Phil drive’s wheel deal

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - By CHARLES WADE-PALMER

THERE some­thing in the car tonight – a new owner of Phil Collins’ old mo­tor.

His old fam­ily runaround has sold for more than £8,000 at auc­tion in the Nether­lands.

The singer snapped up the 1959 Austin A35 from his aunt at the height of his ca­reer to stay true to his work­ing-class roots.

The ve­hi­cle re­mained in the fam­ily un­til his record com­pany sold it on his be­half in 2003.

The for­mer Gen­e­sis rocker is a lover of Austins af­ter his dad drove him around in his own when Phil was grow­ing up.
