DESPITE early morning rain, the sunshine squeezed through the clouds for the recent Bass Coast Historical Automotive Club parade event.
And what a day it was; with around 30 historic cars and their owners lining up to answer questions from the public at the ‘President’s Parade’.
The members received a warm welcome from the Inverloch community, with favourable attendance numbers.
Club member Brian Davidson thanked the Inverloch Lions Club for putting on a ripper of a barbecue.
“They did a fantastic job,” he said last week.
“The event was really good, we had about 40 people attend and we had a variety of Rovers, Jaguars, and other vehicles.
“We had placards on each car so people could learn about them. Visitors often want to know where it came from and what it’s like to drive.”
The President’s Parade was held on Sunday, August 12, the weekend after the club’s AGM – where all committee positions were filled.
“On behalf of the club, I’d also like to thank the Bass Coast Shire Council for allowing us to hold the event at The Glade, as well as the RACV for their support.”
They’re also planning an event for early October and are showing off their cars at the Inverloch Wooden Boat Festival in January.
Want to get involved? Pop into the Wonthaggi RSL on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm, for their monthly meeting.
They’ve got about 200 members and are always happy to see new faces.
