Independence Day Run

Posted on September 16, 2018 at 12:25 AM

Saturday 7th July 2018


Our Independence Day event for 2018 went very well with a good turnout of members and cars.

Meeting at Krispy Kremes was a grand experience and well worth the visit. It was my first time and thinking this is only a doughnut place was far from correct. They do so much else to satisfy thirst and hunger, I was impressed.

Leaving Krispy Kremes we turned the ...

Posted on September 16, 2018 at 12:15 AM

Leaving home at around 8.15 am on the Wednesday prior to the weekend of the National Meet we found it necessary to take 2 vehicles due to the amount of National Meet items required to be transported to Renmark.

Sunday 18th March 2018


Although we did not attend breakfast due to being seconded to marshalling and public address duties a small group gathered at Vili’s for the morning meal.

The Historic Motor Vehicle Gathering looked a little threatened at first with rain looming and a general lack of attendees but around 10 am, the official start time, the heavens cleared and vehicles of all breeds rolled in.

First and foremost at this event are the Veteran and Vintag...

Model A Breakfast Run Report

Posted on September 16, 2018 at 12:05 AM

The usual early start for the Model A Club Breakfast Run gave us a chance to try out our new LED headlamps on the 1933 Roadster and they were excellent.

However we arrived at the Triple C Clubrooms around 7.15 am and after some light hearted discussion with others we left for the mandatory observation run which took us around the local area – down to Brighton Road and through the back blocks of Morphettville and back to Clark Avenue.

We sat at the breakfast table with other...

Milang 2018


Sunday 21st January was supposed to be the slight cool change after temperatures of 42 plus degrees but at 35° it was still damn hot.

We and 6 others had registered for the Milang event so to make it comfortable for Shirley, myself and the 1939 Mercury we opted for a run through the hills to Milang rather than freeways and hot, main, traffic light infested thoroughfares.

As at Para Hills West we are at the opposite end of the world to Milang we l...

Posted on November 5, 2017 at 1:40 AM

Saturday July 1st 2017

A small band of members arrived at Joe and Beverley’s holiday home for this year’s Independence Day lunch. The weather was a perfect winter’s day to celebrate. The area was decked out in American flags, pictures and other red, white and blue items.

We started with pumpkin soup which is always a favourite. On the table were lollies in glasses, blue coconut ruff balls, white milk bottles and red raspberries which disappeared quite quickly. H...
