2015 - a Year of Successes

18 January 2015 - Vintage Collective Markets, Oakover Winery
The Vintage Collective Market proved to be a really interesting and novel event. We put on a great club display which drew some attention. Thanks to all who attended and made a great day.  http://thevintagecollectivemarkets.net/ and https://www.facebook.com/Thevintagecollectivemarkets


Thanks to the cars on show we've decided to rename the club the "Red Car Club." 
Ian's Studebaker Hawl, new member Michael's Triumph Stag and Stef's Renault Alpine.
The original Volkswagen Ghia and Renault's challenger - Syd's lovely Renault Caravelle (styled by Ghia of Italy).
Richard's NSU Prinz drew a lot of comments.
Paul and Natalie's Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and NSU Ro80 also attended but could not be photographed because they weren't red. The red car row certainly drew a lot of attention and we acquired two new members.
 
8-March  SIVA Drive Another Car Day

Beautiful weather and a great turnout, including two new members and their cars and two members of the Fiat Lancia club, who participated in the fun. Attending on the day were a Citroen DS, DKW, Triumph Stag, Studebaker Hawk, Borgward Isabella, Lloyd TS, Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, Mercedes-Benz, Renault Alpine, Ferrari, Fiat and two JBAs.
What 'Drive another Car Day' is all about - smiles!
Thank's especially to Ian for organising things with the Motor Museum and Paul B for co-ordinating with the Fial-Lancia Club.

22-March  German Car Day

With around 250 cars and well over 300 people in attendance, today's German Car Day was bigger and better than ever! Thanks to everyone who attended; we certainly enjoyed ourselves and hope you did too (despite the traffic delays)!

With 70 cars in attendance covering 16 marques, the Rear Engine Car Show was an outstanding success. Kings Square was an ideal location, close to amenities, amply shaded, and with lots of through traffic. This event was without a doubt the biggest event SIVA has ever organized and was a tribute to dedication and efforts of our members, committee and friends. Thanks also to our sponsors, Shannons Insurance http://www.shannons.com.au/ and Mean Machines http://www.meanmachines.com.au/
