The Fox Classic Car Collection, housed in the historic Queen’s Warehouse, contains dozens of the world’s most rare and prestigious vehicles. These cars have been collected over a 50-year period by Lindsay Fox, Founder of Australian logistics company Linfox, and donated to a Trust to raise funds for charity and for the public to enjoy.
Lindsay has a passion for classic vehicles, with his collection including models from Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari, Bentley, Volkswagen, Ford, Rolls Royce, MG, Lexus and Nissan between 1923 and 2020. Some vehicles have previously been owned by Ringo Starr, Bing Crosby and Bob Jane to name a few.
The collection is steeped in history, one off prototypes and cars that dreams are made of.

We have a fantastic group of volunteers who operate the Open Day program for visitors at the Fox Classic Car Collection museum.
Many of the volunteers have an amazing knowledge of vehicles or are themselves restorers of fine vehicles. They love to chat and are such nice people that they too are a highlight of the museum experience.
VOLUNTEERS FOR CHARITY
The door takings from the Volunteer Open Day Program are donated to a range of charities. It is through the goodwill and generosity of the volunteers that such donations are possible.
Please contact us if you are interested in becoming one of our volunteers.
"We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the volunteers of Fox Classic Car Collection for the generous donation of $10,000 to The Smith Family in Victoria. The proceeds of your museum tours will make a real difference to children in need.
At The Smith Family, we believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantage.
One in seven Australian children and young people are living in poverty and need support from The Smith Family to make the most of their education. Your generous contribution will support Learning for Life, The Smith Family’s educational support program, which this year reached 33,195 students who live in need, nationally and 7,376 students in Victoria. The Learning for Life program recognises that disadvantaged children need extra support to stay at school and go on to further studies or a job.
Thanks again for your outstanding contribution and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Our men’s shed would be the only service of its kind for men residing in the southern area of the Hume municipality. There are a number of older men in the community who are facing issues associated with significant change, including ageing, health, retirement, isolation, unemployment, disability and separation. Your financial support will assist us to address these issues and facilitate our ability to continue work in our community.
Thank you for forwarding the generous gift. Berry Street is combining three trauma-informed, evidence based projects which we believe will help prevent the cycle of violence, disadvantage and abuse recurring in both current and future generations. Our vision is to raise $2.4 million over three years…. Fox Classic Car Collection’s contribution will help us reach our ambitious goal.
