Juha Kankkunen, four-time winner of the World Rally Championship, has never given an "outsider" access to his private car collection — until today.
Absolutely marvelous. Made my evening!

Very nice collection indeed! As it is kept private until now, presumably all the cars belong to Juha. I wonder how much they are collectively worth, and how he could afford them all? Rally drivers were never very highly paid in his day (nor are they now, come to that).
But why do journalists feel they have to include stupid comments like: "From the early '80s to the mid-'90s, Kankkunen could justifiably claim to be the fastest driver on the planet." No, he wasn't, nor to his credit did he ever claim to be AFAIK. He was certainly very good but he never dominated the sport the way some others managed to do. So why did Alistair Weaver write that?

I would have sworn I saw that collection before but now I see the article is from January 2012
Nevertheless great collection by a very very good rally driver
