If later this month you find yourself walking about Down Under, where water swirls counterclockwise and Christmas is in the middle of summer, you might check in on the auction of 48 collector cars from the Gosford Classic Car Museum, Australia’s largest automotive museum.

Pickles Auctions will hold the sale May 26 at its facility in Belmore, Sydney, the second time it has teamed with the museum for an “Ultimate Classic Car Auction.”

Among the offerings will be such European collectibles as a 1973 Aston Martin V8, a 1927 Rolls-Royce 20 HP, a 1981 Porsche 911 Turbo, a 1954 Austin Healey 100/4, a 1965 Alvis TE 21, a 1948 Delahaye 148L, a handful of the more-affordable Ferraris and a pair of Lamborghinis, a Countach 5000QV and a Diablo SV.

There will be a broad selection of home-market Australian cars, including a few Holdens, among them Torana performance cars, and some U.S. imports with a twist, such as a 1972 Chrysler Charger, a 1975 Ford Landeau, a 1978 Ford Falcon XC Cobra and a couple of Chrysler Valiants. Also representing the U.S. are Corvettes, Mustangs and a 1930 Packard, among others.
