KESWICK, UNITED KINGDOM - JANUARY 25: *** EXCLUSIVE *** Peter Nelson pictured with the Batmobile at Peter Nelson's Motor Museum on January 25, 2011 in Keswick, England. In just a few weeks some of the world's most famous cars will be for sale on ebay. The collection of TV and film greats includes Kit from the cult 1980's television series Knightrider, starring the young David Hasselhoff, the world's largest single collection of Bat Mobiles and the only two A-Team vans from the original television series in existence. The unique collection also showcases movie greats such as the time travelling DeLorean driven by Michael J. Fox in the Back To The Future trilogy, Mad Max's post-apocalyptic V8 Interceptor, the number 53 love bug Herbie, as well as Laurel and Hardie's 1921 Ford Model T. Much loved British offerings includes the Harry Potter Ford Anglia, the Trotter brother's three-wheeled Reliant Regal, Mr Bean's mini, Patrick McGoohan's Lotus Super Seven from the cult 60's show The Prisoner and the Lotus Elan driven by Diana Rigg in the hit series The Avengers. Incredibly the collection is housed in a small museum, called Cars of the Stars in the little town of Keswick, Cumbria 15 miles from junction 40 of the M6 motorway. Museum owner Peter Nelson, 59, has spent one million pounds of his own money on the car collection, which he earned through his work as a dental surgeon. He even placed his family home on sale at one point so he could afford to buy Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The film and television celebrity cars are now insured for two million pounds.
