    Sultan of Brunei Car & Driver

    I remember reading a Car & Driver issue back in 96 or 97 dedicated to the most part to the Sultans Car Collection. If anyone were to have a copy , some scans would be greatly appreciated.

    I have attached a link displaying a sample of his cars but not all of the cars that were featured on the mag

    http://www.classicdriver.com/uk/magazine/3200.asp?id=10495

    Kind Regards

    Re: Sultan of Brunei Car & Driver

    I dont have the article but I do have some additional information. The article in classic car is a bit incomplete.

    The Sultan, who is actually a very nice guy, did buy a lot of cars. But it was his brother Jeffery who was the real quantity car buyer and was finally ordered to stop buying them anymore.

    Over the years Jeffery bought more than a two thousand Rolls Royces. When they arrived he would have the wheels changed and the original wheels tossed into the water outside the harbor. It has to be the only reef built from Rolls Royce wheels on the planet.

    The car collection is nothing compared to the parties they used to hold. During one Birthday party in the 80's they fired off all of the British built Greyhound surface to air missiles that are stationed below the place grounds.

    Like toys? they got em!
