Ian Dodd was a long-serving member of the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia, Victoria Branch. As a member of the famous Victorian Syme family, Ian had a lifelong association and love for
Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars. As well as owning many ‘full-size’ cars, Ian spent a lifetime collecting models of both marques from many sources, with his final tally exceeding 200 models in all
scales. At the time of his passing Ian bequeathed this impressive collection to the Victoria Branch, who have entrusted them to the SHRF’s care. The models are now a prime display feature at Bill
Allsep House in Rowville, Melbourne.
