Conway Garage was owned by Alec Broome. He began his career in the Sunbeam Experimental Division and was a mechanic who worked on the Sunbeam 1000hp car that broke the land speed record in 1927, reaching speeds of over 203mph. Cue race car noise!

We love our 'buz's here (and our trolleybuses of course). Here is a lovely watercolour in our collection but of course we have our little fleet running around the museum too!

Exploring the Black Country can be a difficult when people aren't sure where it is! Luckily there is a way to tell, because the Black Country is where a Black Country mon (or wench) says it is!
