 "So good to be  rallying again" 

The 51st Annual CHMC Rally, aka the Bush Council Rally, was hosted by Newcastle District Vintage and Classic Car Club in Singleton over the weekend of April 1-4 2022. The most heard comment over the weekend was how good it was to be back at a large rally with historic vehicles and friends from across the State, after the disruptions of the last couple of years. 143 historic vehicles came from every decade 1910-1990, ranging from a group of three Veteran 1911 Hupmobiles, to the early 1990s represented by Ford Capri and HSV SV5000. Rallyists from CHMC clubs across the State journeyed from as far afield as Albury, Coffs Harbour, Narrabri, Griffith, Parkes and many CHMC clubs in between. The CHMC Concours d’Elegance was won by a 1981 DeLorean  and the Mal Mason Shield won by  Tamworth Vintage Car Club

A very well attended CHMC AGM  was held on the Friday evening at which not only the new member clubs that had joined since the 2021 AGM were welcomed, but also 3 new clubs were admitted to membership that evening. Guest Speaker, Matt Cafe, Manager Partnerships and Performance and Regulation and Regulatory Operations at TFNSW, addressed developments with HVS and CVS and took questions from the delegates. DINKUM OIL #18 Has all the results and awards from the 2022 CHMC Annual Rally at Singleton.

                                                                                       THE COUNCIL OF HERITAGE MOTOR CLUBS NSW (CHMC)                                                                                                               REPRESENTS and promotes the interests of HERITAGE, HISTORIC & CLASSIC VEHICLE CLUBS THROUGHOUT N.S.W. 

Members of CHMC Affiliated Clubs own, preserve and restore cars, trucks, motorbikes, buses and tractors that are over 30 years old, i.e. heritage, historic or classic vehicles.  They share one common purpose, to keep alive the sights and sounds of the vehicles and machines that were an integral part of the automotive and transport history of Australia.Some of those vehicles are more than 100 years old, others are from the 1980s, some are rare, some are unique, and many are everyday vehicles from our nation's past. All are examples of our country's automotive culture through time. Heritage and historic vehicles are not still here by accident, they survive because someone has cared for them through time, or someone has rescued them just in time.

CELEBRATING THE CENTENARY DECADE OF VINTAGE MOTOR VEHICLES

VINTAGE MOTOR VEHICLES WERE MANUFACTURED BETWEEN 1919 AND 1930. THIS ERA OF SPANS THE YEARS FROM THE END OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR TO THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THE YEAR 1930 SAW THE END OF AN ERA FOR MANY MOTOR CAR MANUFACTURERS AND DENOTES THE END OF THE VINTAGE PERIOD. Take a look at chmc's video celebrating vintage vehicles on our FAcebook page
