For all our members, you will be affected by the latest round of lockdowns and restrictions. So that you are very clear on what these are, we suggest you read the following website – https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
Despite the lockdown facing most Victorians, a number of our members are getting on with both minor and major restoration work. David Brett is one of those members and he is doing a complete restoration of an early model MGB he has christened “B3” (because it is the 3rd MGB he has bought and restored. ) Here is a sneak peek of it in his garage. I am sure David will keep us updated.
Please send us some pics of what you are doing during this “interesting” time. A new car? Repair work? Restoration” Let us know.
Welcome to our new website. This is all-new from the ground up and will allow us to more easily provide you with a lot more information. This first version will be built on over the coming months, so come back regularly and see what’s new.
We have built a completely new photo library so have a look at some of the new albums. These are being updated with new photos regularly.
If you note any errors or have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Our member Don Woods has done a video on reassembling a MGB engine. Quite well done and you can watch it HERE
For the remainder of the Covid-19 “Lockdown” we will be having our Tuesday Happy Hour Zoom meeting EVERY WEEK on a Tuesday at 5PM. Let John Roker know if you want to join in and he will give you the meeting code.
The Executive Committee met last evening as we face constantly changing circumstances related to COVID-19. It’s impact on the community, the membership demographics and the evolving risks for members participating in meetings and events was considered. It is the collective responsibility of everyone to ensure that we act with a sense of urgency and responsibility to both ourselves and those around us in an effort to minimise the transmission and impact of the virus.
It was therefore decided:
To cancel all club meetings and events until further notice.
We have just launched our new Facebook Group site which is only for members.
This will give you a chance to chat with fellow members about your cars or anything else related to Car Club matters.
(Our existing Facebook Page will continue as a page where the general public can see what is happening with our club.)
Another successful Classic Car Show was held on the Geelong foreshore with 135 entries of high quality classics.
Some great Photos from this event are available HERE.
10 x T Types, 4 x Magnettes, 2 x Y Types and 10 MGBs with their owners met at the Flying Brick Cider for coffee before heading to the Torquay Pub for lunch.
Some Photos from this run are available HERE.
