ANDY COLLINS

UK

Andy’s first car, bought in 1983 when he was just 15, was a 1966 Fiat 500, and from there his passion for classic cars was cemented. With ownership of numerous cars of all makes, types and sorts following, over the last 30 years Andy has owned over 300 vehicles, and currently has a small, personal collection of seven Classics.

Brought up in South Buckinghamshire in the UK, Andy has for the last 15 years lived in rural Wiltshire, where the space and lifestyle has enabled him to enjoy his classic car passion to the maximum. His personal garage currently includes a 1985 Lancia Gamma 2500ie Berlina, which has covered a total of just 79miles, and a 1965 Austin Mini which was his grandmother’s from new. With other Lancia’s and British classics in his collection, Andy is kept pretty busy in his vehicular quest for perfection.

A former Chairman of the Lancia Motor Club Ltd, and having been heavily involved in many other one make car clubs over the years, Andy is a walking encyclopaedia of car detail and specification, and has an eye for detail and finish. He has judged at a number of Concours events in the UK, and hosts an intimate annual event of his own, for close friends and invited guests.

Andy has in the past worked in the motor trade, but more recently works in the financial sector in the UK.
