First the good news, the Falcon Knight is mobile again after fixing the fuel filter bowl, The Suzuki starter has been replaced so that is also mobile but the Wolseley and the Overland are still waiting for me to make time to get them going again.
We have had a couple of busy weekends ,with the Swap meet last week, which in spite of light rain for part of the morning was a good day with twenty odd stalls and a good crowd of buyers very few of whom left empty handed. The Rosevale chopping carnival was held yesterday and attracted a good crowd of VCCA members who all seemed to have a good day out. Wheels to Westbury was held today and we certainly had an interesting selection of cars from a veteran Ford to a brand new Lotus sports car and just about everything in between. This regular type of event seems to be popular with many members these days.
On the subject of events that we run, a couple of us were talking at the Rosevale run about some sort of longish distance, one day events to a town about half a days drive away, a lunch stop and return via a different road a bit like our upcoming run to Villarette only with a bit more distance. This would probably suit our later post war cars more than the older ones but we are here for all members and all ages of car so if you like the idea have a talk to your section events organiser and see if there is sufficient interest.
A couple of different car owners have rung us in the last few weeks asking for advice about selling their cars and as they are all club eligible we are happy to put them in Small Torque and on the website to give our members the details before they are advertised more widely.
Lastly I hope you have all given some thought to the subject of nominations to positions on the committees running our sections. It is vital for our club’s future that we have a turnover of positions to keep the club from stagnating.
Safe motoring, Joe
