Registration & Picnic Day 13th June 2015

Registration Day began cloudy, threatening rain but then cleared to beautiful warm sunshine.

We had a good roll-up of 13 Hillmans and one modern, 19 members and 3 visitors.  All had a good time socialising and inspecting all the cars while Gary attended to all the paperwork. 

Then it was lunch time and more car talk, after which we headed for the museums with Vern leading the way and explaining all the machinery and its history. This was fine for the boys but not of much interest to the girls. 

The homestead was next, which was of much more interest to the girls, all furnished as it would have been at the time it was first built. After much browsing and re-living the past it was time to head for home. 

This must have been the best rego day ever.  Thank you Vern. 

Thanks for the report Kim Bolin.

Members' Vehicles

HOCA has approximately 60 members from mostly NSW, as well as some interstate members who are the proud owners of about 75 Hillmans and a number of Commer trucks.

Vehicles range from the early 1930's to the mid 1970's. Many are beautifully restored, some are in original condition and others are in the process of being restored. 

Some vehicles are on conditional registration, while others are fully registered.

Whatever vintage or condition, each vehicle is very much enjoyed by its owner and proudly displayed whenever possible.

History of Members' Cars


This section of the website is dedicated to providing information and interest about our member's vehicles. The vehicles come from far and wide. Some are in original condition, whilst others are either partially restored or completely finished and on the road. They are all very much loved by their proud owners!

We hope you enjoy reading their stories and seeing their photographs.
