Details

This is a lifetime’s collection by one lady, Miss Rogers of Trefnanney near Welshpool. She has collected and assembled a piece of motoring par excellence, since her father gave her two model cars for a birthday present as a young girl.

Marques include Bugatti, Bentley, Mercedes and Rolls-Royce cars together with Grand Prix and World Land Speed Record breakers, buses, trams and vans of every description. Two superstar models - over three feet long – reign over their lesser subjects. One is a Singer Le Mans – a replica of a car, Miss Rogers owned and drove for forty years until 1998.. The second, Madame Cloette, was probably the forerunner of Brum – a feisty car hero of children’s TV in the Nineties.

More than just model cars – Cloverlands is a sublime piece of motoring social history, lovingly compiled by an early motorist. Miss Rogers not only collected, but built and commissioned, models large and small. She visited Le Mans and the German Nurburgring and was a member of the Veteran Sports Car Club for many years.
