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.

  CHMC DONATES $1000 TO  DISASTER RELIEF FUND

Just as Council did in 2019 to assist with bushfire relief efforts, the CHMC has again donated funds to help the CWA in its work helping flood disaster affected communities in NSW.

Club Delegates at the AGM in Temora in April 2021 unanimously voted to send $1000 to the Country Women's Association Disaster Relief Fund.

Whether it be floods or fire, or other community needs, when their communities and those nearby need help CHMC clubs across NSW step in to assist in various ways.

As well as donating directly via Council, our Clubs are very often involved in raising money or goods and services for local projects and needs, please support our Clubs when they are fundraising to assist those who can benefit directly from our help.

CHMC has prepared an information sheets for those whose historic vehicles or antique machinery have been impacted by fire or flood. 
These are provided copyright-free by CHMC to facilitate copying and distribution to those who most need this information.

Earth is a nicer place with motoring heritage!

Historic cars, motorcycles and other motorized vehicles are the best time machines one can imagine. They show the design and technique of their era, and when on the move the back-in-time experience is complete.
Their preservation is sustainability in the truest sense. They survived, while nearly all peers ended long ago as waste. Treating a product with care, even when it is a popular mass produced car or motorbike, is environment friendly, because it helps to reduce the over-exploitation of our Earth.
FIVA represents what was produced at least 30 years ago, and so demonstrates the developments in automotive technology. Like the first hybrid and electric cars, which were state of the art in the beginning of the 20th century. But the combustion engine took over, and since then powered virtually all movement of people and goods anywhere on Earth. Veterans deserve respect, and so it is for the veterans of the road, and the millions of people all over the Globe that keep them running. Historic vehicles aren’t owned for common transport tasks, but in the interest of passing on history on wheels from generation to generation. Therefore they need to be protected. FIVA 21/4/21

Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA) was founded in 1966 in response to an idea formulated by a handful of organisations representing the interests of historic vehicle enthusiasts within a number of different countries.

                                                                                       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
