JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG This weekend, Max Jones is putting his vast collection of stuff up for Auction. Max has been adding to his collection for more than fifty years and OC Life spent a couple of hours out there last week and didn’t get close to seeing it all! This photo is barely a snapshot of the collection, to appreciate it, you’ll have to make the trip! More photos and information about the clearing sale can be found inside.

Steve Lowcock Manager at Western Range Motorcycles likes the Harley Davidson 2018 Anniversary Street Glide
Kyle Jones, Sales Manager at John Davis Mazda likes the Mazda BT50! The Mazda BT50 offers a Ute for everyone. Whether it is your local tradie, Caravanners, Off-Roaders or for use as your family Car. Mazda BT50 is built tough to take on any task and do it in style and can be used as your workhorse or your weekend warrior. And at just $39,990 driveaway, it’s great value too! The Mazda BT50 boasts car like driving, is ready to tow the big stuff and the carry the heftiest payloads while also ticking the technology box with Sat Nav, Reversing Camera and Bluetooth and USB compatibility. I personally like the Mazda BT50 because it delivers grunt when you need it and is comfortable for any sort of driving, with all the comforts it is hard for you to believe you’re in a ute.
I like this particular bike for a number of reasons, not the least that it looks great. As touring bikes go, it’s also good value for money and great for touring. It has fantastic suspension, plenty of grunt from a 1745cc engine, a great fairing and seat set up and the forward controls all make for a very comfortable ride, especially on long trips. The lockable panniers are also worth mentioning. This particular model is also a limited edition and part of a numbered series for Harley’s Anniversary. Harley Davidsons are legendary and for me, this 2018 Anniversary Street Glide keeps the tradition going in grand style.

Collectors Clearing Sale to the Max Well-known local collector Max Jones, will be putting the hammer down this week on his valued collectors’ items, so we thought we would go and check it out to see what all the fuss was about. Max has been collecting for over 40 years with an eye for detail as he watched his father become a collector. We caught up with Max’s daughter Mel Jones who now has that eye for detail too and who has been helping her dad put the auction together. “His dad was a collector, so he just followed in his dads footsteps really. A lot of this stuff would have ended up as scrap if dad didn’t pick it up.” “He is pretty well known in the auction world. Most people when they collect they collect cars, Furphy’s, spoons, well dad just collects anything.” “Dads dream was to set it up as a Museum but there are too many things to set it up, it’s a big job.” “It has been five months trying to sort it all out for the auction, you couldn’t get into the shed. It was a massive job to get it to where we are now.” The clearing sale for this valued collection will be held this weekend and you can expect to find anything and everything old. “There will be cars, horse drawn, tractors, trucks, garden art, tools, collectable tins, car parts, too many collectables to mention.” “He mostly went to auctions in NSW, I can remember going off to auctions with him when I was about eight. I’ve done it all my life, so I know what a lot of the stuff is.” “He calls it rusty gold, he has been doing it pretty much his whole life. It is starting to get a bit hard, it is pretty emotional getting rid of all this stuff,” Mel said. Like everything old there is a story that goes with it. Here are a few that Mel shared with us; “There is a story behind these two utes, they were brothers and they lived in Cudal. They never got married or had kids and they grew veggies. They both got quite sick and apparently died within a couple of weeks of each other. They left it in their will that the utes were to be sold at auction and the money was to go to the Cudal Hospital, two months later the Hospital closed. These are both in original condition.” “This is a Furphy tank, the boys in the war would come get their water out of these. You might have heard of the old saying, ‘you are telling a Furphy’, well I found out the history behind it. The boys would stand around these things getting a drink and they’d be telling tales, this was later than called ‘Furphy’s’. “This is unique, it is an old whirly bird that you put on the roof. Oh, and I would love that car, it was a Diplomat’s car from the US Embassy so it is rather opulent. “The green Mercedes is dad’s favourite, he bought it in 79 and has only had one owner,” she said. The weekend is set to be massive with collectors coming from near and far to see what Max has been hiding all of these years. It is an amazing collection and if you want to see it for yourself head out to the Clifton Grove property, TODAY, Thursday between 105pm for the inspection then things will go under the hammer on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The Auction will commence on the 16th through to the 18th of March. So be sure to go have a look!
