One of the most popular workshop visits for club members each year is to Historic & Vintage Restorations in Blackburn. Over many years the craftsmen at H&VR have turned out some remarkable cars and complete restoration work on large numbers of classic cars, including many Alfa Romeos. An invitation has been extended to AROCA Vic club members to visit the these unique premises.
At any time there are many different classic cars undergoing various degrees of body and or mechanical restoration in the H&VR workshop, so this will be a great opportunity to talk to Paul Chaleyer and Michael Ponchard and see how the professional vehicle restorers go about their work of bringing classic cars back to life.
Vintage and Classic Register Captain Ron Loccisano has organised a Sunday outing to Daylesford market with a delightful lunch at the nearby Farmers Arms Hotel, located only minutes walking distance from the market which club members have enjoyed on previous occasions. As is the norm for Club outings such as this there will be coffee break/pit stop of around.30 minutes at the halfway point of the run.
