British sleeping beauties

Sleeping beauties, named after the book about a farm house in France where a lot of extreme rare and expensive cars are falling apart after years of standing in the barn. Stories about cars which are used as chicken barn or flower pot. Cars and bikes which have been in barns for many years under straw and after turning the ignition key starting again even after many years of stand still. Stories which are more often told, but will be told less and less and only a few of them are really true. Is it not the dream of us all to find a forgotten Bugatti in the barn of an old woman who wants to clean up the trash in the barn. So now and then I have found cars in the field for which I wondered why these cars were standing here just waiting for some attention. 

Below you will see some movies of a Bentley barn find. See how much fun a barn find van be.

About me

My name is Hermann Egges. I am collecting car brochures and advertisements since I was a little child.

First I collected articles and adverts of cars out of news papers and magazines. After that I went to local car dealers to get the brochures of the cars, showed in their show rooms. I was a happy child if I left the dealer with one or more brochures in my hand. These were the first brochures collected, which are still today in my private collection. This means that the collection of brochures starts in the late seventies up till now.

I try to search for people who have the same interest for car advertisemnets and brochures as I do. I would like to share experiences and information and hope to get in contact to interchange brochures with each other. In this way I try to enlarge the private collection of my and the collection of people I get in contact with.

All brochures shown on my web-page are out of my own collection. I have made photographs of them and made collages as shown on the web-page. More than 2.500 advertisements and more than 1.000 brochures are shown at my web page.

I hope you will enjoy my web-page.

Kind Regards

Hermann Egges
