I remember when we first set eyes on this incredible transporter a few years ago, whilst search the internet for cool cars. It just was an incredible machine to take in and with the legendary Mercedes Gullwing on the back, it was just an amazing combination.

So as we were in Jay’s Garage taking photographs of his superb collection, we couldn’t believe our eyes as Jay presents it to us. So here are a few photographs we took of it, but we will let Jay explain in more detail as to the history of this beautiful machines.
