All cars are either owned by Russian car salesman or on consignment for sale. It's the only car yard in Australia where your charged at the door to look at his stock.

The last time I went to Rod Hadfields Hot Rod Museum it was still run by Rod then and paid the $5 to look around he was that tight he wouldn't even turn the lights on.

Definately worth going.
The bloke who founded it was a used car salesman in Europe who specialised in selling cars into Eastern (Soviet) Europe. When the Soviet Union collapsed he made a fortune, then sold his business for a bigger fortune.
He returned home to the Central Coast looking for something to invest his money in.
He came to realise that a high return could be in classic and modern high performance cars so he decided to open his museum.
I think his wisest move was to have everything for sale tosupplement the income from admission charges. This gave him an extra income stream and turned over his exhibits so there is always something new to see.
He has many cars there from other high-end car retailers: Green "Twiggy" Muria from Duttons; Silver Porsche RS from Classic Throttle Shop; blue GT40 Continuation from Oldtimers Australia.
It's a great car museum.

Yes David, if you enjoy seeing a variety of cars, it is worth going. His intention however was never to open a 'museum' that was an after thought. The entry fee is his pocket change, money is made in the consignment fees and the profit made selling off purchased cars, he's definitely not interested in paying what a cars worth so as to acquire it and keep it preserved so as the public may enjoy it, that is a museum. Selling cars to profit and consigning cars for a fee makes it a 'car yard' and makes him an, all but savvy, car salesman! If I sound jaded it may be because the price asked to acquire my car was retail, yet even though he was more than interested the purchase price would have to have been the lower end of wholesale.

I can understand your frustration if you have tried doing business with him. Sounds like a typical used car salesman.
But ,I can also understand his business model and think it's a good idea for a car museum. Look at the Powerhouse, Art Gallery or any museum, they all have constantly changing exhibitions to give people a reason to come back. I think by just relying on just tickets, souveniers and a food sales the museum wouldn't survive.
When I win Lotto next week, I might just go down and buy that Overlander if it's still there. If I can get a reasonably deal.
David

I think Ted Bullpit must have ordered that Overalnder new.
Have you ever seen the list of accessories in it?
Dual long range fuel tanks.
Independent fuel crossover pumps to move fuel from one tank to another.
Engine oil cooler
Transmission oil cooler.
Both coolers are mounted behind the black patches in the front guards and are fan assisted I believe.
Pioneer component sound system.
Extra fuel gauges for the long range tanks
Other extra gauges (engine and transmission temp?)
Half tonne alloy bullbar
Fog lights mounted at 45 degrees
Driving lights
There's a CB in there somewhere too.
Overhead console with enough switches and indicator lights to fly a jumbo jet (apparently the original owner was a pilot)
I'd love it, but I'd seriously consider removing some of the extras.
It only has one fault, it's a Kingswood, not a Sandman, which means it's no good for a surfer. More suited too a landlubber tradie like me. LOL

Time to "tell 'em their dreamin" if it's only the $2 lottery, you still couldn't afford it! You guys need a car yard/museum. Even without a sale, a slow Sunday's door takings would buy you a few dozen $20 lottery tickets. πŸ˜„

First prize is 100 grand but you might get the jackpot and that would be a few Mill!..:)

How much has he got on this Overlander?

It was in Unique cars for $118,000 in early 2015, then it eventually dropped to $85,000 or so.
Then it was sold through a Shannons auction for $45 or $49,000 about 12 months ago, which is when I believe the museum got it.
I reckon they'd probably have $100,000 on it, which is why I'd only buy it if I won an absolute fortune.

You guys have learnt nothing. David is assuming he'd sell it for $100k and Al needs to realise his chance of winning jackpot on top of the $100k is less than Russian adopting him and leaving entire collection in his will!

Ah yes, you're right.
But I do like the idea of inheriting it all. There's a green Muira and a blue GT40 continuation in there I'd like as well.
BUT, now that Al has a ticket in the $2 lottery he has a much bigger chance of winning than before he bought the ticket.
Anyway, he hasn't got a chance, I'm winning Lotto next week.
