2014 - the Year that Was

2014 was a great year for SIVA members, with a series of great meetings, great events, new members and new acquisitions. This year we welcomed Russell A, Thomas R, Colin F, Walter H, David S, Richard G, Ron D, and Tony B. Welcome aboard to you all and we look forward to seeing you at our events.
We also saw some new and interesting vehicle acquisitions by our members. Highlights include:
  • Richard G's acquisition of a Honda S600;
  • Paul M's acquisition of a Tatra T600 Tatraplan;
  • Stef B's amazing Renault PR1000-2 bus;
  • Peter S's 2 Renault 17's projects;
  • Fred S's NSU Prinz unrestored, running barn-find;
  • Aron's new, early Honda S600;
  • Paul B's Mercedes-Benz AMG 220 (well, as President of the Mercedes-Benz Club he really needed to own one!).
Projects that came to fruition this year were:
  • Aron's early Honda S600 was put back on the road;
  • Shelly M's VW Karmann Ghia completed its restoration;
  • Ian C's lovely little Lloyd, which can now been seen at the Motor Museum at Whiteman Park.
In 2015 we can look forward to an interesting year of events, the completion of some new projects, such as Tony B's Renault 4CV, Richard G's Goggomobil and at least one of Peter S' Renault 17s!

Rotary Club of Como Car Show 5 October 2014

SIVA members displayed 8 vehicles at the Rotary Club Car Show at Wesley College.




Unfortunately the weather wasn't entirely in our favour, which kept the numbers of exhibitors and visitors down.

But we did have a tent! Wesley College in South Perth is a great show location.
