ABOUT THE COLLECTIONS OWNER
Alan began collecting at the age of 7 years old. He didn’t have a favourite model out of his collection as he appreciated each and everyone of them. The 3000+ Collection held a special spot in his study which was mainly Alan’s domain. He was protective about his models and would keep the blinds closed to avoid strangers passing by looking in and to protect the appearance of the models.
Alan kept a detailed log book of each and every one of his purchases including the cost, condition and their descriptions. The love of cars came to Alan at a young age as his aunt worked in a Tri-ang Toy Factory where she would give him numerous toys for his birthday including the likes of Trucks & Cranes. His father was also a collector so it was natural for Alan to have a flow of interest. As a young child, Alan travelled from England to Australia overland and passed through numerous countries where he collected a vast amount of his models. Majority of the collection originates from England, Australia and the US
The entire collection is cataloged. Please contact the Gregsons office if you require a copy.
