2017 Events Calendar

26 February 2017 - Visit to Pickers & Collectors Bazaar - 10 Blamey Place, O’Connor.

We kick of 2017 with a drive to see this wonderful warehouse full of millions of fascinating collectable items from many vendors. Meet at 2.00pm at the riverside intersection of The Strand and Ardross St, Applecross. We’ll have a simple, short route set for the drive or ride to our destination. They’re providing afternoon tea. An event ladies will enjoy as much as their menfolk. Please RSVP to Stef Brayley if you’re coming.

What an excellent start to the year! Paul Blank organised a brief drive along the route of the 1940 Patriotic Grand Prix through Applecross. Who knew there was a Grand Prix in Applecross? You can read all about it here - It was terrific turnout too, with Peter O and John W in their Renault 750s, Stef's Alpine A110, the Blank's in their new Citroen DS20, Darrell and Sue in their Ford Mustang (a newcomer to SIVA events), Mark and Heidi in their beautiful Chevrolet Corvair, and Walter attending in his Jaguar XK150S. The Schelfhouts, Gordines and Long's also attended in modern cars.

12 March 2017 - General Meeting
At Peter S's place @ 2pm.

Sunday 26 April - German Car Day

This year, the event takes on a new format, with the focus on the gathering and display, forgoing the convoy drive of previous years. The metropolitan location for this year means we expect to see an even larger gathering of cars. We're getting excited!

For participants, the gates will be open from 8:00 am and all vehicles are to be in place by 10:00 am. Cost of entry is $10 per car, with all proceeds going to our chosen charity, Wheels For Hope. Cars are encouraged to stay in place until 2:00 pm.

General admittance for spectators will be from 10:30 am and there is no cost involved, however we encourage you to make a donation to Wheels For Hope.

Sunday 9th April - Classic Cars and Coffee

We’re thrilled to announce Classic Cars & Coffee has a new home – a gorgeous location in the picturesque grounds of UWA in Crawley.

Sunday, April 9th the carpark will be open from 8.30am to 10.30am for owners and appreciators of fine cars to congregate and chat among some of our state’s greatest classic and exotic cars, over a coffee or tea.

Our ‘test event’ late last year brought out a tremendous variety of cars and many questions of “When’s the next one?” Put aside a couple of hours on April 9th and join in… It’s free and there’s no need to book.

Sunday 23 April - Classic Car Show

This year's Classic Car Show received a bit of a facelift with Paul Blank and Paul Markham both on the organising committee. The show was held at Ascot Raceway and generated a very positive response from public and exhibitors alike. SIVA members put on an impressive display of unusual vehicles this year. For photos
