Based on the 1st June easing of COVID-19 Restrictions and from CHMC's discussions with the RMS we advise:
HVS / CVS vehicles can be used for travel provided that Log Book entries are made for each day’s use. There is now no limit on travel within NSW
Normal policy for non-Log Book use applies, but a reminder from RMS is to re-read the RMS Policy for HVS to ensure Club and vehicle operator compliance
Clubs will need to keep a record of the name, address and telephone contact detail of each participant in a run / activity. Social distancing should be followed. Stay home if you have any symptoms, even if they are only mild. Further - NSW Govt Travel & Transport Information.
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
