transit man 2A BRITISH man has collected more than 6,000 transit van models since he was inspired by a trip to Spain 40 years ago.

Peter Lee, from Buckinghamshire, bought his first life-sized transit van to travel around Spain for 13 months ‘as a hippie’.

The experience fuelled the former Ford Transit assembly line worker to start his own collection. He has since amassed 7,000 items of transit van memorabilia including toy vans, cookie jars and stress balls.

He displays the quirky collection in a purpose-built museum on the top floor of his home.
