So you think that your pride and joy sitting in your garage is the best thing money can buy? Well, here's what this man does with all his riches. He's got a collection of over 7,000 cars which includes 604 Rolls Royces, 574 Mercedes-Benzes, 452 Ferraris, 382 Bentleys, 209 BMWs, 179 Jaguars, 134 Koenigseggs, 21 Lamborghinis, 11 Aston Martins, and 1SSC.

Some of the cars owned by this guy who is the ruler of that tiny oil-rich state just a little north-west of you.

And here's the top 10 most expensive ones:

Makes me want to cry when I look at my scruffy Proton Satria 1.3L parked forlornly outside my "stately mansion":

Oh well, I can always dream, can't I?
Sooo, back to my slot-car garage where I can at least say that I have some exotics which he hasn't got:

I'm guessing the Sultan Of Brunei. If you'd ever been there you would know why he has all those cars to sit and look at.

OK you can have a beer at Shell's Panaga Club or at the "yacht" club in KB but that is about it.

Of course it doesn't say how many are in Brunei or how many in Monte Carlo. Yes he has an airline Royal Brunei and bought his daughter an A340 for her birthday. I get socks!

How about this him and two wives in the same picture. Tiger eat your heart out!

Many years ago a friend of mine did the dentistry for the whole Royal family, friends and eunuchs. He was a dental technician and flew out there 3 times a year with a top dentist. Polish probably !! He was driving (My friend) a Ferrari Boxer with the proceeds.

Sorry, I'll clarify that comment. With that collection, why would he want an Aussie Ford or Holden? Unless he needs a taxi or two. And let's face it, if he did he'd go for a London black cab, surely.

Well if it his collection, much rather see his collection of Dauer Porsches which includes a road registered version of the 962LM. I believe he has some of the only RHD model of cars ever made or of limited numbers, like the fingers on one hand limited numbers, 2 being the only RHD Merc CLK GTRs in coupe and roadster form ever made.
If it doesn`t have wheels and an engine it`s not sport!

No, but its about time someone here produced something world class. We have the ability. The world market is there. Lets face it Holdens and Commodores last 100,000 k's and literally start to fall apart.

The last commodore I bought lasted 3 years and had to trade it in, never again will the General get my $$.

Oh yer and then there was the mindblowing HB Torana.......

C'mon... Current crop of local cars are hardly up to the standard of what is already in his collection. And London cabs are quite simply a very practical design for a Taxi. Not putting anything down.

As far as what I currenly own... 82 Ford LTD 6, 83 Ford LTD V8, '95 Ford LTD 6, '97 Kia Sportage (Ford design, Bosch electrics, Karmenn assembly) and a '98 Mitsubishi Lancer MR. And will soon be in the market for a toy of some description, although (sigh) it'll have to be a cheap one. Yeah ok, the first three are stretched (tackky I know, but they're the workhorses)

it would be nice to own all of them but would since he would not have driven them all to enjoy them I cant really see the point on owning that many. But this is coming from someone who does not like to drive his seirra as it might get a stone clip or dirty

Conversely, why would anyone buy an Osterero or Racer slot racing car and keep them in their display case instead of racing them? :lol:

If you want to know, his collection is parked in five aircraft hangars near The Empire Hotel. Step inside and you are sure to be lost among the herd of cars that are arranged according to types and brands. Total value of the cars assessed at over US$5 billion!!! :lol:
