More than 250 items of motoring art and motorsport memorabilia will be available for the first time at Perth Speed Fest on Sunday 13 December at an auction held in the Gary Miocevich Rare and Dangerous Pavilion.
Perth Speed Fest Event Director Greg McNeil said that the ‘Ultimate Man Cave Auction’ is the perfect opportunity for enthusiasts to kit out their place or special space.
“The York Motor Museum has a huge selection of terrific posters, prints and pictures up for sale, with more to come,” Mr McNeil said.
During the past year, the York Motor Museum has undergone extensive renovations and the museum now has a fresh, modern look.
York Motor Museum owner Peter Briggs said the framed posters, prints and pictures once adorned the walls of the museum, and more celebrity items would be added to the catalogue before the event.
“The items are part of a 30 year collection with some prints numbered by the artist, some are rare and valuable and others are damaged — there will be many bargains!” Mr Briggs said.
“Everyone’s got a garage, shed or a man cave - it’s time for these items go to a new home and be appreciated by new owners.”
Mr Briggs said that he expected some items to go for as little as $10, with many being sold for under $100. The illustrated auction catalogue will be available from www.perthspeedfest.com.
“I’m looking forward to the Perth Speed Fest – it’s terrific to have a total celebration of motoring and an event that brings likeminded people together,” Mr Briggs said.
The Perth Speed Fest ‘Ultimate Man Cave Auction’ will begin at 11am on Sunday 13 December at Perth Motorplex in the Gary Miocevich Rare and Dangerous Pavilion.
Part proceeds will go to the Sideffect, a charity set up to raise awareness of the dangers of synthetic drug use.
