Commentary
Although the Museum collection covers a wide period and extends to the present day, Scottish manufacturers are well-represented in the exhibition, with some excellent display boards charting the industry’s history.

Exhibits include cars manufactured by Albion, Argyll, and Arrol-Aster, together with three Hillman Imps, built at Linwood near Glasgow.  Also of interest is the rare Argyll GT, originally launched in October 1983, and a beautifully restored three-wheel Stanhope Bramham, built in Leeds in 1923.
