For 37 years me and my family were locating, restoring and collecting antique cars and motorcycles, resulting in an unique collection of †85 great historic cars, trucks and bikes.The items differ from the "Peugeot" motorcycle of 1914 (which was left by French army troops in Arkhangelsk in 1918) to 1977 "GAZ-13" "Chaika", the official government limousine that was presented to The Patriarch of Russia Pimen by the KPSU General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev.
The cars from my collection have been shot in movies like "Hello! I'm your Aunt!", "The "Cooperation" Operation" and many other (more then 70!).
After few years of hard paperwork and endless waiting I have been finally given a 1gectar (10000 m) piece of land for the purpose of building "The Museum of antique Cars and otorcycles" - the first of it's kind in Russia. I would like to state, that it will be actually the first private museum in Russia since 1917. What we see here is the actual rebirth of the tradition of engaging the necessary funds by the private initiators in great purpose ofЪ keeping and maintaining the national culture heritage
