The last year has involved a few shuffles around to move cars from one place to another and it's certainly been an interesting logistical exercise, but finally that rotation is now over as everything can be together in their new permanent home. Having originally stored the collection as it grew in London, before moving out to Duntbarn last year, and then more recently a short term placement at a storage of a friend, we can finally get everything into their long awaited new home.
With a few runs required to move everything over, the first step is out in the Porsche Taycan to collect the AMG GT R Pro from a visit to Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, before then heading to the temporary storage. We're then preparing for the first run; consisting of the McLaren Senna, Ford GT, Aston Martin Vantage GT8, AMG GT R Roadster and the Taycan, to bring them over and line-up inside the Shmuseum.
After parking the cars, it's into the AMG G63, to go collect the rest, including the GT R Pro, as well as the Toyota GR Yaris, Ford Focus RS Heritage, and McLaren 675LT Spider. Thankfully despite a forecast of horrible weather, we manage to avoid the rain and bring everything in, as well as the BMW M3 Competition arriving too, and the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 already being at the garage. This is the first time so many of the cars from the collection have been together, and it's just the start of a lot of work to come at The Shmuseum and transforming it into a dream garage.
However, one of the most exciting things is to finally be able to install an EV charger, and specifically the CTEK Chargestorm Connect 2, which will enable me to be able to charge my Taycan at much, much faster speeds and completely open up the world of EVs. In addition, the entire fleet will be maintained with CTEK smart chargers, ensuring everything is ready to go on the bottom, and kept in perfect working order, solving any issues I've had in the past with these things.
