John’s story

I recently visited a motor museum with my About Me support worker in Sparkford, Somerset.

We got to see about 400 old cars and a few old motor bikes with side cars, it was really interesting. I saw a big posh car built around the 1900’s. In the past, the only driver of this car had been the company boss. He was worth millions of pounds but we weren’t allowed to touch it though!

Alongside the old cars, which our fathers and families drove when we were younger, we also saw a car from the film maker who made Jaws. The car next to it was an early Mini that I remember seeing with my father in the 1960’s. It was very beautiful.

I wish we’d had more time to see them all but it’s such a big place with so much to see. We did leave some time to go and see the motorbikes upstairs. I sat on the newest one and had my photo taken. If I was not deaf and blind then I would have ridden it out of there! Good Life!
