It is Eng Kim’s dream to have a classic car collection. His prized possession at the moment is a 1978 Mini, which is in good running condition. During his off days, he enjoys being intimately dirty with his cars; opening their hoods and going under the cars to carry out maintenance work, and of course driving them cross-country where they shine on the open road. More so, he believes it is all about owning milestones in the history of the automobile industry.
