2023 PRE-31 AUTUMN TOUR FOR VETERAN & VINTAGE VEHICLES
The Tour was an outstanding success with 130 vehicles and their owners and passengers hosted at Cowra by Dinosaur Drivers Register, Lachlan Valley Branch, members.
THE SIGHTS AND SCENERY OF THE CENTRAL WEST WERE AT THEIR AUTUMN BEST COLOURS, AND A UNIQUE CROSSING OF WYANGALA DAM BY ALL THE CARS A HIGHLIGHT THAT MADE NATIONAL TELEVISION COVERAGE. THE TOUR WAS SUPPORTED BY A GRANT FROM THE PAUL BUTLER BEQUEST FOR VETERAN & VINTAGE CARS AT THE NATIONAL TRUST. PHOTOS AND REPORTS OF THE TOUR ARE IN CHMC NSW'S FACEBOOK POSTS FOR MAY.

All NSW peak bodies representing historic and classic vehicles have agreed to the content of the Fact Sheet.

CONCERNED ABOUT THE FUTURE FOR HISTORIC VEHICLES?
CHMC monitors developments, trends and issues that affect the future of historic vehicles and their operation. Our contacts, in Australia and internationally, include peak bodies in historic motoring, heritage organisations and government agencies, and through them we obtain factual and reliable information and have opportunities to advocate for the future of historic vehicles.
THE FUTURE OF HISTORIC VEHICLES. Have you read: the FIVA Position Statement on Historic Vehicles and Global Climate Change
OPERATING HISTORIC VEHICLES IN A TIME OF ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE. Have you read the FIVA Environmental Guide, a positive approach towards environmental protection and practical support for environmentally conscious use of historic vehicles.
ELECTRIC DRIVE CONVERSIONS OF HISTORIC VEHICLES. Have you read:
- the FIVA Position Statement on EV Conversions
- CHMC's Position Paper on Conversion of Heritage Vehicles to Electric Drive
e-FUELS FOR HISTORIC VEHICLES? the FIVA Working Group on eFuels monitored successful tests of e-Fuels in vehicles aged from 1901 to the 1970s including a 1922 Aston Martin in the Centenary 2022 Gran Prix; a 1936 Aston Martin raced at the GP Nuvolar; and a VW T1 bus that toured 3,500kms on the 2022 Olympia Rally. Conclusion – “e-Fuel seems to work and did not harm historic vehicles ”. A 1901 Mors and 1904 Covert completed the 2022 London-Brighton without an problem on e-Fuel
THE COUNCIL OF HERITAGE MOTOR CLUBS NSW (CHMC) REPRESENTS AND PROMOTES THE INTERESTS OF HERITAGE, HISTORIC & CLASSIC VEHICLE and MAchinery 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 a 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 their vehicles are more than 100 years old, others are from the 1990s, 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 and history.
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.
