THE COUNCIL OF HERITAGE MOTOR CLUBS (CHMC)

REPRESENTS HERITAGE, & HISTORIC & CLASSIC VEHICLE CLUBS THROUGHOUT ALL REGIONS OF N.S.W.

Heritage vehicles are not still here by accident, they survive because someone cared for them through time, or someone rescued them just in time.

Members of CHMC Clubs own, restore and preserve cars, trucks, motorbikes, buses and tractors that are over 30 years old, i.e. heritage, historic or classic vehicles. 

Some of those vehicles are more than 100 years old, others are from the 1980s, some are rare, some are unique, most are everyday vehicles from our nation's past. 

Their owners share one common purpose, to keep alive the sights and sounds of the vehicles, engines and machines that were an integral part of the automotive and transport history of Australia.
