Toby was born in England where his enthusiasm for fine automobiles started at a young age, preparing his father’s Aston DB 2/4 for concours events, and later using it in hill climbs. He moved to France 25 years ago, and after a couple of years working for the Aston Martin importer, became a classic car broker, mainly for Ferrari. Living in France awakened an interest in the great French marques, and a long learning curve began. Over the years, Toby has discovered some great cars sleeping in France ranging from a Ferrari Daytona Competition to a Talbot Teardrop. Toby now lives on the small island of Malta, where he helps organize races and shows for the thriving classic car community.
