's richest man, Jimmy Pattison. I think he sold it to this museum. I think the silver car is a Lancia. Note the similarity in styling with Mussolini's limo.

            I don't know about Spanish registration-plates, but most of the plates looked exactly as Dutch/Holland "old-timer"-plates...
            & there's a few Dutch companies having trouble selling their old-timers since some years now so placing them in a museum at least brings in some (even if small) cash...

              Thank you for sharing a very interesting video on an outstanding collection. The Minerva was of special interest. I was told when I was a kid that one had broken down in the early 40's while traveling on US6 in NE IN and that it was stored until the end of WWII. At the time I was clueless about Minerva autos and I don't recall ever seeing one to this day. All are gorgeous cars.

                I caught the Kaiser also. They only made the Darrin in 1954. That is my all time favorite car, but at 120k+
                it will always be my dream car.
