Veteran Car Club of Australia (NSW) holds showcase event in Camden: Photos

A dozen beautiful vintage cars rolled into Camden on Sunday.

Macarthur residents had the opportunity to get up and close with some pre-1919 cars as part of the Veteran Car Club of Australia’s (NSW) latest major event.

The vehicles came from across the state and the oldest car on display was a restored 1908 Renault.

Veteran Car Club of Australia (NSW) president and Mount Hunter local Doug Fulford said it was a great day out despite inclement weather.

Mr Fulford said some of the cars were immaculately restored while others remained unrestored and had their original point job.

“The cars created a lot of interest, people were taking photos with the cars and asking us lots of questions,” he said.

“We brought along period costume for people to get dressed up in and everyone seemed to enjoy that.”

The event was held as a fundraiser for Lifeline and some vintage cars lined up outside the Camden store.

A Lifeline spokeswoman said the event raised more than $300 for the organisation.

Mr Fulford said his club was proud to support Lifeline.

“Lifeline does a great job and we try to support them where we can,” he said.

Mr Fulford said he was proud to bring the Veteran Car Club of Australia (NSW) to Macarthur on the weekend.

He said he had moved to Mount Hunter 30 years ago but had long been interested in vintage cars.

“I’m 63 now and I got involved with the club when I was 21 years old,” Mr Fulford said.

“I first found out about vintage cars when my best friend’s father was restoring an old car but I’ve always been interested in old things that work.”
