NSW FLOODS  March 2021

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the severe flooding in NSW. To those who have lost homes, businesses, equipment and livestock we extend our sympathy. We also send our deep appreciation to those who strove to protect life and property during the flooding, and those who now assist with recovery and reconstruction. To our Clubs’ members who are also SES, RFS and other emergency services volunteers, stay safe, and those who are working in the relief centres, we thank you. Whether it be floods or fire, when their communities and those nearby need help CHMC clubs step in to assist in various ways. Please support our clubs when they are fund-raising or such for flood related aid to help them help those hit hardest at this time.

CHMC has prepared a list of resources and information for those whose historic vehicles or antique machinery may have been impacted by floods, please share this with owners of water damaged vehicles. See our Publications page for WATER AFFECTED OR FLOOD DAMAGED HISTORIC VEHICLES AND ANTIQUE MACHINERY.

                                                                                       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.
