Harry Kersh: I’m Harry, and today we’re gonna take you for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of Europe’s biggest car collections. The 450-plus car collection is owned by businessman Rodger Dudding. He’s been collecting cars for 50 years and has quite the collection of rare rides spanning from 1918 all the way to the present day. Rodger estimates his collection is valued at over $45 million. With so many vehicles, he hired a team to handle the upkeep and eventually turned his collection into a business renting out cars for TV, films, photo shoots, and events.

Rodger: And allegedly it’s the only one or maybe one of two left in the world. This is more comfortable than your favorite armchair at home.
Harry: Okay. That’s a bold claim.
Rodger: If you want to get in it, jump in.
Harry: Jump in a piece of history.
