Intrepid Graeme French has travelled 9,000 miles to drive his late grandfather's vintage car after finding it had been saved by a British museum.<br />
<br />
Graeme, 77, recalled sitting in the the 1925 Bean 14 motor with grandfather Thomas Woodall as a young boy.<br />
<br />
After Mr Woodall suffered from ill-health in the 1940s he put the red car in a garage he owned in Smethwick in Birmingham where it remained untouched for years.<br />
<br />
It was only when the lease on the garage expired and his widow was reminded of the car that it finally left the family.
