    Hi Members

    Well, I hope that you are all enjoying the new look Ive brought to our Club newsletter The Hot Ones. I read a lot of media editions online, and have even published an e-mag for my own business, and thought it was about time that the Club started to catch up on where the rest of the world has started heading... Steve did a fabulous job, and has left me some big shoes to fill, and I hope that I am able to live up to the task I put my hand up for!

    Do you like the idea of having a front cover like a proper print magazine that you would buy at the Newsagents? Personally, I do, and I think that the future is in selling ourselves the way we want to be seen - a club full of gorgeous mechanical creatures that are driven on the street as well as being of such a standard that they can {and do} regularly take out top honours at shows like the Victorian Hot Rod Show.

    Im also toying with the idea of having a monthly {or perhaps quarterly} centrefold... Bowtie centrefolds, that is! What do you think? Members cars preferably, but internet gorgeous-ness {like our cover} could be an option too.

    Now whilst I may work for myself, so am able to prepare the magazine in off-hours, I would really prefer to get the bones of every edition sorted quickly, with only last minute edits done when necessary, so in my second act as Editor (first being the new look maga-zine), Id like to bring in some rules. Nice ones though...

    Rule 1*: Can all newsletter content please be submitted by the last Wednesday of the Can all newsletter content please be submitted by the last Wednesday of the Can all newsletter content please be submitted by the last Wednesday of the Can all newsletter content please be submitted by the last Wednesday of the month, so that I have time to edit if necessary and make it look as good as possiblemonth, so that I have time to edit if necessary and make it look as good as possiblemonth, so that I have time to edit if necessary and make it look as good as possiblemonth, so that I have time to edit if necessary and make it look as good as possible

    Rule 2* Id like good size images wherever possible, preferably in their original size, Id like good size images wherever possible, preferably in their original size, Id like good size images wherever possible, preferably in their original size, Id like good size images wherever possible, preferably in their original size, not made smaller to make it easier to email.

    Presidents Report Well, well, well. What happened at the last AGM?

    . I had it worked out with Karl to slip onto the committee in an easy role as Vice President, so I could look and observe at how a committee runs, and ended up with a more challenging role.

    All of you who know my general working week (interstate trucking) will know, Ive only been to two meetings before and generally havent got the time to be on the committee. Well thats

    changed due to taking up a local contract job which enables me to be home every night. And because the presidents job wasnt going to be filled in a hurry I thought I would put up my

    hand and have a crack.

    When I got home that night the First Lady (she was the cook, but that title changes during my time in office!) was not surprised, and knew that I wanted to contribute to the club more. The 2

    kids (I want this and I want that) were rapt, they thought they were getting a limo, body guards, personal assistants, and the odd helicopter ride but I had to tell them not this time!

    Anyway Im going to give it a go and it may take a few months for me to get settled in but please be patient and Ill do my best. Ive got a few good ideas and so does the new commit-

    tee ... which may bring a fresh outlook to the club.

    I must say though, and Im sure I speak for all members, I would like to thank Ross Anderson for his time in office, Steve Peterson for all the challenging and late nights with the newsletter, and Peter Liston for working the website. Therefore we welcome David Desira as Secretary/Public Officer, and Juli Stertern-Gill as Newsletter and Website Editor. To the remaining com-

    mittee members I look forward to working with you.

    The first areas I would like to see tackled (and some of these may have been achieved by the time this goes to print) are:

    the newsletter update,

    website update,

    an e-mail service more used,

    and committee/member friendly

    which will keep all members, especially long distance members, in the know, more member at-tendance to monthly meetings, increasing our members total, updating our members listing and

    contacts, and having a great 2013 convention.

    Im sure theres more concerns and suggestions that will arise but Im confident we will tackle them when they do. But please if you have any concerns or suggestions, put it forward to a

    committee member and we will do our best to address it.

    So to end this I hope I do a worthy job as President as others have in the past and thank you to all the members who have tapped me on the shoulder saying if you need help, give us a call!

    Drive em hard,Drive em hard,Drive em hard,Drive em hard, Greg RoweGreg RoweGreg RoweGreg Rowe.

    From our ex

    Hi Members,

    Since the last report I did for the July newsletter I have been on two outings, the first being the celebrations at the American 236th Anniversary of Independence where Bob Stertern-Gill had his 1966 Impala with my 1957 Convertible and a cou-ple of Ford mustangs as the Guard of Honor leading into the Fox Museum. (Tim Perrin gave a report to the members at the last club meeting of the proceed-ings)

    I also went on the Lets go Cruisin MID WINTER CRUISE from Frankston to Sorrento on Sunday 8th July. There was an observation quiz for the entrants. I decided to just go with the top down which was a bit chilly for my friend Martin, so we decided not to do the quiz and to just chat on the way to Sorrento. There were at least 250 cars, Hot rods, pickups and utes turned up at Sorrento. Weather was great. Lots of our club members were there with there families. The observation quiz was won by Heather and Peter Liston with them missing out on only one question. They took home a big hamper for their effort, well done guys. (If you go to Lets go Cruisin website there is a big report with a photo of most of the cars that went on the cruise)

    On the weekend of 21st,22nd July a few of the club members went to Sydney to visit the Motor Ex show. Michael Kibblewhite was telling me about all the new cars that were unveiled at this event. He said the standard has now moved to a higher level again where a lot of the paint jobs are totally out of this world, motors look like they are never to be started etc. This now seems to be the show where
