The old Valiant throws a shoe, but help is at hand

Following our well-attended April meeting, 26 members in their classic cars enjoyed a drive to Liston.

Unfortunately we were unable to see the newly-finished Cobb and Co Coach, but did have a lovely picnic in the park before returning home.

Frank Caldwell had a mishap when a tyre on his old Valiant blew up but there was plenty of help to get him going again.

We were pleased to support the Transport Museum's Show and shine with 20 cars in attendance. Could all members please contact President Steve if they are available for this year's ANZAC parade?

There will be no Ladies Luncheon this month and next month's run will be a Mothers Day run to Glen Innes and the Bowling Club for lunch on May 5.

Until then enjoy your classic motoring. Club contact: President Steve (02) 6736 2862.
