FE-HR Holden Owners Club ACT Receive New Flags

18. March 2014 09:32 by Rare Spares in General  //  Tags: , , ,   //   Comments (0)

In 1987 the FE-HR Owners Club of ACT was started in order to cater for Holden enthusiasts with a shared passion for 56-67’ models, introduced after the FX-FJ’s and before the first Holden factory V8’s.

Over the years the club has opened its doors to include members who have an interest in any Holden model, whether their vehicles are restored show cars, modified street machines or modern vehicles.

The club has been involved in a number of fantastic events: they have hosted several ACT Holden Day events, the 10th FE-FC Holden Nationals in Jindabyne NSW during Easter 2005, the 9th ACT Holden Day in 2007, as well as the 8th HD-HR Holden Nationals in 2009. The club also runs monthly activities for their club members and participates in local and interstate runs and displays with many of the Holden Car Clubs of Australia.

Most recently, on the 16th February, the club has participated in a drive to Malua Bay, NSW. They have also recently held ‘Scotty’s Run to the Cotter’ – an annual event held to commemorate one of their own club members, Scott Dunkley. An exciting upcoming event for the club is ‘Shannons Wheels Day’ on the 16th March, in which the club will have their own car display.

The FE-HR Owners Club ACT INC. was recently awarded four feather flags for their continued loyalty to Rare Spares.  Standing at 4.6 metres tall, these flags will ensure that the club will not be missed at future events they are part of. 

“The flags look great,” said Graham Pryce, Club Manager.

 The club was able to redeem this fantastic reward with the points they had accumulated through the Rare Spares Loyalty Club. The Rare Spares Loyalty Club rewards loyal customers! Registered car clubs receive exclusive discounts and points which can be redeemed for great rewards like marquees and flags and other promotional items.

The Annual Kiwanis All Ford Day was held on Sunday 16th February in Geelong bringing together lots of blue oval enthusiasts for a display of over 1,000 Ford show cars, car club displays, trophies and prizes, live music, kid’s rides, food vans and more.

The slightly overcast weather didn’t deter all the Ford fans and families who came down for a day of entertainment.

The annual festival is one of the biggest Ford events of the year, with appearances from Ford motoring legends Alan Moffat and John Bowe, bands and celebrities gracing the stages, autograph signing sessions and a Ford production development vehicle display. Rare Spares were there in full force, with a trade stand and voucher give-aways.

A Word From Cam McConville

13. August 2013 10:19 by Rare Spares in General  //  Tags: , , , , ,   //   Comments (0)

It's been a crazy month since my last post with Rare's but I have finally taken the foot off the gas pedal for a few days.

After kicking off the HSV Drive Experience in sunny QLD, I flew to Austria for a FIA Young Driver Academy. This three day driver camp is something that I can now reveal to all of our Rare Spares Facebook fans that I will be running in Australia for CAMS! This was the European version run by former F1 pilot, Alex Wurz and in October I will run the Asia Pacific version in Sydney. The camp focused on driving skills, fitness and sports physiology, all valuable skill sets for a budding race driver.

After just three days in Europe (via Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dusseldorf) to get there it was straight back to Brisbane for the Queensland Raceway V8 Supercars round.

Finally on the Sunday night I flew home but only for four hours sleep as our HSV Drive Days kicked in at Sandown on the Monday morning. Bruce (our lucky Rare Spares winner) had a ball and I Iook forward to having more Rare Spares guests along later in the year so stay tuned!!

Cheers,

Cam.
