Chairs Report — November 2018

Chairs Report — November 2018 Members of the VCCSA have had a rather busy past few months.  Kicking off with the wonderful Southern Weekend Adventure rally organised by Julian McNeil, we have had lots of opportunities to enjoy our veteran vehicles in the gradually warming weather!  September saw the National TAVCCA Rally and this was followed back to back with the Bay to Birdwood Run.  Our October ...[Read More]

Chairs Report — October 2018

Chairs Report — October 2018 The past week has been a very memorable experience for me, as one of six South Australian participants in the 2018 TAVCCA National Rally in Forbes, hosted by the VCCA-NSW club.  It was just an amazing experience and demonstrates how well these events can come together when the rally organisers listen to feedback and aim to deliver the very best for the 148 entrants tak ...[Read More]

Chairs Report — August 2018 Where have all our veteran cars gone? This was the question I was asking myself recently after viewing some old photos and films which depict various events here in SA that include cars from the Veteran and Edwardian era’s.  I was most interested to find some very desirable marques in all the images – like the circ. 1912 Clement-Bayard (left), but I started to wonder wh ...[Read More]

Chairs Report — August 2018 This weekend saw a small moment for a few veteran vehicles and their owners to get out and enjoy the little bit of sunshine whilst offering a surprise to the public who were lining the streets at the 2018 Willunga Almond Blossom Festival.  It was also great to see one of our newest members – Adam Auditori – turn up with his Vulcan tourer and join in the experience.  Fol ...[Read More]

From the Chairman — AGM Report — July 2018 Another successful year for the Veteran Car Club of South Australia passes us by, and I would like to thank you, the members, for making the last 12 months so memorable. Recently I received this image, a photo of the Renmark Motor Club (Circ 1912) with its members out on an excursion.   They appear to have made good use of the day and felt proud of their ...[Read More]

Chairs Report — June 2018

Chairs Report — June 2018 Dear VCCSA Member, I was recently watching a documentary on the early founding years of the Buick Motor Company and the role of William Durant (pictured) in this process and his desire to develop several motoring manufacturing companies like General Motors and Chevrolet, only to lose everything by 1936 and be totally bankrupt.  It is an interesting story of motoring compa ...[Read More]

Chairmans Report — April 2018

Chairmans Report — April 2018 A good number of our members offered their vehicles for the VSCC Gathering Day in the west parklands.  The morning started with some rain scaring off some possible participants, but by the time most had left the ‘Coffee and Cars’event the weather was getting better all the time.  It is always good to see the veteran vehicles roll up and capture the attention of all th ...[Read More]

Chairmans Report — February 2018

Chairmans Report — February 2018 We are clearly experiencing some interesting weather at the moment.  Hot one day and raining the next!  Such extremes make planning runs and events very challenging.  So, given this fact, it was certainly wise to cancel the Australia Day Run with the 40 degree forecast – it was a very hot Australia Day long weekend all up.  I know many of you were looking forward t ...[Read More]
