David Groom's Collection
Lifelong Standard enthusiast David Groom hails from Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. His current collection not only comprises the two commercials, a 10 van and the Atlas Caravanette shown here, but also a fine collection of other Standards of all ages, most of which are shown below.
Fortunately, David's son, Harry, has caught the same bug and looks forward to the day when he can pilot some of the Groom fleet to Standard events.
If David or Harry would like to send me any information about this splendid collection of cars or photos of the remainder, I will gladly include them here.
You can see larger versions of all these photographs just by clicking on them.
