VCCA (NSW) Yamba 1&2 Rally. Once again the mysterious Holty has produced a fabulous album of images for your enjoyment. There are a couple of his shots below but you can see the lot HERE. His coverage of our 2016 all comers Yamba event is also worth a look. Our appreciation and sincere thanks to Holty!

BURNETT REGION RALLIES - May 2018. The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival is widely regarded as the absolute zenith - the ne plus ultra - of Queensland's cutural calendar. In recognition of its pre-eminence we managed to organise two rallies that wandered the district's roads before eventually coalescing to add something new to the aforementioned Festival. As luck would have it both Greg Hill and Pam Guthrie kept photographic records.
VINTAGE CAR CLUB OF QUEENSLAND'S ANNUAL CONCOURS - June 2018. Once again lots of wonderful cars and happy enthusiasts graced the historic Ormiston House precinct. The veteran cars on display added the right layer of motoring history, nicely offset against the vintage, PVT and occasional post-war cars. Photography by Brian Carson.
OLD WHITEY: BRISBANE-TOOWOOMBA RECORD RUN RE-ENACTMENT, 5 July 2018. Old Whitey is the legendary 1912 Overland car used by Fred Eager exactly 100 years ago to set a new record time for the Brisbane-Toowoomba journey. Today Graeme Crittenden, with son Paul driving, carried out a wonderful re-enactment of that feat in the same car, now 106 years old. Well done to the entire team that made this happen! Thanks to Brian McMillan, Wolf Grodd, Pam Guthrie and Rhonda Guthrie for the images.

ANNUAL VETERAN & VINTAGE SWAP MEET - 18 August 2018. Always a pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning, snooping through other enthusiasts' junk without having to appear nosey. In addition to the blokes' goodies for sale there was a period clothing stall and an upgraded BBQ menu - heaven! Brian McMillan photos.
BULLOCKY REST INAUGURAL GATHERING - 23 August 2018. Seven veteran cars, a '50s Chevrolet and a couple of moderns made for a great turnout on a day that was perfect for swanning about in old cars. After morning tea (pikelets, pocorn, bikkies and what have you) some pressed on to the Old Petrie Town Museum. Photos from the President. .
NATIONAL VETERAN VEHICLE TOUR - September 2018. Forbes, NSW, was the focal point of a week's veteran motoring, exploring, socialising and (allegedly) relaxation. A strong Queensland contingent made up a significant portion of the140-strong entry list. And a little earlier and not far way, in Orange, the Overland National was held. Some of the pics below are of that event. Pictures from Greg Hill and Rhonda Guthrie.
LONDON TO BRIGHTON - Queensland version! November 4, 2018. We started in London St near the clubrooms and finshed in the "Brighton" carpark down by the bay. This was complete with crowd management by Town Crier Sid Norman and the cermonial ripping, by Hugh Kimlin, of the dreaded Red Flag. A hot day but a great turnout and faultless route sheets!!!
