CLASSIC and veteran vehicles will be out in force on SUnday as the Gnoo Blas Classic Car Club joins the celebrations for National Motoring Heritage Day.

The day is an initiative of the Australian Historic Motoring Federation, the national body representing motoring groups, is always the third Sunday in May.

The objective of the event is to get as many classic, vintage and veteran vehicles out at the same time throughout Australia to highlight to government that the restoration and hobby vehicle movement is a significant force in the community.

Gnoo Blas Classic Car Club president Denis Gregory said the club will stage a short run starting at the railway station car park at 9.30am and travelling to Lucknow where the cars will be on show for about half an hour.

The cars will then return to Orange and go on show in Robertson Park on the Lords Place side for two hours from 10.30am.

Mr Gregory said people who were not members of the club but owned classic or veteran cars or motorcycles, were invited to join the run and the exhibition.

“Around 200,000 vehicles will be on the road throughout Australia representing more than 900 clubs,” Mr Gregory said.

“We like to do our part promoting these vehicles and the history of motoring and there’s no better way than to get out and show them off.

“And we’ve got some great cars of all makes, so we’d love people to head down to Robertson Park are see them.”
