I have been away from this site for a while as I have been using Google+ for updated artwork from various events I have attended in the past. Look for me in Google+ by using #mymotorways
Here are few samples of some of the things I have been posting of late:
27 years ago, James Hull started his dentistry business in a small town in Wales. Today his dental empire reigns across 50 locations across Great Britain, tweaking the teeth of self-conscious Britons to the tune of nearly 7 million pounds per year ($11.8 million) and a business value of nearly 90 million pounds ($152 million). There’s a lot of money to be made, evidently, in overthrowing a British stereotype. Mr. Hull — cricketer, cancer survivor (3 times!), and self-confessed workaholic — spent this fortune quietly amassing one of the UK’s largest car collections: a whopping 543 cars, scurried away in an airy, skylight-laden warehouse in Hertfordshire, north of London.
The Special Operations division will move the collection to its historic Browns Lane home in Coventry, approximately 70 miles northwest of Hertfordshire. Jaguar plans to leave the collection intact — it won’t divest itself of any of the vestigial brands of the once-noble British automobile industry. No doubt Jaguar will begin trucking its historic models to press events and unveilings across the world, to dazzle the journalists who might view the upcoming XE this September. Surely, a rare aluminum-bodied XK120 should do that job well. –
