Sydney Hot Rod Show 2007
30th June - 1st July 2007
This year the club was represented by five members, namely:
Neil Baker - 1932 Ford Coupe
Tom Dennerley - 1934 Ford Coupe
Tony Godber - 1923 Ford T Bucket
Glen Kinsela - 1932 Ford Coupe
John Read - 1937 Ford Sedan
Tom set up his car in an individual display having been selected in the Maguires Top Ten last year. The other cars were placed in our club display which took on a new look with our updated lighting, etc.
The show itself was well supported and there were a lot of top quality vehicles on display. The very high standard made it difficult to earn an award trophy, however, three club cars did have some success.
Tony Godber got 4th T Bucket, Glen Kinsela was awarded the "Coolest Ride" trophy, and John Read got Top Sedan in the Hot Rod category.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS.
Mudgee Run 2007
For the past four years, members have made the trip to Mudgee for the June long weekend club run. This year there were 13 club rods and 3 rods owned by local hot rodders in attendance.
This year the heavy rain made the trip from Sydney a very wet one; however, everyone arrived safely and settled into the traditional bench session at the caravan park camp kitchen and devoured quite a number of delivered pizzas.
The rain cleared by Saturday morning and although the local markets were cancelled, everyone enjoyed browsing the local shops. In the afternoon, we drove to Gulgong where we took part in the local festival parade.
Saturday night we took over the camp kitchen at the caravan park and treated ourselves to lamb on a spit with real baked vegetables.
The sun was shining on Sunday and whilst some members took the opportunity to visit the local wineries and the newly completed Mudgee Brewery, a few went bush to look at some vintage tin.
Another first class meal on Sunday night was followed by a short presentation by the park management. They selected Gerry Borg's 1932 Coupe to receive the perpetual Park Choice trophy. A special thanks was given to members John and Sue Firth for organising the weekend.
Monday it was all over and everyone packed up and headed back home. Another great club weekend was over for another year.
Lazy Winter Run 2007
Two club members, Dick Bushell and Bert Weingott attended the Coffs Harbour run organised by the Mid North Coast Hot Rod Club and the run lived up to its name with 57 entrants enjoying a laid-back, easy going and relaxing three days.
Friday saw rodders arriving and setting up tents and vans or settling into on-site cabins at the Park Beach Caravan Park. A short cruise to the Fishing Club scheduled for the late afternoon was cancelled due to heavy rain, but the rest of the Friday night's entertainment was not dampened by the rain, with the complementary welcome BBQ & drinks for all who entered and the ladies cocktail party, which just blended into a memorable bench session in the hall at the Park.
Saturday commenced with a show n shine at home base till noon and than a short observation run to the Big Banana for lunch and the Toboggan Challenge. Then it was back to the park for a little socialising and 'lazing' around until 7pm when everyone enjoyed a sit-down meal and live entertainment down at the Hoey Moey.
Sunday started early with a complementary brekkie, then presentations and an auction, then it was farewells to close a top run for all those who attended.
TO THE ORGANISING CLUB - MID NORTH COAST HOT ROD CLUB WELL DONE.
