See photos from the Rally on our Gallery page and the Rally video on the CHMC's Facebook 

CHMC's Annual Rally for 2021 brought together over 100 historic vehicles from 24 affiliated clubs across NSW.

Oldest, a 1913 Little roadster, youngest, a 1988 Mitsubishi Magna, and lots from each decade in between.

A wonderful weekend of rallying and meeting up with old friends and talking historic cars with new ones

Excellently hosted by the Temora Antique Motor Club. 

Congratulations to the Mal Mason Shield winners -  Bellbird Workers Automobile Restorers Club

Message from the FIVA President
The FIVA General Committee, at our first physical General Committee meeting for a year, in Turin in mid-July 2021 discussed extensively that our leitmotiv is to uphold not only the culture of mobility, but also the social life that has characterised the automobile and motorcycle since their earliest days. Around no other industrial product is there such an active club life.
We can’t ignore the fact that we – FIVA and its members – must put even more effort into lobbying. The transition from fossil to alternative fuels is irreversible: as FIVA we accept this, and indeed support the drive for cleaner air. But what we are working on is a unified positioning to gain global recognition for our sector and its great cultural, social and economic significance.
Without young people there is no future, which is why ‘youth’ will continue to be a spearhead of our policy. Most importantly, we are not just talking about young people, but embracing their values to help rejuvenate the image of the historic vehicle world.
It’s evident that good communication has a key role. We’ve expanded our efforts in this regard considerably over the past year, including a record number of press releases to raise media awareness, and the hugely successful symposium in Bucharest in late July, titled ‘Restoration: Art or Science?’, illustrates another key part of our strategy. Protecting, preserving and promoting mobile heritage is what we all do, internationally and nationally, day in, day out.

                                                                                       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
