Title: Family battle over 2m car collection
Post by: Neil on 24 February, 2015, 04:52:34 PM
In The Times today:

A classic car collector has taken his son to court, insisting that he return four vehicles worth a total of 2.2 million. Ernst Hrabalek, who lives in Vienna and Thailand, lent the Lancia Stratos rally cars to his son, Christian, 37, of Belsize Park, north London, who says they were a graduation gift. The High Court was told Ernst Hrabalek lent the vehicles to his son, a car designer, to exhibit them at a Berlin show in 2011. The hearing continues.

For most parents its the reverse problem of being left to store stuff.

Actually David, I think it is both .... my offspring have become very good at taking the good bits and then bringing the crap to be stored!!

speaking as a parent and a son , Josh happily dumps his "crap" everywhere , I also find that things of mine often go "astray" , however he is at that age where his hair has to be perfect and he always smells nice even though going for a shower is like some sort of punishment to him , this in one way saves me running out of deodorant and if on a rare occasion I do my hair there is always products available , living close to my parents is handy too , I often find myself storing things at their house and "forgetting about it" unless its Lancia related I do get reminded "when are you gonna shift this......" however Lancia's or parts of have their own visa and are granted permission to stay  ;D
