Australian Barn Finds: Miles Felstead’s Classic and Vintage Car Collection



This video is a tribute to my father’s collection as it stood when he passed away in 2023 following a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of just 72. Cars, bikes, boats and aircraft were a huge part of dad’s life, and his true passion. Like most collectors, his enjoyment came from the chase. Finding that rare project, or rare part for that project. It was a hobby with no end, and to some extent I’ve been bitten with the same bug.

In this video you’ll see over 50 vehicles in the collection, in various states of repair, and a large variety of makes and models. This video is a long one, so I’ve divided it into chapters if there are specific cars you’re interested in.
