    2023 – 24 MEMBERSHIP FINAL


    Did you pay your VCCC of WA 2023 -24 membership renewal by 1 August 2023?

    If so, yay!! 

    If not, then you are considered to be an unfinancial Club member!!!!

    SOOOO, if you have your vehicle(s) on Concessional Licence, (404 or C4C) the Department of Transport will consider your vehicle as being unlicensed, as you are required to be a financial member of a DoT approved Car Club. That may have insurance consequences.

    Also, if you have not renewed your membership,
    this month will be your last copy of
    Early Auto monthly magazine.

    Index of Early WA Motor Vehicle Registrations
    Compiled by The Carnamah Historical Society

    The Carnamah Historical Society are delighted to share that our hugely popular Index of Early Western Australian Motor Vehicle Registrations has been substantially expanded with the addition of a further four years of registrations! Some of the gaps have been filled and the index now stretches from 1928 back to 1915.

    The updated index contains 96,429 entries and covers motor vehicles registered in WA for the years 1915, 1916, 1917-18, 1919, 1922-23, 1923-24, 1924-25, 1925-26, 1926-27 and 1927-28. It covers cars and trucks for each year and also motorcycles for earlier years.

    Dennis Lingane sent through the Obituary he wrote for The West – thought it may be of interest to members.

    It was great to see so many members this morning proudly displaying their cars. There were around 80 cars (veteran, vintage & post-vintage), a wonderful display from every era.

    This is one of our "new" Club events that we thought members might prefer, rather than all day events. The coffee service was provided by Mr Bean's Daily Grind - thanks to Tom for your great coffee.

    Larraine our Member Registrar, worked hard all morning to ensure that Krispy Kremes were dished out to our members. We hope that our new members found time to catch up with her.

    Thank you to all of the helpers this morning who assisted me, to ensure that everything went smoothly. Well done to you all, you do our Club proud ! Our lovely "raffle ticket ladies" Gail & Maria did a splendid job too !

    Winner of the 1st prize of a hamper is Peter & Edwina Carter, 2nd prize of wine went to our lovely Maxine Robins (VCCC Events Manager of the recent Curtin FM 100.1 Car Show). We hope you enjoy the goodies.

    It is still possible to opt out of receiving the early auto magazine by post and save yourself $20 pa, by following the instructions found by clicking on the link below. You may still change your preference up to the 30th June. After that date, no further changes will be possible until next year's (2023/24) renewal period. 

    As you have been advised, the Department of Transport requirements around concessional registration will require us to be quite strict on membership renewal dates going forward. Some members have advised that they are away during July and are concerned they may overlook their renewal. 

    Whilst the membership renewal invoices will only be generated and sent on 1 July, if you wish to pay early you may now do so, using a Credit Card and Stripe, on line, by following these instructions .
