Down under - in the garage ..
John grew up working on, and riding bikes in Australia. Then his family moved to Argentina and riding a bike suddenly became rather unsafe, so young John started to calm down on the hobby. After moving to Denmark and encountering the cold winters, the bike got replaced by a Fiat 124 Coupe and it just all took off from there. Most of his cars are small, lightweight roadsters, to really experience motoring in one of its purest forms. Perhaps the MGA has been the main illustrator for this - John has owned 14 (!) of them. Among all of this, there is a black sheep of the collection - the Mercedes 190E Cosworth - a great big black sedan for that bit of Senna magic !
