Hello to everyone, As this magazine goes to print we have already had several runs and display days, All American Day, runs down south, and long weekend runs as well. If you are new to the club, well, this is what we do — we drive and enjoy our cars.
Thanks for all your help in 2017 to our committee members and most of all, our regular members who support and help out with activities and attending events put on for the club for everyone’s enjoyment.
Looking forward to another year of cruising, club social events and weekend activities. My ‘69 Goat is progressing along at a slow but rewarding pace, I hope to have it back on the road sometime this side of June.
I hope everyone has booked for the Tumut Nationals to be held over Easter, this looks to be another great weekend away with loads of cars and great Saturday night entertainment.
Hope to see you all soon,聽.

As we step into 2018, I hope everybody had a safe and happy holiday season. 2017 finished on a high with our cruise to the Balhannah oval for the annual Hot Rod picnic which the SA chapter incorporates into our annual Christmas get together. It was a great turn out for the organizers as this event was at a new venue which I personally thought was a great move.
On a sadder note 2017 brought the loss of a few past members. Peter Mosby was the secretary of the chapter when I joined the club, Peter had a ‘81 turbo T/A. Lorraine Moody (Ian’s wife) passed away (they had one of the nicest ‘39’s in Australia), and finally Paul Bennett who had a ‘74 formula. On behalf of our club, I would like to offer our condolences to these member’s families.
With the new year ahead, we still have many cruises, general meetings and social gatherings on offer for any members or future members to attend. Coming up soon is the All American Day which is one not to miss, Cruise on Tanunda, and the McLaren Vale Festival. Make sure you link up with these events on Facebook to keep up-to-date with times, etc, and what’s happening in the future.
See you on the road.
Our monthly meets are held at the Como hotel on the first Tuesday of every month at 8pm. The keener ones turn up at 7pm for a meal.
We went through a bad patch with a number of popular runs being cancelled, mainly due to the huge workload when 500+ vehicles turn up. Luckily enough a couple of organizations have come through with 2 new runs — Perth Poker Run in February and the Council of Motoring Clubs Classic Car Show at the Ascot Raceway 18 March.
Looking forward to catching up then.
