For anyone who’s ever wanted to get their hands a Batmobile, the kind the Caped Crusader drove in the cult 1960s TV series, this weekend could be the best chance.
Glen Jennings, who is closing down the Lost in the 50s retro museum at Cameron Park, said he expected the replica superhero vehicle to be the piece that attracted the most interest when hundreds of items to go under the hammer this weekend.
Mr Jennings, an accomplished collector who has had accumulated everything from vintage cars to toys and trinkets over 35 years and has displayed them at his Cameron Park museum, has decided to move on.
He opened his collection to the general public for the final time on Friday before an auction, with only registered bidders allowed, takes place on Saturday and Sunday.
It’s the first of three auction events, the others to follow in November and December, in which he plans to sell all but a few of his favourite pieces.

A 1981 DeLorean (the time machine from the Back to the Future films), a 1963 Harley Davidson topper scooter, a 1958 Century Coronado timber boat and a 1957 Rockola jukebox are some of the items Mr Jennings expects to attract great interest.
“All up across this weekend it’s just under 700 [items],” he said.
“I’ve got 90 cars, motorbikes and bits and pieces and the rest is high-end memorabilia.
“It’s a big undertaking – massive.”
