Dear friends, I need some help: I made a car museum and collection page for my website. Here is the result. I hope you can help me to complete this list, and that you can add new links and collections.

Hi Dragon and Martin, these are interesting links and you will find these cars in most of my books, but I meant especially that I am looking for links and comments on the museum and collections list. I hoped I missed a museum and that you can add it, or that there are more private collections. I know more Chinese (private) persons who have a car collection, but I am especially interested to make a list of those collections which are open to public.
