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]

Chairmans Report — October 2017

Chair’s Report — October 2017 I am very pleased to report that the extremely busy month of September has now passed and what a busy month.

Chairmans Report — September 2017

Chair’s Report — September 2017 Spring is finally here and, hopefully, we can now leave behind a rather cold winter. The last few months haven’t provided the ideal conditions for venturing out in our antique vehicles. Given this, let’s hope the weather fines up and keeps warm as we look towards a number of significant events where our vehicles will be eagerly awaited and actively involved. T ...[Read More]
