Regarding classic cars, here's a fun fact. Automobiles manufactured between 1900 and 1979 are classified as Antique or Classic.
A car is considered a collector car if it was built in 1980 or after.
Classic cars are defined even more strictly by the Classic Car Club of America. Classic vehicles are defined as those manufactured between 1915 and 1948.

We have similar museums as well. I enjoy visiting such places, as I've been interested in the history of auto since childhood. My girlfriend gave me a certificate for my birthday to visit such a place. I had the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane at the British car museum, it was an impressive trip. The advantage of this museum was that you get the experience of driving vintage cars yourself, not just looking
at the exhibits. There`re different collections, from classics to premium, and as someone interested in cars, I was exceptionally curious about everything.

The Gosford Classic Car Museum is now closed.

the following is an excerpt from an article posted on the AUSTRALASIAN PAINT & PANEL website.

It reads:

The museum, which opened in 2016, was closed due to a technicality in a business model which left them unable to claim tax exemptions.

Gosford Classic Cars was established as a showroom for interested buyers to view luxury cars with the museum element of the business being used as a way to generate interest and promote the sale of luxury vehicles.

When the business registered with the ATO in February of 2016, two months before they opened, they registered as luxury car seller and documented the purpose of the museum as being for promotion only.

However, when the ATO audited the business in December of 2016, they decided that the business should be classified as both a luxury car seller and a museum, making it a “dual-purpose venture”.

This change in classification meant that Gosford Classic Cars would be unable to claim luxury car tax exemptions and GST exemptions.

The ATO ordered that the Gosford Classic Car Museum stop using the word museum in their name, stop charging admission, and stop all advertising containing the word ‘museum’.

The closure of the Gosford Car Museum results in the loss of over 40 jobs.

The collection is now open for bidding online and will go up for auction in a simulcast live and online event on the weekend of 6-7 April 2019 at the Gosford Classic Car Museum. Further details can be found here.
