Car Nerd Heaven - MeilenWerk, Stuttgart

Located in a series of re-purposed airplane hangers is Stuttgart's MeilenWerk.
A very cool space that includes facilities for classic and exotic car sellers, auto storage, exotic repair and the V8 Hotel.

Even the parking lot has many interesting vehicles:

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't fit inside this tight cockpit
And the car I'd most like to take home as a souvenir...
...this 1954 Lancia Aurelia B20/GT2500. Moretti hardtop:
fuel filler capsteering column drilled for lightness
it can be yours - only €128,000
