      That's $850k AUD, so $633k USD and $856k CAN.

      And yes, that MR2 is .

      The museum definitely looks like an interesting place to visit:

      I feel like that e30 m3 is a steal for 66k the way those cars are being priced.

      That Silver Pininfarina Coupe looks like a Lancia but I cannot remember which one....Flaminia, maybe?
      Touareg Hybrids are pretty nice, and the warm fuzzies I felt while driving the hybrid was actually the fingers of all of the German tax payers trying to reach into my wallet to get their money back. (Brendan@bwalkauto)

      Apparently:

      Gosford Classic Car Museum was born out of a passion for the artistry of automobiles. Covering an expanse of more than 11,000 square metres, the museum began accumulating classic vehicles in June 2015.

      It now showcases approximately 450 cars, with a total value of over $70 million. 95% of the vehicles in the collection have been bought within Australia, with the remaining cars coming from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

      One of the museum’s first purchases was a collection of 53 cars from the Rambler Museum of Western Australia that were previously owned by John Ivy.

      ...

      Museum owner, Tony Denny, grew up in North Sydney and lived much of his life in Europe. His first classic car was a 1955 Ford Zephyr. Tony has had a long-standing passion for classic cars and has always kept a few in his personal collection.

      Tony decided to invest in his passion and create a museum so that others could appreciate the automotive world he loves so much. The opening of the museum was a major highlight in Tony’s life. He views cars as a work of art, and can find something beautiful in just about every car ever made.

      Tony chose the Central Coast as the site of his museum because of the beauty and relaxed lifestyle of the area. He is also developing property on the Central Coast, with 450 apartments currently in various stages of development.

      That is a fine collection of automobiles (although the MR2 and the stretch '06 Chrysler 300C made me do one of these )

      Displays are very cramped. Looks like a dealership, not a museum.
      Expose your cracks and love will fill them.

      Yeah. They should sell some cars to make more room.
